- NFL.com's Elliot Harrison thinks six coaches are entering the 2013 season on the hot seat. Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz is unsurprisingly included on the list, as are the Oakland Raiders' Dennis Allen, the Dallas Cowboys' Jason Garrett, the Tennessee Titans' Mike Munchak, the Carolina Panthers' Ron Rivera and the New York Jets' Rex Ryan.
It's not clear just how hot Schwartz's seat is with the Lions' front office and ownership, but it's pretty clear he won't survive another season like 2012. Does he need to lead the Lions back to the playoffs or get them to at least .500 to remain the head coach? I suppose we'll find out in due time.
- This is just a great tweet from Havard Rugland:
- The 2013 NFL Supplemental Draft is set to take place on July 11, although there aren't really any interesting storylines for it this year.
- NFL.com is hosting a tournament to decide the greatest uniform in NFL history. The Lions are a No. 12 seed in the throwback bracket (for the uniform they wore from 1934-47) and a No. 9 seed in the current uniforms bracket.
