The Lions search for new coach to replace the disgraced Jim Schwartz ended yesterday, when it was reported by ESPN that Jim Caldwell, the current Offensive Coordinator of the Ravens, had been hired for the position. You may remember Caldwell as the man who coached the Colts from 2009-2011, leading them to the Super Bowl in '09.
When he was in Indianapolis, Caldwell overall was a decent coach, but the only reason he actually had success was, let's face it, because he had Peyton Manning as his QB. So, this season, I won't expect him to win more than 8 games. The Lions already don't play well together, and now they got a new coach. It'll take them at least a season or two to get good again.
