How to Turn Around an NFL Franchise

After the Lions went 0-16 this year, it became fashionable for bloggers and mainstream internet writers to suggest a program for turning around struggling franchises. I have a suggestion of my own and it only requires two easy steps.

1) Interview Ravens' Defensive Coordinator Rex Ryan for your head coaching vacancy.

2) Hire some other no-name coordinator instead.

It worked for the Dolphins (Tony Sparano, 1-15 to 11-5), Falcons (Mike Smith, 4-12 to 11-5) and Ravens (John Harbaugh, 5-11 to 11-5), and it could work for others.

or 3:) hire Bill Parcells in the front office, on the unlikely chance he opts out of his contract with the Dolphins. Wasn't Rod Marinelli himself a no-name coordinator, before being hired? Same with Scott Linehan? Same with Jim Zorn, who actually 1 less game than Gibbs last year.

Yeah, but those teams forgot to interview Rex Ryan. See where it got them?
