Congratulations to the Saints. They played a great game and won a hard fought victory.

I'm dissappointed with the loss but I'm proud of my guys for a giving it all they had in a difficult situation. Now it's time to move on and start working on making our team better next year.

Something like that? Instead of sounding like a whining little ****.

Actually, the pylon is considered the endzone. Touching the pylon is as good as breaking the plane.

This point was made by the talking heads - Yes they would have more yards BUT not a TD

Loser.

That's Lame!

OK, that quick whistle after the Brees fumble sucked, but they still had an extra opportunity to get it into the endzone. I also did see a face mask on the Saints that was not called.

BUT, neither of these had anything to do with the Lions defense unable to force the Saints to punt not once in the game!

Schwartz should be happy with the success he's had this season and look towards going further next season!

This attitude/perception permeating throughout the Lions really bothers me and I do see Coach Schwartz as a source of some of lack of mental toughness on the Lions. He's done a great job with the team, but there's a lot of room for improvement in this very important area of the team because players like Suh & Young follow his lead.

Oh well, it's not about the Lions anymore, you guys saw to that . . . congrats . . . I thoroughly enjoyed the LiveChat and best of luck the rest of the way. Black & Gold is a class act and HOF in my book.

gone fishin'.
I think Schwartz has done a good job, but it always appears he codones a thug attitude. I don't look at him as a great leader as much as I do an instigator. The Lions had a good year so I guess it works

In reality, they didn't get screwed, because the original call was an incomplete pass... on the contrary, the referee corrected the call, which was the right thing to do. That in Schwartz's mind that should have been a scoop and score, that's another matter, but if the whistle doesn't blow, the entire Saints team goes for that ball, and who knows what would've happened.
excellent. glad you made that point, Toby. I'll bet Bushrod makes another TD saving tackle.

Yeah, that's pretty much it in a nutshell ... he's done a fantastic job with the team, but there are some definite maturity/attitude issues with the team that correlate directly with the leadership and coaching. Can't say as I speak for all Detroit fans, but I think I'm inline with the rest of the football world with my assessment of Schwartz. I'd like to see a little more discipline and composure on the team.

go Lions.

The thing I did like about the Lions is the underdog status and the long shot team they've been all season. I admit I like an underdog.

I don't like the character of some of the staff and players, however.

If Suh wouldv'e tried to stomp on Brees or one of our players,
the outcome on the field would have been far different, is my guess.

That chest bumping / post game handshake episode and whining like a beatch after the Saints shellacked the Lions, proves a lot about your coach. You seem like a human, but he seems like a douchewagon.

I'd fire his arse.

Apportez le bois. Deux cela. Qui est celui?

It's not up to me, but if it was, I wouldn't necessarily fire him . . . the man's got skills . . . I'd take him and a few players aside and give them a period of instruction in good ol' fashioned leadership principles & traits, and then I'd supervise. And don't think I haven't already contacted the team more then once to offer my services . . . at no charge. As a former Marine Corps NCO and combat veteran, I think I'm more then qualified to address that issue with the team. I've handled plenty of young kids in high profile, stressful situations, it's the same all-around . . . handling prima-donna, overpaid, professional athletes would be a walk in the park ... but I think my PTSD is starting to kick in, so I gotta' go.

go Lions.
