No emotions for Marinelli

ALLEN PARK — Former Lions coach Rod Marinelli, who is now defensive line coach and assistant coach for the Chicago Bears, told the Chicago Sun-Times he doesn’t see any significance in playing his former team.

“I focus on my opponent. I don’t even acknowledge them. I just work on what we do, each and every week. I know it sounds cliche. I’m not a cliche guy. I’m just telling the truth. No one here wants to believe it. That’s how I live,’’ Marinelli told the Sun-Times. “I’m really good at that. I’m very disciplined because that would be cheating my guys. When I’m in this office, I have to help them get better. I have to add value.’’

Marinelli was fired after the Lions finished 0-16 last season.
