Opinion: Two weeks in, Detroit Lions' season essentially over after flop in Green Bay
It's hard to find much reason for confidence in the Detroit Lions after Matt Patricia's crew got off to an 0-2 start this season.This time the Detroit Lions had the decency to implode in the first half, politely freeing up the rest of the Sunday afternoon for their heartsick devotees. It was the least they could do after teasing those who love them so mercilessly to start the game.

We premiere on UPN and got the network their first and only Golden Globe nomination in our first season before UPN merged with the WB to create what is now the CW. We were a big part of a small collective of shows that helped launch the CW to what it is today— Tyler James Williams (@TylerJamesWill)

"Everybody Hates Chris was Imani Hakim’ first audition," Williams wrote. "Very rarely does this happen first time out the gate. It speaks to how great and naturally built for this she is. She’s currently on Mythic Quest on Apple+ with some other very talented people. You should check it out."
And while Rock is understandably associated with the comedy, Williams said credit should also go to co-creator LeRoi.
"Chris Rock receives a lot of credit for this show, as he should," he continued. "But the man on the ground, everyday, running this show and making it the legendary show that it was, was @mrleroi. He is the answer to why this show worked. He’s a legend who deserves all of his flowers."
The 27-year-old performer also addressed the common question for all classic sitcoms — will there be a reboot?
"Its been a convo before but the interesting hiccup & blessing is that everyone in this photo is very busy," he responded. "All work regularly, in a variety of different mediums, genres, networks ect. We’ll keep trying but I’m proud of our scheduling issue."
The core cast has all been steadily working since the show ended. Williams starred in ABC's Whiskey Cavalier last year and is set to appear in Lee Daniels' The United States vs. Billie Holiday. Crews is a prominent figure on the small screen, with Brooklyn Nine-Nine and America's Got Talent keeping him busy. Arnold currently stars on CBS' The Neighborhood, Richardson is featured in BET's Boomerang, Hakim appears in Apple TV+'s Mythic Quest, and Martella is a prolific voice actor known for voicing Phineas in Phineas and Ferb.
