Freeney says Caldwell will get Lions focused
Allen Park — Defensive end Dwight Freeney and coach Jim Caldwell have been in this dire situation before.
With four weeks of the regular season remaining, the Lions have fallen well off pace in the playoff race and have no safety net to save them now.
But while their postseason hopes are on the verge of flatlining, there is still a faint pulse, which is all that matters at this point of the season.
“This is December, this is the fourth quarter for us,” Freeney said Thursday after practice. “We all talk about the fourth quarter and what that means. That means hitting your stride in the fourth quarter and that’s what you want to do.
Defensive end Dwight Freeney played under coach Jim Caldwell with the Indianapolis Colts in 2010.
