Found June 28, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Perhaps it's a good thing the Packers won't see the Detroit Lions for the first time next season until Week 11 of the league schedule, which falls on the third weekend of November. What's become a chippy rivalry between the longtime division foes added a new layer for potentially fueling more friction. Lions head coach Jim Schwartz indirectly may have taken a shot at counterpart Mike McCarthy's approach to the end of the Packers' offseason program. McCarthy canceled practice on the second day of a three-day minicamp in mid-June to take the team to a range outside Green Bay for clay shooting.Based on comments he later made, Schwartz seemingly had an issue with the likes of the Packers and other teams in the league that sacrificed a couple hours of work on the football field for a team-building exercise.

Detroit Lions Make Shrewd Move: Schwartz Extended

It was a move that needed to be made. Say what you want about lack of discipline and character issues. The Detroit Lions were a franchise coming off of the worst record in NFL history. And that record was no fluke either. The previous regime had fielded a team so devoid of talent that, given the opportunity, they could have repeated the feat in 2009. In three short years, this...

Stat Line: Detroit Lions

With one Detroit Lion after another cropping up on the police blotter this offseason, it’s worth remembering, as we approach the 2012 NFL season, one of the team’s primary undoings last year: lack of discipline.
