Detroit Lions Safety Bennie Blades interviewed by Woodward Sports 2021

Kory Woods at Woodward Sports did an interview with Bennie Blades. A Detroit Lions safety in the 80s and 90s over 2 coaching regimes. They discuss the state of the game today, Dan Campbell, Aaron Glenn, Wayne Fontes, and the physicality of the game.

I’m like, no matter what, I’m going to bleed Honolulu blue and silver. And now I know how the real people who live in Detroit die for Detroit for years upon years, upon years, how they feel. Because I live in South Florida, and I’m still representing the Detroit Lions. People was like, "You better find you another team." I can’t. So I ride around; I wish I could take a picture of it. I have a Detroit Lions cap right above my steering wheel. And I got a Detroit Lions pendant on the right side of my mirror. So people can know that I’m a Detroit Lions fan. I want them to win in the worst way.
