More talk that Matt Patricia is likely the Lions' head coach

More talk that Matt Patricia is likely the Lions' head coach

Can they convince Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to go there, as opposed to the Indianapolis Colts, which is the opening he's most connected to?

Two of the candidates the team interviewed - Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia - are still in the playoff hunt, so it could be awhile until a decision is made.

Although Patricia interviewed with the Lions last week, there was steady speculation that he would be more in play to lead the New York Giants, with whom he also interviewed.

Someone is going to be left without one of these guys, and nobody wants to be that team.

Trump is a racist and Republicans who won't denounce him are too
Trump denied in a pair of tweets on Friday that he made the comment, but referred to Haiti as a "very poor and troubled country". His racist statements have forced the media to come to terms with Trump and his history of racism despite possible backlash.

And his own coach will be someone with whom he has familiarity. More on Sunday NFL Countdown.

But if Quinn didn't cover Patricia's plans with the Lions' job, and if he hasn't been in regular backchannel communication about where things stand now, it's a dereliction of duty.

As for the Giants, they'll be in a bit of a pickle if Patricia ends up in Detroit.

It makes sense for Patricia, too.

Major power outage hits CES, a consumer electronics show
During the brief power outage, tweets about the event started trending with the hashtag #CESBlackout . Intel tweeted, "Introducing Blackout TM: The biggest thing to hit #CES2018 since #5G".

The Lions are free to hire from the remaining pool of interviewees at any time.

Then a report/rumor surfaced that the Giants were not trying to close a deal with Patricia, at least not yet. In which case Arizona would still consider Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak or Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks. Trust me, a lot of people are baffled by this. The two are said to have an excellent working relationship.

Now, a report from Pro Football Weekly claims the Lions are, in fact, the favorite to get Patricia if he decides to leave the Patriots. And Titans GM Jon Robinson feels just as strongly about McDaniels from everything I have heard for years since before he got hired in Nashville. The Giants, despite their 3-13 season, have solid personnel on defense, one of the game's best wide receivers in Odell Beckham (though his contract situation and side acts could complicate matters) and the No. 2 pick in the draft to get a quarterback. The Giants, however, seem to be moving at a slower pace than any of the other teams going through the coach search process.
