Matt Patricia prefers Giants' job over Lions'

A report from Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News has revealed that New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is the favorite to land the New York Giants head coaching job.

While Leonard did not get into too many specifics as to which signs were pointing to Patricia heading to the Big Apple, he did point out that Patricia would prefer to go to the Giants over the Lions. National Football League rules state Patricia can not execute a contract until the Patriots' season ends.

Many believe Patricia is the Lions first choice because of his ties to GM Bob Quinn, but a report out of the New York Daily News says all signs point to Patrica joining the Giants.

In fact, Fantano notes that Sam Smith's "Midnight Train" is far more responsible for "ripping off" Radiohead Lana Del Rey's tune . Interestingly, Radiohead themselves were successfully sued by The Hollies over Creep's similarities to The Air That I Breathe .

A lot of people have speculated Patricia as the front runner to take over as the Lions next head coach, and now the New England Patriots are also planning on losing their highly-touted defensive coordinator to Detroit. But background work has and can be done to hire head coaches, with an official announcement to come quickly once a candidate is done in a previous job.

But according to King, Patricia "favors" the New York Giants, who interviewed him earlier this month. Would you be in favor of the Lions wearing something similar to this in the future?

Maybe Matt Patricia isn't going to Detroit after all. Sports Illustrated's Peter King adds that while the Lions favor Patricia over Houston Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel for their head coaching job, Patricia is now leaning towards the Giants' head coaching position, meaning Vrabel could eventually land in Motor City. Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks could enter the mix as well, as he hits the interview circuit this week.
