Here is another thing that bothered me about the Lions exhibition loss to the St. Louis Rams.
After the Game Coach Steve Mariucci addressed the team and told them how much work they had to do. He scolded and demanded they do better.
When he left the room players undressed, showered and went home. No veteran players stood up and addressed the team. No one said boo to assembled teammates.
That is problematic. Where was Dre'' Bly or Damien Woody?
Football is a sport of passion and emotion. It is a sport where leaders emerge and make demands of teammates.
No Lion player did. And that bothers me.
I question if there is a leader in that dressing room.
Even back up quarterback Jeff Garcia was surprised. He called out teammates to step up and lead.
They didn't. This is another sign to me that the Lions are just playing football. They are not playing with a purpose yet.
