The Detroit Lions have won just one game in the last 50 years. The team has never won a game since a player claimed a 'curse' on them in 1958. Who was the player who claimed this supposed curse?

The quarterback was played by Robert Lawrence Layne, who played in the NFL for 15 seasons (December 19, 1926 – December 1 1986). He played for chicago bears in 1948, the bulldogs in New York in 1949, the lions in Detroit in 1950-58 and the steelers in Pittsburgh between 1958-62.
