More on Linehan

No official word yet, but it appears that new offensive coordinator Scott Linehan will coach quarterbacks, too. Linehan, who interviewed with new Lions coach Jim Schwartz on Thursday, played the position in college when he led Idaho to consecutive I-AA playoff appearances.

I mentioned Linehan's relationship with former Michigan State coach John L. Smith in an earlier post. I should also point out he and former MSU quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier, now the QBs coach at Washington, have a history together. I don't know what this means for Drew Stanton, who played for Smith and Nussmeier at MSU and has wallowed on the bench (and injured reserve) in his two years with the Lions, but I'm hesitant to write him out of Detroit's long-term plans just yet. I imagine Schwartz and Linehan will make their own evaluation after seeing Stanton on the field, but at the very least two people Linehan trusts will have good things to say about the 2007 second-round pick.

i've been calling for the lions to NOT write off stanton UNTIL he has a chance to undo the martz effect on his mechanics. again, if anyone can help put stanton on the map, linny can. it's ABOUT DAMN TIME they figure out what they have with him - and i'm pretty sure they're not gonna be disappointed as long as he stays healthy....which is why we NEED an LT in the first round.

get rid of shitna, resign orlo if he's not too expensive, and let him, pep, and stanton fight it out in TC.
