Anyone think he’s gone today?
I don’t. I think Mayhew might be though, which is a very good thing IMO
Personally I’m kind of meh about it. Most Lion’s fans want him gone, but who’s going to replace him? The potential HC candidate’s don’t seem that great this offseason. I really wouldn’t have a problem if they got rid of him, but I would rather stick with him for one more year with a new GM and hopefully new coordinator’s, then go out and hire any of these potential HC candidate’s that are on the market this year.
I honestly don't know, but when you combine losing with national media attention for being undisciplined and essentially the NFL's equivalent to the old school Portland Jailblazers, there is a high chance something is going to change in the offseason. They aren't cashing in nearly as much as they could be on Calvin Johnson's status because of constant bonehead plays and actions by both coaches and players. Here are my thoughts:
- Stafford is not a franchise QB, he's just another QB with a cannon for an arm. He's bailed out by having Calvin Johnson. I was tired of all the sidearm passes early in the year and yesterday he took it to a new level with a sidearm, no-look pass that sailed past a WR in the flat. He's a poor-man's Favre without the great coaching and great team to cover up his mistakes.
- They should take Jarvis Jones or Dee Milliner with the 5th pick. I don't think anyone after Joeckel is a top-5 OT selection, so need a defensive playmaker. Maybe try to trade down a spot or two if somebody really wants Jones to get better value for Milliner?
- If Mayhew goes, so does Schwartz. I don't see them getting a solid GM who doesn't get to handpick his coach. With Suh, Fairley, and Leshoure all having off-field trouble, and Titus Young being a total headcase, Mayhew is definitely on thin ice since they were his picks. Is it worse to pick WRs every year who don't pan out, or pick guys who get DUIs, arrrested for weed, and purposely line up in the wrong spot because they aren't happy with their role?
I am a Giants fan & mightly frustrated how my team was this season to finish 9-7 and not make the playoffs. But to finish with 8 straight loses, I just can't justify giving Jim another year, he neeeds to be shown the door.

I think he's gone. Probably a huge long shot but i hope they dish out the money for Cowher.
Way too many other jobs open now that could entice Cowher.
- Bears w/ a strong defense and a few decent pieces on offense could be attractive.
- Eagles don't have a lot, but would be a challenge with huge benefit if he got them winning.
- Chargers are in a great climate and only have Denver to worry about in the division, which only has a couple more years of Peyton's best (right?)
- Jets if they fire Rex too would be a very interesting challenge.
- Browns - not likely, but they can spend $$$ if they really want him.
- Jags / Chiefs - no.
Almost seems like the Lions need to wait now because there are so many other openings that could attract the top guys they'd have to settle for retreads of unproven coaches?
I didn't think he was gone until I heard about Lovie Smith. If that guy is getting fired, Schwartz should be long gone.
No way the Lions get someone of Cowher's caliber.
I think he should be fired but I don't think he will be.
Bring Saban to the light side of the force we must
