Falcons LB De’Vondre Campbell Deals With Super Bowl Collapse By Watching It Every Week
Normally, the common wisdom is to take a painful experience, put it behind you, and move on. But for Falcons linebacker De’Vondre Campbell, another approach is in order.
His philosophy is to watch the Super Bowl he blew over and over and over for…motivation?
Bleacher Report recently broke down the second-year player’s curious habit, revealing the following:
And a second-year linebacker, in Campbell, who’s still rewatching the Super Bowl every damn week. Really. Listening to Future one week (“You Deserve It” is a go-to) and Jason Aldean the next (he loves how “authentic” country music is), Campbell deconstructs the loss.
His angle on every tackle. His depth on every drop. Campbell takes meticulous notes. He scribbles a star next to every bad play, vowing to never make that mistake again.
“That’s how you recover quickly,” Campbell says, “when you face it. When you sit there hiding from it… NFL Network ain’t hiding from it!”
That…doesn’t sound healthy. But neither is dropping a huge lead in the fourth quarter of a Super Bowl. So…it’s all good?
Let’s just hope this guy doesn’t lose his mind by week one.
