Jim Schwartz Addresses the Media at Detroit Lions Headquarters


Jim Schwartz addressed the media this afternoon, here are some bullet points of what he talked about:

  • He would rather get the win and have things to improve on than to play well and lose.
  • The team played as well in the second half as they played poorly in the first half.
  • Not all the sacks were the offensive lines fault. The first was a snap count issue while another was the result of a receiver running the wrong route. Jeff Backus can and will play better.
  • Passing to Brandon Pettigrew was essentially their running game. Problem with the running game was taking too many negative yardage plays.
  • Team hasn’t played their best football yet.
  • On Calvin Johnson: he’s pretty good.
  • Sammie Hill has to avoid the personal foul calls but it is hard to slow down a big body like that.
  • Lions expected big things from Titus Young, there is a reason they drafted him as high as they did. He is fearless over the middle and has great hands.
  • Aaron Berry left the game with a groin injury. Not sure how long it will keep him out.
  • Went for the field goal on first down because of confidence in Jason Hanson.
