So once again people are calling for the heads of Detroit Lions Coach Matt Patricia and General Manager Bob Quinn. This time it come after a pathetic 20-0 loss Sunday to the Carolina Panthers. The Lions are now 4-6.
Detroit News sports columnist Bob Wojnowski writes:
This was everything wrong about the Lions, every reason this regime must be fired, all stuffed in one tidy package. No energy, no depth, no coaching creativity, no offensive line, no defensive line, no secondary. Did I miss anything? No shot.
Dispirited, disorganized, disgusting. And also, done.
Matt Patricia and GM Bob Quinn are done, and the Lions played like a team that knows it, succumbing meekly to Carolina and a backup journeyman quarterback 20-0 Sunday. Any kind of a run is a fantasy now, and all that’s left is for owner Sheila Ford Hamp to make the ousters official, at her earliest convenience. Whether it’s today or after Thanksgiving or after the season, it has to happen, the sooner, the more merciful. There’s nothing here worth keeping, and that includes a significant chunk of the roster.
