ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- The Lions haven't had a winning season since 2000 and are eight years removed from their last playoff appearance.
But one of the men who signs the checks believes the team can turn things around this fall.
Vice chairman William Clay Ford Junior says he thinks third-year coach Rod Marinelli finally has a team of players who understand and believe in his system.
The son of owner William Clay Ford wouldn't discuss Matt Millen, whose record as team president is 31-81, or make predictions for the coming season.
The younger Ford stopped by the Lions' Allen Park training facility yesterday. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
