Detroit Lions mailbag: When will the team make a decision on Matt Patricia?

Our mailbag answers all your questions about Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

With the bye week upon us, it’s time we reset, look inward, and see what the heck is next for this Detroit Lions team. So with no game to preview this week on our First Byte podcast, we turned to you, the fans, to chat about topics that are important to you.

Unsurprisingly, a lot of your question in this week’s mailbag had to do with the fate of head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn. So the first half of this week’s podcast is devoted all to that. When will we see a decision on those two made? What do we make of Patricia’s comments about Jim Caldwell’s Lions needing “a lot of work?” If the Lions make the decision to move on, what sort of coach should they be looking for to replace him?

For the second half of the podcast, we move from coaching to the 2020 team. Is there any chance the loose schedule ahead leads to a turnaround? Plus, we ranking the biggest issues on defense, give our take on Matthew Stafford’s inconsistent play and talk trade deadline.
