  1. The Fritz Pollard Alliance is gonna give Ossenfort a lifetime achievement award if he keeps this up. All jokes aside though, if you can judge a man by what he’s done his first day on the job, he’s bringing in some very talented coaches for interviews. I hope to see Arizona looking good again soon, that division is fun when it’s competitive but it’s a mess right now.

  2. The Lions allowed the most yards in 2022 and were 3rd from last in most points scored against.

  3. The Lions’ defence is the primary reason why they didn’t make the playoffs.
    And yet this seems like a very Cardinals thing to do…

  4. As a Lions fan I am surprised he is getting interest for HC again this year. He made lemon-aid out of lemons his first season in the Detroit, but this year they were last in the NFL on defense and needed a huge second half to avoid being the worst defense ever in history. At the mid point he was under serious consideration to be fired, but the DB coach got to be the scape goat instead. That doesn’t seem like what you want from a HC candidate. Unlike the Lions OC, I’m not going to be all that sad if he leaves.

  5. No one is mentioning it? The new GM said today the first priority is Murray. Murray isn’t going anywhere. Bidwell agreed to all these contracts. He has to live up to their terms.

  6. The D was on pace for worst ever the first part of the season and they fired the DB coach. Still gave up a lot of yards and points but they were much better as the season went on and forced a lot of turnovers. He’s a good candidate. Keep in mind how young they were and had 3 stud rookies starting for them

  7. How has Detroit not fired this bum? Worst defense I’ve ever seen. Teams put up 30 points on them like it was nothing all year.

  8. Defense actually played well down the stretch. In the last ten games (8-2) the defense only had one clunker, that to the Panthers. So, the narrative that the defense was awful is just a lazy take. Still, I think there are better current candidates, those that deserve the opportunity more, than AG

    Ossenfort leaned from BB. He will get Murray excited to play, showcase him as best as possible in 2023 and hope to trade him.

    No way Ossenfort took that job to sink himself as a GM.

  10. Liked him on hard knocks. I don’t think his defensive ranking was stellar this year.

  11. As a Lions fan, I will tell you right now. YOU DON’T WANT GLENN AS YOUR HEAD COACH. His defense was truly terrible, last in the league and he shouldn’t be given any head coaching jobs until he proves that he can lead a winner in Detroit. Force him to stay in Detroit! In fact, if you’re a Cards fan, you should let ownership know that you don’t want him there!

    Well enough in the second half of the season to barely avoid being the worst in NFL history but still finished as the worst D in 2022. That D was terrible and his DB coach had to be fired while plenty wanted AG to join him.
