Preseason games may not count in the standings, but the Detroit Lions are trying to set the tone before the 2022 season, and that counts most of all at this point in time.
Pushing toward Friday night against the Atlanta Falcons, the team is getting ready for their dress rehearsal, and according to Jared Goff, the time is now to set the proper tone for the year.
Speaking to the media after practice on Tuesday, August 9, Goff was asked about the plan for the Lions. As he said, while the game might not be official, what happens on the field can lead to habits the rest of the way.
“The results in a preseason game obviously don’t count, but we do want to have good results,” Goff told the media. “Most of all, I think just breaking the huddle right, getting lined up, snapping the ball and getting good plays off and getting productive plays off. At the same time, just feeling good about when we’re out there with the starters.”
To sum it up, Goff wants to see the Lions be able to have a solid procedure on the field when his group sees action.
