this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
OT_Lions Caldwell uses preventative discipline off field issues
I like it. They have fixed the offseason issues this year(so far). Let's hope they can fix the penalties and lack of mental discipline on the field. If they can manage to contain that this team could wind up surprising even the most optimistic of fans. The talents there this year, but can they shake off the mantra of the same ole lions. I hope they can, because being the running joke of the nfl sucks
The Lions will still find some way to screw things up and shoot themselves in the foot. Again.
Sorry, but until they prove otherwise, I can only see them as the same old Lions.
Plaxico Burress Style
Yes she did.
"From Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon’s most recent failed drug test to Ravens running back Ray Rice’s domestic violence case and ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith’s ill-advised comments about Rice’s wife, Caldwell provides what he calls “preventive medicine” for players as a reminder of how to represent themselves and the Lions away from the field."
One of the things that I have always felt to be missing from the Lions organization is the cultural underpinnings of a winning culture, one that runs smoothly from the top down to the field. You can have all the talent in the world and without ithout a common direction you'll only do so well. That's sort of why I like this move by Caldwell in showing the team as a whole and at the same time what you should avoid. It's a nice first step, one of many culturally for the team.
This guy is a breath of fresh air compared to Schwartz.
It sends the message off field behavior is critical to the team and do you really want this to be you. The Lions have had a long line of character issues. Here is hoping the fix it. Good for JC.
