The Detroit Lions were soundly defeated by the Seattle Seahawks, 51-29 in Week 17. The Seahawks played to the very end, seemingly running up the score by leaving their starters in on a long drive to the Lions' one-yard line with the game already in hand. Lions head coach Dan Campbell was asked about if he had a problem with Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll seemingly pouring it on at the end. Campbell kept it real with a great answer.

“No. I mean look, the way I look at that is, ‘Well, if you don’t like it, you better stop it.’ Hey man, kudos. To be honest with you, if they would have ran it in at the end, I wouldn’t have had a problem with that either. It’s up to us to stop them. There are 60 minutes on that game clock, so if you’ve got a problem, then why don’t you stop it? Otherwise, they’ll just keep piling it on. So, no, I don’t have any problem with that.”

Lions head coach Dan Campbell is absolutely right. The Seahawks decided to do what they did, and the Lions had no choice but to respond to it.

As Campbell so eloquently put it, if the Lions didn't like it, then the only thing to do would be to stop the Seahawks.

Instead of complaining about the Seahawks pouring on the points, Campbell used it as a teaching moment for his team, imploring them to always play for 60 minutes.

That's the kind of culture the Lions so desperately need after years and years of losing.
