The Lions have a long history. They started out as the Portsmouth Spartans in 1930 before moving to Detroit in 1934 and becoming the Lions. In their 79 years then have won four NFL Championships (1935, 1952, 1953 and 1957), but since then they’ve only won one playoff game in 1991.The Lions have two current players who can become all-time greats, one of which has made this Mt. Rushmore. But when most people think of the Lions these days they think of two things, 0-16 and Barry Sanders. It is no doubt that Barry Sanders is the greatest Lion of all time by a long shot. He’s the Lions' all-time leading rusher by over 10,000 yards. Picking the best four was actually easier than I thought it would be.
