The Detroit Lions are arguably, or not-so arguably, the worst team in the NFL right now, with a 1-6 record. Fans are already wondering if head coach Dan Campbell should, and will, get the boot early, following this season.
So, what does Detroit Lions principal owner Sheila Ford Hamp have to say about it?
Ford Hamp recently opened up about Campbell and general manager Brad Holmes. She said fans had to be patient and that she felt light she had good people in leadership, despite the team’s dismal. “We’ve got 11 more games to go, so I just don’t want to ruin it, push the panic button and give up the ship because I think we’ve got the right people in place to pull this off, and I truly believe that,” she said, via ESPN’s Eric Woodyard. “And I wouldn’t say that if I didn’t believe it.”
She added that she thinks Campbell and Holmes’ jobs are very challenging. The two men were given the responsibility of managing a “huge teardown and then turnaround,” she said. Last season was Campbell’s first year. They finished 3-13-1, with one of the worst records at the NFL. that said, “I think we really are making progress. You’ve seen it,” Ford Hamp said.
