Ndamukong Suh Supports Jim Schwartz

While Detroit Lions fans seem to have nearly universally turned on head coach Jim Schwartz, the same can’t be said for the players in the locker room. Coaches tend to be the fall guys when situations go bad but players are also responsible. Ndamukong Suh knows that’s the case and it is up to them to turn things around.

There is a growing sense that missing the playoffs will mean a coaching change in Detroit. Count Suh as those who don’t want to see that happen.

With Suh’s growing role as a team leader, the comments have to carry a some weight. For all the problems the Lions have had this season, discord in the locker room hasn’t been one of them and it hasn’t seemed like the players have given up on their coaches.
