It's weird for how lauded he seems to be by players, how quick he is to throw them under the bus after they retire en masse.

And yet he is coach of the Detroit Lions

This is probably the best lions related news Detroiters will get all year.

Poor kid.  As a Lions fan, the rest of the season will be all downhill for him.

Fun fact.  The NFC Central lasted for 33 years.  In that time span, the Lions won the division as many times (3) as the Bucs despite the Bucs being in the division for 9 less years and also being the pre-Dungy Bucs for 30 of those years.

If only they'd had a decent running back for even, say, a third of those years.

Most of their stuff sucks, absolutely, but sometimes they share something half decent.

That's some B.S.

Sometimes they have good content. But any publication that, after its founder is credibly accused of multiple sexual assaults, has many of its employees take to Twitter to gush about how honest the founder is is gonna get an ew from me.

Like, they weren't tweeting about how they thought he was innocent or how they didn't think he was someone who would do such things. They just, en masse, tweeted about how honest he is.

So. Ew barstool.

"[The NFL's] not for everybody. Not everything is easy about it, and it's not just about football. I wish [Obeid] the best of luck. He's a great kid. He was a grinder. He worked. On with the next endeavor."

"Now, I'll say this: Three of the four were, from the time they got here, you would have never guessed something like this. To each his own, and everybody is different. But these guys did everything right. They worked hard. And it just, hey, they felt like it wasn't for them. All good."

Doesn't sound like he was throwing them under the bus.  They realized they had no chance to make the roster and rather than waste everyone's time in camp, they moved on.

They had one of the top 3 backs in the history of the game for 10 years. And Billy Sims for 2 MVP caliber seasons. How is it B.S. to say they could've won more Central titles?

I don't understand this mindset. Is it the years of casual misogyny? Lazy racism? Or the rapist president? You can't have it all.

I know that snark, negativity, sadness and cynicism rule the day, but can we just be happy that people could be this damn cool?

Did the lions ever build a good team around Barry or was he kind of on his own like Megatron?

I remember an episode of Home Improvement where Tim meets the qb of the lions and says he didn't recognize him at first because the qb wasnt lying on his back. As Stafford should know personally, you can't do anything when you get murdered 0.5 seconds after the ball is snapped no matter how many times you get back up.

I think your sarcasm meter needs a slight adjustment.

He doesn't hand out participation trophies. Weird for today's world isn't it.

For a guy who has no idea what words are going to come out of his mouth next, he sure does talk a lot. I didn't realize leadership meant being a buffoon.

93, 94 and 95 the Lions had some pretty decent teams but they had garbage at QB. They had a couple all-pro guys on the O-line, had a good receiving corps, and had a good defense.

Are you confusing him with Matt Patricia?

Are you criticizing him because he couldn't fix the Detroit farking lions one season after Patricia finished erasing any progress the team has made in the last decade? Nevermind that many or most of their losses were close games, which is already an improvement vs Patricia. When your team doesn't hate your coach, the difference is clear.

Sweet, he now has a career head coaching record of 8-20.

But at least no participation trophies!
