This man is a fucking gem.


Iwillrize14

100% yes. I really hurt when we had to let him go because he was everything you wanted in a RB, in the end football is a business.


Johan_Sebastian_Cock

"If you gonna piss like a puppy, stay on the porch and let the big dogs eat" ngl that shit fired me up.....


TheThoroughCrocodile

I love how the group responded to that part like they're at church


FmrHvwChamp

"Mmmmm"


AdPerfect69

Sorry Dad, if god wanted me to go to church then he’d have Jamaal Williams start a church near me


devonta_smith

that's the sign of a deep playoff run team in the making. believe it


schwing9

Dattebayo


mynamesdaveK

Lions bout to pop off this year. Really gonna turn some heads I think. Been making all the right moves no doubt. I think 6-11 is possible.


ShockAndAwe415

Any dogs in the house???


devonta_smith

not to take away from how objectively bad ass this clip is, but I can't watch it without thinking of that [Rock/Kevin Hart skit](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zn5ZJB3lXkc)


MiOutdoorExpedition

Listened that and now I’m ready to type so hard on my keyboard and attend so many zoom meetings. Let’s gooooooo


Ice_Hube1

Got that dog in him. Can’t teach it.


DJ_Moore_2

I want to go back to work now.


mystery_fight

Everyone loves Jamaal Williams


roshambo11

He hasn’t even played for the Bears and I love him


VinDNDiesel

Man has played for 2 division rivals and it’s still all love. He’s a true gem.


Frogman1480

We miss him so much but get to see him twice a year


Griffisbored

Jon Gruden torqued it to this video for 30 mins straight


HeywardH

He knocked on wood.


WarthogOrgyFart

Glad the lions can replace the browns as my favorite underdog team.


Bob_Loblaw_Law_Blog1

I miss having the Bucs in our division. Seems like any Barry Sanders highlight reel is 60% Tampa games lol.


dontshootthattank

Weird they would be in the same division given the geographical reality.


MikeyNg

Sigh... Tampa Bay has won that division more recently than the Lions :(


ShartPeeMilkPenis

Yikes is that real? When was that?


MikeyNg

1999 for Tampa 1993 for Detroit :(


Tdayohey

My late uncle was a huge Detroit fan. He’d be hype about this team. Can’t not root for Detroit.


Frank9Diesel

Yeah I have always rooted for the under team between the Lions and Browns. But with the Deshawn Watson thing, Its just the Lions for me now.


yrulaughing

I'm in the same freakin' boat. These Lions are impossible to not root for.


Enough-Alfalfa

Mans poured his soul out. I love football man


Skelthy

I would die for this team


Choco320

Here’s to meeting y’all at the Super Bowl


Glarbluk

No you can meet Miami in the Super Bowl


MikeMcKnightDev

I don't know how you can't hope this team succeeds. If you haven't watched the new hard knocks I highly suggest it. I usually don't enjoy it but this lions team is hard to not root for.


siguel_manchez

Episode one has just landed on Sky Sports in Ireland. I never bother with HK, but made an exception this year.


Jesuissandoz

Actually, it’s very easy for me.


Crazy-Penguin

Ya know, I respect a Packers fan who says this. It's way better than the "way to go little bro Lions!" shit we have to deal with most of the time


Autobot-N

Camaraderie between division rivals is disgusting


Johan_Sebastian_Cock

I'm here for it. gonna preface this by saying I know this might sound condescending, but: having been raised on *football* football, the general chumminess between American sports fans has always been weird to me. You guys can go at it for sure, but someone has to ring the bell for shit to kick off, so to speak. I know it's hugely problematic and not good whatsoever for society, but I fucking love that soccer fans have to be separated in the stadium and pubs/bars are off-limits to fans of the visiting team on gameday. the constant simmering hatred for my fellow man over a sports team just gets me wet.


Autobot-N

English soccer fans have such a reputation that one of the most recent Pokemon games (set in England) designed the evil team off of them, just a bunch of ~~soccer~~ Pokemon trainer hooligans


We-Dont-Rent-Pigs

Being from the Yoop, it's always very weird to see the condescending friendliness towards the Lions on here. Up here, Packers - Lions is a super intense rivalry. Packer - Lions are always by far the 2 biggest games each year. I hate the Lions. Their fans annoy the shit out of me, as they should, but a lot of the people I love are Lions fans. Still, I hope they have to endure large amounts of pain for being a fan of that damn team. Edit:paragraphed


which_ones_will

Ugh. Packers fans who live in Michigan are the lowest form of life. It's going to be fun when that bandwagon comes to a crashing halt.


We-Dont-Rent-Pigs

I've been called that before, & maybe you're right. But it's Packers country where I'm at. Shit, Green Bay is just over an hour from me. I've been there a thousand times. So I'll be damned if I root for the Lions just because Michigan couldn't get Toledo back in the day & instead got some land they didn't even want. Hell, the Vikings & Bears are both closer to me than the Lions are. Even with that, I follow fair play rules when talking trash. I never talk trash during or after games, & always just fun, good natured ribbing with friends at other times. But I know countless shitty Packer fans have sealed my fate & when we're not on top I'm going to hear endless amounts of trash talk. I'm trying to soak it all in because it won't last forever.


Overall-Conflict4285

Well technically lions are way bigger then cheese so...


MiniatureLucifer

You're really getting downvoted for saying you won't root for a divisional rival lol


48ozs

Seriously. Just because there’s an inspirational message doesn’t mean this comments needs to be soft as fuck. That comment from the packers guy was so small on the offensive scale and got that huge reaction


HeywardH

Packers flair in a Lions thread. Downvotes are coming.


Mavori

We don't take kindly to Packers fan round these parts


RedWingWay

Don't let it bother you. The Packers are like the hot girl in High school who talks shit on everyone than starts losing her looks over the summer and by the time College hits she's alone in her dorm eating a gallon of ice cream and talking about the good old days.


Kame_Style

Given the success, it seems more like they party through college, get a fantastic job, enjoy a nice long career and retire to a cozy setup by the lake.


RETURN_OF_JD

bears fans are worse. packers organization sucks but bears fans really suck


Eran-of-Arcadia

Maybe, but you have to root for Jamaal.


sharktopuss-

I was so sad when Jamaal went to the lions, but I am rooting for him. My team is the Packers but I am a football fan and that dude has heart. Glad to see he is a leader on this team.


escobert

I hope they do better this year but I also hope they stay at #4 in the division.


SoDakZak

My wife, who is a milquetoast NFL fan when 1) the Vikings are playing and above .500 and 2) I’ve gotten the honeydoo list done before kickoff, sat down and watched this with me that night and said they need to do more content like this because this is FUN and INSPIRATIONAL to watch and see personalities come out and a team rally around them. By the end of Jamaal Williams’ speech, I shit you not, this 5 foot 6 inch 122lb girl ran through our stone fireplace out to our garden and started throwing our summer squashes across our yard through the hole in the wall to me screaming *“ONLY PUPPIES STAY IN THE FOUR SEASON PORCH, ZAK, YOU A FUCKIN DAWG OR YOU A BITCHASS PUPPY?!”*


geologyrocks98

Is this a new copypasta? I swear I saw you post this before lol


SoDakZak

I originally posted it late on the aidan Hutchinson post singing Billie Jean and those that saw it seemed to like it :)


Jheartless

Im here for it. Wife and I watched episode 1 last night, today she said that line to one of her employees that had to go to urgent care for an infected finger.....


I_MILK_KITTENS_MILK

Infections aren't nothing to fuck with. I got am infection once and thought nothing of it. Ended up in the hospital for 4 weeks. MRSA or any infection should be taken very seriously.


TBoneTheOriginal

Lmao I was gonna say the *exact* same thing.


Kingkwon83

Let's turn it into one lol


mystery_fight

Well, what are you?!


SoDakZak

I’m a puppy 😔


Sigurlion

omg


Tie_me_off

I’m a Lions fan after episode 1


sulimir

Welcome aboard. We are glad to have you until week 2 ;).


Tie_me_off

Lol


falconmarf

Dammit. I'm a Lions fan now. I'm about a playoff run away from moving to Detroit.


i-eat-dolphins

Welp I guess you won't be moving anytime soon we all know Detroit sports are cursed


WannabeTypist11

Pistons got some “recent” flags buddy don’t be so hard on yourself!


i-eat-dolphins

Well I'm mostly a tigers fan so I guess just sadness is what I equate with Detroit sports


WannabeTypist11

I’m sorry dude, as a royals fan I feel like I’ve been in your bucket my whole life besides those two amazing years. Who knows what can happen.


L3ftBra1nz

I’d recommend the suburbs around Detroit…


ColderShoulder_

Visiting Detroit many times in the past decade. It’s gotten nice! Not the city it was in the early 2000’s. I’m finding myself downtown pretty often for concerts or a Lions game and wanting to actually explore the city rather than show up right at open and leave right after.


L3ftBra1nz

I 100% agree with you but I still would prefer the suburbs lmao.


SgtWinters7

Brother you are gonna by so much land in the 313 your head will spin


sportsfan6970

Love it I'm tired of people always talking shit because I'm a die hard lions fan love his attitude......


AirborneDaddy173

This fired me up. Perfect timing sitting the gym parking lot. IF YOU’RE GOING TO PISS LIKE A PUPPY, STAY ON THE PORCH AND LET THE BIG DOGS EAT!!!


[deleted]

Made me a fan of his for life with that speech


Barry_McCockinnerz

Bruh got me feeling like a bum


MegaMongoloid113

I HAD TO SELL MY LAKERS TICKETS!!!!!


KSO17O

How the fuck did we let this man go goddamnit


Belltent

Packers fans got to see his energy, how fun he was, and what a good mood he always seemed to be in. I don't think we ever quite got to see this. He's the best.


atmsillini

D’Andre Swift stock 📉


AlternativeNumber2

I root for the Lions every year to be great and they aren’t even my team, LETS GO!


AwkwardArugula

Am I the only one that thinks the helmet condoms make full pads look like battle armor?? NFL should let players that wear them use decals like Goalie Masks in Hockey. popularity 180 if they do that and fuck Deshaun in crying baby


WrathofKhaan

The full speech is even more moving. Hard Knocks cut out that part where he talks about the kids with cancer visiting their practice who are fighting for their lives everyday and don’t give up. That part really makes you tear up.


Mean_Fan_4917

63 YO native, proud and unapologetic Detroiter here. I make no excuses for our beloved Detroit sports teams. I’m proud to wear the Honolulu Blue, Olde English D and the Winged Wheel anywhere. Everywhere. I live in Texas and the conversations can be vigorous. But make no mistake: I stand with Detroit.


Gold_Bank_1746

Jamaal thanks for everything you did at BYU


DaniloGallinariGOAT

Donald Glover will play him in the movie


MReprogle

Is there an NFL team that has more people hoping they do well? Even as a Colts fan, last year I was watching Lions scores and hoping they would pull off wins. I really feel like they are building their locker room with guys that love the game and the coach is obviously a big part of that.


FmrHvwChamp

I'm always rooting for the Lions. But... does anyone really expect better than maybe 5-12 this year?


Grouchy_Fly1967

The lowest regular season win total for any team that went on to win the super bowl was 9, so that's the min. But I think we all expect 17 if we're being honest.


Mavori

Yes. 6 or 7 wins should not be impossible. I'm leaning more towards 5, but 6 is realistic.


Zikronious

Last year they lost 7 games by one score. Now you can look at that and say they were close to a 10 win season or that those loses are a mark of being a bad team. It’s the Lions so most people probably assume the latter (sorry Lions fans). I just hope they improve their record and do enough to keep MCDC and his staff around, cut Goff (assuming he doesn’t improve) and bring in a good QB.


HeywardH

They were a bad team that did not give up.


revdingles

Now we're an average team that won't give up, look out


HeywardH

I don't know about your defense, but that offense is pretty nice.


ATKwoo

Well we were completely decimated with injuries down to two UDFA starting at CB, PS WR’s, back up OL & our best DE tore his Achilles in week 1 on an already god awful roster it’s a miracle we didn’t go winless let alone win 3 games and lose 7 by one scores. We’ve got a whole new WR corps, added new Starting S & CB in FA & drafted pass rushers in the first & 2nd rounds. If we’re more more Fortunate with injuries I don’t see how we only win 5 games next year


RETURN_OF_JD

7-8 wins and in playoff hunt at midseason. 2nd in division, miss wild card.


harvey_norgenbloom

With how the NFC looks 5-12 might be able to make playoffs. /s


OkPotential3189

I wanna start doing push ups after listening to that


squatch42

It also motivated me to start doing a push up.


RETURN_OF_JD

did you make it


DaddyDaycareDan

Maybe I’m too skeptical, but this felt a bit performative for the cameras.


TBoneTheOriginal

If you think that’s performative, then you don’t know much about Jamaal Williams. His energy level is pretty much always 110%. Dude rolls out of bed in the morning pissing excitement.


EriPi688

Yeah dudes a A star actor in his spare time.


xlxxlv

Cringe is the word that comes to my mind


ImaginationMedical11

why?


2020Baker39

Miss him in Green Bay


cadomyavo

This season of Hard Knocks looks good so far


iDUMPEDbeforeTHEPUMP

Damn, this started kind of slow, I wasn't expecting anything besides the usual. Then he turned that shit up and got myle hyped/emotional with him. HIRE ME COACH, I'LL BUST ASS WITH THIS GUY


grabtharsmallet

J Swagg Daddy is like this all the time, on camera or off. Solid player, and an amazing locker room guy.


Frank9Diesel

I want him on my team.


RETURN_OF_JD

no


Frank9Diesel

Fair enough.


ZackRyderJr

Those are the type of people I want on the team regardless of record.


notatowel420

Smells like a 6 team win at best


youngpapiwhy

195 wins in the last thirty years. i love it. 195 wins in the last thirty years, and yet, "that ain't us!" uh as a matter of fact you're worse than that lmfao. "that ain't us!" yes the fuck it is lmfao


DamnImAwesome

That’s the point dumbfuck. That’s not them. The current team is a different team


ColderShoulder_

Actually this is the same squad of guys from 30 years ago /s


youngpapiwhy

Eh still the lions but go off baby
