Unnamed Lions Player Says Head Coach Jim Schwartz 'lost Control'
An unnamed Detroit Lions player blamed players for going 4-12, but he said that Jim Schwartz "lost control of the team" in 2012. He put blame on the players, but he also made some interesting comments about Lions head coach Jim Schwartz and the team's lack of discipline. Here they are via CBS Sports' Mike Freeman:
"I think players first and foremost are at fault," said the player. "I also think Coach [Jim Schwartz] lost control of the team a little. I hope he comes back. It would be stupid to fire him, but we were an undisciplined team. Most of that is on us.
"But everyone needs to be accountable. The coaches, the players, the front office. Guys need to stop acting like assholes off the field. Need to stop getting stupid penalties. The truth is coaches need to punish guys more when they screw up."
