Jim Schwartz discusses Titus Young's Twitter rant

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz talked on Wednesday about wide receiver Titus Young's recent Twitter rant.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young's Twitter rant on Tuesday resulted in questions for head coach Jim Schwartz on Wednesday. Schwartz is busy coaching the South at the Senior Bowl, but he was asked about Young's tweets during a press conference on Wednesday.

For those who missed it, Young went on a lengthy rant that included tweets about his situation with the Lions. Among them was a tweet about how he isn't selfish, but he'd rather not play football anymore if he's not going to get the ball. He also tweeted about how he's never run the wrong route, saying instead that he just puts himself in the spot where the ball is going.

Needless to say, the tweets drew quite a bit of ridicule, including some from Schwartz. From MLive:

"There are good ways to go about getting that and not so good ways about trying to get that done. This is a pretty good example on a not-so-good way."

"It is what it is," Schwartz said. "We obviously still have some ground to cover there."

That would be an understatement. Young still hasn't learned his lesson, and if his Twitter account is any indication, I doubt he is going to change in the near future. The Lions would obviously like for Young to change his ways so they can salvage some trade value out of this situation, but it's really at the point where they are probably going to have to just release him and move on.
