Dan Campbell has epic reply to question about feeling ‘pressure'

When asked if he feels any additional pressure because of the season tickets being sold out, Campbell had the following response:

“I don't feel weight. I feel wind underneath my freakin' wings,” he said. “Truthfully.”

Campbell says the preseason hype uplifts him “absolutely.”

“I love this. This is outstanding,” Campbell said. “I love our fans, and they feel it like we feel it. No, this is not a burden. This is not pressure. This is not weight. This gives me inspiration, is what it does for me and our guys.”

Campbell Feels The Support

Campbell's response clearly shows that he and his players can feel the love and support of Lions' fans. By buying up all of the season tickets, Lions' fans are showing just how excited they are for the upcoming season.
