Detroit Lions approval poll: Bob Quinn (November 2019)

Things may look a little different from the last time we checked in.

When we last checked in on the approval ratings of Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn, the franchise was in a completely different state. The team was 2-1-1 at the bye week, coming off a hard, but encouraging loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. There was a feeling the franchise was headed in the right direction, and the play of free agent signings Justin Coleman and Mike Daniels looked promising, as did the midseason addition of J.D. McKissic.

At the time, Quinn was given a 95 percent approval rating with nearly 3,000 votes cast.

Something tells me the results may be a little different now.

Since our last survey, the Lions have lost five of their last six games, traded away a defensive captain, seen a huge collapse on the defensive side of the ball, and seen several of their 2019 additions rapidly decline.

Detroit is not getting any contributions from a guy like Jesse James, while the shine has worn off on Justin Coleman and Rashaan Melvin. Even some of Quinn’s most recent draft class (see: T.J. Hockenson, Will Harris) are failing to meet some expectations. It’s obviously early to condemn a draft class just two months into their NFL careers, but even last year’s class is starting to look shaky. Kerryon Johnson and Da’Shawn Hand can’t stay healthy. Nick Bawden is having an awful “rookie” season, and Tyrell Crosby isn’t looking like the bonafide swing tackle that many were hoping.

There is some good, though. Jeff Driskel was a savvy addition that may pay off as the team’s future backup. Danny Amendola and Trey Flowers look like good offseason signings. Frank Ragnow is developing into a very good center. And hey, that Bo Scarbrough guy looks pretty good.
