Priority #1 for this franchise is getting rid of Patricia, truly one of the worst coaches in NFL history. Priority #2 is getting rid of Quinn.
The problem for us is that Stafford is good enough to keep us in, and even win, games that Patricia would otherwise lose. The best thing that can happen for this franchise, in the long-term, is to start 0-5 and fire Patricia and then re-set. If Swift catches the ball yesterday, and Stafford carries us to 8 wins this year, we might bring Patricia back. And that can’t happen.
I really, really, really was hoping that something had changed this offseason. Maybe Patricia would turn it around, or Undlin’s scheme would bear fruit. Unfortunately, that’s clearly not the case. Time to move on, and the sooner the better.
