Detroit Lions Report Card: Dan Campbell Scores An A+

The second annual National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) report has been released. "For many years, our players brought up the idea of creating a 'Free Agency Guide' that would illuminate what the daily experience is for players and their families at each team," they stated. In 2023, they created the first version of that guide. Players were more informed about how their workplace compared to others across the NFL. According to the NFLPA, some clubs made "immediate" improvements based on the information they published. So, how did the Detroit Lions score? The Survey Gives Detroit Lions Coach An A+ Overall, the Detroit Lions ranked 13th in their player survey. Head coach Dan Campbell received an A+. This just shows that the player truly loves working with him. Regarding club owner Sheila Ford Hamp, she received a B- from the Lions players. The survey did show that the training staff during the off-season saw some improvement at the workplace. Players noted that they received significantly more individualized care this season compared to last season. Also noted in the survey is that the food program improved from last year. Despite the improvements, players responded that they "still hope to see another jump going into next year." According to the survey, food service remains the number one issue players would like to see upgraded. How Grading Works? The grading scale follows a letter grade system from highest to lowest. A+, A, and A- indicate excellent performance. B+, B, and B- indicate good performance. C+, C, and C- indicate satisfactory performance. D+, D, D-, F, and F- indicate less than satisfactory performance. They also follow a weighted scale that includes categories such as head coach, team, travel, locker room, training room, treatment of families, and club owners, among others. In the first year of the survey, they had slightly more than 1,300 responses, which is about a 60% participation rate league-wide, said the NFLPA. This year, they had 1,706 active NFL players complete the survey in full which they said is more than a 77% response rate. Check the Detroit Lions' complete report card here.
