(ESPN 96.1 Grand Rapids)   To solidify their position as the worst franchise in the history of the NFL, the Lions just hired a guy named Jim Bob Cooter as their QB coach. *Bonus* He's got an arrest record that doesn't include naked DUI through a Wendy's drive-thru   (espn961.com) divider line 31

He sounds like a good ole boy.  Maybe he'll get through to Stafford, maybe not.  But if he can't, there's probably a NASCAR team that could use a name that cornpone.

The greatest name any back-up QB at the University of Tennessee has ever had.

Should have been the long snapper.

I don't think anyone who couldn't unseat Eric Ainge should have a coaching career in the NFL.

Whatever...as long as they come up with a decent season. Seriously if the guy is good and it works out for them they'll look like geniuses. If it doesn't then they are just the same old Lions. And like any battered spouse they know we'll keep coming back hoping this time will be different.

\screw the superbowl a playoff win would make me happy.

the worst franchise in the history of the NFL

The Lions aren't even in the top five on that list.  Right off the top of my head:

Browns (old and new), Raiders, Bills, Vikings, Jaguars, all reliably worse.

No Bengals? Really?

Any team that actually COUlD win a playoff game, but refuses to because it is not profitable for the owner... that has to be the worst.

NOT a Raiders fan, but would you REALLY consider them as one of the five worst franchises ever??????

During my lifetime, the Raiders, Bills, and Vikings have put together periods of sustained success, and gone to several Super Bowls each (although the Vikings and Bills didn't actually win any). The Old Browns are the Ravens. Detroit and the New Browns are probably tied for biggest turds, with Jacksonville running a close 3rd.

Whatever. Denver liked him and Caldwell likes him enough to bring him in to help.  The dudes name could Poopy Pants for all I care as long as he makes Matthew Stafford stop being a moron.

A guy named "Jimbo" won the BCS championship. I'm starting to believe Hillbillies can coach.

The only thing that could make Matthew Stafford stop being a moron is a trade or outright release. Detroit is second only to Cleveland as a place where quarterbacks go to die. Not even Megatron can save them from that fate.

Anyone that says the lions arnt the worst or second worst franchise in the nfl is down right dumb. The Browns give us a strong competitor but they're too new to be held too seriously.

What is it nearly sixty years with one playoff win?

One playoff win. I hope we make it to the super bowl sometime in my or my 2 year olds life.

57 years, one playoff win and this coaching staff seems to be the most incompetent since Millen took over.

what do the Browns, Lions and Bills have in common?  Egotistical histories.  If you name your stadium after a person, your franchise will suffer.

By franchise win/loss records in NFL games, the bottom 5 are:

Saints .442
Falcons .432
Cardinals .419
Texans .413
Bucs. 392

The Packers (Lambeau Field) disagree with your assessment. As do the Redskins (RFK Stadium), the Jets (Shea Stadium) and by your criteria (since Cleveland Browns Stadium was apparently named after Paul Brown and not the team) the Steelers (Heinz Field) and the Buccaneers (Raymond James Stadium).

It has nothing to do with ego. It has everything to do with terrible ownership and poor management.

Say what you want about Jim Bobs, but IMO you can never have too many Cooters.
 
2014-02-09 09:38:28 PM
The Cleveland Browns would like a word with you about worst team EVAR. Also when Mr Jim Bob Cooter was a backup QB at UT the announcers would trip over each other for oppertunities to say his name when he would come in a game 4th quarter when we was up.
 
2014-02-09 11:23:23 PM
oh this is where mr. cooter has gone.  good for him.
