Lions can't get out of their own way...
Really good story here:
Lions can't get out of their own way - Yahoo! Sports
Now, the headline is a bit misleading, but I think the guy nicely breaks down what many of us fans fell about our team.
There is one particular item I want to point out though...
To say that the Lions have become a lightning rod for NFL controversy is more than an understatement, and itís hard not to wonder if their latest brain cramps might not force change that could have long-lasting effects on both the franchise and the league.
To his credit, Schwartz didnít complain at all, instead nodding in understanding of his mistake and taking full responsibility after the game. But hereís the problem: Wasnít Schwartzís mistake a perfect and terribly expensive example of all emotions boiling over and immaturity that has constantly plagued his team the last year and a half? And if itís coming from the head coach Ö will it ever get better?
I think Schwartz how has the same reputation. He's a hot head, he's a cheater, he's immature. Just look at the fact that he threw the challenge flag when he couldn't challenge... clear proof of his immaturity, right? Yet look at a very insightful comments made by a reader:
If Jim Schwartz is considered immature for throwing the red flag on a play he couldn't challenge, then Jim Harbaugh SF (who did it last season) and Mike Smith ATL (who did it 4 days prior to Schwartz doing it) must also be immature."It is swell to be home again in the City of Champions." - Bud Shaver
"Wow." - Jim Price
