Lions’ RB Kerryon Johnson cannot believe what he just said about Matt Patricia, can he?

When it comes to winning football games when his team has a double-digit lead, Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia leaves much to be desired.

In fact, by blowing a double-digit lead on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, the Lions became the first team in NFL history to blow a double-digit lead in four-straight games.

Following the Lions 42-21 loss to the Packers, a plethora of Lions fans hopped on social media to blast Patricia, and our own W.G. Brady begged Lions owner Sheila Ford Hamp to fire Patricia and GM Bob Quinn immediately, saying they should not even be allowed on the team plane back to Detroit.

But Lions players are still claiming they support their head coach. Matthew Stafford said he has confidence in Patricia and running back Kerryon Johnson gave a rave review of his coach.

From The Detroit News:

“Uh, is 200% an option?” running back Kerryon Johnson said. “Yeah, that’s like the confidence I have in him. As hard as I work, as hard as my teammates work, they work the same. I mean, Matt Patricia stays up countless hours, (offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell) stays up countless hours, all of our coaches stay up countless hours focusing on how we can win, how we can put ourselves in the best position to win, so I know it’s not from a lack of trying. It just doesn’t happen.

“At the end of the day, they can only do so much,” Johnson continued. “At the end of the day, we have to go out and perform. It’s a 50-50 ballgame here. They put us in positions to make plays, we have to go out and make those plays. I have to do more to make more, and we’re in this thing together. It’s not one-on-one, it’s not anything like that. We have to go out and fulfill what they want to do, and at the end of the day, that’s on us to do.

Nation, do you think Kerryon Johnson actually believes what just came out of his mouth?

Let us know what you think!
