Lions notes: Nate Burleson, officiating, Jim Schwartz, more

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Lions notes looks at Nate Burleson, officiating, Jim Schwartz and much more.

  • How bad are things for the Detroit Lions right now? Nate Burleson was heckled by a homeless man on Monday.

  • The Lions and Baltimore Ravens are both 7-6, marking the seventh time this season the Lions will have played a team with the same record as them.

  • I feel like we've been saying this every week for the last couple months now, but please starting taking care of the ball, Lions.
  • Jeremy Ross' kick return touchdown on Sunday was made possible by a few different players.
  • Sports Illustrated's Peter King blasted the officials for some of the calls that went against the Lions on Sunday in Philadelphia. Jim Schwartz avoided coming right out and criticizing the calls, but it's not tough to read between the lines of his comments. There's not much you can tell players when they're being flagged for clean plays.

  • Regarding the questions about cleats, the snow and if the Lions made adjustments, Schwartz said this on Monday:
  • Schwartz doesn't agree with the notion that the Lions defense is "soft."
