Bills Edge Imploding Lions With Field Goal; Jim Schwartz Carried Away

Lions kicker Alex Henery, who replaced previous Lions kicker Nate Freese roughly two weeks ago, will probably not be a Lions kicker for much longer. He missed all three of his field goal attempts today, keeping the game in reach. Kyle Orton and the Bills took advantage of that opportunity with 11 points in the fourth… » 10/05/14 4:45pm 10/05/14 4:45pm

The Lesson Of ​Black Monday: Your NFL Team Doesn't Know What It's Doing

Yesterday was Black Monday in the NFL. My team's coach got fired. Your team's coach got fired. EVERYONE'S coach got fired. If six Fortune 500 CEOs were all shitcanned on the same day, the markets would crash; there'd be barricades in the streets by noon. But it's a telling sign of football culture that mass purges can… » 12/31/13 10:47am 12/31/13 10:47am

The NFL Will Get Rid Of Its Dumbest Rule

On Thanksgiving, Jim Schwartz boned Jim Schwartz by throwing a challenge flag on Justin Forsett's 81-yard touchdown.

Jim Schwartz's Illegal Challenge Doubled The Texans' Chances Of Winning…

With the possible exception of the tuck rule, the rule that tripped up the Lions and Jim Schwartz has to be one of the dumbest in the game. You don't have to throw the challenge flag because we'll review it on our own, the rulebook says, but if you throw the challenge flag we won't review it. » 11/23/12 12:05pm 11/23/12 12:05pm

Hey, Mike Florio, Chuck Noll Was Not Above Confronting Another Coach…

Here's Florio, on Schwartz-Harbaugh: "Not that long ago, all coaches exuded a sense of dignity toward the game and respect toward each other. From Tom Landry to Chuck Noll to Bud Grant to John Madden to Don Shula, coaches didn't treat each other like opponents in the main event of the next pro wrestling… » 10/17/11 3:40pm 10/17/11 3:40pm

Jim Harbaugh Was Still Fired Up After His Skirmish With Jim Schwartz…

Yesterday, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh untucked his shirt, chest-bumped a lineman, and then shook hands with losing coach Jim Schwartz. Then he (allegedly) yelled "Fuck you!" or "Fuck yeah!" at Schwartz as he ran away and towards the tunnel, which is (allegedly) what set off the Lions coach and led to this awkward… » 10/17/11 3:10pm 10/17/11 3:10pm
