Fords... what losers they are.

If I was a billionaire, I’d buy the Lions and run the franchise based on Twitter polls.
40% want to draft Aaron Curry?! Time to pull the trigger.

dwt should be the QB Coach. After all, he knows all there is to know about the position.

Let"s do a go fund me project.

It will take about 2 billon maybe more with Ford Field.

Plus we will need a good chunk to be able to pay wages aand contracts.

We can do this packer style with the fans owning the stock.

My salary requirements for the front office will be reasonable.

Just wait until you see who's up next in the "I get to run a football team" family tree. Probably even worse.

I get the anger toward the Lioms but what is Ford supposed to do exactly? Fire Quinn or Caldwell or both?

Martha seemed to be more aggressive with cleaning out tthe cupboards 2 and a half years ago than her hubby. Her biggest bad choice was retaining Caldwell for the new GM.

For some reason Caldwell must really shine in closed door meetings or he has naked pictures of Martha as
Quinn kept him and extended his contract 1 year for 2018.

I see Quinn as the problem more than Martha.

I say Martha needs to fire both and start the process over. I am sure all that will happen is Caldwell will get fired.

The Fords are an unmovable problem. Unless Martha’s children would be willing to sell the Lions, this won’t change for a long time.
Sure, Martha made a solid to good decision to hire Quinn. Coming from NE, feels like Caldwell is opposite of Belichick when it comes to style. Especially aggressiveness... NE and their 4th down attempts cost me so many fantasy Gostkowski FG attempts this season.
Belichick’s Defense vs Caldwell’s conservative QB coaching... how prepared NE teams usually are.

Maybe he could work with the nutritionist staff, with his special meatball recipes.

Martha poisoned the well right from the get go by basically saying that no incoming GM was going to be allowed to fire Caldwell. That Quinn agreed to that was a sign he wasn't going to be the man for the job. He's just another ass-kissing crony. He can go too, for all I care.

This franchise needs a complete enema, where everyone is fired, including ownership. Until the Fords sell the team to someone who demands results, nothing will change.

Is there a scenario where the league could force an owner out? I'm sure they can't do it here but just wondering.

Well, the only reason Jerry Richardson is selling the Panthers is because the NFL was going to make him sell it, but that's because he's both a racist and a sexual harrasser.
