Hard Knocks premieres next Tuesday at 10:00 PM.  I am actually pretty excited for this given DC's personality and seeing some in depth stuff about how they work as a staff and some stories about the players.  Always a good watch and for the first time its our team and I am actually excited.  I always thought we would be picked with Patricia and I didnt want that as it would show how bad our staff was but hoping it brings some positive light to DC.

I'm really looking forward to this. Just the personalities of guys like Campbell, Jamaal and others should make it entertaining alone.

Yo man Dan Campbell is so authentic it’s hilarious 😂

he’s exactly who I thought he would be as a coach lol 😭 that man did 40 up down and is damn near about to cry week 1 because he just loves the game so damn much! 😂 

 

Super glad you guys got Hard Knocks this season you definitely were a great choice.

Full disclosure, I'm a lifelong Packers fan, born in Appleton. I've lived in MIchigan most of my life hating the Lions. I must say, I find myself rooting for this coach and this team a lot more than I ever thought I would. The city deserves a winning football team and I think Campbell might be the guy to bring them back to relevance. 

I'll be rooting for the Lions this year, in 15 of the 17 games they play.

Best of luck this season, I see second place a very realistic goal this year. 8-9 wins are attainable, but you still need a QB.

I really like this whole coaching staff.  DC is fantastic, and his knowledge of the game shouldn't be ignored or discounted because of his personality.  He has brought in good support staff and they seem to have a similar attitude which is what we needed.  The organizational changes that started last year are showing up IMO.  I still think we lack some talent to be a good team but part of being a good team is finding cheap talent and developing it.  We saw a lot of that last year with the development of ARSB, Jacobs and Parker and moving players around to fit their skill sets.  I am hoping to see more of that this year as well as seeing the guys that are supposed to be stars (Sewell, Hutch, Hock, Williams, etc) turn into stars.  This definitely got my hyped for the season and it has been a few years since I have felt that way.  Can't wait until next Tuesday.

Not going to lie, I might have rewatched it again this morning. I'm so pumped.

I think Lions fans have seen the culture change since last season but now others can start to see it. Kudos to Sheila for really coming in in the 2020 season and cleaning house. Then you go out and sign DC and Holmes (she got ALOT of criticism for hiring Campbell over others). She really broke the mold that the Lions were retreading every year. 

This team needs talent. There is no doubt. But I like how they are building. Our OL is top 5 in the league. The remake of our receivers in just under two years is remarkable. We've added some playmakers on the DL. If coach Pleasant can build a strong secondary, this team can go places, quickly. 

Over 80 years of playing experience on the coaching staff. That is remarkable. That resonated with the players. 

 So excited right now. I have hope every season, but this team just feels different.
