A controversial game-ending call in Dallas notwithstanding, the Detroit Lions have been having a magical season, one that long time fans have been waiting seemingly a lifetime for.

The team has clinched their division and will host a playoff game at Ford Field for the first time ever. The team would be just a few steps away from a Super Bowl appearance, a thought that Lions fans couldn't conceive a few years ago and perhaps only dared to dream of when things started getting good under coach Dan Campbell.

So what would Michigan sports fans give up to see the Lions hang a Super Bowl banner? The question came up on The Detroit Line Facebook group over the holiday season when the Pistons were enduring their record-setting losing streak: How quickly would you accept a Pistons team that doesn't win another game all season if you could trade that for a Lions Super Bowl Championship team.
