Dan Campbell says ‘slipping is not an excuse’ vs. Packers

    This coming Sunday, Dan Campbell and his Detroit Lions could have a golden opportunity when they head into Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. A week ago, the Minnesota Vikings tried their luck in Lambeau and it did not turn out well, as their players were slipping all over the field. Campbell vows that slipping will not be an excuse for the Lions because they will be prepared.

    What did Dan Campbell say about slipping not being an excuse vs. Packers?

    On Friday, Campbell spoke to the media and he said he is well aware of what happened to the players on the Vikings, and that his team would be wearing the proper cleats for the conditions at Lambeau Field.

    “Oh, yeah,” Campbell replied. “Yeah, oh, yes. That’s been a big deal. So, I started the week with that. Put up a bunch of clips of players slipping at Lambeau (field), and that’s one of our keys to victory: wearing the proper shoes. And our guys know it, they’re on it—shoot, they’ve worn them the last two days, what they’re going to wear out there (at Lambeau), they’ve worn them on our (practice) field. So, it’s been good and we’ve got a pretty good work out there. The field has been a little moist here, it’ll be moist again today from some of the drizzle we’ve gotten, so really, we’ve got perfect conditions. The only thing is, it’s not quite as cold as it’ll be there, but it’s not like it’s not cold here (too). So, yeah, shoes are big. Slipping is not an excuse this week.”

    If the Seattle Seahawks lose to the Los Angeles Rams earlier in the day, the Lions would be able to clinch a playoff spot with a win over the Packers. But, if the Seahawks beat the Rams, the Lions would be eliminated from playoff contention before the game even starts.
