Matt Patricia says team battles ‘Here we go again’ mentality in Detroit

After blowing double-digit leads to both the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers, the Detroit Lions sat at 0-2 heading into their Week 3 matchup, on the road, against the undefeated Arizona Cardinals.

Lions’ fans and both the local media were 100% focused on ‘Here we go again’ and it was fair to do so as the Lions have historically found ways to ruin our Sundays. But on this particular Sunday, the Lions found a way to win what many, including RB Adrian Peterson, called a ‘must-win’ game.

Following the game, Lions head coach Matt Patricia spoke to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated and he admitted that the ‘Here we go again’ mentality is something he and the team battle in Detroit.

“In Detroit, that’s something that we deal with, that we battle, that sort of, ‘Here we go again’ mentality,” Patricia said to me, from the team hotel postgame. “We talked about it this week. … What I said is we’ve got to stay in the moment. We can’t make the moment bigger than it is. Because if you do that, then it’s almost like it becomes too much for you to handle. It becomes bigger than what it actually is. And all it actually is, is the next play.

“That’s all it is. We’ve just got to do a great job on that play, we’ve got to stay in the moment and do a great job of doing our job on that play and not tying in everything else to it.”
