Matt Patricia shows true colors following Darrell Bevell’s first win as Lions’ HC

On Sunday, Darrell Bevell got his first chance to take the field as head coach (technically, interim head coach) of an NFL team when he led the Detroit Lions into Soldier field to take on the Chicago Bears.

When all was said and done, Bevell had also won his first game as an NFL head coach as the Lions stormed back to beat the Bears 34-30 to move to 5-7 on the season.

As soon as it was obvious that the game was in hand, you could see the joy in Bevell’s eyes but the excitement of his players explained just how much they wanted to win for their new coach.

You can bet that Bevell’s phone was blowing up after the win with congratulatory texts and voicemails but not a single one, according to Bevell was from former Lions’ head coach, Matt Patricia.

On victory Monday, Bevell met with the media, and when asked if Patricia sent a congratulatory text, his answer was straight-forward.

“I did not,” Bevell responded.

Now, to give Patricia a bit of a break, he was just fired a little over a week ago, which has to be a very difficult situation to deal with.

That being said, the call should have been made and it shows poor form by Patricia.

  1. I don’t blame Patricia completely, it’s been a extremely long road of indecision.hindsight is 20/20,let’s move on and by all means do our homework.

  2. Grammar police are responding with lights and siren to the error in your paragraph above: “… when asked if Patricia sent a congratulatory text, his answer was straight-forward.
    “I did not,” Bevell responded.”

    Instead of “when asked if Patricia sent”, it should have read “when asked if he (Bevell) received”.

    Clearly, written by a WMU grad.

  3. Good job Lions. That win kind of fell right into your lap, although there were some bright spots of game play as well. Stanford didn’t have to peel himself off the grass after EVERY play this week.

  4. You get what you pay for when you have a COACH that’s WINNING and FIRE him for a OACH that can’t get out of his own way who try’s to blame a another COACH for his Demise just be a MAN and say that you wasn’t ready for the bright light because you SUCKED PLAN AND SAMPLE

  5. Hey! Let’s cut Patricia some slack. He was probably busy jotting down notes for his future memoirs with the pencil that has been stuck above his ear for the last three years! Right on! Oops….write on Patricia!

  6. Hey, I didn’t read all these responses, but earlier in the week someone said that Patricia, was constantly talking down to the players…Look, it’s all a moot point now, but if it’s true, it might explain a lot! Does anyone know anything about that?
    And congratulations to Coach B on his victory…and to Stafford for an outstanding game.

  7. The Lydowns won but it was a sloppy lucky mess, lets be real kids.
    Matt “Stiff”ord puts up numbers, but is not a winning QB by any stretch of imagination, 11 yrs of losing.
    Trade him while he still has some value.
    Let Patrica ride off into the sunset as the Fords and Detroit Lions destroy another coach, they have been successfully doing that for 50 plus years.
    Everyone just needs to grow up, shut up and move on and stop letting the Fake news & Sports media hacks goat everyone into all this petty nonsense!

  8. For Matt to have worked with this men for years and not congratulate him is why the players never played for him.Defense couldn’t stop my cat but Sunday they made big plays when needed.Goodbye GM and take your coach with you.

  9. Y’all really putting it all on Patricia ? Detroit hasn’t had players that can win since the days of Barry Sanders ! The player just want the paychecks and don’t give a damn if they win ! I’d rather coach the Jets they suck but give their shitty coach all their effort. Patricia will be coaching again just. Not head coach
