Good news

It just depends on who they replace
Hopefully nobody from within the organization
They’re superb candidates from Chiefs , Colts and ravens to serve as next GM

It won’t matter. They will still lose. Until the Ford’s sell the team, losing is all they will do.
The new Ford is much different
She actually fires

It's pretty amazing how a franchise can be so bad for so long.
Yes. They are one of the oldest franchises in the NFL. Starting in 1934. They were one of the great teams of the 1950s, winning three league championships. Since 1957, they’ve won one playoff game. Keep in mind, they’ve seldom made the playoffs since 1957. Ford bought the team in 1963. Lots of different coaches and players over the years. The only constant is the Ford family. Losers.

You need to recall the numerous coaches they’ve fired since 1957. She has no clue, just like William Clay Ford.

Imagine Barry Sanders on a good team
He should have been. Had the Packers chosen him as the number two pick (after Troy Aikman), he would have been in the backfield with Bret Farve and won championships. Instead they chose a steroid infected offensive lineman who amounted to nothing. This has to be the dumbest draft pick of all time.

Steelers didn't pick Dan Marino because of his drug use in college at Pitt and it said pick a lineman who a few weeks into the season paralyzed himself in a drunken car crash while speeding late at night

The Lions had to do it, that team sucked and was going nowhere. As a Lions fan since forever, I'm running out of time for them to get their shit straight.

Why don’t they hire the director of player personal from the KC C
That is what the experts are saying

Jim Caldwell had the best record. They said they didnt like his play calling abilities. He lost two playoff games. This guy Patricia was going to take us to the next level.

Im so glad they fired him. Better late than never. Clearly he over promised and under delivered. I’m sure he would say it’s not his fault and im sure there’s probably some truth to that but sorry, if you can’t get it done we need to find someone who can make average players better

Jim Caldwell was a great head coach. He took the Lions to 9-7 seasons twice, plus he had one season at 11-5. This is a feat almost no Lion coach has accomplished, in their 63 years since their last championship. No small feat for the worst franchise in all of sports. Maybe they could hire him again.

Caldwell's record as Lions coach was 36–28 (.563), making him the first Detroit head coach (who lasted at least one season) to have a winning record since Joe Schmidt, who led the team from 1967 to 1972. Caldwell's .563 winning percentage was the best for a Lions' head coach since Buddy Parker in the 1950s.

That is a possibility, but I think the Lions will take their time to review possible candidates before making a decision. Bevell is their interim HC, if he does well over their last 5 games maybe they'll give him the job. Or not, I dunno. My personal preference is a defensive-minded guy that will finally build a decent, respectable Lions defense.

True because the Ford family still owns them, but at least they’d be respectable. That’s all lion fans can ask for.
