His answer had Dan Campbell written all over it.

Campbell said on 97.1 FM The Ticket‘s Stoney & Jansen show when asked about his fourth down calls:

Here's what I would say, because I tell my family this, just wear a diaper before some of these games. I'll give them an alert and say, 'Put them on and be ready to roll.

The Lions repeatedly went for the fourth-down calls in their 41-38 win against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.


The Lions won the game after going for a 4th and 2 with 1:47 left in the game. They successfully converted the fourth and short and that helped them seal the win. They will now play the Chicago Bears in their next game on Sunday.

Campbell said.

There was a lack of communication in some areas. We weren’t really clean. We really have got to get to where even if it’s the wrong call, it’s right if we’re all on the same page. There were a couple of these things with the motions. How are we treating this motion entirely because the nature of it. There’s just a few things where, man, we need to make a call and live by the call, and not try to live in two worlds.

The Lions have a decent defense as they are ranked ninth in yards allowed per game with 310.7. However, their offense has been the star of their season so far. They have won a lot of games with their offense balling out. Sunday was no different as the Lions poured in 41 points en route to a solid victory.
