Despite being 7-6 and leading the NFC North, the Detroit Lions are just like Rodney Dangerfield, they get no respect. Yesterday, the Lions dropped a game to the Philadelphia Eagles 34-20. The game featured blizzard like conditions and saw Eagles running back LeSean McCoy rush for 217 yards and 2 touchdowns. After a debacle on-the-field yesterday, the Lions are being heckled by some fans today.
According to wide receiver Nate Burleson, during a radio interview today he said he was heckled by a homeless man during charity work today.

Apparently the homeless man was not very impressed with the Lions lackluster day in Philadelphia yesterday. Or, maybe this man thinks performances like yesterday will lead the team to miss out on the playoffs and miss another opportunity to get their first playoff win since 1992.
Life must be tough for Detroit Lions fans but I am not sure what is worse being a Detroit Lions fan or being heckled by a homeless man about your play on-the-field.
