Default Russ Grimm HC of the Lions (according to Mort)

Russ Grimm is the main candidate to become the next Detroit Lions head coach. This according to Chris Mortensens report this (Sunday) morning on ESPNGameDay. Mort made it sound as if it was all but a done deal, but said they must still go through the proper formalities of interviews when hiring a head coach.

i saw that and immediately got a sinking feeling. this seems like the 1st time in cowhers tenure the team has gone 2 years with its coaching staff intact.

I thought this might happen... The Lions need a hard nosed coach, and I figured Millen would think highly of Grimm.

This is career suicide.

I dunno... I think Russ might fit in up there pretty well. Blue collar team needs a blue collar coach. Besides, it's not like he could do much worse.

i think the lions should consider m. martz. not cause hell turn the franchise around but he should be able to do some interesting things with the offensive firepower. (if anyone could teach them how to practice)

Grimm has taken mediocre talent and made it great before. Anyone hear much about Oliver Ross this year? He crafted that OL last year into the best in the NFL, and it was comprised of a backup RG (who isn't exactly tearing it up in Baltimore this year, either) and a pretty average RT (Ross, again).

Simons is coming along, Starks is a year off, and Marvel Smith being out is killing us.

Losing Grimm will hurt...bad.
