May The Schwartz Be With Us


The Lions have named Tennessee Titans Defensive Coordinator Jim Schwartz as the new head coach, replacing the very fired Rod Marinelli. After looking at the Titans' defensive numbers this season, I'm happy with the hire. Tennessee finished the season second in the NFL in points allowed, seventh in yards allowed, and fourth in yards allowed per play. The Lions finished last in all three of those categories.

Kudos begrudgingly given to William Clay Ford and the Lions' front office for making a solid hire, and not allowing the process of finding a head coach to drag out past the postseason. It will be interesting to see what caliber of staff Schwartz is able to surround himself with.
