The Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns apparently have the most miserable fans in the NFL.

According to a survey from Lineups.com, the Lions have the most miserable fans in the league, and the Cleveland Browns are right behind them in second place. The Jets, Cowboys and Eagles rounded out the top five. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

As a Lions fan, I can speak from firsthand experience just how miserable being a Lions fan can be at times. It takes a heavy toll on your soul.

Stop and think about some of the talent the team has had that we did absolutely nothing with. Barry Sanders is the greatest running back ever. He wasted his career and retired early. Calvin Johnson is the most physically gifted receiver in NFL history. He also retired early and never won a playoff game.

Matthew Stafford is a generational gifted quarterback when it comes to his arm, and again, never even won a playoff game in Detroit.

It’s hard to believe all that happened. At least with the Browns, they occasionally taste a little success. The Lions don’t even get that. If the tweet below doesn’t sum it up, I don’t know what does.

If you weren’t born as a fan of the Detroit Lions, just consider yourself incredibly lucky.
