2 Detroit Lions players react to Dan Campbell snub

After leading the Detroit Lions to a 3-13-1 record in 2021, and then following that up with a 1-6 record to start the 2022 regular season, head coach Dan Campbell, according to a decent amount of people, was on the hot seat. In fact, local radio stations and some other Lions’ blogs questioned on almost a daily basis whether or not the team should fire Campbell immediately. But, as we know, Campbell stayed the course and Detroit won eight of its final ten games to finish with a 9-8 record.

2 Lions’ players react to Dan Campbell news

On Wednesday, the NFL Coach of the Year finalists were announced, and as you have probably heard by now, Campbell was not included on the list.

Instead, the following coaches made the cut:

  • Giants HC Brian Daboll
  • 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan
  • Eagles HC Nick Sirianni
  • Bills HC Sean McDermott
  • Jaguars HC Doug Pederson

Following that news, Jason Cabinda and Alim McNeil took to Twitter to question why Campbell is not one of the five finalists for the 2022 NFL Coach of the Year award.

Why it Matters

Knowing Dan Campbell, he probably could not care less about being named as a finalist for an individual award, especially after a season that resulted in his team not making the NFL Playoffs.

Cabinda and McNeill reacting the way they did to the news that Campbell is not a finalist shows exactly how much players want to play for him, and how much they respect him as their head coach.

For those of you who are upset about Campbell not being named a finalist, take a deep breath. It is just a matter of time before he is included as a finalist, and it will come following a season where the Lions take care of business and make the NFL Playoffs.
