Jim Caldwell talks about plans for Lions offense

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on February 20, 2014 – 2:09 pm

Jim CaldwellINDIANAPOLIS–New Lions Coach Jim Caldwell was asked what would be different on offense now that he’s the head coach.

“The big thing is … winning. That’s the most important thing. The most important thing is putting points on the board and winning football games. And I think that’s going to be our focus moreso than some landmark that we set in terms of production from an offensive standpoint. You know it’s going to be a productive offense because we have players. We’ve got Reggie Bush, we’ve got Matthew (Stafford), obviously we’ve got Calvin (Johnson) on the outside. We’ve got guys that can play the game,” Caldwell said.

Caldwell is an offensive guru who produced championship results in Indianapolis and Baltimore. He replaces Jim Schwartz, a former defensive coordinator.

“We’ve got a good, solid offensive line up front. We’re going to be able to run the ball. Joique Bell has done a great job for us. There are going to be a lot of things, obviously, that we’re going to be able to do well in that sense, but for us to just talk about, ‘Hey, we’re going to throw for 10 million yards,’ the most important thing I want to focus on is what it’s going to take for us to win. Minimize mistakes. Don’t turn the ball over. Be able to run the ball, particularly in our division where we have to go outside and play in some
inclement weather. You can’t always just wing it up and down the field, you’ve got to be able to run the ball as well. So those are some of the things we want to talk about, our grittiness, our toughness,” Caldwell added.

    I am just happy that the Lion’s have a head coach that has no game management skills. (Google it)
