Lions Notes: Jim Schwartz Tells Sean Payton To 'Go Win This Thing'

NEW ORLEANS, LA - JANUARY 07: Head coach Jim Schwartz of the Detroit Lions shakes hands with head coach Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints after their 2012 NFC Wild Card Playoff game at Mercedes-Benz Superdome on January 7, 2012 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

  • Here's a great tidbit from Michael David Smith: Out of all the quarterbacks that entered the playoffs, Matthew Stafford was the youngest. Let that sink in. To say the future is bright at quarterback might be an understatement.
  • Jim Schwartz had a great quote when asked about how he must be comfortable knowing that he has a quarterback in place for the next decade: "He's only 23, I'd say we have more than a decade."
  • The Lions/Saints game was featured on Sound FX this week. After the game, during the handshakes, Schwartz could be heard telling Sean Payton, "Go win this thing, man. See you down the road." I agree with the sentiment. I'm hoping the Saints do go win this thing, especially against the 49ers on Saturday.
  • With all of the talk about Jeff Backus and the left tackle position as of late, many have wondered about where Jason Fox fits into the equation. I think Schwartz did a good job of summing up the situation earlier this week: "We still have high regard for him but the biggest thing is he needs to put injuries behind him."
