Dan Campbell is Awful


Recommended Posts

Earlier in the season, Dan Campbell played not to lose against the Vikings and lost.  He did the same thing today.  I thought Todd Bowles was terrible but this guy is worse.  Fortune favors the brave, Dan.  He has no business calling plays.  If his team didn't play hard, I would relieve him of his head coaching duties right now.  Today's game shows you why the Lions are at the very bottom of the NFL toilet bowl year in and year out.  Even worse than the Jets.  I actually feel sorry for their fans.

Dan Campbells point differential is -110 with 3 blowouts through 10 losses.

Robert Salehs point differential is -142 with 5 blowouts through 9 losses. 

So what you're saying is...

If the Jets played the Lions this season the Lions would win by 10 points. Home or away.

I genuinely feel bad for lions fans. One of the few fanbases that I think has had it even worse than us 

They have undoubtedly had it worse than us.  Pretty sure they've only won 1 playoff game in the last 50 years.  At least we've gone to AFC CGs and won a Superbowl (albeit over 50 years ago).  They're a "never was" type team. 

Having said that, though, they've been in a lot of games. They could've beaten the Ravens had it not been for the longest FG in NFL history in the final seconds of the game.  They lost by 2 to the Vikings, 3 to the Browns and 2 to the Bears.  They also tied the Steelers.  That's 5 potential wins where they've instead gone 0-4-1.  As painful as this must be for them, I get the feeling they're not as bad as they might seem.  We, on the other hand, are getting blown out week after week.  They lost 34-11 to the Bengals and 44-6 to the Eagles.   We've been blown out 5 times.

And 90% of fans hate the HC who brought us to 2 AFCCs. We have exactly the Jets team we deserve.

Are you saying he’s worse than Saleh?
Because his team has fought hard in a lot of their games, and lost a lot of close ones.
We’ve gotten blown out more often than not, and at times looked like a team that’s quit. We’re about to finish bottom two in the league for the second year in a row. Don’t worry about the Lions, lol.

Dan Campbell was a joke when he was hired and he remains one. So over his head it's silly. Literally dumbest hire ever.

Where have you been the last 5 years? I’m going to guess you weren’t watching The Bowles, Gase and Rob Show?

but Saleh has 2 wins, and against 2 good teams. i have been told that the only thing that counts.

and he has Goff who right now is  alot better than our QBs. he might not be the best but Goff is too good to have zero wins. 

so yes Campbell worst than Saleh.

Saleh said during his press conference that he tries not to show emotion/anger over a players mistake and prefers to deal with it out of the spot-light (that btw is the proper way); he shows excitement when the team/player does well, he will show anger at the officials, but not at a player - behind closed doors is another story.

Thank you.
 

Too often fans act like the HC should act like he is one of them when he simply is not….

To paraphrase Parcells ….

“You Coach like you are a fan and you will soon be one of them”

Losing a nail biter every week is more painful than getting blown out, IMO

 

the Lions have this cursed aura about them that is just unmatched in the NFL

Campell >>> Saleh. Lions play with a lot more heart than the Jets.

Jets beat Titans and Bengals, who have the Lions beat?  Let’s bite some knee caps and act like a buffoon. That will win a lot of games.

Reductio ad absurdum is an admission of a flawed position

Agreed. Given that the Bills and Browns have seemingly turned things around I can't think of any fanbase who truly has it worse at the moment than the Lions.
