Establish culture and realistic goals
It’s a whole new world in Detroit believe it or not. A new front office represents a new way of doing business and ultimately a new culture. The players will soon get to know what that entails. But the early guess is that accountability will have an awful lot to do with it.
The Lions should keep it simple in 2016. “Let’s go win a championship” should not be the mantra going into the season. Nor should “let’s go to the playoffs.” Forget the goals, just go out there and play together and for each other and just win. Not in the Al Davis sense though. This is a team that obviously believes in their coach and believes in each other. If they can put it all together on the same level, then the lofty goals can be accomplished along the way. Just play together that’s all anyone can ask for.
