The Detroit Lions slipped and slid plenty in the snow at Philadelphia. Maybe it was fitting.
Calling the NFL to discuss penalties is nothing new. This time, though, Jim Schwartz expects more of a concession than an explanation.
Now almost four years – and eight fines – into his playing career, Suh says he wants people to look at his body of work instead of that one moment.
Detroit coach Jim Schwartz offered one obvious antidote to Philadelphia’s fast-paced offense, which his Lions will try to contain this weekend.
As far as whether Sitton’s comments spurned that choice, Mosley said, “Nah, not at all.” Then he winked.
“If you told us at the beginning of the season we’d be first place in Thanksgiving we’d have five games to play, an opportunity to go win our division, I think we’d relish that opportunity,” Schwartz added, “and we’re going to.”
It’s hard not to feel bad for Lions fans.
“It is my ninth year, and I can say in my years, I’ve never seen this,” Mosley said. “Never.”
This time, it is not Ndamukong Suh being fined – at least not so far.
“That’s a grown man giving everything he has every play, and he’s playing through the whistle… There’s no switch for him,” Burleson added. “It’s always on.”
