    It's a performance based business. Indeed an 0-16 team does deserve to be blown up. To argue that the head coach or the D-coordinator deserve to be retained is ludicrous.

    I dont know if Marinelli and staff are good coaches or not but they have the worst roster in the NFL and you cant take chicken bleep and make chicken salad. This season should be blamed on Mr. Ford and Matt Millen not Rod Marinelli and son-in-law.

    A good coach would have won two or three games at least, and avoided being historically awful.

    I don't disagree that Ford and Millen deserve most of the credit though.

    The Lions need to de-Marinelli themselves for that to have a chance of happening in Detroit though.

    I think "de-Millen" is the better term, though Marinelli did not help it much when he came in.

    (Oh, and perhaps draft something besides a WR in the 1st round too)

    'Cause the media said he would and he wants to prove them wrong

    Seriously, he also said he would not trade for Roy Williams, yet a couple of weeks later - Voila! he traded for Roy Williams.

    Who knows what will happen, but I must admit I enjoyed watching that beatdown yesterday

    I thought the Bengals of the 90's were awful. They have nothing on the Lions of this decade.

    The Bengals went 52-108 in the 90's. This decade, the Lions are 40-104. Ouch.

    Wow. I can't even fathom that.

    Fortunately, some of the people who want to make Bungles jokes will have a different target for a while.

    So the Lions just need to go 12-4 next year to tie the Bengals. Piece of cake.

    Jim Rome must have been happy, too. He always roots for a team to do this.

    After that 2nd long TD in the Ravens game, I said to myself that he was so fired. I guess Jerry likes a guy who does his bidding.

    Just like Al is the puppet master in Oakland. He changes puppets but nothing changes on game day. Shmucks in, Shmucks out.
