A Loss at Home to Washington Could Seal Matt Patricia's Fate

John Maakaron and Logan Lamorandier discuss if a loss at home to the Washington Football Team could seal the fate of Matt Patricia on the latest LionsMaven podcast

There appears to be an increased sentiment that Lions head coach Matt Patricia's tenure in Detroit is coming to a close.

At the halfway point of the season, Detroit seemingly does not do anything particularly well other than punting and blocking punts.

Despite weekly mentions of the importance of fundamentals and consistency, Detroit now struggles to get 11 men out on the football field. 

On this week's LionsMaven podcast, John Maakaron and Logan Lamorandier explore the possibilities of a coaching change if Detroit loses its Week 10 matchup with the Washington Football Team.

Also, discussed on this week's podcast:

  • Midseason takeaways
  • Keys to victory against the Washington Football Team
  • Has Matt Patricia worn out his welcome with the players?
  • Have the NFL's COVID-19 protocols drained the players?
  • How Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn can salvage their jobs for next season
