First Head Coach Replacement Rumor--Matt Patricia

Recommended Posts

I wonder if the lack of resources put into our front 7 where with Patricia bringing a 3-4 defense here in mind.

I have doubts about Patricia. The Patriots are the only organization he's ever been with. At least McDaniels has been a HC before. I don't know if the state of the Lions right now is a good fit for a first-time HC.

I don't want to go through another rookie coach who gets two years to either catch fire or lose the fanbase.

I like the idea of Patricia or Vrabel. Keeping JBC as OC. I think it would be prudent of either of these coaches to hire a mature and experienced DC. Someone that has had experience as  HC and could be the Assistant HC. There is such a learning curve and the team is in "win now" mode. Stafford and the offense aren't really the problem. An improved defense with a running game and better protection for Stafford, we should be in much better shape.

Pats defense is one of the worst in the league this year from a yardage standpoint. They lack talent but you promote a coordinator that is able to over-achieve with lesser talent. I also haven't seen them develop a lot of their younger prospects recently. I haven't heard too much buzz about either Patricia or Vrabel as far as other team interests so it seems that Quinn may be relying on his roots too much if these guys are top candidates. You also have to consider who would be the DC under either of these guys? A current Pats positional coach? Hmmm...

New rumor today is that he is more interested in the Giants job.  Hope lions have a backup plan?

The back up plan would be Vrabel or Wilks. If they go with Vrabel, we would need to get someone in with some prior experience as a HC or Assistant HC in some capacity. Let Vrabel be the rah rah, leader of men and have the coordinators do the scheming.

Reports also say nick saban covets the giants job. It’s just news for the sake of making news.

What do people see in Vrabel?  The DC of the worst scoring defense in football, worse than the lions last year in yards per play.  All with arguably more talent than we had.  I get that he is a name but he has proven absolutely nothing at the NFL level as a coach.

how about Greg Schiano for D cord if we go with Vrabel as hc.. also heard Matt Patricia still may be in play for us.

I actually would have no complaints about that. Brings exactly what I think he needs - a former HC that will help out on D. Let JBC run the offensive show. I wouldn't mind bringing in Tom Cable as OL Coach. Again, more experience and a track record of success. Learn from their mistakes and have good counsel.
