    As painful as it is to say, Jim Haslett is the best thing you guys can ask for at the moment. I’ve seen Haslett’s coaching plenty of times, as a Panthers fan, and it may not be the best, but it’ll definitely be an upgrade to the disaster Linehan has introduced. The silver lining here has to be that removing Linehan will reunite the team, and hopefully, solve a bit of the errors they’ve been committing. By no means am I saying this will put them as a contender again, but it will help slow the bleeding. I’d be looking for the number of Mr. Cowher right now, hoping you can talk him out of retirement. That is, if the Lions aren’t already trying. Good luck for the remainder of the season guys, hopefully the ship turns around. I’ve always liked the Rams, for some reason, and I hate to see them doing poorly.
