Lions notes: More on Sunday's loss to Giants

Lions notes looks at various tidbits from Sunday's loss to the New York Giants.

  • The Detroit Lions just can't stop turning the ball over.
  • This pretty much sums up how bad things have been for Matthew Stafford as of late:
  • Following Sunday's game, Lions players "uniformly" put their support behind Jim Schwartz, according to Kyle Meinke.

  • Schwartz had nothing to say about his job status, and prior to Sunday's game, Lions general manager Martin Mayhew declined comment on everything when approached by a group of reporters.

  • When asked to explain if he was yelling at fans at the end of regulation, Schwartz claimed that he was "trying to get our team fired up" and wasn't addressing the crowd. Okay then.

  • At this point, it doesn't look like Calvin Johnson is going to need surgery to repair any of his lingering injuries.

  • Dorin Dickerson actually suffered a concussion on Sunday and kept playing anyway. He decided to not report the fact that he lost consciousness to trainers until after he dropped a pass and got a holding penalty on back-to-back plays in overtime.

  • How about a round of applause for Jeremy Ross?
  • DeAndre Levy deserves a round of applause as well.
