The Lions finished 0-16. ESPN has silly, useless but sometimes amusing Coach Approval Ratings, and Rod Marinelli is at 32%. Ownership apparently voted no. 32% is not good, but the coach of the first team to not win a single game in a 16 week NFL season is apparently not the worse coach in the league:
31% Gruden – Tampa Bay (136 votes)
29% Del Rio – Jacksonville (100)
22% Edwards – Kansas City (179)
16% Crennel – Cleveland (263) [fired]
15% Jauron – Bills (251)
12% Phillips – Dallas (2,247 votes; not a typo)
Mangini, the only other coach fired as I type this, was at 33%. Tim Cable is improbably at 70%, which owes as much to the small number of people who actually vote in these things as the warm glow from the season ending win. It was very odd to watch, Oakland looked like a credible team.
