Rod Woods says fans are ‘ponying up’ to buy tickets

“It’s interesting finishing 9-8 but winning eight of the last 10 is different than finishing 9-8 but losing the last five and missing out on the playoffs,” Wood said to the Detroit Free Press. “It’s the same record, but the momentum going into the offseason is very different the way we finished, especially beating Green Bay on Sunday Night Football and preventing them from going to the playoffs, and then all the things that we already talked about with draft picks and free agency. I think the optimism is they’re ponying up money to buy tickets, too.”
