When you go 0-16, there are tons of people to blame, but you have to keep some part of your team intact.
These are the six players the Lions have to keep if they want to succeed.
It will be interesting to see what the Lions do in free agency and the draft, and if they pull off any trades. With William Clay Ford at the helm, you know something is going to go wrong.
I mean no disrespect to Martin Mayhew and Tom Lewand, but they were assistants under Millen and need to be fired. Ford doesn't get that.
Mayhew had better stand up to Ford or it will be another long and grueling season in Detroit.
And what's with hiring guys with the last name that start with an M?
1. Matt Millen
2. Marty Morningwig
3. Steve Mariucci
4. Rod Marinelli
5. Now Martin Mayhew
I'm just saying, hire someone with a last name that doesn't start with the letter M and see what happens.
Here's my list.
