Another ex-Lion indicts last year's coaching staff, without really trying

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Earlier this week we had former Lion Jonathan Scott saying the coaching staff under Rod Marinelli was not on the same page, leading to confusion for players. This is a little more subtle than that, but still doesn't sound too good. In a Houston Chronicle article today on former Lions QB Dan Orlovsky there's this:

Orlovsky credits coach Gary Kubiak for making him emphasize his footwork during the ongoing organized team activities at Reliant Park. “That’s something I had never experienced before, never had coached that way,” Orlovsky said. “It’s going to be a big adjustment for me, but I can see differences already when I try to do that."
Dan-O never had his footwork emphasized by coaches in training? Maybe this explains the Drew Stanton situation better than anything. Among the things that make this interesting is that former Lions quarterbacks coach Scott Loeffler landed at the University of Florida, where he's now trying to make Tim Tebow pro-ready.
