Exactly. Hindsight is 20/20.
My guess is it saves Richardson money this year to not hire a new coach. Or do you have to promote from within when you fire a coach mid-season? I'm not sure. I guess he kept him around this year to not have to hire a new coach in this give-up season and figures "why fire him if we're not going to win anyway?"

Well that's because the Lions didn't need a QB.

Whats the point in benching Clausen?
Regardless of what you think of him Matt Moore is not the answer. Very dumb move and I am by no means a Clausen apologist.
Go John Fox, go! Ruin Clausen! Take the Panthers out of contention in the NFC South for years to come! It will be your ultimate payback!
