    I agree with everything you say. 

    I did not agree with the decision of hiring Matt Patricia, because I believed he and Quinn would not challenge each other’s thinking (they haven’t) and because I believed he would not be able to win over a locker room of NFL players (he hasn’t).

    But it is true they were competitive early in the season and have had a disastrous run of injuries. 

    It is also true that nobody is coming in to take over this roster, tailor made for the Patriot-lite system, and retool it on the fly into a winner. 

    If Quinn can patch up the roster, Patricia can get the defense to turn the corner, and they have good luck health wise, maybe they make the playoffs. But if they brought a new regime in now, it would be a complete tear down. 

    I find it hard to believe that a coach at the NFL level cant come in with the existing personnel along with a couple of changes and run a 4-3 or 3-4 and be 100x better. 

    The current D scheme is the worst I've ever seen.

    If the Lions lose to Washington and then to Chicago on Thanksgiving, I think Quinn and Patricia will be fired with that 10 day break.  Dareel Bevell will be elevated to Interim Head Coach.      

    Patricia is a joke.    Worst defense in the league and that's supposed to be his strength.    

     

    What's making them look even worse is that Driskell is playing pretty well and is not the reason they lost the last 2 games.  

    I would feel better moving forward in which Bevell finishes out the season. IMO with the way Driskel has played, makes it even more obvious that MP & BQ needs to go.

    Quinn needs to go.  Are we in any better shape than we were when he got here?  I don't think so.  

    Probably not.  But I think its the duo of BQ and MP.  The  DEF scheme is awful. How many more guys do they need to make it successful?  I would think a new coach could come in, install a 4-3 with the personnel they have and be ok.

    Why? Apparently doctors cleared him to play last year. What difference would sitting last year make this year? I know it's in vogue right now to blame Lions management for everything, but this is clearly a medical situation. If he were cleared to play, he would be playing. 

    Because it appears to be the same injury.
