Word on Thursday was that some current Lions players would take part in a Friday march protesting police brutality organized by former Lions running back Joique Bell in Belle Isle, Michigan and they got company from their head coach.

Pictures from the event shared by Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press show Matt Patricia is there along with several players, including kick returner Jamal Agnew and linebacker Christian Jones.

Patricia said this week that the team has had “enlightening” meetings with players sharing their experiences this week and said that he wants to turn those conversations into making changes.

“And listening to some thoughts and ideas, I think that’s when you gotta make sure you follow through,” Patricia said, via Albert Breer of SI.com. “You gotta try. And they’re not all gonna work. But if a couple of them work, and you make change, you connect. . . . We gotta try, and we gotta stick with it and we gotta persevere through that. And we talk a lot about leadership and the team driving that leadership. And I think that’s important for us to make sure that it’s an everyday thing.”

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone took part in a team-organized march in Jacksonville on Friday and the Broncos have planned a march for Saturday in Denver.

  1. Since Patricia isn’t one of those sjw or woke-capital type of people it seems that his critics can’t come up with a political argument against him so they resort to personal insults like calling him fat. Real telling.

  2. Matty P is learning. He came to Detroit guns blazing like he was Belichek 2.0. He lost favor with a lot of players as everyone knows, and was told to have the hardest camps and practices in the league. Now in year 3 he’s trying to mix that strong Patriots work hard ethic but also adding the players coach element into it. I like our team on paper but with so many new faces and high draft picks I hope covid isn’t going to mess up these new pieces with our old pieces. I think we have the second most money to spend in the league, and I’m thinking they would like to see who is available to sign after cuts start coming but we always have a Jadeveon Clowney move we could make, which to me is the only thing that needs improvement is D-Line. We have players like Hand and that Clemson RE Bryant who didn’t play last year and drafted Okwara so it’s not terrible thats why I would like one more big signing on the edge.

  3. Patricia is just doing his typical NFL behaviors of going through the motions. He’s expert at it after riding the coattails of Belichick and Brady for years. He will be fired by December after another poor season of struggling to help Stafford carry the team before he gets his back injury agro’ed again.
