The Detroit Lions decided to move on from offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter on Tuesday, and despite the holiday, the PODcast crew was assembled to address the important news.

Chris, Jeremy and Hamza recorded a mini-PODcast on Tuesday night, addressing Jim Bob Cooter’s legacy, what went wrong in 2018, and discussing our favorite potential replacements for Cooter. We dive into the likelihood of each candidate being available, their potential chemistry with head coach Matt Patricia and the pros and cons of each coach.


  • Was Jim Bob Cooter a bad offensive coordinator or just a bad fit with Matt Patricia
  • The crew discusses how some of Cooter’s old habits and failure to grow as an offensive coordinator doomed him.
  • The crew runs through some of the top replacement candidates and gives their thoughts on each.
  • Candidates include: Shane Waldron, Zac Taylor, Steve Sarkisian, George Godsey, Adam Gase, Nathaniel Hackett, Freddie Kitchens, Charlie Weis and more!
  • The PODcast crew tries to rationalize an internal hire like George Godsey, as uninspiring as it may be.
