For the Detroit Lions and their fans, the 2018 NFL season has long been over. Sure, we will all be watching the conference championship games this weekend and of course, the Super Bowl in a couple of weeks, but what about next season? Do the Lions have a chance to turn things around and make a run at all the marbles one year from now?
Well, according to the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, it could be another tough go in 2019.
On Tuesday, they released the odds for Super Bowl LIV and the Lions currently sit at 100-1, which is tied for the second worst odds in the league. In fact, only the team with worse odds is the Miami Dolphins who are 300-1 to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in 2020.

What do you think, Nation? Do the Lions have a chance to win it all next season or will there be more suffering in the Motor City?
Detroit Lions’ Fans: Chill out, the best OC candidate is still available
Within hours (maybe even sooner) of the news Cooter was not coming back, the speculation began as to who would be the best choice to replace him. There were reports Adam Gase was going to be fired by the Miami Dolphins (which he eventually was) and that he would be a top target for the Lions. Well, that may or may not have been the case, but Gase decided to take the head coaching job with the New York Jets.
Other possible candidates included Kliff Kingsbury (HC Arizona), Freddie Kitchens (HC Cleveland), Todd Monken (OC Cleveland), Nathanial Hackett (OC Green Bay), and Steve Sarkisian (OC Alabama).
As the announcements came that those coaches had taken other jobs, coupled with the Lions being silent about the matter, something predictable happened.
Many Lions’ fans began to panic.
Those fans started to post messages on social media saying the best candidates were just passing the Lions by and that Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn was going to have to settle for the last pick, which, of course, would end up being a failure.
Well, I have something to say about that…
CHILL OUT! THE BEST OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR CANDIDATE IS STILL AVAILABLE!!!
