It has been quite a while since we’ve checked in with the general public when it comes to their opinion of Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn.

For most of Quinn’s four-year career in Detroit, he’s had a relatively positive approval rating, hovering between 70-90 percent. Obviously, there was a bit of a downturn towards the end of Detroit’s disappointing 6-10 season in 2018.

But that’s nothing like what we’re seeing right now. We last checked in with our Quinn approval rating back in late November, and the Lions general manager polled in at a career-worst 28 percent approval rating. Here’s a look at his ratings throughout the years:

November 2019: 28 percent approval
October 2019: 95 percent approval
May 2019: 88 percent approval
April 2019: 90 percent approval
March 2019: 76 percent approval
December 2018: 45 percent approval
November 2018: 41 percent approval
October 2018: 70 percent approval
September 2018: 26 percent approval
May 2018: 89 percent approval
March 2018: 83 percent approval
February 2018: 92 percent approval
November 2017: 78 percent approval
October 2017: 82 percent approval
August 2017: 95 percent approval
June 2017: 93 percent approval
April 2017: 97 percent approval
February 2017: 93 percent approval
December 2016: 96 percent approval
August 2016: 70 percent approval
June 2016: 86 percent approval
April 2016: 74 percent approval
February 2016: 72 percent approval

What better time to check back in than just a few hours before the 2020 NFL Draft?

Since we’ve last checked in, Quinn has gone through free agency. He’s made some tough decisions, like trading Darius Slay and releasing Devon Kennard and Damon Harrison Sr. But he’s also made some aggressive moves, including throwing a lot of money at offensive lineman Halapoulivaati Vaitai and Jamie Collins Sr. You certainly can’t criticize Quinn for resting on his laurels this offseason, but whether he’s created a net positive roster in free agency remains up for debate.

So let’s see how many Lions fans approve of Bob Quinn as the team’s general manager, and we’ll check back in a month to see if the draft changed any opinions.


Do you approve of the job Bob Quinn is doing as Detroit Lions general manager?
