    I think he's a good coach. I think he'll be somebody's head coach next year.

    MOOCH IS NOT A GOOD COACH.
    He is a media creation, he is all media hype.

    #1 his offensive is the most conservative in the NFL, yes, I know who your coach is, and I say Mooch is double that

    #2 He is a wuss

    #3 He is stubborn

    #4 He never plays his best players in favor of "his" guys, who always suck

    #5 He is a wuss

    #6 He is a wuss

    #7 He runs the same 20 plays all game long.

    #8 even with the defense 8 in the box, he still calls 5 yard curl routes.

    #9 He is such a freaking wuss

    #10 He for some reason hates the following players

    Kevin Jones
    Roy Williams
    Charles Rogers
    Mike Williams
    Scotty Vines the #1 WR on the team that the ***** cut durring the season
    Corey Schelsinger
    Casey Fitsimmons
    Joey Harrington (hates him the most)
    Torrance Holt
    Donte Curry
    Keith Smith
    Stanley Wilson


    He Loves

    Shawn Bryson
    Artose Pinner
    Paul Smith
    Glenn Martinez
    Brock Marion
    Bracey Walker
    RW McQuarters
    Jeff Garcia
    James Davis
    (all of these guys aren't any good, I do respect Garcia's efforts though)
    All these guys get more playing time because they are "Moochies"

    He is the single worst coach I have ever seen for the Lions
    And no Lions coach has ever gone on to another NFL headcoaching job after leaving this team.

    Mooch is so bad I wish Fontz, Ross, or Morningwiegh were still here.

    Im going to have to go with IHATEGEEKS on this one. As far as the detroits playcalling goes, he has the talent and speed at the wideout positions to go deep and strech the field and instead constantly throws slants. Streching the field should be a strength for his team, but instead he enables it to be. I have been relocated to Mich. so now I get to watch the lions. Joey H. biggest problem and the lions biggest problem is they can't sustain long drives on offense, but in Steve's system when your just throwing 5 yard slant passes, you have to be able to sustain a long and multiple play drive to score. Joey H. has had success throwing verticaly. Instead of coaching to his teams strengths he coaches to their weaknesses. I would hate to see steve coach this team next year. btw Scotty Vines is a gamer. I find it fitting that a guy that goes undrafted and cut outperforms 3 1st round picks. Im not knocking your receivers, I still think R. Williams is going to be a great player in this league. I think it has to do more with the system their playing in right now

    Stick by it all you want.

    It is a fact , No Lions Head Coach has ever went on to a headcoach job in the NFL after leaving this team.
    Mooch would be the first, and the least deserving out of a long list.

    He gets alot of love from the national media and jockswinging from ESPN. Because he really is a nice guy.

    And that is one of his biggest flaws.

    It was just Hitlers Opinion that the Jews should be removed from society.
    When we stop holding people accoutable then we enable it the things they say.
    I'm challenging your opinion for the future of the Jewish people.

    You're being somewhat silly now so I'll bow out. It was my opinion. Why you bring up Hitler and the Jews only you know....

    At this time I am forced by Internet regulation number 41123, Section C, Paragraph 7 to inform you that with this post you have violated Godwin's Law. By generally accepted Usenet tradition (Applicable to all Internet Discussion per Amendment 24 of the Internet Discussion Charter) I must now declare that you have lost whatever argument or debate you were taking part in. It is over. You lose. You are wrong. The end.

    Should you wish to file a protest over this ruling (Presumably using Guy's Corollary to Godwin's Law) then a hearing can be scheduled in the "No Football Talk Allowed" forum at your earliest convienience.

    Thank You
    Sincerely

    The Moderators Council On Internet Hitler Reference and Nazi Comparisons.

    Not that obscure, it's in my top 10, and my list is ironclad.

    Capers should be fired now, so they can start the evaluation for next year. Put an assitant in as interim, and play out the season letting everyone get some playing time including Ragone. No harm in letting more play so we can see what's there.

    I can't believe the ax fell in mid season for Mariucci and some asst. coaches... Can Capers and company be far behind???

    I am still trying to digest our loss Sunday to the Rams. More to come on that later...
