Motor City Dan Campbell only knows one speed, and that’s pedal to the metal.
The Detroit Lions are just one game away from reaching the Super Bowl, and the evil juggernaut known as the San Francisco 49ers is the only thing that stand in their way from a trip to Las Vegas for the “Big Game.”
A road trip out to San Francisco will be a tough test, but one that the Lions will be ready for. They’ve already won more playoff games this year (2) than they had in the past 32 years (0), and they’ll certainly be looking to add to that list of wins.
During time with the media ahead of the NFC championship, one reporter decided to question Lions head coach Dan Campbell about the emotion of his team, and whether or not they were going to tone it down ahead of the high-stakes matchup:
“The other team’s been there (in the NFC Championship) four times, this is your first time in this game. Emotionally, are you going to have to pull your team back a little bit? I can even see the energy in you from the other day…”
The reporter didn’t even get a chance to finish the thought before Dan Campbell bit the guy’s kneecaps cut the man off to answer with, ironically, a very emotional response:
“I don’t want to pull them back. I’m not pulling them back. We’re going. We’re going. They’ll adjust on the fly, but we’re going in. And they’ll be ready.”
