How long was Caldwell extended? All I can find is "multi-year."

Extended as far as Martha could stretch it.

Excuse me now, I have to vomit.

Caldwell does need to be fired, but that is only the beginning. Still has too much stench from the Schwartz days.

DE, RB, OG, C are the needs of most importance off the top of my head.

The issue is you can't pay your QB $27,000,000 PA to be a game manager.

Stafford is a gunslinger. He's on just as much as off. You need to build your offensive philosophy around that or let him go.

Don't sign Ziggy. He'll want too much money for a guy that can't stay healthy and only had one good season.

Their running game is an issue regardless of what they pay Stafford. It's shit and it never helps them. In fact it hurts the passing game. What they ask of Stafford is the opposite of a game manager. Game managers rely on defense and running games to manage wins, that is not the Lions

Well, Caldwell TRIES to ask him to be a game manager... then after the seventh first down run goes nowhere and the defense has given up a 17-3 lead, he begs Stafford to hurry up and make it a close game.

Not to mention that 2/3 passes are screens and quick outs within a few yards of the LOS. This hardly helps soften a run D. You’re not moving safeties or other coverage off the ball.

GBs RBs regularly suck but Rogers takes so many deep shots Ds have to play honest and it opens opportunities for them.

The O this coaching staff runs lacks personnel, strategy, or basic common sense. We have finesse RB who weight less than 200 lbs and they use them like a power running game....not to mention we run the same shit on the same downs every possession.

What was with that sideways flea flicker? The flea flicker works only when a team is scared of the running game. Not one safety is cheating on the run against the Lions.

If I’m Quinn...I get with the team Dr.s and find something wrong with Stafford’s ankle. Put him on the IR, let riddick take the helm, and watch the team quit on Caldwell.

Quinn gets a higher draft pick and an excuse to fire coach ambien.
