Dan Campbell refuses to have any kickers on his Detroit Lions 53-man roster after cut day.
We had no earthly idea Dan Campbell was going to be bringing the XFL to the NFL in his first year leading the Detroit Lions.
Campbell has already told us to watch our kneecaps, that being a meathead is cool and there is only one way to start your day off right at Starbucks. So when it came to cut day, we had a feeling Campbell was not going to disappoint. He is deciding to go for two by cutting the two kickers on his roster. Believe me, Randy Bullock and Zane Gonzalez have to be shocked they were both cut.
Nothing makes your football team tougher than going for two every time because kicking is weak.
Here’s the kicker with Dan Campbell’s ultra-machismo Detroit Lions roster
While it is somewhat accepted to stream a kicker in fantasy football, this is the NFL. Vince McMahon is not strutting through that Ford Field door like he owns the place. Then again, we may not be truly prepared for what is in store with Campbell calling the shots in Detroit. He did assemble a great staff, so maybe he is banking on eight points every drive because of Jared Goff.
The only way this can be better is if Campbell has open tryouts every week to find a kicker off the streets of Detroit, preferably a guy who kicks it straight-on like Lou Groza or Tony Danza in that garbage man movie. The last time the Lions were consistently a good team, every kicker in football kicked in this manner. If you are the Lions, why would you not want to live in the past? It was good!
Here is the kicker with the Motor City Dan Campbell Detroit Lions: There will never be a kicker.
