Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell didn’t mince words after the Patriots hammered his team Sunday.
Despite the Patriots rolling with backup quarterback Bailey Zappe under center, the Lions somehow managed to lose 29-0.
After the game, Campbell made it clear it’s the worst football he’s seen all season.
“It was not good. It was the worst of the season overall as a team. That falls on me, and you can’t play that way unless your head coach doesn’t have them ready. So, that’s 100% on me,” Campbell told the press following the embarrassing loss.
Dan Campbell and the Detroit Lions are struggling.
Say whatever you want about Dan Campbell, but you can’t say the head coach of the Detroit Lions isn’t honest.
The team looked abysmal Sunday against the Patriots. The Lions gave up 29 points to a team starting a backup rookie quarterback.
I don’t care how good Bailey Zappe might be, losing 29-0 to a team starting a backup QB is completely unacceptable.
The Lions finished with just 312 total yards, only 101 yards on the ground and Jared Goff threw for 229 yards on 19-35 passing with an interception.
There wasn’t a single thing from the game that was positive. That’s the reality of the situation, and Campbell knows it.
Now, the Lions are 1-4, and it seems like the team is on the brink of falling apart. The Lions drop a few more games in the coming weeks, and the season will be over before it really even gets started.
