Do you approve of the job Jim Caldwell is doing as the Lions’ head coach?

With the end of the season on the horizon and Jim Caldwell’s seat hotter than ever, it’s time for December’s check in with the Detroit Lions’ head coach.

When we last checked in with Caldwell and his approval rating, the Lions had jump come off a disappointing loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving, essentially ending their chance at a division title. At that point in the season, Caldwell earned just a 35 percent approval rating.

Here’s a look at Caldwell’s approval rating since he joined the team in 2014:

November 2017: 35% approval
October 2017: 44% approval
September 2017: 63% approval
December 2016: 44% approval
November 2016: 76% approval
October 2016: 57% approval
September 2016: 22% approval
January 2016: 59% approval
December 2015: 12% approval
November 2015: 8% approval
July 2015: 91% approval
January 2015: 89% approval
December 2014: 85% approval
November 2014: 87% approval
October 2014: 94% approval
September 2014: 96% approval
August 2014: 67% approval
June 2014: 77% approval

We all know what has happened since we last convened. Detroit slowly got themselves back into the playoff race with wins over the Buccaneers and Bears, but losses to the Ravens and Bengals permanently sunk their chances at the postseason.

The Lions have now missed the playoff for the second time in four years under Caldwell and many fans are already window shopping their new hopeful coach. But with a win on Sunday, Caldwell will also be the leader of back-to-back winning Lions teams, something no coach in Detroit has done since 1995.

So it’s time to sound off. Do you approve of the job Caldwell is doing as the Lions’ head coach? Vote in the poll below.
