After 13 Straight Losses, Rod Marinelli Is Finally Off His Rocker!

Poor Rod Marinelli. His tenure as the Detroit Lions head coach looks to have finally taken its toll on him. The Detroit Free Press has posted some highlights from his weekly post conference with the media and he had some “interesting” answers to the questions that he was asked.

When asked, “how stunned he is to be 0-13”? Marinelli responds by saying:

I am, especially after the preseason we had and how fast we played. I am. It is surprising to me. But you deal with it and move on and try to get better.

I’m sure how fast you play isn’t the issue, Rod. You may want to concentrate on how good you play.

He was also asked, “how he rectifies his belief in himself and the team with the reality of the performance and the record”? Marinelli responds to this by saying:

It’s just me. It’s what I believe. I go right back to work. I don’t like some of the things that I see, but I know they’re correctable, and there’s some things I do like, and I keep working on those things

But when Marinelli is asked a follow up question about others not seeing the work, things get really interesting. Marinelli then proceeds to prove that he has truly lost his mind. Here’s what he says:

It’s the invisible, I guess. No, that’s what I’m saying. I believe in the invisible. I do. I think you go out and you have faith in what you do. If you don’t have it, you’re nothing. You’re not a man. You come out like that and you give up, I have no respect for you. I’m not done, OK? If you just say, ‘I give up. We’re no good. We can’t do this. Oh, woe is me,’ and look for pity, that’s disgraceful to me. I look for every positive I can, every positive I can find on this football team, to get them better. Now, I can dwell on the negative all day, but that’s what everybody else does for me. So I prefer to go out and see what I can do to make it better, what I can do to improve, improve myself and my staff.

The invisible huh? Those aren’t the words of a stable man, but what can you expect from anyone affiliated with the Detroit Lions organization. I mean, Matt Millen once called the shots. Talk about unstable.

Well Rod, it’s no wonder that you “believe in the invisible” because if you’re looking for positive with this team, then you’re looking for something that is invisible. And just so you know Rod, you ARE done, OK? You are done on so many different levels, you just don’t know it yet. But everyone else does.
