Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay appears to have ‘liked’ Matt Patricia’s firing

No words of support for the former regime nor any signs of relief. Well, there was one, 6-foot-4 exception on Saturday afternoon. As pointed out by Chris Burke of The Athletic, Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay ‘liked’ an Instagram post from the NFL officially announcing the firing of...

On Thursday, Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson came into Ford Field and left with 318 yards, four touchdowns, a near-perfect passer rating of 150.4, and a blowout win over the Detroit Lions.

Sheila Ford Hamp provides few answers, little hope in press conference

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Words are just words, but Ford Hamp fell flat in her post-firing press conference. Many Detroit Lions fans spent Saturday celebrating the end of the Matt Patricia era. It was a necessary move for the franchise, and the mark of an ugly three years in this team’s history, even considering this team’s awful track record. But the end of a bad era doesn’t necessarily mean the start of a good one. On Saturday afternoon, following her decisions to let go of both Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn, Lions owner Sheila Ford Hamp had the...

Hope or doom: which one awaits the Lions after Patricia?

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports How bad is the damage done? You are at a crossroad. The timelines splay out in front of you. All roads are obscured. As you take that first step, you could step towards doom or righteousness. You cannot stand still. You could swallow your fears, but what is your mind like as you take the first step, knowing it could annihilate you? We are surrounded by crushing optimism. Everywhere you look, you are told to hustle hard, work hard, be bright, smile. Smarm rules the roost. Don’t you dare show your doubts. You know the sort. For the Detroit...

POLL: Who should be the Lions’ next head coach?

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports Once again, it’s time for some new blood. The deed has been done. After another set of embarrassing losses, the Detroit Lions and owner Sheila Ford Hamp cut ties with general manager Bob Quinn and head coach Matt Patricia. They now sit at 4-7 with no hope for a playoff run, but with interim coach Darrell Bevell now at the helm, maybe they can scrum up some wins and gain some confidence for the young players who might still be around next year. With a clean slate, SFH has some work to do hiring a new front office. The last time they...
