    Detroit Lions’ Dan Campbell understands criticism during winless start

    Allen Park — Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell never asked for a free pass his first year at the helm, but given the state of the roster he inherited, many were content to grant him one by default. 

    But even after entering the season with the most modest of expectations, fan patience has been running a little thin with the team still winless heading into December. And criticism of Campbell has picked up even more since he took over the offensive play-calling duties, only to see the team average 13.3 points in the three games since. 

    For the most part, he’s remained insulated from that criticism. Still, there have been context clues, in the form of unsolicited messages of encouragement. And even if Campbell did know exactly what was being said about him and the team, he knows he has no viable counter to offer. 

    “That being said, it’s almost like I get the texts and I get the calls, ‘Hey, man, hang in there,'” Campbell said. “So the more that I get, the more I know there’s chatter out there. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be getting all these calls out the blue, or these texts.
