Dan Campbell needs a hug. The man gives everything to a team that continues to be beaten down and laughed at by the football world. The Detroit Lions have suffered enough.
They revamped the entire game plan during the offseason by putting a new general manager, Brad Holmes, and head coach, Dan Campbell, in charge of building a successful franchise. The duo laid out the blueprints and stated to the media how things were looking up in Detroit. A few months later, the view remains the same.
The Lions are winless with a struggling quarterback and a swiss cheese defense. The only difference has been the head coach shed a few tears on the podium, showing his passion for the organization. Finally, a win may be around the corner.
On Friday, the Cleveland Browns released Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. hits waivers before being an unrestricted free agent. Many teams could benefit from adding this superstar pass catcher, including this one.
The Detroit Lions need to put a claim on Odell Beckham Jr.
Where do the Lions rank in the order of waivers?
The only thing stopping the Lions from snatching the unwanted star would be their spot in the waiver wire.
WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT? Prayers have been answered! The Lions do not have a single team to worry about stealing Beckham Jr. from them.
It sounds too good to be accurate, but it is. The Lions’ offense has been atrocious in the first half of the season. Jared Goff struggles weekly with the “Bad News Bears” cast of characters Holmes signed in the offseason. He signed Trinity Benson in hopes of him being a diamond in the rough, more like a needle in a haystack.
Beckham Jr. gives the team a chance to find that elusive first win. Goff spent his career depending on Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, and Todd Gurley. Their production led them to a Super Bowl. Kalif Raymond is not the answer.
Beckham Jr.’s stats speak for themself. He became the fastest player to catch 200 passes and gain 4,000 receiving yards. In addition, he can line up against 99% of defensive backs in the league; what can you say about the wide receiver on the depth chart?
It’s time to reverse the curse. The universe served Thanksgiving early to Lions fans with their first spot on the waiver wire. Pay the man whatever he wants, as long as he steps on the field every Sunday. The fans deserve success. Give them that success.
