Sunday, Matt Patricia’s Lions blew another unthinkable fourth-quarter lead. This time, his team couldn’t hold onto a 23-6 advantage over a guy named Mitch Trubisky.
The few individuals who have watched the Lions since he took over as coach are starting to realize: this guy isn’t any good.
According to Patricia, though, he’s pretty good.
Here’s the losing head coach after his embarrassing loss:
Lions head coach Matt Patricia was asked if there's something in his coaching "that isn't happening enough in the fourth quarter."
"Yeah, I don't think so," Patricia said. "I think I got probably one of the biggest plays in the fourth quarter in the history of the NFL." pic.twitter.com/chcqBLXF6U

“I don’t think so,” he claims.
Mr. Biggest Play Ever in 4th is now 9-23-1 as head coach. That is awful and it is getting worse. Patricia can’t coach and he can’t do anything right once his team takes a big lead. He’s so used to his failures, they don’t faze him.
No lead in Detroit is safe. Terrible.
