Former Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner compares Matt Patricia to Jim Caldwell

Here we go again. Another Detroit Lions player who was cut by Matt Patricia is commenting on current Lions head coach, Matt Patricia.

This time it is former Lions RB Zach Zenner, who joined ESPN’s Michael Rothstein and spoke about the difference between former Lions HC Jim Caldwell and Patricia.

As you will hear in the clip below, Zenner explains how Caldwell’s leadership style was based on mutual respect between himself and his players, while Patricia’s leadership style is based on his players showing respect to him.

Take a listen.

Zenner is a classy individual, as you could hear in the interview but his thoughts are certainly interesting.
