    Interesting. Does Callahan stay, but in a lesser capacity? Seems odd.

    I'd fire Callahan and keep Frank Pollack as the OL coach!

    Unreal...absotutely STUNNING. I live in Michigan and this guy was drummed out of Detroit. He couldn't make it work with a very talented offense in Motown led by Calvin Johnson and Matt Stafford. What a colossal CLOWN move by JJ.

    seriously? He ran the LIONS into an ice berg and was a big part in the whole staff being fired. That offense was notorious for costly turnovers and penalties...LOTS of procedure penalties mainly. Clearly they were poorly coached and he was the man responsible for it.

    Would rather see a new offensive coordinator, not a new play-caller who calls the same plays in this weak scheme.

    Balty interviewed him as well three days ago I saw. Linehan said he credits Dennis Ericson for his offensive attacking style on Wikipedia.

    Do we run the same offense? Don't even know. I'm for anybody outside of JG calling plays.

    Wait....changed my mind. Duh he's been coaching for Detroit since 2009. Right up JG's ally. Passes 50 times per game! We should just get Mike Leach.

    Right. We might not ever run the ball again with those three together.
