And by all accounts, his teammates hated the decision. He was, after all, a team captain and vocal leader in the Lions’ locker room.
The timing of the trade and compensation that the Lions received are both telling. On the one hand, it feels like Lions general manager Bob Quinn is tossing his hands in the air. This trade sends the same vibes as the Golden Tate trade did last year.
On the other hand, Quinn could be simply getting anything he can for a guy that, despite being a fan-favorite, clearly isn’t in his plan going forward.
So, today’s question of the day is:
How confident are you in Bob Quinn going forward?
My answer: I’m still confident
I’m trying to take my emotions out of it, and time will only tell in the long run, but something tells me that Bob Quinn didn’t wake up on Monday morning after a second division loss in a row and decide he needed to deal Diggs away.
At the same time, I don’t think we can underestimate the effect this type of move can have on your team and locker room.
I have no idea how trading Diggs plays out, but I’m still confident in the overall plan Bob Quinn is building.
What do you think?
Are you still confident in Bob Quinn?
