Lions to name Matt Patricia as head coach this week

But instead of rolling into Detroit with the same getup, a freshly cut, properly-dressed Patricia took the podium in Detroit with only his signature pencil behind the ear as the last visual trace of his time as Patriots defensive coordinator.

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels led a typical Patriots offensive showcase Sunday night, as New England gained 613 yards against Philadelphia.

"I have no idea", he said. There were some of the standard "no answer" answers as well, but this was nothing like we've come to expect from former coach Caldwell or what we've observed from the Hoodie back in New England. He's a defensive-minded head coach, and having an experienced play-caller on the other side of the field while help Patricia transition to this new role.

Obviously, there are a lot of good-to-great qualities that Patricia should take from Belichick. Patricia wasted little time to put his staff together which included signing Paul Pasqualoni to be the man to run his defense.

He added that the Pakistani government wanted to stop him from raising the Kashmir issue. He said Pakistan would continue moral and diplomatic support of Kashmiris.

"Hopefully after you have some success at that point, you'll start calling it the Lions Way. There are a lot of guys that get deployed and our guys tend to do different things each year to keep us occupied while we're working, so it was just on my mind, making sure I remember all those great people who are out there helping us and protecting us". "The way that he looks at the game, his vision of the game, the way he sees the game move and change before it actually does, it's unbelievable". His response, in part: "We have a long way to go before we have any particular kind of "way". Patricia also wanted to join an organization that would allow him a relationship with ownership. He'll presumably coach against Bill Belichick and what will be a new-look staff. But according to National Football League rules, the Lions couldn't officially agree to a deal with Patricia until his team had been eliminated or the season had concluded.

Belichick had a history of taking players who were coached by Schiano at Rutgers, particularly in the secondary.

Patricia pledged the Lions will be "competitive", and said his "bottom line is about winning".

"For me, whatever anybody has done in the past really doesn't have anything to do with me", he said. "I'm just trying to do everything in my power to do everything right".
