Just after the conclusion of the 2021 season, Kennedy told reporters that he believed the Lions are trending in the right direction.
I think we've been trending in the right directions the last few weeks,” he said. “That's what the coaches have been saying, just get better. We might not be playing for a playoff spot or anything like that, but how good can we get, and can we keep getting better?”
