Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, offensive line coach Jeremiah Washburn and assistant offensive line coach Terry Heffernan were let go Monday, Oct. 26, according to sources. Quarterbacks coach Jim Bob Cooter will take over as the new offensive coordinator. Look for Cooter, and assistant in Indianapolis with head coach Jim Caldwell, and an offensive assistant in Denver in 2013 when Peyton Manning posted huge numbers, to use short to intermediate routes to help QB Matthew Stafford get rid of the ball quicker. The Lions must also protect their quarterback better.
Fantasy Tip: The usually potent Detroit offense has been relatively stagnant so far this year, especially the running game. Whether these changes make a difference remains to be seen, but it couldn't have been much worse than it has been for the Lions. Things won't change overnight, especially if the protection isn't better and the running game doesn't vastly improve, but if they make the right adjustments for Stafford they could be slightly more efficient in the pass game. Just don't expect much downfield just yet.
