I think he is still in contact with CLE? He would be the perfect fit for him and Flacco plus he will be on a contender. Plus he will never be a HC again so he can be here for a long time

I think Caldwell is a decent head coach, but I was never impressed with him as a coordinator. I think he needs a good OC and DC because he's never seemed like an Xs and Os coach, just one that was a strong motivator and made wise decisions.

wasn't he just a complete puppet when he was HC at Indy?

People are going to **** on the Jim Caldwell hire because he doesn't make a lot of faces on the sidelines. Just think about that for a minute before you ever take what anyone says on the internet seriously.

Caldwell's scheme was Cameron's scheme. He just called the plays a bit differently.

It's gonna take about 2 games before Lions fans break out the pitchforks and get worked up into a rage at how he has absolutely zero personality. He makes Lovie Smith look as animated as Jim Harbaugh. He's that guy who ALWAYS gets left hanging on high fives because people legitimately don't realize that he's there.

The stronger personalities on the roster are going to walk all over him.

I've always wondered what he's really done to make him a candidate, anyway. He was one of Manning's offensive assistants in Indy for a long time and got lucky with Joe Flacco getting hot, right?

yeah I know different formations and a different twist. I wonder how much say Harbaugh has in the offense.

The many faces of Jim Caldwell is just a funny side story.

Him being awful is the primary reason why everyone is criticizing this hire.

Oh....right, the fact that he's "awful". Biting analysis.

But I'm sure the players won't respect him and will run all over him because he doesn't make enough angry faces. Cause that's how the real world works.

Analysis: He didn't do much at Wake Forrest, and he was Peyton Manning's puppet in Indy.

What has he done? Peyton ran the offense in Indy. He had no control over the defense. He's shown he's incompetent without Peyton. He had full control of the Ravens offense this year and it was a disaster. The Ravens SB run was more about Flacco getting hot and running no huddle than it was Caldwell.

So what exactly makes this a good hire? He doesn't have the command to control a locker room full of bad apples. So how is this exactly going to work?

Your argument that he'll be a good hire is just as outlandish if not worse than my argument that he's a poor hire.

At least I can point out reasons why he's awful. What on earth can you say to justify him as a good coach though? I'd love to hear it.

I'm not arguing that he's a good hire. He's probably not because the Lions are stupid and destined to always fail. It's really smart money to always bet against the Lions. Of that I am certain.

I'm arguing that a bunch of people are going to have really strong opinions because of #HOTINTERNETSPORTSTAKES when in reality they don't know what the **** they are talking about and almost never do.

Yes, it was like the movie Dead Silence except someone actually watched the Colts. And are you hating on Godsmack?!

Your argument that he'll be a good hire is just as outlandish if not worse than my argument that he's a poor hire.

At least I can point out reasons why he's awful. What on earth can you say to justify him as a good coach though? I'd love to hear it.
I don't know how much blame you can place on Caldwell for the Ravens this year...

Look at the top receiving targets from 2012 and compare them to 2013

1 - Anquan Boldin - traded
2 - Torrey Smith - played well this year
3 - Dennis Pitta - hip injury, out almost whole year
4 - Ray Rice - played injured the entire year, looked extremely slow
5 - Jacoby Jones - injured half the year

The Ravens receiving stats for this year was Torrey Smith followed by an absolute clusterfuck of random players.

On top of this, teams knew that the Ravens had to throw the football due to the non existent running game. This combined with the fact that Flacco was his usual hot/cold self, made for an offense that struggled a lot during the year.

I don't really know how much blame you can put on the coaches when the players just aren't healthy or playing up to their contracts (UNLESS YOU'RE CLEVELAND THEN YOU FIRE THE COACH #PROFIT)

I'm arguing that a bunch of people are going to have really strong opinions because of #HOTINTERNETSPORTSTAKES when in reality they don't know what the **** they are talking about and almost never do.
Because you have no argument to support that notion. Yet you find it absurd that anyone could have a negative opinion on him even when there's sufficient evidence to be skeptical of this hire. Cool.

I find it hilarious that you of all people are taking a wait and see approach with a Lions organizational decision.

You must have missed the part where it was made clear he doesn't make very many faces.
