The Heart of a Lion

Written by cody mccloud

You can hear a Lions roar from 5 miles away! At least that is the case for Lions back up running back Jamaal WIlliams. WIlliams gave a very passionate speech after practice this afternoon. Williams has only been with the Detroit Lions starting his 2 year, but has shown he is already one of the locker rooms vocal leaders. Williams spent the first 4 years of his career were spent with the Green Bay packers. Williams has amassed 2,582 rushing yard on 653 rushes and racked up a total 13 touchdowns in his career with more to come.

Have you heard an inspiration heart filled speech in sports movies before, that make you want to run through a wall for the person speaking? I have and this speech is one of those! Williams speech comes during a hard knocks episode this season, Williams spoke in the huddle after practice today and gave this passionate speech …….

“Today is the minimum of effort. Do not give up. Do not feel like you tired. When you tired, think of last year and think of that (expletive) record. Every time I get tired or I think I can’t go no more, I think of that (expletive) record! Last year wasn’t it. That ain’t us. We can make it. Have some heart. I get emotional about this. I’m about to cry ’cause I care about y’all! Do your best. Let’s go! Lions on three.”

This speech comes in the offseason after yet another abmissmal Lions season. i know for the longest time the Lions were the laughing stock of the NFL. i mean at one point in time they went 0-16. Detroit fans soon would catch a break in 2007, when they drafted Hall of famer Calvin Johnson. The Lions would go on the 2 years later and draft Matthem Stafford, whom would lead them to the playoffs 3 different times (2011,2014,2016). Unfortunately for Lions fans nothing became of these appearnces. Sadly the Lions would not have a .500 record since 2017, with the previous 2021 season going 3-11-1. Williams speech should get the hope and fight back into every LIons fan everywhere. The Lions roster has the weapons to be able to produce a .500 season. I believe this season will be different and every Lions fan should look forward to watching every game.
