What did Dan Campbell Say?

Following the game, Dan Campbell spoke to reporters, and he had an interesting, but 100% true statement:

“I know it stings and those guys are disappointed,” Campbell said. “I’m disappointed, the staff is, but this is good. We’ll get a little humble pie here.”

Campbell made it absolutely clear that the Seahawks earned the win over the Lions.

“Sometimes you don’t know exactly where you’re at until you’re in it. We come off a big win and you can always preach certain things, but man, this is the NFL, and these guys came in and they took that win,” Campbell said. “They earned it over there and we did the mistakes that cost us.

“I don’t want to say we weren’t ready, but we have to make those plays in the moment and not just assume it’s gonna turn into the type of game you want it to.”

Bottom Line – Lessons from Defeat

The Lions' tale for this season is far from complete, and the next gripping chapter unfolds right at the heart of Ford Field.
