  • Do you think a Lions fan should be excited or concerned?

  • I'm alliance if I'm a Lions fan.

  • I'm concerned.

  • I liked what the enemy had to say about not getting a job better than what Campbell said.

  • If I'm if I'm evaluating talent, so to speak, at the head coaching position and the enemy says, Of course, this is something.

  • I'm working for it.

  • I'm grateful to keep it A and I don't want to distract from what we're trying to accomplish.

  • That sounds like a head coach to me.

  • We're gonna bite off there.

  • Now.

  • I see what Campbell thinks he's trying to get across.

  • But listen, you see from the introductory press conferences sometimes where?

  • Like Oh and the B enemy sound, also from earlier.

  • I like the enemy's talking about his disappointment and not getting a job.

  • He sounds more like a head coach than Campbell sounded.

  • It is introductory press conference.

  • Dan Campbell played three years for the Detroit Lions, 2006, 7 4000 and eight, his record.

  • He was a tight end.

  • His record there when he was with the Lions as a player was three and 13 79 and then Oh, and 16 that amounts of my math is correct.

  • Max Kellerman.

  • That amounts to about a 3, 10 and 38 record three years.

  • That is your resume with the Detroit Lions as a player, and that is how you show up at the press conference.

  • First of all, legitimate argument could have been made.

  • He should have been fined on the spot in this press conference.

  • I mean, you're talking about biting kneecaps and stuff like that last time I checked.

  • I mean, it's a metaphor.

  • You say.

  • It's a metaphor.

  • You want toe e literally.

  • I'm taking it literally.

  • Why should I?

  • That's most bizarre press conference I've ever seen.

  • Why the hell should I?

  • E?

  • I'm just saying, Come on, nasa.

  • I'm just looking at it.

  • I'm like, Damn, yeah, I mean, you know, that's what that's about.

  • That's bounty gate kind of stuff right there.

  • I mean, what the hell is going on here?

  • So in the end, here's the deal.

  • Here's the deal.

  • He started talking about how to Detroit Lions, you know, represent the city way.

  • Get up when we get knocked down.

  • Well, the lions have it.

  • I'm going to repeat what I said to you a little while ago.

  • The Detroit Lions, Ladies and Gentlemen one has won one playoff game in 63 years.

  • I'm 53.

  • They've won one playoff game in 63 10 years before I was born.

  • Thes dudes that that that's the last time they won a play with last time they won a playoff game was in 1991 30 30 years ago.

  • This is just some pathetic.

  • It's the most overlooked record of fertility and spice.

  • Let me play Devil's Advocate for a second.

  • He was he was trying to embody the city, saying The city of Detroit is a resilience.

  • But the problem is we know the team take actually overcome the adversity but the city itself and how hard it's been hit.

  • Take the metaphor of biting the kneecap.

  • What apparently you think he's trying to get across is if we get knocked down, we're going to do whatever it takes to take a piece out of.

  • You were going to keep getting up, but metaphor immediately goes toe like something dirty something We're willing Thio Funny time in here.

  • Let me chime in here.

  • Gentlemen, let me chime in here, ladies and gentlemen, because here's the deal.

  • Okay, you want to sit up there?

  • You wanna be that rock kind of guy?

  • Alright, that's fine.

  • He's a grown men who paid mortgages and and have Children and have families and their careers on the line.

  • And somehow, when they put on a lion's uniformed, they've managed one playoff win in 63 years, one of the last 30 years.

  • Last victory, last playoff, when was 30 years ago.

  • And the other playoff victory was 30 years before that.

  • So here's my point.

  • The only thing he's got going for him is that has been 30 years, because seems like every 30 years you might want a playoff game.

  • That's only thing he's got going.

  • What a depressing he tried.

  • You know what's coming?

  • Makeup showed you what he's supposed to say.

  • You're talking about solid.

  • What?

  • He said that the Jets introductory press conference, this press conference was kind of embarrassing.

  • Now I will tell you that again.

  • I'm not rooting against him.

  • I'm not rooting against him, and I respect the fact that, you know, he's a big dude, clearly getting each other people's faces.

  • He ain't gonna be scared to do all of that.

  • But that doesn't amount to anything.

  • You got a lot of cats in the NFL that come up in there and they hold dudes accountable.

  • And they were about making sure that you go all out.

  • You know what?

  • You give it all you've got that does not make for a successful.

  • You gotta actually know what the hell you doing.

  • And what's the resume that he has that tells you that he knows what he's doing?

  • Toe warrant being ahead.

  • Cuts concerning their chasm.

  • A.

  • There is no resume.

  • Good luck.
