Biggest Disappointment

A Shawn Robinson on defense. Step back in run defense without Ngata and no pass rush at all
Jarrad Davis coverage. Sometimes in run D too
Cornelius Washington did almost nothing
Lawson regressed some. Hayden was terrible
Whitehead towards end of year had some issues but good earlier in the year
Spence played too much due to other injuries. Same with Zettel. Zettel started strong but fizzled
Ansah injuries galore again led to way less playing time and not consistent pass rush. Though 9 sacks now
25 PPG defense allowed

Oline injuries
Abdullah
Tate down the stretch (shoulder injury)

Shouldn't have been holes talent wise. Became holes execution wise. And the O and D line injuries ravaged this team. Stafford ankle against tough toughest opponents in Saints and Vikings

Bring on the NFC West and AFC East, NFC North, at Dallas and either Saints or Carolina at Ford Field

Lions get healthy on Oline and fix the pass rush and good things will happen

Offensive Line, all of them. Heading into the season, I fully expected a cleaner pocket for Stafford and a better run game. Instead Stafford is running for his life all season long, and our run game is just as bad as its always been

Just not a elite coaching staff. All teams have injuries , and this team only seems to beat .500 or under teams with this staff. We have seen enough it is time for a new staff with intovative thinking .

Typically yes, but when the season is on the line they once again lay an egg.

Too many to name.........


1) Caldwell is #1 to me. He looked totally lost this year and cost this team wins at least 4-5 times IMO..
2) No running game at all
3) Defense fell apart


Focus on the draft needs to be on RB, DE, DT, LB. They have a boatload of money on FA's, so go after an up and coming CB or S.

what are we not disappointed in is the question, Stafford, Prater and maybe some of the secondary guys. that's about it. everything else is a joke.

O line joke
D line Huge joke
Running Game, NON exsistant
JBC gutless
JC deer in headlights.
Austin, over rating

they all need to go.

I would say Caldwell also but I didn't expect much anyway. Same Caldwell as always.
