The Detroit Lions suffered a narrow loss in Week 3 and while people will be tempted to say that more from the team, players don’t believe that’s true.

While fans see the frustrating loss as a continuation of some of the same efforts that have dragged on for years, offensive lineman Frank Ragnow sees the opposite. He claims that despite the defeats, the Lions are as confident as ever.

Speaking to the media on Monday, September 26, Ragnow said that despite the frustration at losing the road due to the feeling in the dressing room, the Lions are still very confident.

“I think part of it is just the feeling here. There is still confidence. Obviously we went through these situations last year that can only make us better, right? We know what we can do and we know what we have to do,” he said. “It really just comes down to the details, as frustrating as we are losing week after week. It’s frustrating to come back to, but if we can just hone the details and really make the little things happen, we’ll be fine.”

As Ragnow admitted, if the Lions can focus on those little things, they’ll be much better off in the end and find a way to make some big wins. Rather than take Dan Campbell’s apology as an admission, he said he thinks he just wanted the team to understand they could be better.

“I think it’s little things, like the details, the mistakes we make, that obviously caused us to fail. I think that’s how I interpreted it,” Ragnow said of Campbell. “Like we have to learn, yes we lost, but if we learn from all those mistakes that caused us to lose, it won’t be a failure in the long run. I think that’s what he meant.”

Learning and finding a way to do the little things better will be a big focus for Lions. This is all the more true after the team had to endure some narrow defeats at the beginning of the season.

The Lions seem to always complain about little things. This time, Ragnow doesn’t seem to think they’re holding the team back, instead they’ll make them better in the end. This time he thinks it could finally be different.


Ragnow remains confident in Lion’s roster

Despite the obvious lessons to be learned, it’s clear that Ragnow hasn’t lost faith in his teammates.

As he explained, the fact that the Lions have endured so many ups and downs might only serve to make them better in the end, especially when it comes to finding a way to motivate them for a run when they overcome the hump.

“I am very confident in this group. We’ve been through a lot together. There’s all kinds of things that happen with this team and we’re never intimidated and that’s part of our head coaching. It’s kind of part of our culture so I’m really confident (in) these guys and looking forward to the week ahead.”

With that in mind, finding a way to mentally recover doesn’t seem to be a problem for the Lions. If Detroit can pull this off while cleaning up their little habits, they’ll advance in fantastic form.


Taylor Decker: Lions are on the verge of a turnaround

It’s not just Ragnow full of conviction. Regarding the Lions’ position, tackle Taylor Decker has had many seasons in the past and knows the Lions are in good form as a team despite the close loss.

“I spoke to the guys in the dressing room afterwards and said we’re right there and I can feel it,” he told media. “I’ve been (here) for seven years now and we’re right there. We’re so close to being a really, really good team, but we just have to climb that mountain. There’s just details that we have to eliminate and we have to go out there and I think we have to believe that we’re the guys that people don’t want to play with. We don’t want to play against the lions.”

As Decker admitted, the Lions need to find a way to clean up some of the small details in order to win.

“The film will reveal a lot about where we need to go with these little things that we need to do to get over the hill and be more consistent. I think we were right there,” he said. “We’ve played games here in Minnesota in the past where we got blown out and it wasn’t competitive so there’s no moral victory, but we’re there. I think we’re close.”

It’s clear Detroit’s offensive lineman believes in the team. Whether they find a turnaround remains to be seen, but it’s evident that players aren’t giving up on their goals one bit.
