We're totally improving to 1-15 next year

(espn) ...

The franchise revealed subtle changes to the logo and how the word "Lions" is spelled out during a news conference Monday attended by dozens of fans.

Detroit stumbled to the NFL's first 0-16 season last year and has the first pick Saturday in the NFL draft.

The leaping lion appears more fierce, while the team name features an italicized slant.

The team says the changes are consistent with its "sense of mission and direction."

New trim lines also have been added to team uniforms. The team's Honolulu blue, white and black colors remain unchanged.

Furthering the discussion on how the Italicized Slant is consistent with the team's "sense of mission and direction", the team spokesman has unleashed the Guido Beach offense. The Italicized Slant will be the key play of this new Offense, featuring quick passes to receivers who will flex for the cheerleaders before avoiding contact over the middle. "Why the name Guido Beach Offense?" He continued... "Well, we figured it already looked like a mess and smelled like shit, we might as well run with the theme!"
