Lions have not laid down the gloves
Give the Lions this much, they have not given up. And they are not a happy bunch especially after the devastating loss on Sunday at Buffalo.
“You’ve got to be upset and be mad and be willing to do something about it. When we lose around here people are (ticked) off for a few days and that’s a good thing. And that’s a thing that hasn’t happened in the past here,’’ center Dominic Raiola said.
The 2-7 Lions have seven games remaining starting on Sunday at Dallas. The fact they’re still fighting says something for their character and that the coaching staff is forging them in the right direction.
“It still can be fixed. I’m not a quitter. I don’t think anybody in this locker room is a quitter, and I think a lot of people’s futures depends on what happens here in the next seven games,’’ Raiola said. “I don’t see anybody letting down.’’
