Coach Dan Campbell

Detroit Lions players give Coach Dan Campbell an A+ but give the team ownership a B-, according to a survey conducted by the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA).

The results are as follows:

The Detroit Lions ranked 13th overall in our player survey, with a notable mention of head coach Dan Campbell’s high grade. The players clearly enjoy working for him, with respondents calling out his willingness to listen to their locker room. The Lions hired a new training staff this offseason, and the players noted in the responses that they could feel the improvement at the workplace and received significantly more individualized care this season compared to last season.

The food program is another area that players noted improvement from last year, with players noting that the food tastes better and fresher. Despite the improvements, players responded that they still hope to see another jump going into next year, as food service remains the number one issue players would like to see upgraded.
