Lions coach Dan Campbell seemingly sits in a category of his own when it comes to his love and passion for football.
His enthusiasm for the game is infectious and is clearly seen when he unleashes epic locker room speeches to his players. On Sunday, after the Lions pulled off a gutsy 41-38 road victory against the Chargers, Campbell delivered another electrifying address to his players that left NFL fans energized.
The Lions’ decades-long struggles and postseason disappointments are well documented, but fans sense a new attitude under Campbell.
Campbell’s tenure in Detroit started with three wins in the 2021 season. However, in ’22, the Lions finished 9-8 and recorded their first winning season since ’17.
In Campbell’s third season, Detroit (7-2) sits atop the NFC North and is currently boasts the second-best record in the NFC behind the Eagles (8-1). Campbell is building a winning culture in Detroit, and fans are excited for what’s to come.
Check out Campbell’s epic postgame speech from Sunday.

I’m still hungry for more kneecaps, coach. https://t.co/kgXsHJGulA— Jennifer Hammond (@HammerFox2) November 13, 2023

Pump Lions victory locker room videos into my veins. Most fired up I think I can ever remember being about a pro team. Maybe the wings in the 90s/2000s, but this is football, so it feels even more fun. https://t.co/gMuf0ybO3m— Eric Stricklin (@CoachStrick64) November 13, 2023

Must watch as usual. Amon-Ra and Patterson with the two game balls. Good choices. https://t.co/dMBkBnDWMa— DLB (@DetLionBlood) November 13, 2023
Coach showed so much confidence in Riley they way they burned clock to set up the winning FG. That is how you build a winning culture.— Robot Junkyard Studios aka Jim (@RobotJunkyard72) November 13, 2023
Campbell better be a finalist for coach of the year. And if they keep this up, he better win it.
@DetroitPistons pay attention and take notes. You can feel the energy in this clip!— Evan Franklin (@evanfranklin) November 13, 2023
As a Buccaneers fan, let me just say, I love this team. Go Lions!— Joey Wright (@thejoeywright) November 13, 2023
Winning games they use to blow. Winning on the road. Overcoming bad calls. Winning after a loss & after a bye. Scoring after the other team scores. Beating good teams. This isn’t relying on a qb to bail us out or fluke wins. For the first time since 93 Lions have a good team.— Christopher Heskett (@RadBadSAHDad) November 13, 2023
