Not to worry, though; Tony Romo is back and the Cowboys are turning things around. The same can't be said for the Lions, however. At least according to Williams.

"They're staring 0-16 in the face right now, just going by the schedule," said Williams, who talks or texts with several of his ex-teammates on a regular basis. "I hope it doesn't happen, because I think I'm still a part of that team, too. I started out with that team, so if they go 0-16, I've got an asterisk by my name on that team. I hope they don't go 0-16." ...

"I don't see where the one would come," Williams said. "Maybe Thanksgiving [against the Titans] - the undefeated team vs. the defeated team."

As PFT's Tim MacMahon notes, the Lions' remaining schedule looks like this: home against Tampa Bay, Tennessee, Minnesota and New Orleans, and road trips to Carolina Indy and Green Bay.

Hmm. I'm not seeing a victory in there, either. That said, nobody thought the then-winless Bengals would beat the Jaguars two weeks ago, and that's exactly what happened. Of course, Detroit was humiliated by Jacksonville last week, so maybe that's not the best example.

By the way, is now a bad time to point out that the Matt Millen-led Lions never won fewer than two games during his reign of terror?
