The Detroit Lions have fallen into last place in the NFC North and there are signs they may have a hard time getting back into the division race.When coach Matt Patricia met with reporters on Monday Darrell Henderson white jersey , he didn't wait for their questions on his team's 24-9 loss to division rival Minnesota."There's a lot of corrections to be made, a lot of things we obviously have got to do better," Patricia said in his opening remarks. "There were some good things on the tape, but just way too many bad things that overshadowed it."Those good moments certainly would have been condensed to tiny snippets. The bad ones were splattered all over the game tape.On Monday night, the Lions fired special teams coordinator Joe Marciano."I spoke to Joe and informed him of my decision to relieve him of his responsibilities with our team," Patricia said in a statement. "I appreciate Joe's leadership of our special teams units over the last three and a half seasons and have great respect for his many years of service as a coach in the National Football League. On behalf of our team and the entire coaching staff, I want to personally thank Joe for his commitment to the Detroit Lions and wish him and his family the best moving forward."Detroit's team has been in reverse lately.The Vikings (5-3-1) limited Detroit to a season-low 209 yards as the Lions (3-5) lost their second straight. Minnesota's defense sacked Matthew Stafford a franchise-record 10 times."I am embarrassed," Lions center Graham Glasgow said. "It was a bad day for us, and our team. We need learn from this."Detroit was held to single digits in points for the first time since a 17-6 loss to the New York Giants on Dec. 18, 2016. The Lions put together just two drives of more than 30 yards and were 4 for 15 on third downs."What happens is as the season goes on and you have some success in certain areas, teams are going to gear up to try and stop those things that you do, and you're going to have to do it differently," Patricia said. "We've got to be able to handle those changes better than what we're doing right now."And on the other side, the Lions have allowed a run play of 40 or more yards in five games this season."We've had weeks where we feel we didn't necessarily perform on the one day of the week where we have to perform well," Patricia said.As he readies his team for another division road game Sunday at against the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears (5-3), Patricia is convinced that player for player, his team matches up equally with every other team in the division."I think we have a lot of good players on this team Darrell Henderson Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , I really do," Patricia said.Patricia said talent isn't the issue bringing down his team."I would say with both offensive and defensive lines, the point of emphasis is fundamentals," Patricia said. "Some of our fundamentals got out of whack. Some of our techniques weren't necessarily where it needs to be on a consistent basis."Fundamentals and execution is what's holding us back now. That's where we've got to start."The problem he faces is that with the majority of practice time each week dedicated to game-planning, Patricia will be hard-pressed to find time to go back to basics with his team.After a 1-3 start, the Lions won two straight and looked to have righted their season. But these past two losses have them struggling again."As a team, we need to get better," receiver Marvin Jones said. "It is definitely disappointing, but at the same time, we just have to go out there and execute. We cannot shoot ourselves in the foot. I think we definitely did that and we just have to get better."Lions offensive lineman Frank Ragnow perhaps summed up the state of the team as they reached the midseason point."If you're not taking a step forward in this league, then you're taking a step back," Ragnow said. The New Orleans SaintsNew Orleans was awarded a NFL in 1967 born out of the deal to merge the old NFL and AFL. In 1970 when the two leagues fully merged, the Saints joined the Los Angeles Rams in the newly named NFC West along with the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers from the old NFC Coastal Division.As an expansion team in ‘67, all other teams had to provide a list of rostered players which the expansion teams could choose from to help start the Saints’ franchise. One of the most famous NFL books ever written was Instant Replay. A diary of the Green Bay Packers by Hall of Fame Packers guard and kicker Jerry Kramer in collaboration with sportswriter Dick Schaap, the book includes a passage where Kramer sees Packers Head Coach Vince Lombardi crying in the hallway. He asked his coach what was wrong. Lombardi replied, “The Saints chose Paul Hornung.” Though Vince was a disciplinarian, his two favorites players were the knuckleheads: RB Paul Hornung and TE Max McGee.And so the Saints were born by breaking the heart of the greatest coach ever to grace the sidelines.The 1960s through the 70sAl Hirt Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019 , the famous New Orleans trombone player, was a minority owner of the franchise when they were developed in 1967. Tom Fears, the Hall of Fame former Rams wideout. was their head coach. Their best quarterback in those early years was old man Billy Kilmer who was also a castoff like Hornung.As a ten year old, I had the unfortunate experience of having to watch this hapless team attempt to play football, a team worse then the Atlanta Falcons. I never got over the first years of the Saints. I had to pinch myself when they actually won the Super Bowl in 2010.What had the NFL world come to...In the old days, the goalposts were inside the endzone. In one instance, Fears, sitting on his stool and smoking cigarettes, called for a punt on fourth down as the Saints were backed up on their own goalline inside the five-yard line. The punter got the snap and kicked the ball right into the goal post. The ball sailed right back into the Coliseum bleachers giving two points for the Rams on the safety. The Rams crowd roared with laughter, What a pathetic franchise.From 1967 to 1979, the New Orleans Saints played a total of 22 games against the Los Angeles Rams winning only 6. Four of these wins were in New Orleans, who originally played in Tulane stadium and didn’t move inside the Superdome until 1975.During these years I would judge how well the Rams were going to do that year, by whether they swept the Saints. If not, it was going to be long season.The Saints had Archie Manning at quarterback, father of both Peyton and Eli. No one felt sorry for Archie during those lean years, but as time has passed fans of the game recognize he was the best thing about New Orleans. Who knows how good Archie could have been with a decent team surrounding him.The 1980s through 90sIn 1985, Tom Benson Darrell Henderson black jersey , a wealthy car dealership owner, acquired the team from John Mecom. Benson was a flamboyant owner who used to strut on the sidelines after a win, few and far between, dancing in the Superdome with his silly New Orleans Saints umbrella. In 1985, Benson reached out to Jim Mora, who was coaching in the USFL, to turn the franchise around. Prior to Mora, the Saints had stained coaching careers for Hank Stram, Dick Nolan, Bum Phillips and our own current defensive coordinator, Wade Phillips. But in 1987, Mora finally did it. The Saints reached the playoffs. But after a decade, he was replaced by Mike Ditka who is remembered for his Saints tenure mostly for the monster trade in the 1999 NFL Draft to move up to take RB Ricky Williams.It was during this period of ineptitude that Saints fans became famous for wearing brown bags over their heads with “Aints” on it.Typical of this was the longest punt return in NFL history when Rams CB Robert Bailey ran the ball 105 yards for a touchdown because they just stopped paying attention:The turnaround years 2000-10The most notable matchup between the squads came in a playoff wildcard game one year after the Rams won the Super Bowl.Down by just three with 1:51 remaining, PR Az-Zahir Hakim muffed the punt ending the chances of the Rams repeating as champs to lose the game, 31-28.That loss prompted me to begin to believe that the Superdome is not a safe place for the Rams. As real estate barons constantly remind buyers, location, location Darrell Henderson Jersey Mens , location. In 2001, the Rams lost the Super Bowl in, of all places, the Superdome.In 2002, the NFL realigned the league’s divisions to better represent geography. The Aints moved into the NFC South.In 2006, the Saints finally got their act together hiring Sean Payton as the team’s new head coach. Coming over as the offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys from the Bill Parcells with Drew Brees at quarterback, the Saints upset the heavily favored Indianapolis Colts led by Archie’s son Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl.This Sunday, a new history will be madeSince 2011, these two teams have faced each other just five times and three times since the Rams returned to Los Angeles. The LA Rams 2.0 are 1-2. This weekend, the Rams have a chance for redemption having lost 45-35 in Week 9.The Rams still maintain a 41-33 overall record against the Saints. But this game will have ramifications far more important then any preceding game the two have played against each other as the victor will move on as NFC Champions into Super Bowl LIII.I’m not a Saints hater, but I don’t like Sean Payton. He’s arrogant and has refused to acknowledge any responsibility for Bountygate. Whether you agree or disagree with the penalties the NFL issued, Payton took pleasure running up the score 49-21 purposely against the Rams in 2016. He wanted to make a point since his former defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, was on our sideline whom he blamed for ratting on him. He did the same thing again against our Rams in a meaningless preseason game this year.I’ve come to the opinion that Payton lacks the class to be a two-time Super Bowl Champion head coach.The Saints will always remain for me that same old expansion franchise I remember over 50 years ago with their fans wearing what I remember them most for...that brown lunch bag over their heads with the rightful name of their team.The New Orleans Aints.
