I don't know about that. Inge was pretty bad from 2006 until last season, so it took 6 years for him to be run out of town. Santiago is still around despite being the Cory Emmerton of the Tigers for the past 6 seasons. Raiola and Backus have been on the Lions for 11 seasons, have been terrible the entire time and are still around (and even praised as being consistent veterans by some. Yeah, consistently crap).

It takes a long, long time before Detroit Sports writers actually become objective writers willing to put someone to task for their performance.
