NFL Amazed at Incompetence of Detroit Lions Owner William Clay Ford

Detroit Lions owner William Clay Ford is incompetent. As the grandson of Henry Ford, he always has been and always will be a very rich man, but he’s never accomplished anything in his life on his own merits, and in his 45 years owning the Lions, he has proven time and again that he hasn’t a clue how to run a football team.

I thought everyone who followed football knew this, but apparently not. Peter King writes at SI.com that the football world is shocked — shocked! — by the latest example of Ford’s incompetence:
I think no one in the league — and I mean no one — can believe William Clay Ford didn’t move to hire a new GM (even though there is great respect for Martin Mayhew) and the front-office staff.
King is well connected in the NFL, and I guess all of his league sources are telling him they’re surprised that Ford didn’t overhaul his front office. But really, why would anyone expect Ford to do such a thing? What has Ford ever done that would make anyone expect him to suddenly make big changes to his franchise, after 45 years of being the worst owner in the NFL?

The bottom line is that as long as this man owns this team, this team is going to stink. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
