This year was always gonna be terrible for so many reasons:
Rookie HC and coordinators
Unga bunga, tiny brained ex-players as coaches
Drafting injured players
Hutch is undersized to play with hand in the dirt
Team severely lacks talent
Goff is an average QB at best
Hock was over drafted
Kicker situation is a mess
Benching AO was dumb
OLine not as good as advertised
And spoiler alert, the Lions will suck again next year.
The only one I’d disagree on is about the oline. They’ve played very well despite being hammered by injuries. The lions have been able to run the ball against some of the best defensive fronts in the nfl. They even ran pretty well against the Patriots. Pass protection hasn’t been great but it hasn’t been bad either. Goff has a clean pocket more often than not.
People need to look on the bright side more. There are some positives in this start. For instance, before the season I was worried about Aaron Glenn leaving for a head coaching gig. And now I don’t have that worry anymore.
Yes most of understand that it’s a rebuild.
I still think the team has done a good job in getting an offense despite the horrific showing today.
It may take two more drafts to get this thing turned around.
Now let’s talk defense…
D-line is below average
LBs are probable at the bottom of the league.
D-backs- well there are injuries but clearly no depth.
Next two years have to be defensive oriented in the draft. I don’t see why any free agent will go to the Lions right now.
Very disappointed in today’s result but it was a dumpster fire to begin with and it appears the flames have not been put out.
