As the Detroit Lions piled up the losses in 2019, many fans begged for owner Martha Ford to fire GM Bob Quinn and head coach, Matt Patricia.
Instead, Ford decided to give the duo another season with the expectation that they contend for a playoff spot in 2020.
But Patricia wants more than to just contend for the playoffs. He wants to win and to give Lions fans what they deserve.
On Thursday, Patricia joined Peter Schrager on the NFL Network’s Good Morning Football and he was asked if he had a message for Lions fans regarding the 2020 season.
Patricia began by commenting on what Ford Field felt like during a recent Garth Brooks concert that he attended.
“The energy in that building, as soon as I walked in that place, right away, I’m like, ‘Man, we gotta win. We gotta get this going for the fans. They gotta feel this energy, this excitement,'” he said. “That’s really all they want.
“I just want to go out and win. I want to try to build a team the right way where we can do that, week in and week out, and just give the fans what they deserve.”
One thing is for sure, Patricia is saying all of the right things. Hopefully, he can accomplish what many Lions coaches have failed to do, win a Super Bowl and bring some pride to the city.
