Since this is MLK Day, this is so apropos. I personally adhere to his statement to judge people based upon the content of their character rather than the color of their skin on a daily basis. Unfortunately, many do not, so his dreams have gone in vain. It's sad.

Like back, even though I refuse to participate on Facebook due to NSA surveillance. I used to be on Twitter though until they suspended me and I haven't gone back. Ya just gotta love the biased politically correct tolerance these days, dontcha? :D

Ken Zampese was interviewed today and looks like they're making a decision soon. Another white candidate.

All of these coaches are very qualified. You can look at it as racial, or you can look at it like they're finally looking at qualified candidates that are constantly overlooked by white front offices.

So... a bet?

Lions hire Lombardi as offensive coordinator, Joe that is

There’s a perception the Lions may settled for Jim Caldwell as their head coach.

But he’s already delivered a Lombardi.

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Caldwell has hired Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi as his offensive coordinator.

He is the grandson of some guy named Vince, who used to coach back in the day.

Joe Lombardi has been with the Saints since 2007, and became quarterbacks coach in 2009. It’s an under-the-radar hire, but Caldwell wasn’t exactly a splashy hire as head coach.

Putting a guy who has worked with Sean Payton and Drew Brees on a daily basis can only help as they try to fix Matthew Stafford.

So, what will a cross between Mathew Stafford, Drew Brees
, and Peyton Manning look like?

Call it what you want, I didn't see the hiring process as racist so I'm not going to call it that. Call me PC-ussy, but perhaps you are looking for something that doesn't exist based upon the color of the coaches skin.

I find it sad that the Lions finally hire a minority coach, who happens to hire a black DC whom he worked with in Baltimore, and suddenly folks start looking towards racism as the reason. I'd say somebody is judging a "book by it's cover", and it ain't the Lions new coach.

Hmm, it seems to me that there was a thread created for the purpose for banning someone, for calling names. I can't remember who it was, but I think his name was hypocrates!

Well, since name-calling is accepted, I will go along for the ride.

Looks, it's overwhelming clear that TruckinMack is a bigoted, close-minded idiot.

He sees the Lions hire a black HC who then goes out and hires a black DC, and his bigoted mind immediately jumps to "racism!"

It's incredibly satisfying to see him be proven wrong.

You have liberal idiots like Bill Maher who will say really dumb stuff like "socialism is just a euphemism for the n-word"

But it's hard to blame Bill Maher when there are people like TruckinMack out there proving him right every day.

Blueskies, it looks like you will win this one, and Congrats for being the only Lionbacker with the stones to make the bet. I've no idea why the hostility. Name calling, hate and misrepresenting someone's words are all things Liberals do - not Libertarians. Your faux rage is right out of emo drama queen Hollywood... but I've always pegged you as a Liberal anyways, so I'm not surprised in the least.

You should really chill and enjoy a win rather than taking a dump all over the place. If you think this somehow enhances your presence, please continue. It's quite entertaining.
