    Ford: Lewand, Mayhew will stay with Lions
    by Tom Kowalski
    Sunday December 21, 2008, 8:50 PM

    DETROIT -- Detroit Lions owner William Clay Ford said Sunday he will hire another person to upgrade the team's football operations, but it might not be a general manager with total control over all personnel decisions.

    "It depends. I don't know about the odds (of hiring a GM with total authority),'' Ford said. "Let's see who's available and what experience they have and see if they fit in any of our slots.''

    Ford said regardless of whom he hires, he wants both Martin Mayhew and Tom Lewand to play significant roles in the front office, possibly in the positions they currently hold.

    "I don't want to delineate positions to exactly where 'This is you' and "This is me.' I want to leave some latitude,'' Ford said. "When we get a good person, I want Martin in on that, I want his opinion.'

    ...As for coach Rod Marinelli and his job status, Ford said he hasn't made any decisions yet.

    "I don't know, I haven't made up my mind. I'm leaving it open,'' Ford said.

    When asked about Marinelli's record (with Sunday's defeat, the Lions have lost 22 of their past 23 games), Ford repeated: "No, I'm keeping it open.''

    If there is a change, Ford said he doesn't know yet who might spearhead that search.

    "Both of those (head coach and GM) positions now are a little nebulous so it's hard for me to say the GM will do it or I'll do it because I don't know who's going to fit in what slot,'' Ford said, adding that his goal is to make the right choices to put the Lions on a winning path.
    Un-fucking-believable.

    Actually, scratch that.

    Coming from Blind Willie Ford, totally believable.

    Changes need to start at the top in that organization.

    New ownership but that is wishful, wishful thinking.

    Hell I shudder to think where the Pats would be had Bob Kraft not bought out the team in the 90s. A lot of people will obviously point to Belichick and Brady as the reason things went from zero to gold in quick fashion. Yet the foundation was brought together from Bob Kraft and Bill Parcells.

    Agree with you Red, change started with Kraft and Parcells but everywhere Big Bill goes the team gets better. Another guy who doesn't get the credit he deserves as a player for them was Drew Bledsoe.

    On another note I'm proud of my Giant's, last night's game against the Panthers started out a little rough for them but they settled down in the 2nd half and took care of business. One of the better games in the NFL this year. Big props to Derrick Ward, Brandon Jacobs and Eli who were all good last night.

    another amazing year with Dick Jauron for my Bills. We had such promise through the first 6 games this season too! Our best start since 92'!
