IMHO seems to be better suited towards college where he can be the type of coach he is.  Like I said, I can't explain it...I just like Shannahan better and I think Kelly is too much of a hot head.  Its just my preference if it came down between them.  Of course, I'm not the one making the decision. 

And no, I don't think millionaires are going to allow him to bully them, which is why I think its a bad match.  Or...more accurately, not the best match.

He's an egomaniac that had a good thing in Denver with a HOF QB...his time is over.

Brian Kelly is also overrated in terms of the NFL. He's not some innovator like Chip, he's not a great pure coach like Harbaugh. 

If you're going to go the college route, Bill O'Brien and David Shaw are really the only options right now and neither seem like options for Detroit.

With some of these names being thrown around I'll be counting Lion's coaching failures to go to sleep tonight.

  1. Rick Forzano
  2. Tommy Hudspeth
  3. Monte Clark
  4. Daryl Rodgers
  5. Wayne Fontes
  6. Bobby Ross
  7. Gary Moeller - included to list all coaches despite actually having a winning record
  8. Marty Mornhinweg
  9. Steve Mariucci
  10. Dick Jauron
  11. Rod Marinelli
  12. Jim Schwartz

I think decent options exist. I have total faith in the Lion's ability to screw this up.

Hey Little Nicky-  You have been a success at the college level, but you were a total failure at the NFL level.  Here is a chance to redeem yourself.  

On second thought, I'm not sure I can bring myself to cheer for a man that has sold his soul.  The funny thing is, a lot of the talking heads on ESPN are saying that the Lions job is the best NFL opening right now.  They do have a ton of talent.

If you don't want to cuss, cool.  Don't cuss.

If you do want to cuss say 'fuck, shit, cock, balls'... or whatever comes to mind.

Self-censorship where you write [email protected] or [email protected]#$# or whatever is just lame; have the courage of your convictions to spell the word our correctly (it isn't like we don't know what you are trying to say anyway...

I would like to see Shanahan on one hand, as I think that he might be the better fit for Detroit, and his QB coach was high school teammate of mine.

 

I would like to see Kelly on the other hand, as I am a Michigan fan living in SB and the sweet sweet Irish tears if Kelly left would be fantastic.

Why the hell not he's won at every level he's coached GVSU, CMU, ND. He's from Michigan so im sure he understands what lions fans have gone through all this time. He made be an asshole on the field but isn't that what the lions need discipline?
