Here's the harsh reality. Has Schwartz proven he's a difference maker in terms of being able to change the culture? Do you feel things are really that different around Ford Field?
There better be a strong finish to this season... and I mean strong... to prove to me that Schwartz is, in fact, the correct coach for this team. This team is head and shoulders better than Last year, and there is NO WAY the Lions should be or even finish close to last year's record.
Of course he will have next year to ultimately prove his worth. But you gotta wonder why the so called "improved" team can't get a fucking win on the road against teams that should be cleaning the Lions' jocks.
Fuck the refs. Fuck the injuries. Fuck the excuses. Put the points up and there will be no controversy.
There is NO, NO reason for the Lions to have this shitty of a record and it falls directly on the coach.
Put the game away, take the 'old Lions excuses' out of the game.
EDIT.... BTW, Someone owes me a Signature line.
