OK, let’s get this out of the way right now — Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz does not like it when his team commits personal foul calls. He doesn’t like giving the opponent first downs and he doesn’t like surrendering 15 yards.
Got that? Are we good there?
OK, having said that, Schwartz couldn’t help but smirk a couple of times when asked about the back-to-back personal foul calls on his defense in Friday’s 34-3 preseason win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
As exhibition openers go, the Lions couldn’t have asked for much more from Friday night’s 34-3 win over the Bengals at Ford Field. Their offense was crisp, their defense opportunistic, and most important, their quarterback stayed healthy.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
