Former Detroit lions defensive-end Lawrence Jackson decided to take to Twitter this morning to describe his feelings about the Lions and specifically Jim Schwartz. The stream of tweets starting with his thoughts on Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton’s assertion that the Lions are a dirty defensive line. In football the QB is the head of the snake…unless you're Flynn in December. Knocking the QB out almost guarantees victory that's goal #1 — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013 I don't disagree with him about Jim, but the other stuff…it's sharks in the water…if you don't want any problems…protect your QB… — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013 Then he started to talk about his feelings about Schwartz that he alluded to in the previous tweet. @BigRed6810 his attitude is different. There's only one Bill Belichick. There's a lot to being honest and doing whatever it takes to win. — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013 “@sanman20: @LoJackson94 what do you have against Jim?” I don't have anything against him. I just don't have a ton of respect for him. — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013 @sanman20 not everyone is held to the same standard and things are done because he wants to do them not because they're good for the team. — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013 @sanman20 he will also lie right to your face. I asked a question I knew the answer to and he tried to ******** me…I saw right through it. — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013 Jackson went on to say he liked defenisve coordinator Gunther Cunningham, but thought Scott Linehan was not the best offensive coordinator. He believes the offense stalls too much. @killernut4 I like Gun a lot. I feel the same way towards Scott that you guys do. For the power of that offense they shouldn't stall often. — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013 @killernut4 offensive 3& outs were frustrating and turnovers were frustrating. — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013 When asked about how to fix the Lions, Jackson believes it is not just a “head coach thing.” @det_sports_nut I don't think it's just a get a new head coach thing… — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013 He also goes on to state that this is not a question of sour grapes and that he chose to leave the organization. For all the fans that think I'm sour and think I'm a bust. It's really true that ignorance is bliss. Limited perspective is the ill of man. — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013 @ShaunMichael80 I have nothing to be sour about, I chose to not come back. And this is stuff I felt when I played but couldn't tweet. — Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 27, 2013
