The Lions announced a series of staff changes on Tuesday following a failure of a season.

There are some notable names in there. Special teams coordinator John Bonamego was a surprise firing after turning around the special teams struggles early in the season, although the Lions’ coverage units struggled the last few weeks. Likewise, Al Golden was a carryover from the Caldwell regime who was expected to be gone sooner or later.
Question of the day: Are you satisfied with the Lions’ coaching changes?
My answer: No.
I don’t need Paul Pasqualoni gone to be content, as I’m fairly certain given Matt Patricia’s secrecy about defensive play calling that Patricia is largely to blame. What I need to see is a commitment to bringing change with regards to defensive playcalling—firing your linebackers or defensive backs coaches likely won’t bring significant change.
Hopefully, the Lions are just waiting out the playoff teams and will make more significant defensive coaching changes then.
