Last year, we covered a story in which former Detroit Lions offensive lineman (and current ESPN analyst) Lomas Brown admitted to intentionally missing a block in order for quarterback Scott Mitchell to get injured in a game against the Packers. Mitchell fired back at Brown with venom (as did many, many people online) after Brown's admission, but now, the two are apparently friends after talking the incident out according to PFT: Brown said he called Mitchell to discuss the comments, and said they had a long conversation and parted as friends. He would not have blamed Mitchell if he hadn’t forgiven him, Brown said. "It was foolish," Brown said. "If that would have been me getting a phone call from me after what I said, I wouldn't have reacted the way Scott reacted," Brown said. "I would have been mad. I wouldn't have been laughing on the phone with me. "Scott wasn’t like that."   Good for Mitchell for being the bigger man and moving on from the incident. It looks like this extremely bizarre story is over and done with, but that doesn't necessarily mean we're going to forget about it. I wonder how much of Mitchell's conversation with Brown was just him trying to extinguish the flames of the fire Brown created so he could continue to live his life and not be questioned about the situation any further. For Brown, he has to be thankful his comments didn't completely derail his career as an NFL analyst for ESPN. [Pro Football Talk via DetroitLions.com]
