Obviously we might not be the best authority to be dispensing career advice. But at least it beats sports editors practicing law. We would, however, like to encourage Mike Martz to pass up an offer to be the offensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions.
Martz will notify the Lions on Monday regarding his intentions to accept the Lions offer according to the Detroit News. Although Martz does have the arrogance to gamble his career on Joey Harrington, he should hold out for that Raiders gig.
Don't sell yourself short Mike. This marriage between you and the Raiders has been ordained by the football gods. Do not condescend to take this offensive coordinators position. It is beneath you. You are Mike "Freaking" Martz, offensive genius. Don't take this Lions job.
