The last two approval polls we took for Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan did not go well for him. Last November, he received a 20 percent approval rating, and this was actually an improvement from last October, when he got an 18 percent approval rating.
A big part of the Lions' struggles on offense last season were injuries. The Lions didn't have a backup plan for when Jahvid Best wasn't cleared to return, and it didn't help when Nate Burleson and Ryan Broyles went down with season-ending injuries. It also didn't help that Titus Young's issues resulted in him being taken out of the equation on offense.
This offseason has been a very interesting one for the Lions' offense. They lost Jeff Backus to retirement, and they also will have to replace Stephen Peterman and Gosder Cherilus on the offensive line. The Lions went out and added Reggie Bush, Larry Warford, Corey Fuller, Theo Riddick, Michael Williams and Joseph Fauria, giving Linehan some additional talent to work with in 2013.
We'll have to wait and see how this year's edition of the Lions' offense performs, but do you approve of what Linehan has done so far as their offensive coordinator? Vote in the poll below and leave your thoughts in the comments.
