I'm all for coaches being able to wear whatever they want on the sidelines. It's the NFL we're talking about, not a ballroom dancing contest. But still, I'm curious ... how is it that Jack Del Rio and Mike Nolan have to beg permission to wear suits, but Rod Marinelli shows up in a t-shirt, and everyone in the league offices is cool with it?
We're one step away from the George Costanza move of putting on a pair of sweatpants and declaring to the world, "I give up." That actually feels like it should be mandatory for a Lions head coach.
