Dan Campbell has certainly done some things differently since becoming head coach of the Detroit Lions, and Monday offered another example of that.

The Lions practiced Monday without any input from the coaching staff at all. The practice was entirely player-run, and the only involvement from coaches was Campbell quietly observing. The rest of the coaching staff did not even attend.

Campbell certainly seems to be a strong motivational figure and is good at getting a laugh as well. Whether this actually helps or not, there’s a decent chance that it earns him some extra points from his players. That can be meaningful.
