When the finalists for NFL Coach of the Year was announced this AM twitter took notice to one name that was kept off the list. Dan Campbell of the Detroit Lions got snubbed. Here are some of the best tweets and reactions to the disrespect.
Dan Campbell not on this list is the most #detroitvseverybody thing ever.

Ridiculous that Dan Campbell isn’t on this list. To go from 3-13-1 to 9-8 and almost making the playoffs is huge. It’s not just the record of 9-8, but how we got to it after starting 1-6 he was able to completely turn the ship around. #Lions #MCDC

IMO, Coach of the year is just as "rigged" as MVQB I mean MVP award.
Coaching isn't about just winning. What Dan Campbell provided for the @Lions is nothing less than the real Coach of the year.
His energy and commitment to the team made me believe in the lions again!#OnePride

It’s clear that many people think Dan Campbell should at the very minimum be nominated for the award. But there is a reason #DetroitVsEverybody is a thing. Add this to the list of disrespect.
Hopefully Adian Hutchinson and Ben Johnson can bring home their respective awards for DROY and ACOTY.
