Lions approval ratings: Scott Linehan (October 2013)

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE

When we last checked in on Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan's approval rating, fans were not too pleased with him. Back in September, before the start of the 2013 season, Linehan received a 23 percent approval rating.

A few months earlier, in June, Linehan had a 43 percent approval rating. Given the struggles the Lions' first-team offense had in the preseason, I suppose it's no surprise that his rating dropped so much from June to September.

Now, with the Lions off to a 3-1 start, will Linehan's approval rating jump back up and potentially eclipse his number from June? It'll be interesting to see the results of this month's poll, as there's a lot to like so far about the offense. Then again, it could be argued that the offense's performance in the second half in Week 2 is the reason the Lions aren't undefeated right now.

In any case, vote now and leave your thoughts in the comments.
