Last year’s Lions hype video shows how much has changed in Detroit

·1 min read

There is a lot of excitement in Detroit about the new Lions. Fans and media are pumped over the new attitude under enthusiastic head coach Dan Campbell, thoughtful GM Brad Holmes and an overhauled roster looking to rise from the ashes of last place in the NFC North.

But a lot of very talented and well-liked Lions players are no longer in Detroit. And a video from the recent past provides a reminder of all the departures and just how much talent the Lions let go since this time a year ago.

An intrepid user at the Lions subreddit (r/detroitlions) unearthed the Lions’ official hype video from before the 2020 season via Instagram. And it’s a stark blast of all the talent the team had and is now elsewhere.

Every player featured on the video from the Lions is now gone. From Matthew Stafford to Kenny Golladay, Justin Coleman to Kerryon Johnson, they’re all playing elsewhere now.

Of course, all those talented players couldn’t ever win much together in Detroit…which is why the team has been overhauled with new players and a new kneecap-biting attitude.
