That's right folks, the Lions have made yet another sound, competent decision. The only question remaining is will Mayhew et al be able to make the right personnel moves in the next, say, two years to get to respectability.
OT: Lions hire Gunther Cunningham as DC
for former Kansas City Chiefs finding work in Michigan :(
Cunningham was a solid DC before becoming a head coach. Hopefully both he and Greg Robinson fit the mold of crappy HC both good DC. We can only hope.
Sweet yellow-tinted glasses there, Gunther!!!
Gunther has a ton of experience, and his head coaching experience should really help Schwartz as a rookie coach.
The Lions have made two decisions that do not reek of incompetence, I hope they can keep it up during the draft.
I agree. Now, what I would like to see is for Schwartz to hire Al Saunders to be the offensive coordinator. I think he's one of the best offensive minds in the NFL.
Gun was absolutely horrible as a DC ever since he was brought back after getting canned as a head coach. He had multiple free agents and top draft picks brought in under his reign with great talent, and never produced a defense better than 22 or so. Chief fans are celebrating that he is leaving.
The Lions have gone from Tampa North to KC East. I hope this means we can sign Larry Johnson and the corpse of Derrick Thomas.
You forgot Elvis Grbac, Dan Saleamua and Neil Smith.
