What did Dan Campbell Say?

However, Campbell, during his appearance on 97.1 The Ticket, defended Sutton, emphasizing the challenging nature of his position and the importance of resilience and a short memory in the face of adversity. Campbell highlighted Sutton’s ability to bounce back, particularly referencing his significant play against the Rams, as indicative of his potential to recover and contribute effectively to the team’s defense.

“That’s that’s the nature of playing the position. And if you’re a quarterback or cornerback we talk about all the time, you gotta have a short memory, short-term memory,” Campbell told 97.1 The Ticket. “And things are going to happen. And the most important thing in those positions is to bounce back. 

“All we care about is when you go back and compete on the next one, you you fight. You wrestle. Just like he did last week against the Rams,” Campbell continued. “In a critical third down, he comes away with that play. He makes a huge play on Puka. And that’s what it’s about here. And we’ll mix the coverages, he’ll do what he does. But Cam’s going to be just fine.”
