According to one newspaper writer's opinion it is "up to Buono to fix this mess". Hmmm...I wonder how many others feel the same way.
Don't get me wrong. I think Wally is a classy guy I found some of his recent remarks off the wall.
Wally says," They're [the players] not executing the stuff the way it is suppose to be done."
Now, why is that I have to ask?
Wally says, "These are young and inexperienced quarterbacks who have a lot of upside and have to go through growing pains."
Now hang on Wally just a darn minute. When you say, These are young and inexperienced QBs who exactly are you talking about? Printers? Surely not. He's had plenty of pro experience. Jackson? Ditto! Lulay. Okay.... We'll give you that one. But although Lulay threw a game losing interception against Toronto a couple of week's ago was it Lulay who called that play while the Lions were ahead? I think not. Although Lulay fumbled the ball somewhere around the Esks' 40 yard line the next week why was he trying to pass instead of play it conservatively? Was that his call or was it made from the bench?
Your perception is that fans are looking for 'instant gratification'. I don't agree with you and I think you need to give the fans more credit than that. I think they've been very patient and they've shown a lot of confidence in your judgment and in the coaching staff.
In my opinion the Lions should not have lost their last 3 games but they did. Yes, Lulay still has to hone his skills. I really think Lulay will help win some games for the Lions. I also think the D is doing what it has to do to keep the team in the game.
I don't know what you see on the practice field during the week but from where we the fans are sitting there is a lot of quality talent that is being wasted by stupid calls from the bench and bush league play on the field. I love the Lions and while there are a lot of positives to take from each game the last thing I want to be reading from the head coach is that fans want 'instant gratification'. A third of the season will be over next week. How long are you wanting us to wait? I just want to see an honest intelligent work ethic- from everyone. No egos, not stubbornness. If replacing certain coaching staff that you are overseeing is going to make the difference then better now than when a playoff berth is out of reach. Don't you think so?
