Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

I hate when good coaches get the ax because of a lack of QB play.

Not only that, but when you have GM that sucks too. They never thought about addressing their O-line issues either.

I feel bad for Joey Harrington. Poor guy can't even drop back without getting pressured time and time again.

I hope Mariucci finds a new team and succeeds.

Maybe we should bring him in as an offensive consultant. It's not his fault Detroit has sucked, its Matt Millen's.

Probably headed to a college team, or Green Bay.

Could this mean an interview for Greg Williams in Detroit?

bad move i think. mariucci is a good coach, dont know how they think they will improve by firing him. what they need is better quarterback play and for their team to grow up, because they have little experience

Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

Typical move for a franchise that hasn't won since Moses was a baby. This move is a year early, if anything. Coaches need three years, at least, to implement their system with players suited to execute it. This would be like Snyder firing Joe Gibbs at the end of this season. Sure, the Lions were doing worse, but were much worse off than the Redskins to begin with.

What if the Chargers fired Marty Schottenheimer after two seasons? Why is Matt Millen still the GM?

Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

Actually Scottenheimer was almost given the axe after the season that gave them the #1 pic good thing that they didn't gave in to the media pressure. In this case you're talking about a losing franchise that are desperate to give some spark and have a winning season as good as M. was he didn't took the best of his players I guess he will go to college after this.

No NFL team will hire him also Matt should get the axe he was the 1 that drafted 3 Wr in high pics in 3 consecutive years if they have problems is that they didn't address other needs.

Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

You know, while you watched the game it wasn't very difficult to figure out why he was fired. The announcers were commenting on how he was complaining about Mike Williams and how he didn't know how to practice. Well, then, as his coach, you teach him to practice. If he doesn't listen light his ass up and hold him out of games on Sunday.

Stop being such a p*ssy and jump his ass for not putting up. If guys aren't practicing hard, don't let em play. Take a stand. And, btw, make a decision at QB you dumbass. I don't feel sorry for Mariucci he brought it on himself.

First of all, why take the Detroit job. That team sucks and Millen sucks and Millen will do whatever he can to avoid blame.

Second and most important, did anyone else think that this guy didn't know what he was doing on Thanksgiving? First, he yanks Harrington when Harrington wasn't even playing that bad. Second, he yanks Kevin Jones who is better than anyone else they had. Finally, he didn't even look like he cared that they were getting crushed.

I believe that once a coach thinks it is acceptable to lose he needs to move on.

Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

millen is the one that needs to go. Coach didn't have an oline or even a decent qb. bad deal.

Re: Mariucci fired as Lions Head Coach

I'm sorry to disagree with you again jdlea, but I like Mooch. They didn't give him a chance. It's actually sort of nice to see Marty doing well in San Diego. Remember how people were saying he's cooked, he's done, he's a loser. Then, after giving Brees an adequate opportunity to play and Marty starts winning he's named the comeback coach of the year.

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.
