Will the Lions fire Steve Mariucci? Mike O'Hara, the longtime Lions beat writer for the Detroit News, seems to think so. Owner William Clay Ford said before the season that this was the most talented team Detroit has had in the four decades he's been the owner. I don't think real highly of Ford's talent evaluation, but if that's the owner's perception, who will he blame but the coach when the team gets off to a 3-5 start?
