(WXYZ) — Terry Bradshaw has been vocal in his criticism of Lions head coach Matt Patricia this season.
He hasn't been alone in that standpoint, but Bradshaw's platform on FOX's Sunday pregame show is bigger than most.
"Patricia in Detroit can't coach. Smartest guy in the world, rocket scientist, engineer, can't coach a lick. Can't hold a lead when they're leading by 10 points. He's gotta be gone," Bradshaw said.
The Lions are 1-3 this season. Patricia is the first NFL coach ever to lose six straight games in which his team had double-digit leads.
The Hall of Famer criticized Patricia a couple more times on the pregame show this year.
“If you ask me, it’s pretty simple. When a coach comes in, he makes a difference. This guy has not made a difference. This quarterback is being wasted," Bradshaw said on September 20.
Michael Strahan added on this Sunday, talking about the way coaches like Andy Reid and Pete Carroll have evolved as players' coaches.
"You look at Matt Patricia, I think they've just been x's and o's guys. You have to have relationships if you want to win in this league - with your players that'll run through a wall for you," Strahan said.
