Clueless Coach

This will be short and to the point.  The Detroit Lions should fire head coach Rod Marinelli IMMEDIATELY and the rest of the coaching staff at season's end.  The Lions are 0-11 after blowing a 17-point early lead and losing to the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-20.  After taking a 17-0 lead, Detroit proceeded to give up 21 unanswered points giving the Bucs the halftime lead.  

When FOX Sports sideline reporter Carissa Thompson asked Marinelli why the Lions weren't throwing more balls to top wide receiver Calvin Johnson, she told the viewing audience the coach "didn't really have an answer for me."  Thompson then reported that Marinelli kept saying, "we just have to play better football."  Uh, DUH!!!!  Tell me something I don't already know.  If that's the best Marinelli can come up with as a response to THE question everybody was asking, it's time for him to go. He clearly has no clue.  Cut him loose, NOW!!!!

Oh, Good Evening!
