Like the other ratings, Vinnie Iyer moves Detroit back a couple of spots and remarks that the team is in poor shape in terms of their defense. That’s been the huge issue more than the quarterback play, which is something that is very telling and the biggest reason the team cannot win this season. As Iyer says, he thinks that Matt Patricia gets another year to try and right the ship. Even if fans don’t like it, that might be close to reality for the near future in Detroit all things considered.
