The Detroit Lions are broken.
On January 8, 2016, the Lions officially hired Bob Quinn to become their next general manager. Since taking over as GM, Quinn has failed to build a roster capable of contending for the playoffs on a regular basis and it is time to make a switch.
I have been preaching for the past three seasons that Quinn is not capable of building a championship and that getting rid of him as soon as possible would be ideal.
Unfortunately, the Lions’ ownership has continued to be loyal to a fault and blinded by the “Patriot Way” and unless they clean house, the franchise will continue to further down the drain.
But “Locked on Lions” host Matt Dery has a bold, yet perfect solution to fix the Lions.
That solution, which Dery has coined as “HLN” is to fire Bob Quinn and hire Louis Riddick to take over.
“What HLN is (is) Hire Louis Now. Louis is Louis Riddick. It is time for the Detroit Lions to get rid of Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia. Those two should be fired on Thursday night, win or lose. Five years of Bob Quinn is not working. Three years of Matt Patricia is certainly not working. It’s a debacle.”
“It’s time to hire Louis now,” Dery explained further. “It’s time to bring Louis Riddick to the fold. He’s a former player and defensive back out of Pittsburgh. Played in the NFL with numerous teams, including the Cleveland Browns, and he is a sharp, sharp man. And, he’s ready to take over an NFL team.”
Nation, do you agree with Matt Dery that Louis Riddick is the answer to the Lions’ problems?
