It’s time for the Detroit Lions to overhaul their roster for next season completely. No one on the roster should really be safe. Quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Kenny Golladay can find another team in the league to contribute to. If you’re the new head coach or general manager coming into Detroit, you’d want to be given a fresh start to mold the team as you see fit.
It might be difficult for Lions fans to go through another rebuild, but that’s probably what it’s going to take to turn the franchise around. The key is that ownership has to get it right in the hiring process, and they haven’t been able to do that for decades. Let’s not forget that this Lions franchise fired Jim Caldwell, who had the highest regular-season winning percentage (.563) of any full-time Lions coach in the Super Bowl era. Caldwell went 36-28 in his tenure as the Lions head coach, and he was jettisoned for Matt Patricia, who went 13-29-1 as their head coach. Lions’ fans deserve better, and it’s up to the ownership group to reward their loyalty by finally making the right hires to lead the franchise.
