Veteran Wide Receiver Questions Detroit’s Championship Chances
In a recent episode of a podcast, veteran wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald expressed doubts about the playoff potential of the Detroit Lions. Fitzgerald, who has played in the NFL since 2004, stated that it is difficult for him to take the Lions seriously due to their lack of division championships since 1993.
Fitzgerald acknowledged that the Lions have been performing well, but he still finds it challenging to get excited about their playoff prospects. He mentioned a much-anticipated matchup against the Dallas Cowboys as a crucial test for the Lions before heading into the playoffs.
Lions’ Transformation Under New Leadership
Fitzgerald acknowledged that the Lions have changed significantly over the years, crediting their head coach for positively influencing the team’s trajectory since taking over. He emphasized the importance of finishing the regular season strongly and building momentum in the final two weeks.
Coach Campbell’s Perspective
Lions’ head coach, Dan Campbell, echoed Fitzgerald’s sentiments about the upcoming matchup against the Cowboys. Campbell emphasized the team’s goals of securing the two seed and acknowledged the challenge posed by playing in Dallas, where the Cowboys have a formidable home record.
Campbell expressed his eagerness to play a strong opponent on the road and mentioned the significance of playing for former Cowboys head coach, Jimmy Johnson. He expressed his desire to make Johnson proud and added that the team has performed well on the road in previous games.
The Lions face a crucial game against the Cowboys in their pursuit of playoff success. While Fitzgerald remains skeptical, the Lions and their coaching staff are determined to prove their doubters wrong and secure a favorable seed for the postseason.
