For how poorly the secondary here played this past year, I doubt many hearts will be broken around these parts.

This is an opportunity for a major upgrade in this area.

So maybe Bly actually isn’t going anywhere.

Deshea Townsend or Dre Bly may be the replacement here.

Why the nasty posts he like left for a raise an over all job change. Nothing wrong with that who wouldn’t leave for a nice pay increase? His Lion title was DEFENSIVE BACKS based on article he is responsible for more if you go by the title. secondary coach/pass game coordinator \we have his replacement already. defensive passing game coordinator Deshea Townsend

This moves leaves our coach rather depleted in terms of coaches named after :poop:

Best of luck, Brian!

I can understand why people wouldn’t be a fan with how bad the secondary was.

That said, glad he’s getting a better opportunity elsewhere. Hope he’s successful there (unless he’s in the Super Bowl against Detroit).

How many different corner and secondary coaches have the Lions now had the past 3 years?

Gotta be 4 or 5 at least. This is getting a little ridiculous.

Not trying to pile on AG… but it raises some eyebrows IMO

Guessing he’s leaving since he was passed over for passing game coordinator here. That’s OK. One of the few non-player coaches we had.

I wonder if this guy would be interested in coming home? Steeler Nation: Pittsburgh Steelers News, Rumors, & More

I feel like DC keeps everything very in house and under wraps in regard to coaching performance…Which makes it very difficult to tell if a coach is leaving for another opportunity having been a good coach, or because they are encouraged to leave due to shortcomings. It’s easier to speculate when they are released mid-season

I thought our safeties (Duker’s specialty) were actually pretty good this past year. It’s the CBs that were the issue.

that article makes it sound as though we won’t have a safeties coach. the new guy’s title is CB coach and passing game coordinator. So if Bly stays, we;ll have two CB coaches and no safeties coach. :man_shrugging:

They were late. They sucked badly for most of the year IMO.

Iffy was a force of nature. He alone completely changed the complexion of our defense.

Yeah, between Jacobs’s demotion, Walker’s demotion and Joseph’s sideline blowup, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised to see changes at CB and S. On one hand there’s a lack of talent, on the other there’s head-scratching moments.
