    LIONS OFFSEASON TO DO LIST

    Improvements on Defence: pass rush, limit giving up big plays (80 yard pass plays, etc.), edge run stopping, more bump/press coverage (stop giving a freaking 10 yard cushion at the line), get off the field on 3rd and long, tackle

    Improvements on Offence: throw down the field - stretch the D, better play calling, better protection, better run blocking, catch the ball, more individual accountability, quicker decisions, better routes, more seperation, break tackles

    Other Improvements: better prepared, better coached, better luck

    Keep: Harrington as your #1, Olsen calling plays

    Fire: Jauron and Tollner

    Upgrade: LG, DE, FS, CB, Special Teams Play

    Promote: Lehman to starter over Davis

    Bring Back: Backus

    Bring In: A proven, veteran receiver to mentor the young, spoiled WR's (Kevin Johnson filled this role well before he seriously injured his knee). A proven, veteran QB to HELP Joey, not whine, take shots at the organization and throw moon balls.

    Say Bye Bye to: Drummond, R.W. McQuarters, Garcia

    Hire: a hard nosed, no holds barred, tough as nails coach who will whip these pretty boys into shape and bring back the BLACK to the Black and Blue Division.

    Give one last chance to: Harrington, Millen, K. Jones, the "big three" receivers

    Also, I was unfamiliar with calling Mike Williams "BMW". (Big Mike Williams?) So I didn't catch the reference.

    I hear Mike Singletary is interviewing for the Lion job. He's been an asisstant at SF 49ers and Ravens.

    I'd take Mike for discipline if nothing else.

    If only we could dump Matt...:ohwell:

    He's gonna have to blow Millens socks off to unseat DJ.

    I can't see DJ being back next year. Millen CANNOT afford to screw this hiring up. He needs a proven hard nosed coach.

    Yup. IMO, Millen can't afford to take a chance on an unproven head coach. Mike has only been a positions coach for 2 years. Not saying he won't make a good head coach someday, maybe even next season, but given Millen's track record of hiring coaches I think its too big a risk at this point.

    we don't need another expirement.

    We need a high profile coach.

    I say pay JJ anything he wants to return to coaching so we can build this team the RIGHT way for a change.

    Those 3 TDs we put up on the Steelers look pretty strong right now. But then the Steelers didn't take out our starting QB with a knee hit. Needless to say the Steelers adjust at half time very well.
