A few weeks back, I asked you all whether Matt Patricia was on the hot seat. I said that, barring an unrealistic scenario of losing out the season, he’ll get another year.
Well, I’m here to tell you I was very wrong. The Lions have lost eight of their last nine games, including five straight, with their lone win coming against the 2-10 New York Giants. The nightmare I called impossible has come to life.
Question of the day: If the Lions lose out, should Matt Patricia be fired?
My answer: I really don’t know, man.
On the one hand, Matt Patricia is getting on my nerves. He’s supposed to be the defensive galaxy brain yet the defense is the team’s glaring weakness, and Patricia won’t say who’s in charge of it. If it’s him, he sucks. If it’s Pasqualoni, then Patricia needs to man up and fire his friends because his friends are bad at coaching football.
On the other hand, Patricia has only had one complete offseason to bring this team and roster together, and another offseason could make a big difference. If you fire Patricia now, especially given his atypical defensive roster makeup, you’re facing at least two more full seasons of roster overhaul before you really have a shot to compete. At this point in Matthew Stafford’s career, I don’t know if that’s a risk you take.
It’s a tough call—fortunately, it’s not my call. I don’t know what to do here, how about you try to convince me?
