I would say the season is over after 7 losses
I lost the pic of Tron getting punked by Cam when the forum was updated.
Not gonna find it again.

Mayhew knew all preseason the Oline wasn't going to be ready game 1 !

I thought Washburn was a good Oline coach.
But these guys are barely fighting.
They could drop to one knee with forearms making a shield with fists together about torso high.
And if the guy rolls inside or outside you could drive him that way.
But Stafford barely knows how to drop-back. Geezs man find some time to throw.

With 'Hew as the first non-white GM in Lions history I wanted him to get a fair shake.
After seeing and living thru the Russ Thomas dark age of 15 yr of crap football. 14 straight losses to the Vikes !
And Matt Millen's 7 yr of crap football.
So 'Hew got almost 7 yr. not too bad. 2 P/O seasons and we got to see one of the best defenses ever built.
But it took the firing of a coach to get to that great defense. [Schwartz's "Wide-9" wasn't good enough]
And the firing of Lewand and 'Hew by Martha Ford maybe wasn't a bad thing.
But I think it was the perfect storm of injuries, loss of talent and failure to rebuild those losses in one off season,
that doomed 'Hew.
He tried to replace 2 top ten picks with Haloti Ngata and Tyunn Walker. Not bad, but Ngata didn't practice due to a hamstring all preseason and Tyrunn
got his leg snapped on a dirty play by the Seahawks ! At least partly dirty on the Seahawk !
Add in the fact the best 4-3 LB in the league couldn't play at all due to a hip injury and that defense couldn't stop a college team.
I already mentioned the RT issue prior.
So they start the season 0-5 and are now 1-7, lights out all.
I figured a little drop off in D play but these guys had no chance even with T.Austin.

WTF ! Lions beat Pack in Whiskey for the first time in 23 yr !
-
So now they want to play ?
I have no idea what is going on. Pack was in a little slump but WTF ?!
-
The D shows up again and choke out the "Da Raidas" 18-13
Next they do the Eagles 45-14, Staff has a QB rating 138 his best ever !
Even if they win out I doubt they make the P/Os
Still it's nice for Martha Ford to get the fans a winning season.

---Mr. Jim Caldwell the Detroit Lions Head Coach


"It's great to have him back," Caldwell said. "Unfortunately, he didn't get a job, and I know it's tough for him ... and it's something he would really like to have happen. It's his heart's desire, and I think it's going to happen at some point in time. But in the meantime, we have a guy back with us that has done as fine a job adjusting to circumstances (as anyone), in terms of using our personnel. And those guys give him a chance to really do what we do best -- help us stop the run. And when you stop the run, you have an opportunity to obviously put some pressure on the outside with Ziggy in the pass rush.
*- J.C. talking about getting back Tyrell Austin after job hunting.-*
He is just so fortunate to hire these great assistant coaches and could lose his job if these guys get snatched up by other teams.
Because great Dcoord's don't grow on trees.
[they'll steal JimBob too] as of 7-2018 J.B. Cooter still with Lions

2018 season

So this is Bob Quinn's 3rd season, second draft.
It looks like Martha is demanding better results. And maybe meddling a little too much.
Bob has been investing in the offense to better improve their fairly good QB, Matt Stafford.
Not a bad idea but the Lions might still be soft up the middle. Last season the Lions lost
Haloti Ngata to injury half-way through the season. They were giving up 75 yd per game
rushing before the injury. They gave up 130 yd per game after. That's at least 4 more 1st downs
and maybe 3 minutes of time of possession ! And he wasn't replaced. The draft gave us a 4th
rounder named Hand but will he be ready ? It's pretty sure the new coach from the Pat's org.
will install a 3-4 maybe the Lions first attempt at this defense. Only a couple teams still run
the 4-3.
I think Quinn's done a good job up til now with FA like Marvin Jones and Blount.
Matt Patricia has to win now. Or maybe blow our socks off with a #1 offense or defense---no excuses !
-------------------------------------------------------
I'm thinking Stafford is what he is, a P/O quality QB with no P/O wins. Good enough to get you there
but not good enough to best other P/O teams. NO EXCUSES !

Philly at Dallas
12-9-2018
first play Dallas fumbles, you see the ball go between a Eagles knees. Later an Eagle gets up with the ball.
The play is challenged and ref after review says, " the ball was fumbled but unclear about the recovery".
The ref and the guys upstairs need to be suspended for 4 games at least !

- Kaepernick, Colin -
-

Amazing how he got the entire NFL community to eat out of his hand.
I wonder if, at the start, he knew what the end game would be.
Because the NFL just paid him to go away. The flag vs the people
is an interesting dilema. This country has only gotten better over
time. Well, kind of. The history of every country is tainted with
evil behavior.
--- Imagine the consternation of the fans if Colin was a starting QB leading
his team to wins when this happened ?! They'd be like, "Well let's give the kid a break."
What no one seems to exclaim is, Jim Harbaugh was the coach that made Colin.
When Harb's left he went straight down hill. A little like the Belicic/Brady combination.
Too bad Harb's hasn't figured out the BIG. He was great at Stanford.
