Why the Detroit Lions are going to prove everyone wrong
By Ryan Russell
Now with a championship level coaching staff and some crafty free agent pick-ups in place, the mindset has clearly changed in Detroit. The Lions are no longer the sad story we have seen for so many years.
It’s apparent that the Lions’ brass wants to win and they want to win now. This team is no longer the same old Lions and the OnePride nation can bank on that! It’s time to crawl out of this shadow of past failures.
In addition to everything the Lions organization has accomplished thus far, the players are motivated and want to play for head coach Matt Patricia. The team has bought into what coach Patricia has been preaching.
We are seeing players holding themselves accountable, punishing themselves for mistakes on the practice field in the form of running laps and doing push-ups. When practice concludes, many players stay out on the field and continue honing their craft on their own personal time.
So, once again, here I am addressing the loyal fans of Detroit. The same old Lions are no longer here. This is a new era of Detroit football being branded right before our eyes. We have the coaches, players, and front office in place to make a run in 2019 and beyond.
I implore you, now is the time to get loud and rep our team for what they are, not what they were. Throw all of the negativity out the window. These Patricia led Detroit Lions are for real ladies and gentleman!
