This is a can't lose situation in my eyes. Win and you swept the Packers, lose and you improve draft standing. It's extremely improbable at the end of this game that I'm discouraged by the results.

THIS isn't any other game though. This is a pointless fucking preseason game. 7 months to get well??? There's no way you're serious lol. You want him to play for what? So he can pad his fkn stats? Cmon bruh...that's crazy talk lol. We already know he's not the problem (Well, the smart ones do). Play your backups. See what you got at the end of the yr...evaluate a bit. This organization is already a laughing stock. Imagine a serious injury to Stafford, Tate or MJ??? The media would have a friggin field day. Fuck Caldwell and fuck the players numbers....

Oh, they'll come out and win because that's what they do. Especially if they play their starters for 4 quarters lol

Yep. Get Ruddock some pt, get Tion Green 20 carries. Get Billingsly some reps, rest anybody that has been impactful this year. Quin needs to step in and make sure Caldwell does not fuck anything up on his way out. Its like giving your gf the boot and watching her pack her shit to make sure she doesn't take anything that doesn't belong to her, or destroy anything on her way out

Unless they already told Caldwell he's going to be fired tomorrow or Quinn told him to play back-ups to evaluate talent, etc. then Stafford and the starters are playing the entire game.

The way this franchise conducts business just bothers me sometimes. If they've already made a decision they should let Caldwell know. If this pointless game factors into their decision whatsoever, then they're fucking stupid.

I think Caldwell already knows he's history...

Tony is right but this franchise is clueless. I hope the crowd is thin but I doubt it will be. I'm going to watch a bit then head to a movie. Hopefully the Lions will have a new coach in place soon with a solid draft plan.

Typical Caldwell start. Everyone looks lost. Special teams not prepared.....offense looks like the plan WAS to punt! Mission accomplished JBC.......mission accomplished.
