It’s the off-season and we have been focusing on what the Bears have done in free agency. Let us not forget that we have 3 NFC North teams that are also addressing needs and making moves as well. To get some insight on our NFC North Division rivals, we have contacted our frienemies at fellow fansided sites to bring you “NFC North Rivals – 5 Questions”. Today’s questions are being answered by Thomas Bieszk from SideLion Report, the Detroit Lions Fansided site.
Do Lions fans feel Jim Caldwell is the right hire as head coach?
It is a pretty mixed bag of emotions around here in regards to Caldwell. I personally feel like this was a great hire, and it hard to understand why there would be skeptics. Caldwell fits all criteria the organization was looking for when the vacancy opened: an offensive-minded coach that has worked a lot with quarterbacks and also has head coaching experience. Time, as always, will tell about how successful he will be, but it is initially an excellent hire.
