In today's MMQB article by Peter King, he included a quote from Rod Marinelli (the now disposed Lions HC) regarding the worst season in NFL history; "Rod is a very good man. He thanked us for fighting to the end. But he said to us, 'This is us. We own this. We did this. So man up.' '' This is the thing that drove me nuts about Willie all season. His quotes were always "We're in the right positions, just not making plays".... I know he eventually came forward saying that leadership begins with him and some of the blame can be focused on him, but I think that was too little too late. I hated that he was so willing to throw his players under the bus during the season and not shoulder any of the criticism until after season end. I think more people could take that advice from Coach Marinelli above rather than living in a world of denial that seemed to afflict Coach Martinez all season. I feel better now after getting that off my chest.
