Detroit Lions Notes And Quotes 7-30-12

Rookie Ryan Broyles, fresh off the non-football injury list, lined up for his first rep in the 7-on-7 drills Sunday. In his excitement, he was slow to get his chin strap buckled. Bad move.

In front of a large gathering of season ticket holders and media, Broyles got an R-rated earful from coach Jim Schwartz about being snap-ready when you get to the line of scrimmage. It earned a round of applause from the fans.

“That’s part of football,” said Broyles, the Lions’ second-round pick. “You love that when a coach gets on you. It means he cares. That’s a good thing.”

As it turns out, a rookie getting chewed on by coaches in his first day of practice is a rite of passage for just about every player – No. 1 and No. 2 overall picks sometimes are spared.
