Default Linehan named Offensive Coordinator?

Don't really have a link, but I've seen it on several different websites that have said they saw it on ESPN. I do like the hire though, as I think Linehan is a very good OC.

Interesting. I like that the Lions aren't ******* around with their coaching staff like they did under Marinelli.

At least if Schwartz blows as HC and get fired in the first month, there will be several legit candidates to take over unlike last season, haha.

I hope thats true, but then again, will Daunte Culpepper really be around that long? He's a stopgap even if Linehan is the OC

I don't think Linehan's signing does much to influence our #1 pick. Mayhew and Schwartz are still the only ones making that determination.

What's Linehan's preference with offense? Power running, passing, good mix of both? Not overly familiar with him. Does he have any specific areas of offensive expertise?

Culpepper has proven he is not a starter in the NFL anymore, regardless of the coach.

That's part of it. But he wasn't a good Head Coach.

He's been very good as an OC with STL and MIA, so I don't have concerns about him in this role.

Really? Culpepper with an entire off season to work chemistry with Calvin Johnson will be a lot better than a Culpepper signed off the street in a season already begun, thrown into a starting position on a team that ended up going 0-16....

Now throw in that our new OC has worked wonders with Culpepper in the past, I don't see any other plausible option at QB to be better at this point. He won't be the Culpepper we saw with Moss but I think he can be good enough for 1 or 2 years while either Stafford/Sanchez or Bradford/McCoy patiently prepare to become the starter.

If Schwartz can bring Haynesworth to Detroit, our future will suddenly be looking bright.

i think he's crazy for passing up the weather in san francisco, but maybe he thinks he'll have more flexibility or job stability with the offense here. or he just loves stafford that much. regardless he's going to have to limit the playbook if stafford plays.

as for his style. well think back to when culpepper and moss in the vikings. when pep had 4,717 yards passing and 39 tds in linehan's last year there.

He was the offensive coordinator in Minnesota for awhile... he is a very good coordinator and does a great job of mixing the run and pass. Not afraid to take shots down the field.

This was posted at the bottom of Wikipedia!! Hilarious!!


In the 2009-2010 season, Linehan lead the Lions' high-powered offense to a perfect regular season record at 16-0. Rookie Quarterback Matt Stafford passed for 6,000 yards and 60. WR Calvin Johnson caught 250 passes for 2,712 yards and 31 TDs. RB Kevin Smith rushed for an NFL record 3,423 yards.

The Lions defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 44, 97-0.

I like this hire. Linehan is a good offensive coordinator, who just failed as a head coach.
