A former Detroit Lions player told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press that head coach Matt Patricia was " consistently late "to team meetings.

Birkett also noted that Patricia has been late for media sessions.

Provided the ex-Lion's account is true, that fact adds to a long list of issues during Patricia's first year in Detroit.

The 5-1

0 Lions are guaranteed to finish in the NFC North cellar. Detroit ranks in the bottom half of the league scored and points allowed per game.

Off the field, Patricia has not gotten along well with the media. That's not a big deal when you're winning, but his team is not. So he's confident in his 2019 return.

As Birkett thus wrote, there's a question as to whether the team "bought" into Patricia to begin with. D Ricky Jean Francois had the following response when asked after his team's 27-9 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

"That's the million-dollar question, and we need an answer," Francois said. "I wish I knew."

The Lions close to the Bay of Green Packers on Sunday at 1 pm ET.
