Even on a bye week, the Detroit Lions have managed to annoy their fans. 

Lions fans lamented the monster day put up by Travis Fulgham, a 2019 Lions draft pick who now plays for the Philadelphia Eagles. Fulgham dominated the Pittsburgh Steelers secondary to the tune of 10 catches for 152 yards. 

Not bad for a guy the Lions though so little of, they waived him in August — a little more than a year after picking Fulgham with a six-round draft selection. (The Green Bay Packers picked him up and waived him as well, but it’s kind of different when you spend a draft pick on a guy.)

Lions fans, who got a reprieve from watching their favorite team play this week, are less than pleased.

I sense a pattern.

Another former Lion was part of a big play in a way Detroit fans are all too familiar with. Eric Ebron, everybody. 

Luckily for Ebron, the Steelers hung on to win despite his fumble (and a later drop).
