Lions Head Coach Jim Caldwell…
On Owner and Chairman of the Board Martha Firestone Ford: “She’s always been – Mrs. Ford’s always been visible. She attends our training camp practices. Certainly, we see her a couple of times a week, not just once, but, obviously, before the game and her presence is something that, I think, the guys look forward to after games, etc. She’s vibrant, she’s enthusiastic and she wants to win and I think those are the things that she certainly brought that to bear just in terms of her willingness to do whatever she thinks it takes to get that done.”
On overcoming a last-second loss: “I don’t think you guard against it. I think you talk about what you need to get done and anticipate your guys can get focused and move forward. I think they’ve shown the ability to do that time and time again, whether it was after a win against Green Bay where they came out and made some plays. A missed field goal at the end, a pretty dramatic situation, they were able to come back and play well the next week. I think our guys have shown good resilience. The big thing is, that’s kind of a measure of the team, too, is growth and development. Whether they show resilience after disappointment, and I think our guys have done that.”
