    You can make a football out of pigskin
    But you can't make a football team out of a Matt Millen created pig's ear.

    We all know that the GM is just a figure head.
    All the Lions woes are because the HC didn't/couldn't:

    a.
    Sign any quality Vets.
    b.
    Draft quality players.
    c.
    Work the salary CAP.

    etc etc etc.
    (LOL, I crack myself up sometimes)
    ;D

    Seriously, I feel sorry for the guy but wouldn't want him as my HC.
    Although alot of the issues related to this team can be traced directly to the FO, others can be traced to the coaches and the scheme they run and the system used to get the players ready to execute that scheme week in and week out.

    It's nice to see the people here not blaming the HC for Detroit's woes.
    Why is it different than the Vikings?

    Re: NFL Coach of the Year

    It seems like Marinelli is probably a good guy, a hard worker and an honest coach.
    But the problem with voting for him for coach of the year is that even though he has some good qualities, he appears to lack the qualities of a good coach.
    That is, he doesn't have his team prepared to go out and win games every week.


    We can talk about how bad the roster is, but in the NFL every team has a reasonable amount of talent.
    That should translate into at least a few wins if your coach is doing a good job getting the team ready.

    So I think Marinelli has been a good sport and good loser, but not a good coach this year.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    Because most of their opinions are based on what the sports hacks tell them.
    Been trying to convince the mindless masses since I started posting on the next (let alone this site) how a real NFL organization is run.

    Now I just sit back and push out jibberish like above cause it humors me....

    Yes, that would have guaranteed them the cellar for another 3-5 years.

    My vote would be for Smith, Sparano, Fisher or Dungy.
    interesting... why?
    Dungy hasn't really done much this year?

    Dungy should be in the discussion every year...

    no, thats like saying sharper and birk should be pro bowlers every year.
    Of course Dungy is a great coach, but his team is having a down year (I wish a down year for the vikings was a whole 4 losses)
    This often goes to a team that comes out of nowhere to win, or a team that exceeds expectations...
    for example, the Bears a few years ago.
