Matt Patricia defends his 4th quarter coaching by talking about Super Bowl XLIX

What happened in 2017 doesn't carry much weight right now.

The Detroit Lions had everything going right for them in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears at Ford Field.

Then the 4th quarter started.

The Lions watched their division rivals rattle off 21 straight points to complete a comeback victory by a 27-23 final score. With the loss, Matt Patricia has fallen to 0-3 in the first game of the season as a head coach.

He took to the podium to answer questions from the media following the disappointing setback, but apparently doesn’t feel like he’s doing anything wrong in the 4th quarter of games.

“Yeah, I don’t think so,” Patricia responded when asked if he was doing something wrong in the 4th. “I think I got probably one of the biggest plays in the fourth quarter in the history of the NFL where I did a pretty good job, so I don’t think it’s that.”

“We gotta do a better job – I mean we have a team right now that’s different from the previous two years; this team is different, we have different players and they have different mindsets.”

“I’m not looking back, I’m looking forward, and we’re trying to make sure that this team we’re building on understands these situations and we have to come through better than we did before.

Of course, he’s referring to his tenure as Defensive Coordinator with the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX, during which cornerback Malcolm Butler intercepted a pass from Russell Wilson in the waning seconds of the game to clinch the championship.

However, something that happened in 2013 likely won’t be much consolation for fans who are fuming after yet another Lions disappointment.

Let us know what you think!
