Peter King: Detroit Lions will not fire Matt Patricia as soon as we would like

For the second consecutive week to start the 2020 season, the Detroit Lions are a part of the laughing stock of the NFL. In fact, the Lions have now led by double-digits in four-straight games and have somehow figured out a way to lose each and every one of those games. That, my friends, had never happened in the history of the National Football League!

Since taking over as head coach of the Lions, Matt Patricia has led his team to an embarrassing 9-26-1 record and most fans in Detroit are calling for his job.

But, according to Peter King, he doubts the Lions will fire Patricia, even if he leads the team to an 0-4 record going into the bye week. That being said, King did add that Patricia does not have much time left to save his job.

From Peter King’s Football Morning in America:

It’s Sept. 21, and Matt Patricia looks done already. The Lions have lost 11 in a row, and they’re the worst finishers since 2019 Edwin Diaz. In Week 1, they blew a 17-point fourth-quarter lead and lost to the Mitchell Trubisky Bears. In Week 2, they blew an early 14-3 lead in Green Bay and lost by 21. Predictably, all the Lions stuck by their coach in the aftermath, but what are they going to say? The most troublesome thing about the Lions is that Patricia was considered a brilliant defensive mind and tactician in New England, and he just can’t get the defense right in Detroit.

The next two weeks likely won’t help. Detroit is at the 2-0 Cardinals, with the 1-0 Saints (playing tonight) coming to Detroit in Week 4. Then Detroit has its bye. There’s no way the franchise would fire him at 0-4 this year and 9-26-1 in his tenure, is there? Doubtful, but clearly, Patricia doesn’t have a lot of time to save his job, not when the Cleveland Browns have five more wins than Patricia since opening day 2018.

Nation, when do you think is the soonest the Lions will fire Matt Patricia?

Let us know what you think!
