New Lions coach Matt Patricia can help Detroit take off fly high as contender

The Lions should benefit from his football experience, but I'm fully convinced that Paul is going to die on the sideline. The bushy, haggard look was deceiving. He has been with the organization in various capacities since 2004, playing a role on teams that have won three Super Bowls and six conference titles.

Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reported in early January that Patricia was at the top of the Lions' wish list. "We also spent a great deal of time together on the road scouting college prospects, traveling around the country trying to find new players".

Pasqualoni's staff will include defensive backs coach Brian Stewart and Al Golden, who was one of Jim Caldwell's assistants the previous two seasons. He's in New England. From using much of his prepared remarks to speak directly to and about his family, to taking each reporter's question individually and personably, Patricia came across as focused, intelligent and kind. "I feel awful for the guys in the locker room because they're the ones that put in all that work".

He left the only National Football League job he's ever known on that confetti-strewn field at the Super Bowl, a game he's grown used to coaching that for a rare time didn't go his way. At one point during the press conference, he popped a pencil over his right ear, which was another token of his during his time with the Pats. His engaging performance on Wednesday is a good indication of that. He certainly couldn't pull the Belichick act if he can't bring the Belichickian winning with it. He and Quinn did ask candidates what they thought about those coaches on their staff. Quinn said January 1 that the new coach - now Patricia - would have autonomy over his staff. Perhaps not in crucial situations, anyway. Will he call the plays?

During his campaign, Trump promised to expand and strengthen the United States' nuclear arsenal. It says Russian Federation and China are rapidly modernizing their nuclear capabilities.

"The way that he looks at the game, his vision of the game, the way that he sees the game move and change before it actually does is unbelievable", he said.

Patricia was also asked about the "Patriot Way". "That's when you start calling it 'The Lions Way.' We've got a long way to go before we have any particular 'Way" in which we'll call our own". So he's at least saying, in strong terms, that he does not want to just be a substandard facsimile of Belichick.

"It was obviously a great opportunity for me to go home". He should try to be his own guy like he said. But to be an exact copy would probably be a mistake.
