While it’s been reported that Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz could be out following the team’s disappointing season, he will be back and there is “no merit” to the notion that the team seriously considered letting him go, reports Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Schwartz will be back in 2013.  The source also said that there’s “no merit” to the notion that firing Schwartz with three years left on his contract has been considered seriously. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported yesterday that Schwartz’s job could be in jeopardy. While Florio wouldn’t completely dismiss that initial report, he did note that the fact Schwartz is signed through the 2015 season is likely saving his job. The Lions ended their season at a disappointing mark of 4-12 after another close loss. There was much expected of the team after last season’s positive showing, and even if he’s not let go Schwartz figures to be on the hot seat entering next year.

Jim Schwartz Done In Detroit?

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.

Saved by the Buzzer: Mike McCarthy pulls a Jim Schwartz as Jordy Nelson tries to hide the evidence (VIDEO)

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).

Jordy Nelson’s Unsuccessful Challenge Flag Subterfuge

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...

Lions hoping for better offseason than in 2012
