Former 97.1 The Ticket personality Terry Foster calls out Lions HC Matt Patricia

When the Detroit Lions hired Matt Patricia away from the New England Patriots, many believed that it was just a matter of time before the Lions had one of the best defenses in the National Football League.

Fast-forward to Year 3 of Patricia’s tenure as Lions’ head coach and the Lions have one of the worst (maybe THE worst) defense in the entire league.

After leading the Lions to embarrassing losses in the first two weeks of the 2020 season, Patricia has been taking heat from the fans and the media alike.

On Wednesday, former 97.1 The Ticket personality Terry Foster published an article in which he calls out Patricia, saying his defense is the opposite of what former Lions defensive coordinator John Teerlinck would preach to his defense.

Get to the quarterback!

From Terry Foster:

It is the exact opposite of current head coach Matt Patricia, whose bend but don’t break passive defensive schemes are getting eaten alive by opposing quarterbacks. Even bad quarterbacks look good against the Lions who are marred in an 11 game losing streak and crippling 0-2 start to 2020.

The defensive guru from New England has been a disaster in Detroit, mostly because his defense looks lethargic and players sometimes look less than enthused to run his scheme. Now mental mistakes are more prevalent, especially late in games.

Foster added that there is no hope for this Lions’ team if they continue to play this style of defense.

This problem began as soon as Patricia stepped foot in town and it appears as if he and his staff have not learned how to fix this. There is no hope for this team playing this type defense. Players grow weary and the coaches become frustrated with the lack of production.

The Lions do not believe in throwing many blitz packages. Why not? What have you got to lose? This way is not working.

Nation, do you believe that Patricia will eventually figure out how to put a formidable defense on the field or is it too late?
