Ahhhh, if only our organization had the patience that other clubs have. Instead, we have a constantly revolving door with coaches and players coming and going in the hopes of getting better talent because we always feel that what we have is inadequate. Paging doctor Freud.
Now, as surprising as this is, I actually agree with pretty much everything you said. I agree he didn't get a chance there, however, I don't think he should have taken the job in the first place. I think the team is horrendous and they need a different coach than him.

I actually don't mind him, but I don't think that that team is in better shape than he found them. He jerked QB's in and out, which bothers me more than anything else a coach does. I think that this team needs someone who is going to be hard on them. I don't think a nice guy like Mooch was the guy for this team. They need a Marty type to bust their ass.

I think he will be successful somewhere, but that place is a debacle, he didn't help them at all, and it really didn't seem like he cared.

Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

I'd love to see Mooch come in as an offensive coordinator for us. I think our offense could be much imporved with him running it.

Mooch is from Michigan, I believe. Before he took the Lions job, he was courted by Michigan State University for head football coach. MSU was prompted by Mariucci's boyhood bud Tom Izzo.

When franchises have a long time losing record, the problem is always with the ownership and management and the organizational decisions they make. The Lions are a text book case. So is the Arizona Cardinals. So were the Cinci Bengals until Mike Brown agreed to step back and let more competent people run the organization.

The Ford family couldn't win even with Barry Sanders. He left in frustration. What does that tell you? The Fords decided to step back and let a football guy run things. They hired Matt Millen (owner decision) and extended his contract (owner decision). Millen picked the players (management decision) and hired the coach (management decision) to run the west coast offense, which was offensive (coaching decision). Millen fires the coach to "develop talent." So the players are looking at transitions in coaches and systems and game plans.


Who really thinks the Lions will be better in the next three years?

Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

Marucci is NOT to blame. Everyone knows it. MATT MILLEN is an arsehole JACKASS!!! Sorry if that offends anyone, but WHO??? WHO??? who continues to draft top WR's without any OL or substantial defensive help? And no moves other than Bly to really improve the defense? MOOOCH is a good coach and seems to be a good dude to boot. My question is how in the hell did Millen get a GM job? I mean I understand Bill Walsh, Parcells, Gibbs, Charlie Casserly etc. But Millen? Does this guy even read? He's a jerkoff dunce making tons of money making bad decisions. Vinny Ceratto stands mountains above Millen. Never was a big Niner fan or Mooch fan, but here DET firing him is ridiculous and a travesty to 'the way things should be'. I have a feeling if Millen doesn't suit up and play next season; next season will be his last as GM. BOO DETROIT!!! Bad mistake. Who ya gonna hire now? Williams ain't going there.

Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

Mooch is the fall guy and that's a shame in my opinion.

The Lions struggles start from the top down, Millen has been a train wreck as a GM.

Much like when Snyder first took over and canned Casserly, the Lions fired the wrong guy.

Well Dre Bly didn't hold back in saying who he thought was to blame

Man, whoever takes over that mess will really need to kick some butt to get that locker room back in order.

Sounds like they could really use a hard ass like Coughlin or Parcells.

I get the feeling Millen wants to take over as head coach

Millen should have stayed in the broadcast booth where he actually had a future.

Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

Reading Dre Bly's comments makes me appreciate a couple of things about my team.

One, things are actually worse in other NFL cities. And two, our players rarely if ever call names of people responsible for our losing record. Although Gibbs hasn't been fired...I still couldn't imagine any of our players throwing someone under the bus...but you never know in the NFL.

Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

The latest rumor is that Russ Grimm is the leading candidate to take over as head coach of the Lions.

Good for him. I like him and think he'll make a really good coach. So that would mean former Redskin Matt Millen as President, former Redskin Martin Mayhew as Assistant GM, and former Redskin Grimm as Head Coach
