Tampa Bay lost the first 26 games of their franchise's history, before beating the Saints and Cardinals at the end of the '77 season.
At least the Bucs had being an expansion team as an excuse. They were division champs by '79 though, which goes to show how quickly a turnaround can happen with the right people in place.
The Lions need to de-Marinelli themselves for that to have a chance of happening in Detroit though.
