  1. I'm interested in others measuring sticks as well. For me, I will give them the same courtesy I did Quintricia. Since I'm not overly ecstatic about these hires or direction this team seems to be moving, I'm on the "I'll give them the benefit of the doubt although they absolutely don't deserve it" wagon. I will give them 3 years to prove they are moving in the right direction. This will even be more necessary if they trade Stafford, which I don't believe to be the case. With Stafford, I will expect them to be at 8-8 by year two and looking like an NFL team. Year 3 competing for a play
  2. Holy !*&$ The end is near!!!! j/k. I'm really on the fence on this one. It was not my preferred, but I'll try to support it. I do feel a little better about this hire than I did Quintricia and Marinelli. So there is that. The coordinators are going to make it or break it for me. If we land a staff of all 1st time play callers, I'm going to hate this.
  3. You're a Lions fan...this is where we belong.
  4. I think he is going to be the hire as well. I will hate it if it happens. ***Edit*** I think it will be one of these 3. I am thinking it will more than likely be Bowles, but would not be surprised with Bevell either. I think Lewis is more of an outside shot, but more likely than an up and coming rookie coach. Bowles 1A Bevell 1B Lewis 2
  5. I read that article as well. He also made the point Holmes was fifth down from the gm where others interviewed were closer to the gm. I took that to be more of his point.
  6. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/lions/2021/01/13/detroit-lions-gm-search-brad-holmes-ozzie-newsome/6652745002/ Ok, now that its done. I wish this guy well. Some compare him to a young Ozzie Newsome. Now admittedly, I would have rather had Newsome, but if he's half as good, well maybe 3/4 as good, I'll take it.
  7. It just seems like a Lions move, lol.
  8. I'm calling it now, Bowles will be our new HC.
  9. As a Lions fan, there is a fine line between pessimism and realism ~ LionArkie.
  10. I'm with DHLF on this on almost every point. I really think this is not a 1:1 comparison with other teams in the league. The Lions have never done anything. There are expansion teams with more success. This team has no top person who has built anything in terms of football or won. So, we brought Spielman in to help, that's great. Remind me again what he has won? It's a feel good story. Rod Wood is still in charge, but doesn't know football. This is looking awesome. Now, I'm admittedly disappointed in the hire. I was hoping for Rick Smith. He had a playoff experienced team, drafted well r
  11. I think it is a whole lot easier for a rookie GM to succeed in an established NFL team with a history of winning or has at the very least experienced winning during their owners tenure. If we were the 49ers, Ravens, Broncos, Packers, etc. I'd be more inclined to agree with you. However, we are the Lions and I think the task is a little different than a top 5 rookie qb. Maybe I'm just putting more on the position than necessary.
  12. I mean...we did draft an athletic, receiving TE who couldn't catch.
  13. I have a strong inclination it is going to be Riddick as well. I don't know how I feel about that, but I think he is a top 3 candidate and depending on the hc choice possibly #1.
