Completely unrelated to the current discussion, but does anyone know if Stafford's next in line as an alternate for the Pro Bowl now that Matt Ryan is out with a shoulder injury?

Bill Ford Jr has slowly been more involved with these decisions. He was the one who came out and said Millen should be fired before his Father did it 3 days later and my belief is that they will be much quicker to pull the trigger on clearing house if there is not a turnaround.

The difference between Millen and now is the Fords have seen first hand the damage that was done by allowing Millen to keep his job for so long. They were legitimately embarrassed with the 0-16 season and I think they are smart enough to learn from their mistakes.

I would be absolutely shocked if they let this front office and coaching staff hold their jobs if there is not a significant turnaround next year. Including the off the field issues as well which is a whole other issue (that they also weren't dealing with when Millen was GM).

I thought he was pretty low on the alternate list. So therefore no i do not think he is next in line

Russell Wilson got it.


Plus, I found this on another website. Some scout chatter about the Lions who are coaching at the Senior Bowl.


Quote:
By Charlie Campbell - @draftcampbell

With all the general managers, coaches and scouts in attendance at the Senior Bowl, there is a lot of chatter going around. Here are some of the highlights from the rumor mill on the first day.

The Detroit Lions had a disappointing year that started with a rough offseason that featured some player arrests. A lot of criticism for a lack of discipline on and off the field has been dished out at the Lions' players, coaching staff and front office. After speaking with sources, they reveal that the Lions locker room did a good job of staying united overall. Sources said that the players generally got along well and didn't turn on each other.

They said the only (exceptions) were wide receiver Titus Young and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Sources said Young has to get his head on straight before he gets bounced out of the league. Suh is said to be a diva, jerk and a bad teammate who is disliked. The Lions will be under the gun to turn things around in 2013 with a lot of people's jobs on the line. There will probably less forgiving attitudes towards Suh and Young in the months to come.

We can only hope you are right but I'll reserve my judgement on Ford for the future. He's been a bad owner for a long, long time predating even Millen???

Has anyone seen Titus' Twitter feeds from yesterday? What an ass-clown. He's gone.

Can we just have Suh stomp on him? Why can't that be our thing?
