NFL Trade Rumors:
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the Lions owners are reportedly concerned about the team’s current “culture” and will at least consider the idea of replacing Jim Schwartz in the coming days, via Adam Schefter.
An NFL executive texted Schefter following message regarding the idea: “Just heard Mort on Jim Schwartz. I believe he is right. The Fords cannot be happy.“
There’s no question that the 2012 season was a huge disappointment for a team that looked to be heading in the right direction when they made the playoffs for the first time in a number of years last season. Several reports have indicated that Schwartz’s job is most likely safe, but there have also been other reports of tension between him and GM Martin Mayhew that could cause the team to at least consider some possible replacements.
We’ll have more on the topic as the news becomes available.

So apparently Lions head coach Jim Schwartz isn’t the only NFL coach that doesn’t know the rules of throwing the challenge flag and Jordy Nelson might be the smartest guy on the Packer sideline (coaches included). During the 4th quarter of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy threw a challenge [...]
During his end-of-year press briefing on Monday, Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz wouldn't comment on his own job status, but did indicate the possible return of troubled receiver Titus Young.
Mike McCarthy very nearly Jim Schwartz’d himself by throwing a red flag to challenge a fumble. That could have been a catastrophe had McCarthy not thrown it after the officials had already decided to review it, given the inane rule the NFL has about coaches throwing a red flag before an automatic review. Nevertheless, the Packers were penalized 15 yards for the challenge flag toss...
