For the most part, Detroit Lions fans seem to be very excited about new head coach Dan Campbell and the energy and passion he clearly has for the game of football.
But despite the excitement in Lions Nation, plenty of national media members and fans around the league have taken every opportunity to bash Campbell for some of his antics, beginning with his “biting kneecaps” quote from his introductory press conference.
But one person who sees past that comment and believes Campbell is trying to set the right tone in the Lions locker room is quite possibly the best TE in football, Greg Kittle.
During a recent interview, Kittle says he wishes the national media would look deeper into what Campbell had been saying rather than going after the low-hanging fruit.
We all laughed at @Lions coach Dan Campbell's introductory press conference… but @gkittle46 saw some brilliance beyond the kneecap-biting, as the @49ers tight end explained to @fatnatsilver and me in Ep. 54 of the Pass It Down podcast… pic.twitter.com/eRJCgxiHJI
