The Detroit Lions are 0-2 after last weekend’s loss against Green Bay. Even with the tough season start, there’s one phrase new head coach Dan Campbell doesn’t want to hear: “Same old Lions.”

“Same old Lions” has been a popular phrase among disgruntled Lions fans for years- even decades. But, Campbell wants to stay positive and focus on the players’ love for the sport.

“I just tell them I don’t want to see that s***,” Campbell said to reporters after Sunday’s game. “They come in, I’m not that type of person. I’m not a negative person. I’m all about going to work. I want guy’s who are resilient, that are willing to go back to work. They love ball. They’re going to clean up their mistakes. Those are the guys I’m looking for. I’m not a sulker.”

Campbell continued, “You’re not going to get me down. And those are the types of people I want around me. I want guys who are looking for solutions. We’re going to fix our mess because we put ourselves in this mess. That’s what I’m looking for. I think we’re going to be just fine. We’re going to be upbeat. And you know what? It should sting. I hope it does sting. It stings me. And that’s okay. But that doesn’t mean you have to be negative or kick the dirt or anything else. And I don’t want those types of guys around here.”

The Lions take on the Ravens this Sunday (Sept. 27) at Ford Field.
