Other Detroit Teams
The Detroit metropolitan area has had a long standing history in professional sports as it seems they have had a team on the ground floor of each major sports league. These teams, despite long dark periods, have never moved cities and always been based out of the motor city. Other than the Lions, Detroit plays home to the Red Wings, the Pistons, and the Tigers. Each has had success over the years but none can match the winning prowess of the Detroit Red Wings.
The Pistons have been a dominating team in the NBA over the years as they have had two dynastic like periods. One came in the 1980's and other came after the turn of the millennium. The Tigers have been known to stay on the outskirts of the American League of the MLB but have won their share of World Series titles. However, Detroit is also known as Hockey Town in the United States because the Red Wings have been like the New York Yankees of the NHL.

Detroit Lions History
In 1929, the franchise that would later become the Detroit Lions was founded in Portsmouth, Ohio and started out as the Spartans. However, due to the bad timing of their foundation, the Great Depression would almost do away with this club after their inaugural year. They moved to Detroit in order to get more fans in 1934 then changed their name to the Lions. They have been based out of this city since 1934 with no signs of changing.
Unfortunately for Lions fans, this team has been perennially on the back burner of the NFL as they have not won a championship since 1957. They are one of the sports franchises that believe they are cursed because they traded their star quarterback at the end of the 1957 season, Bobby Layne, who stated that the Lions would not win a championship for fifty years. As it turns out, Layne was more than correct because it has been over 50 years since this team has won.
The Lions are the only non-expansion team to never reach the Super Bowl, though they have made it to the playoffs nine times since the merger. The last time they went was in 1999 when star running back Barry Sanders had his last year playing for this franchise. Since the turn of the millennium, this team went winless in the 2008 season causing them to become get the first pick in the NFL draft. They used this pick to draft Matthew Stafford, their new franchise quarterback and coupling him with offensive weapons like Brandon Pettigrew and Calvin Johnson. The team now looks to continue with the momentum that has been created and to once again be a force in the NFL.
