Lions camp preview

7/19/2006 - Detroit Lions

Three Burning Questions
How will the Lions respond to Rod Marinelli's "tough love" approach?
Marinelli's former players swear by him, and that is one of the reasons he got this job. He is a taskmaster, but he is fair and will weed out the guys who don't want to work. He has been quoted as saying that he wants a lot of "gym rats," guys who love to be around the game, and that's what he will get. This will not be a country club atmosphere. The coaches will preach technique and hustle, and it will be a brutal training camp with a lot of hitting. There will be some grumbling, but it won't matter. Right now the only voice that counts is Marinelli's.
