Last week former Lions OL Lomas Brown went on an ESPN radio station saying, “We were getting beat, 24-3, at that time and he just stunk up the place. He’s throwing interceptions, just everything. So I looked at Kevin Glover, our All-Pro center and I said, ‘Glove, that is it.’ I said, ‘I’m getting him out the game.’… So I got the gator arms on the guy at the last minute, he got around me, he hit Scott Mitchell, he did something to his finger … and he came out the game. Dave Krieg came in the game. We ended up losing that game, 27-24.”

The former Lions QB joined the Dan Patrick radio show today to talk about these comments from Brown. Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com hosted the show today in replace of Patrick. Here is what Mitchell had to say on the program, “It just really hurt. It was extremely disappointing. I’m really shocked by it, to be honest. Here’s a guy I’ve had in my house, I had a big dinner for the offensive linemen every year, he came to my house and ate dinner, I gave my offensive linemen gifts every year. For him to do that is just reprehensible, beyond words. It’s really disappointing, it really is painful. When you mess with my family, mess with my livelihood, mess with my health, it’s unacceptable. It’s B.S. I just wouldn’t do it to a teammate. I wouldn’t do it. If Lomas has a problem with me, come talk to me. To try to get someone hurt, it’s just mind-boggling.”

Mitchell broke his finger on the play and backup QB Dave Krieg came in and the Lions lost the game 38-30 in Green Bay on Nov. 6, 1994.
