Dan Campbell Proving He Is Part of Lions’ Problem

Read more on how Dan Campbell is part of the Detroit Lions’ problem.


In this story:



Dan Campbell has 22 games under his belt now as Lions head coach, and has only won four of them.


And, as the weeks have gone by and the losses have piled up, he has continued to prove that his decision-making clearly isn’t where it should be as an NFL head coach.


It’s not even close to where it should be, either.


Sunday was just the most recent example of it, as he was outcoached by Bill Belichick in the Lions’ 29-0 loss to the New England Patriots.


Prior to the Week 5 tilt, Detroit’s offense had been buzzing, and was averaging a league-best 35 points a game, on the heels of Jared Goff playing his best football as a member of the Lions.


Goff, however, didn’t have his “A” game on Sunday. He played his worst game of the season, throwing for zero touchdowns for the first time this year. He also recorded a season-low 62.7 passer rating.


Collectively, Detroit delivered its worst performance of the campaign. Campbell called it “rock bottom” for the Lions.


Goff didn’t totally disagree, when asked after the game about Campbell’s choice of words to describe the loss.


“Maybe so,” Goff said. “Yeah, typically, that’s kind of — before you can get better, things have to get worse sometimes. And today, it certainly did. And, you know, our — I think our defense actually played, you know, better and gave, was giving us a chance for some plays there on offense. And, we didn’t finish drives. We didn’t convert on third/fourth down. We didn’t finish with the ball in the end zone. You know, we didn’t score any points. So, it’s as bad as it can get offensively, for sure. And, you know, I think our defense may have improved a little bit, though.”


As much as it was a lackluster performance from the veteran signal-caller, Campbell, with his subpar decision-making, didn’t help his quarterback’s case.


As the result of several highly questionable decisions, the second-year Detroit head coach, time and time again, failed to put his team in position to succeed. This was especially the case on fourth down.
