Detroit Lions OC Anthony Lynn reacts to Dan Campbell taking over play-calling duties

Prior to Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell vowed to be more involved with the offense.

Well, Campbell was certainly more involved as he actually made the decision to take over the play-calling duties from offensive coordinator, Anthony Lynn.

On Thursday, Lynn spoke to the media, and not surprisingly, he was asked about Campbell’s decision.

“I don’t see it as a demotion,” Lynn said. “I’ve been in Dan’s shoes and if I was 0-8, hell, and I need to spark my team being an offensive guy, I probably would have done the same thing, to be honest with you, and I have.

“I’d be a hypocrite if I didn’t agree with what he did,” Lynn said. “I thought it worked well. I thought we worked well together last week. He asked me my opinion on certain things and he’d make those calls. But he wanted to talk to the quarterback. That was the main thing. He wanted to communicate with the quarterback and only one person can do that, so he’s got the head set.”

Lynn also weighed in on how he thinks Campbell did with his first time calling plays.

“Dan knows football,” Lynn said about Campbell’s first game calling plays. “Dan is sharp is hell. He’s been in New Orleans with a high-powered offense. He brings a lot of good ideas to the table throughout the week when we’re game planning. I thought he called the game last week that gave us the best chance to win the game. We had to run the ball 40 times in those conditions and I don’t have any problem with that.”

Nation, do you look at this as a demotion for Lynn?
