I'll be honest at this point I'm kinda hoping we just go 0-16 so Quinn and Patricia both get fired and we get a completely new front office, coaching staff, and Trever Lawrence in the off-season.

Will it happen? No.... But a guy can dream

Trade Stafford and it will happen.

Lions just took a delay of game violation on a FG attempt that would have tied the game, and ends up punting. Matt Patricia is an f’ing moron.

It might just be me, but I'm not burning a precious timeout in a close game just to try a long field goal. It seems as if his decision to punt worked.

Or they could have taken the tying FG 7 minutes ago and try to take the lead. 

I mean, sure, that would've been great: had they made the long FG, then pinned them on the 2 on the kickoff (which rarely happens), it could've happened that way. There's a pretty low chance of both of those things happening in that sequence, but that would've been great.

With the way Fox has been punting, trusting him to pin them deep was a better bet. It worked: we pinned, stopped, got the ball back and set ourselves up for a much shorter FG, and saved the timeout.

I’d rather trust our veteran kicker who has no issue kicking 50+ yd FGs and saved 7 minutes to score again. Poor clock management, poor decision making relying on a rookie punter to pin in at the 2 yd line.

He has missed two from 50+ this year and 58 is tough.  It worked out.  If they missed and AZ has the ball at midfield, game is over.

I’m weirdly optimistic about this game. I don’t know why.

Because you're a smart individual.
