    The Lions were so good under Fontes all the co ords and coaches were stolen by other teams. Yearly.
    He still did some dumb things like taking the foot off the gas and letting teams come back on the Lions.

    That IS sad.
    More of an indictment on OWNERSHIP than anyone else.

    Yet Wayner never even sniffed another coaching position after getting canned by the Lions.
    ...hmmm, wonder why?


    IMO: Lions fans are the most loyal fans in all of sports. After a lifetime of disappointment and mis-management, they continue to support the vision of the Ford family. ...wow.

    For all the "success" that the Lions had those three years or so, the won in SPITE of Wayne Fontes, not BECAUSE of him. By: BDL

    While Fontes was a joke, and a bad X and O's head coach... he has to be given credit for getting the TEAM to play as a unit that cared for each other and at this point is the best coach the Lions have had in my life time... (sad as that is to say). By:Round

    these two statements basically cover the history of Wayne Fontes...Lions head Coach.....
