Story here

Despite promises by Millen that Mornhinweg was not to be fired (not that I did not think he should be), this months-old "rumor" about Mariucci taking over keeps gaining more and more credibility. As a Lions fan, I would love to see Mariucci take over and give it a try, but I have to honestly ask, is it going to do any good?

Damn, and once upon a time, I thought Wayne Fontes was a bad coach. 5-27 over two years? Damn...

Actually, yes. Harrington is the first franchise player they've had since Barry, and he has a world of potential at this point. All he needs is a consistent reciever. Popular thought right now is that the Lions are going to take Charles Rogers with the second pick, and he definitely has Moss-like potential, hopefully without all the baggage. The defense only really needs a better secondary and another good linebacker to go with Claiborne. The Lions will be hurt by the cap this year, but are going to have a bunch of cap room in 2004. Realistically, with Mariucci as coach, the Lions could easily be a playoff team within 2-3 years. If nothing else, Ford Field hosts the Super Bowl in 2006, so one way or the other, the Lions will be involved in a Super Bowl soon.

I'm a Lions fan too. I think he could do a hell of a lot if it happens. All the signs say that it is for sure, but who knows. It's almost a little too obvious.

I tried to stay behind Morty, even after the coin-toss thing. But when he coached that senior bowl game, I knew that he was not the one. He had some of the best players in the country and couldn't even score. He had to go.

In one article, I read somewhere that one reason why Millen hired Morty was because he was the closest thing to Mooch. Millen even called him when Mooch was fired for some crazy reason (what philosophical differences?). Plus it's his home state, he still has friends & family there.

Personally, I can't wait to hear that a deal has been made. I don't know how much of a defensive genius he is but hopefully if Rogers is picked first, he'll have the sense to go defensive after that. This may be even better than Parcell going to Dallas.

Isn't it sad that in the 1990's, the club had Herman Moore, Ray Crockett and Barry Sanders, but not a credible quarterback.

Now Harrington is their franchise guy, and doen't have a supporting cast as above.

The Bengals and Cardinals always get called for being loser organizations.....what about Detroit? One playoff win since 1957, though at least they have several appearances.

Back then, didn't they crow about stealing Dan Marino's heir apparent, Scott Mitchell, from the Dolphins? I'm not even going to say anything about them drafting Andre Ware. Perhaps they could get Corey Dillon from the Bengals to replace Stewart at running back - on second thought, I'll keep quiet, because I'd rather Green Bay continue to win the division.

MItchell was a NIGHTMARE! And Batch has promise, but he was made of glass...
A real problem lies with the owner, Ford, who knows NOTHING about running a good team, but is unwilling to delegate all authority to the President (and Millen is no real winner right now either), and that is going to lead to problems no matter how you look at it.
Stewart is not the best choice for running back, but he is not terrible. I would rather see them invest some time into rebuilding that secondary befor they replace him
But I would not complain if they GOT Dillon, don't get me wrong!

Why would Dillon go from the Bengals to the Lions? It's like picking a hanging over the chair.

Dillon is only 2 years into a new 5 year contract so he's not going anywhere. Takeo Spikes and Lorenzo Neal may be different stories. Cincinnati and Detroit are 2 identically bad teams...both w/ 5-27 records over the past 2 years.

It has to get better, doesn't it Maybe Mooch can bring the Lions together. I sure hope Lewis can do something with the Bengals or else I'm gonna be getting into the Cincinnati Swarm! (new arena2 football team).

Can Steve Mariucci polish this turd of a football team?

I believe he can. Next season should be very interesting.

Dear God the Chiefs are approaching Oakland Raiders 2006 level bad offense. And the D isn't doing much better, especially against the run (I do like the rookie corners). At least they have a great punter, which is vital for this team.
