Why would anyone? The Lions suck but at the end of the day there's only 32 of these jobs in the world. And NFL coaches are known to have egos and think they can overcome any challenge - just look at Marinelli.

If we did bring in Billick i believe we would need to get a top DC. Nolan would be best because they have a relationship already. If not him we need to find someone else who has proven to be a top DC

by reading that its safe to say there will be no billick no schottenhiemer or anyone with past HC experience. another bust on our part but i think this is because Mayhew is a new GM and willl not want someone who wont listen to him. They are looking for a Coordinator who they know will be on the same page as Mayhew. Therefore we can only hope for Rex Ryan or Spagnuolo. I do not want either of the Titans coordinators for the record.

I just want a coach that will be here for more than three years. I don't think that's too much to ask.

It's just frustrating that they aren't going to look at Pioli for the GM spot..

I also like Spagnuolo and Schotty at 1a and 1b. Both would be a good choice but maybe lean towards Spagunolo. Mostly for the fact because I'll question whether or not I am spelling it correctly every time I type it.

As much as a 3-4 switch would be cool, I don't know if we should do it. Let us just get a HC.

i dont feel as if their OC has really done anything special. All he did was plug in a game manager at QB and run the ball and depend on the defense to win games. This in no way fits our personnel where we have a terrible oline and our best player is a WR. Also our defense sucks.

Their DC i wouldn't mind but ultimatly he would be buried on my list under the likes of Spagnoula Ryan and Mcdaniels.

Bringing in Schwartz could give the Lions a chance at landing Haynesworth.

I dont think you hire a coach solely on the possibility of one player following him. I dont know a lot about Schwartz so i would be fine with that pick seeing as the titans D is very good

Josh McDaniels*, Patriots offensive coordinator

McDaniels has been an assistant for eight seasons - all with New England. He began with the organization in 2001 as an assistant in the scouting department. After assisting the defensive coaching staff for three seasons, he became the team's quarterbacks coach in 2004. He served that post until being named the team's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in January of 2006, his current position.

*McDaniels is the only coach who reportedly hasn't been granted permission to speak with the Lions.

I heard the list on Sirius radio today.

Steve Spagnuolo,Jason Garrett,Jerrry Gray,Scwartz,Leslie Frazier. Those are the candidates so far.

No way to Garrett,Gray and I'm iffy on Frazier because he's very young too. We stick with Tampa 2 probably with him though.

Spagnuolo or Schwartz are the best options.

Mike Shanahan should be the guy, he is someone who can build that offense and plus he is someone with experience that could be a leader to the Organization in need of one to move in the right direction.

Plus, the talent on the offense would be perfect for the ZBS and he can build the line and RB position without spending high picks.

I want Shanahan because he's a proven winner, but I don't think he will jive well with the Lions new "organizational plan."

If history is any indication, we'll hire another puppet coach.

I don't think we should hire anyone that doesn't have NFL head coaching experience already. We have a horrible team that isn't going to improve too much in the next year so we need someone who knows what they are doing and can teach them.

Shanahan won't come here. Why would he?

Anyone can come in and coach the team to at least 1 win (well not Rod Macaphony) so we need someone who can make progress. I want a defensive minded coach with HC experience. Let's do it right!
