Time to talk Schwartz no not Gym Shorts Jim Schwartz. Maybe I am the only one but I think he is hands down the best coach we have had in a decade. Not sense Wayne Fontes do I remember people being this confident about the staff behind the Lions. He has done great things besides breaking losing streaks and having a winning streak. Drafting Ndamukong Suh and bringing in KVB. Schwartz is a man who thinks out side the box and is diffrent from alot of coaches. Will that get him the all important trophy ? Only time will tell but the coaches who think diffrently and look at the game in another way tend to be sucessful in the long run. Coming off 0-16 I belive it is fair to say he has done more than a decent job. With tons of young talent to mold and experinced coaches standing next to him Jim Schwartz has growin as a coach. Jim is first a fan of football it's not just a job it's his life and those are the type of men you want. He has gone the extra mile to reach out to a fan base that has been almost invisible sense Joey and Mooch left town. There is no question with his love of music he has easily cemented himself in Detroit culture.
Jim Schwartz is a product of Billicheck and Jeff Fisher. He has had a great opertunity coming up through the ranks to get a job as head coach. When that time came unlike many others didn't shy away from the Detroit Lions job. He wanted the challenge and set out to build this team into a winner. I am sold on Schwartz other may not be I know some that are not. So I ask you all is it time to consider giving Schwartz a contract extension ? If not what would it take for him to get one ? Next off-season this will likley be a hot topic and I am starting to think maybe we shouldn't let it go that far and add on another year or 2 to his current deal. What do you guys think ?
