When you look at the Detroit Lions 2021 record in a vacuum, it's easy to come to the conclusion that it has been a disaster of a season.
But when you look deeper, you will quickly realize that what Lions head coach Dan Campbell and the Lions coaching staff have done this season has been pretty darn amazing.
On Friday, Campbell spoke to reporters and he gave the perfect analogy for what the Lions are trying to build.
“We're in the Arctic Ocean but we're headed to the Caribbean,” Campbell said.
Get your swimsuits ready, Lions' fans!
Great line by Dan Campbell: "We're in the Arctic Ocean but we're headed to the Caribbean." He said anything worth having success at takes hard work and this year will make things a lot sweeter down the road.
