    The headline makes it seem like they're advocating boycotting Thanksgiving itself.

    "No turkey for THIS family on Thursday. Take that Patricia!"

    Well.....if Quinn is to be canned under BBs direction I'd be OK with him replacing Caserio.

    I'd rather have Dimitroff though. After yesterday I cant imagine he survives.

    The lions are straight up garbage. This is not Matt Patricia at all. No one will ever fix the lions as they just are not cat like quick

    I don't think you can change the entire culture of a team in a year and a half. There were reports that veteran players were crying when Patricia came in because practice was too hard. It takes a while to root that out. Lots of personnel turnover while you get good character guys in.

    Who knows, maybe Patricia does suck as a coach. But I don't think we'd know by now.

    Honestly, I think reporters like that are a big part of the problem. I know Boston media is bad, but that is just ridiculous.

    This constant need to ****can their coaches is why the Lions are the Lions. Not even two years into a complete culture change and rebuild. Maybe Patricia isn’t that guy, but Jesus Christ he doesn’t really seem to have much of a rope there. All I know is that the team has been competitive in every single game they’ve been in with no signs of outright quitting. But yeah, go ahead and fire him and press that reset button again. That’s worked out swimmingly throughout your entire history.

    F the Lions.

    I can't count how many Thanksgivings I had to talk to family because there wasn't a football game worth a sh!t to watch.

    That "tradition" needs to go away.

    That goes for "America's Team" too. They have been marginally more watchable in the last couple decades.

    The fans that should be boycotting their team is the Jacksonville Jaguars. That was one of the more pathetic efforts I’ve seen in quite some time from any team not named the New York Jets. I’d be surprised if Marrone lasted the season at this point.

    Yeah, Lions-Bears is complete garbage and robbing all Americans of the opportunity to partake in a family get together while enjoying good football.

    Pretty sure Lions win that game if Stafford is playing, but I didn't watch the game.

    Someone needs to fire the writer, his writing style is terrible, repetitive and contradictory.

    The Lions outside of the Sanders years have been giving America nap inducing football for 60 years.

    And everyone blames the Turkey....Turkey's getting a bad rap.

    Matt Patricia has been at odds with the press in Detroit almost since day 1 ... started when MP pissed off some vets on the team, who complained to a DFP writer, who wrote a scathing article about it all ... and since the lions didn't win the past two super bowls, they have done nothing but roast in in the press ever since...

    but man you do have to wonder though, about whats going on there, its like they can't connect the dots ... there is some talent on that team ... they should be better than 3-7-1 at this point

    I know what the trouble is. There are two major issues. 1. Detroit is too close to ohio.
    2. The lion emblem has no eye. Symbols are more important than you think

    That’s a good call. You might find this interesting, my high school finds themselves in a good dilemma. The turkey day game is a huge rivalry but but many of our best players will be sitting out bc the team qualified for the super bowl. So it’s the old ‘risk injury vs taking out your rival’ debate
