Detroit Lions Fire OC Joe Lombardi and OLine Coach Jeremiah Washburn

Lions fire 2nd year OC Joe Lombardi. Lombardi came out of the Sean Payton system in New Orleans but never could move the ball at a consistent rate. The team leads the NFL in turnovers and is dead last in rushing.

The number one factor in this change is that the Lions could not adjust in game to defensive changes. Great examples were the San Diego game and the game vs. Minnesota. The same blitz kept getting home and hitting Staff. It was not a player being physically defeated and just need a chip or double. This was a scheme issue and no answer from the OC or Line coach.

Here is a tribute:

Grandson of Vince Lombardi

Scenes from the Roar Zone loss to the Cardinals

A pathetic performance by the winless Lions highlighted by 6 turnovers.

My son declared to me today that he is no longer a Lions fans. He took all Lions swag out of his room and donated it to the man cave. He said " I cannot be a fan of a team that hurts themselves."
