Caldwell On Future With Lions: "I'm Not Done Yet"

Caldwell On Future With Lions:

Jamaal Williams gained 82 yards rushing and caught three passes for 31 yards. It's good to see these youngsters head into their offseasons on a good note.

The Packers actually started the game very much in command, with three promising drives, beginning with a successful surprise onside kick.

Lions players have long vouched for Caldwell, and their performance in Sunday's 35-11 win over the Packers spoke loudly.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell and Chicago Bears head coach John Fox will both be fired at the conclusion of the season.

"We have an evaluation we get rolling sometime here this week, so we'll see", he said. That was partly due to many young players being forced into action before they were ready, due to injuries.

Matthew Stafford completed 20-of-29 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns in the Lions' Week 17 win over the Packers.

Asked on Sunday what he's most proud of during his four-year tenure in Detroit, Caldwell said, "I think there's some thing's that got done, but I'm not done yet".

In the locker room after the game, Tate was quick to point out he is now 2-for-2 throwing the football in his NFL career with a touchdown and a two-point conversion. He also recorded a reception for a two-point conversion from this week's honorable mention Golden Tate.

Don't tell Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy Sunday's game didn't mean anything.

Brett Hundley completed 14-of-24 passes for 172 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for Green Bay (7-9), which finished the season on a three-game losing streak.

McCarthy and the Packers coaching staff obviously saw something on field they thought they could exploit and did.

Later, the Lions make a field goal and the game is tied at 3 at the end of the first quarter. Coaching doesn't stop just because the there's nothing to play for beyond Week 17.

"Last year, we couldn't buy a big play", Stafford said. That relative feat, along with a 36-28 record and two postseason appearances over four seasons in Detroit, may not be enough for Caldwell to keep his job.

Lions: Stafford, with a lot of tape covering his right cleat, stayed in the game after hurting his right ankle on his second touchdown when DT Tom Johnson fell on him.

Cooter's done a better job this year dialing up some plays for a talented receiving corps to make more plays down the field. It's about our team, it's about our players and how they play together, it's about our fan base, our ownership and trying to get done the things that we want to get done: Winning a championship here.
