    Ok. So who do we hire if we fire Caldwell? Seems to me if there was a better head coach he wouldn't be available. And if one gets fired and we hire him we get right back to where we were.The head coach job in Detroit has been a revolving door for two decades. we've had 7 head coaches and Caldwell has been the best at winning games of all of them since 2000. Yes Caldwell is the head coach and responsible for what happens but he doesn't play the game. I don't have the numbers in front of me but hes' won more games in his time than two previous coaches combined . We don't have the personnal to get it done. The fault is on the players

    This isn't a bunch of guys that meet up for pickup games. These are men that are drafted or hired by one person.

    If the players suck, its that guy's fault. It's pretty much 90% of his job...to put talent on the field.

    I am too loyal so its not like I am going to jump ship or anything. But I feel the only way out of this mess is if the Lions as an organization no longer exist will I then be free.

    Maybe we were trying to make a statement saying that we can beat them short handed? Like psychological mind games?

    I think this is how most Lions fans feel. My wife asks me all the time why I don't just start rooting for another team. She just doesn't get it.

    Lions fans are amongst thee most loyal. You would be hard-pressed to find a fan base that has suffered as much as we have still supporting our club!

    Yeah I can't do it. Ive tried rooting for other teams when they made the playoffs and we didn't (as is tradition), but it doesn't feel the same. They lose I don't care. They win I didn't care. I know we all get a great satisfaction from a lions win, and I can only imagine a Lions playoff win. But man all these years and still no playoff win. I mean 1 since 57. 60 years, so I do believe I will die before they win one.

    I feel that someone needs to tell you, you will definitely be dead before the Lions win anything.

    Sorry buddy.

    You commented on its his fault but
    You didn't answer my question of WHO do you replace Caldwell with.

    Sorry didnít see the question.

    I donít think any coach can come in and win with this team. The problems with this franchise run much deeper than one coaching spot.
