When the Detroit Lions announced they had hired Brad Holmes as their next general manager, I personally was thrilled but there were plenty who were either on the fence or did not like the hire at all.
According to Jeff Risdon of Lions Wire, only 31.32% of Lions fans “loved” the Holmes hire when it was announced, while 5.3% of fans said they “hated” the hire.
Fast forward to the present and despite the Lions finishing with a 3-13-1 record, the majority of fans are now on board with the hire.
In a recent poll conducted by Lions Wire (the poll is still going), 70.67% of voters now believe the Holmes hire was a “great” move and they “love it,” while 0% are “Not happy with Holmes.”
Nation, where do you stand on this?
(Note: My vote obviously went to “Love it, great hire!” since that is what I have believed from Day 1.
