If so, then Quinn needs to go too.

But I might consider Rudock

I mean, we saw Riddick with a short pass tonight, and I was not impressed.

Disagree....Quinn was saddled with a shit cap situation and has drafted pretty well IMO. His biggest failings have been Caldwell and failing to address the RB situation (which probably had something to do with listening to Caldwell)....if he mans up and fires Caldwell despite the recent extension, Id actually feel pretty good about him.

If he does that, he has to do it without the fake cover of a made up injury. But you did say to put a running back at the helm of the offense.

I get you.

I don't agree with 'sucking for Luck'. BUt if it happens (coaching change), Quinn has to stick his neck out and do it - and own it, not play shananigans with fake bullshit. Enough of that in politics.

Regardless of who Stafford is as a qb they need a running game. Living with 2nd and 12 and 3rd and 10 over and over is too hard to consistently overcome. And a word of advice - too much key lime pie can give one the shits.

The difference between drafting 10 and drafting 20 is huge.

I don’t care if Quinn owns it or not....I want Caldwell gone and a shot at a difference maker in the draft. Winning out and missing the playoffs by a game does nothing for anyone.

Well, I disagree on that. But that's fine.

I mean, you might be right..... A #10 can get you Ebron.

And fontes, sorry to hear about the McShits.

I don't remember a running back that they continued to use for so long that has been so thoroughly ineffective as Abdullah.

I want the GM who can do more with the #20 pick.

Abdullah probably sings really well in the church choir.

Stafford needs to go see a shrink after this season.

I'm serious. After I read about how dejected he is after a loss, and how he keeps the weight of the history of the franchise on his shoulders, it may be no wonder he goes out and shits the bed in big games.

He needs to understand that he does need to produce, but the franchise sucking for so long has nothing to do with the current situation. Don't worry about the miserable past the fans have gone through, just go out and focus on the game before you and take control of that.

If he doesn't go see a therapist then the Lions should just put him out of his misery and trade him to Buffalo.

There is a good chance that if they went with Rudock and lost out that they would keep Caldwell and use the 10th pick on Ebron's replacement.

If you could guarantee me a better coach and a game breaker, I would be on board with Nick's plan.

Surely they will consider dumping Caldwell. Coach contracts never guarantee anything.
