Lions approval ratings: Scott Linehan (November 2012)

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE

Over the weekend, our November approval ratings series began with a poll on Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz. As of the time of this post, 1,450 votes have been cast, and Schwartz's approval rating sits at 31 percent. 52 percent of the voters don't approve of the job Schwartz is doing, which is up from 43 percent in October.

Considering the Lions are currently 4-7, this is no surprise. I expected the numbers to trend in a more negative direction given how the season has gone, but only now is there data to back up the notion that a lot of fans are losing faith in Schwartz's ability to lead the Lions.

Now it's time to move on to other coaches, starting first with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. He really took a lot of heat during the Lions' 1-3 start, and his October approval rating was an awful 18 percent. 67 percent of the voters didn't approve of the job he was doing, so I'll be interested to see how the numbers end up this time around with the Lions' struggles continuing.
