In case you have not been paying attention, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell and GM Brad Holmes have done an outstanding job turning around what was a toxic culture in Allen Park. Players are begging for the Lions to re-sign them, and other players, such as Tennessee Titans QB Joshua Dobbs, have nothing but good things to say about Campbell and the Lions organization.
What did Joshua Dobbs say about Dan Campbell and the Detroit Lions?
During a recent episode of the “Bussin’ with the Boys” podcast, Dobbs was asked to compare Titans head coach Mike Vrabel and Lions head coach Dan Campbell. As you are about to see, Dobbs was clearly impressed with Campbell and the Lions during his short stint with the team.
“I would say they’re both up there because they played,” Dobbs said. “They get it. The ebbs and flows of a season, the emotions of it. As players—I came in for practice on Wednesday late in the season—they just get it. They walk in the room and just get it. He was cool. The culture up there was awesome. Their culture up there was awesome. I was really impressed.”
“I was there the night before the (Vikings) game, and you could just feel the vibe in the building,” Dobbs said. “Just everyone around there, they’re just all focused on the right things. They have a ton of coaches that are players on their whole staff. They just get it. The vibe is really good up there. I enjoyed it.”

Though Dobbs was only with the Lions for a very short period of time, it was long enough for him to realize exactly what is going on in Allen Park.
Campbell and Holmes have successfully changed the culture in the Lions organization, and you can bet that free agents will continue to want to come to Detroit.
