It has not been a very merry season for the Detroit Lions or their fans but that did not stop the team from tweeting out a Merry Christmas message at the stroke of midnight.

Merry Christmas, Nation!
The 2018 version of the Detroit Lions sucked horribly. The head coach sucked. The offense sucked. The defense sucked. Heck, even the special teams sucked at times.
So, with that established, what can be done during the offseason to turn things around on time for the kickoff of the 2019 season?
Though I have a few ideas up my sleeve that would help the team to improve greatly, the biggest idea is one that will likely blow your mind. Mostly because I am not sure if it has ever been done before.
In my opinion, there is one BOLD move the Lions can make this offseason that will, in turn, put the wheels in motion for a 2019 NFC North Title run.
Now, I get it. You are probably already shaking your head and calling me a moron for thinking the Lions have any chance in 2019.
But they do.
IF and ONLY IF they make this BOLD move. (Technically it is a trio of moves but stick with me)
Ladies and gentlemen, the Detroit Lions Lions should make the following moves as soon as the 2018 season comes to an end.
- Fire Jim Bob Cooter (Duh!)
- Demote Matt Patricia to defensive coordinator (WHOA!)
- Hire Mike McCarthy as head coach (Say what?)
There, I said it. (Well, actually I typed it)
First of all, firing current offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter is the biggest no-brainer of the upcoming offseason. In fact, I already have begun working on a shell for the piece so as soon as it happens, I can notify you immediately. There is no need to defend this, so I won’t.
