Re: The Great Thanksgiving Officiating Fiasco
Going back to 2002-2003 I viewed Texan with Lion franchise an equal comparable. Carr & Harrington, both busts, but Detroit went back to back busts instead selecting Charles Rogers with the 2nd overall pick leaving Andre Johnson to Texans #3 overall.
Then both coaching & GM changes. Schwartz a defensive coach, Gary the offensive QB guru. McNair has been vindicated with his patience, don't know if Fords will do the same? This call as bad as it was on the field was intensified off by the man who was supposed to be in charge, simply could not control his emotions, or his players on the field emotions, hence his team lost control, ultimately the game, probably the war as franchises once again diverge in opposite directions.
2012 Draft was Mercilus
