Something that I would like to point out, and that needs to be pointed out is that Jim Caldwell in 2017 as the Detroit Lions head coach allowed a touchdown against Minnesota with only 10 men on the field. Sounds like what we just heard yesterday. But that was with head Coach Matt Patricia.

Second week in a row this happened during a key play.
Jim Caldwell in 2017 as the Detroit Lions head coach allowed a touchdown against Minnesota with only 10 men on the field. The following week Jim Caldwell only had 9 men on the field! Only 9!
The Lions allowed a TD with only 10 men on the field against Minnesota. Jim Caldwell said they had to be better. Then they played with just 9 against Baltimore.— kyle meinke (@kmeinke) December 3, 2017

So to say you’d want Jim Caldwell back because Patricia has had 10 men on the field in two games in a row is a bit condescending. Yeah, it’s happened three times this year where Detroit has had 10 men but how do you only have 9 men on the field? That’s ridiculous.
And if you want to bring up how Patricia did it twice in one game:
