Marvin Jones defends Patricia: ‘It’s football. We run.’

An opinion in a local Detroit newspaper last week accompanied the headline: “Detroit Lions’ Matt Patricia is in danger of losing his players.”The column cited Patricia making professionals run for mistakes during practice as the reason the first-time head coach could alienate players.Joining NFL Network’s Good Morning Football on Thursday, Lions receiver Marvin Jones laughed off the controversy.”Shoot, it’s football. We run. You know what I’m saying?” Jones said. “Nobody is complaining. Everybody is just going out here working hard and we’re having fun doing it”So, whoever’s grandma wrote that story, I don’t know.”Sick grandma burn.The column has since been roundly criticized as off-base and intentionally inflammatory. Others might tend to call it #FakeNews.
