Well, the Lions took a step forward this morning. They axed Jacques Chapdelaine (about 2 seasons too late). Too bad Dickinson just signed an extension.
I doubt that. Benevides is too good a coach to let one game (even such an important one) over-shadow a good season. I have a feeling that, unlike the firing of Chapdelaine, this is more a matter of Benny wanting to put his own stamp on the team and have less of Wally's influence on the field. I think yo might see Benevides promote from within the ranks. Jarius Jackson as OC? Perhaps a retiree out of the D backfield as a coach, probably not DC thoughStubler's failure to make adjustments to stop Darian Durant's quarterback draws in the semi-final probably did him in.
