Week 13 NFL picks against the spread: Scumbags

Here are your Week 13 NFL picks against the spread, scumbags.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton called the Detroit Lions "a bunch of dirt bags or scumbags" and then went on to say that Jim Schwartz is a dick, too.

"They go after quarterbacks, their entire defense takes cheap shots all the time," Sitton said to Sports Radio 1250 in Milwaukee. "That's what they do, that's who they are. They're a bunch of dirtbags or scumbags. I mean, that's just how they play." [...]

"That's how they're coached. That starts with their frickin' coach. That starts with their head coach, Schwartz. He's a d-, too," Sitton said. "I wouldn't want to play for him. It starts with him and their D-coordinator and their D-line coach. They're all just scumbags and so are the D-line."

POD commenter Latif Masud had a great comeback in the comments. Hey, the Lions' D-Line and coaching staff wouldn't get caught dead wearing that hat... but it looks good on you. Not really, and you know what else doesn't look good? Calling out your first-place opponents on the radio before the game. It makes you look like the "dick." Meanwhile, Schwartz responded nicely.
