USA Today put together a list of the top coaches in the NFL.
Normally, I don't give much thought to these type of faux ranking lists, but I found it interesting to see where the Lions' Jim Caldwell ranked.
He is not much higher than several first-year head coaches, sitting at 25th.
Curious as to your take on the job Jim has done, and where you feel he should be ranked out of 32 NFL head coaches.
Also, this GIF is magical:
The writer thinks Swann's argument is ridiculous. I agree with the writer.
In a press conference today, Calvin Johnson announced that he is considering retirement, and should have a decision coming by next week.
He's been injured on and off the past couple seasons, but as the Lions best player, it would leave a huge hole.
Also, typical Lions...
The team has hired Rod Wood, the former CEO of Ford Estates, to be the new head of the franchise. This comes two weeks after the Lions fired team president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew as a signal of change within the organization after a 1-7 start to the season. The Lions also announced they have established an advisory board to search for a new GM. It consists of owner Martha Ford, her four children and Wood. Martha Ford said the advisory board potentially will use specific members of the NFL's Career Development Advisory Panel to assist in the search.
According to Schefter, Lions have not hired a search firm to help find a new GM.
I was afraid this might happen. Let's hope they tank the rest of the way or there's a chance Caldwell keeps his job and Sheldon White is named permanent GM.
Last time this happened, I was in grade school.
A number of you were not even born yet!!
POSBANG worthy indeed.
The new Detroit Lions sponsored bowl game at Ford field (which ended the "Pizza Bowl's" reign there), finally has a name. The game, which which match the B1G against the ACC on Dec. 26th, will be known as the Quick Lane Bowl. Quick friggin' Lane Bowl.
Why not bring back the Cherry Bowl, or heck, even just the Ford Bowl would be acceptable. I guess I shouldn't complain too match about having a bowl game in Detroit against 2 major conferences, but I somehow tricked myself into thinking it wasn't going to be called something absurd. Silly me...
