  1. Championship Week 1 Round with trades

    I kind of disagree with this, both from my own opinion and my opinion of what Quinn would do. I see him thinking, look what my defense became when we got Snacks and he was good. Also I see the "Patriot Way" tendency which is to spend high picks on interior defensive linemen and not on defensive backs. I think they'd take Brown over Okudah, and I think that's what I'd do, too.
  2. This is what we locals call a "Lions Slam Dunk" so Nazgul is technically correct
  3. LIONS BRINGING PATRICIA AND QUINN BACK FOR 2020

    Yes it is totally that. They are damned till they win. If you think that's not fair, tough. I didn't put them in that position. Oh and my position would be the same as it is now: everything they do is laughable. Again, not my invention.

    The point is that everything this staff does is awkward and laughable

    Or, you know, being realistic. As diehard said, 7 times in 58 years? That's a pretty solid body of evidence

    Haha now Pasqualoni and Davidson are out too, but they got to go a couple of days later and claim they were going to live on a farm with a nice family, lol. We're going to coach the damn Senior Bowl and our whole defensive staff just got whacked. Hoo boy.
  7. LIONS BRINGING PATRICIA AND QUINN BACK FOR 2020

    The defense got a little better during the season last year, and they added players, so I thought maybe they would continue to improve. I wasn't extremely happy with Patricia then but I thought they had done enough to get better. Instead they jumped off a bridge. so now we've talked about what I said last year. Masterful attempt at deflecting from the issue at hand since your "what if they make the playoffs" thing failed. So now let's get back to it: you have no actual analysis or football-related arguments that Quinn and Patricia should still be employed by this team or that they will succeed next year, even at the nonsensical goal of "being a playoff contender," whatever that means. You have "what if a miracle occurs," "i'm afraid of change," and "you thought they would succeed in the past so now your observation that they are terrible is invalid." Not very persuasive so far.
  8. LIONS BRINGING PATRICIA AND QUINN BACK FOR 2020

    Nah, a whole season with the 31st ranked defense did it. We were under .500 with Stafford btw. Going back and digging in someone's old posts, you realize, is the #1 way to show someone is getting under your skin with arguments you can't refute.
  9. Picking #3

    I already explained this is a dumb question because it will not happen. You have to prove to me there's some kind of realistic chance will happen before I will entertain the possibility. The Lions have not earned anyone's hypothetical positive spin on the future. Furthermore, I refuse to answer this question in good faith because it's not being asked in good faith. You're only trying to steer the conversation back to a positive note, for me to say "ok yeah if they go 10-6 my opinion will change" so you can say "that's a reasonable answer, congratulations" and then we can go forward with the hope that our little dreams will come true. We can totally ignore that Patricia has been so, so bad. That Quinn - in FOUR years, not two - has failed to improve large parts of the team, and it isn't just an understandable part of the rebuilding process, but ongoing tactical mistakes, like leaving two gaping holes in the roster for 2019, pass rush and backup QB, that killed the team's chances to win. Both of these guys objectively deserve to be gone and as far as I see it, the further damage they probably will do in 2020 warrants them being removed immediately. You have no fact-based, football-based refutation for this where you can give me actual reasons I am wrong (I'm not). All you have is "well what if a miracle occurs" and "I'm uncomfortable with change."
  10. Picking #3

    What does that have to do with anything?
  11. The Short Term Playoff Push Quinn/Patricia Offseason (Mock)

    hahaha yeah god knows we wouldn't even want to put the completely impotent, meaningless "compete for a playoff spot" ultimatum on them, it might make their little backsides seize up and make them go 5-11 instead of 7-9
  12. Picking #3

    You know what else is detrimental? Hiring people who are terrible at their jobs
  13. LIONS BRINGING PATRICIA AND QUINN BACK FOR 2020

    Haha. Tubby couldn't even bear to fire the fossilized Pasqualoni because he's his mentor from 1000 years ago. Instead they sacrificed the assistant strength and conditioning coach and the LB and DB coaches who couldn't have coached up Deion Sanders and Ray Lewis to succeed with that absolute nothing of a pass rush.
  14. Picking #3

    Are you being sarcastic here because honestly I agree with all of this. You get two years to show your coaching makes a difference. Not the Super Bowl but noticeable improvement. If not, bye bye. If you're a defensive coach and after two years your defense is #31 in the league, bye bye.

    Complete trash for the Lions. Trash, trash, trash.
