VIDEO: Dan Campbell gives fiery speech to Ford Field crowd

Campbell is on fire with the mic in his hand.

Dan Campbell may as well be a wrestler, because he cuts one hell of a promo. Just like he did at the beginning of training camp, the Detroit Lions head coach addressed the fans during Saturday’s scrimmage at Ford Field, and it really got the juices going. Here’s the entire speech transcribed:

“Here’s my message to fans, it’s this. I want you to envision right now that we’re in the backyard, because Ford Field is our backyard. And we’ve got our firepit in the backyard. And so, we’ve got a beer, we’ve got our hot dogs, we’ve got our wine. Kids got the marshmallows ready to go.

“Let me tell you something, we’re going to bring the firewood and we’re going to light the flame. And you guys know at some point late in the night and you really want to see the show and see how high we can get this thing to burn. You’ll douse it in gasoline and that’s what we need from you.”
