The One Problem

If you have been watching the Lions so far this season, you are well aware of the fact that their fans have been absolutely amazing. Not only are they ultra-loud at Ford Field, but they have been invading opposing stadiums. Whils speaking to reporters, Hutchinson revealed the one problem of having too many fans on the road.

“I came in with some snap count indicators,” Hutchinson said. “When you hear something, this or that, and I couldn’t hear anything when I was on defense. Like I couldn’t even hear the snap count, so it definitely changed up kind of what I was expecting going into it just cause it’s like, it’s damn near a home game, it’s half and half when we’re away right now.”

Despite the challenges Hutchinson has had due to Lions fans being too loud on the road, he absolutely appreciates them doing their thing and cheering on the team.

“It’s hard to hear any little checks or something, stuff you pick up on in the week, you can’t hear anything,” Hutchinson said. “So it makes my job a little harder, or not even hard but it just makes those tips and tricks, they go away. But it’s all worth it because you get that momentum and you get that energy that the fans bring us, that’s the most important thing.”
