Schwartz hissy fit, an omen of what's to come?
Perhaps, but I'm not one to listen to the rumors as to the why when it comes to Sunday's post-game on-field near brawl.
Perhaps a swear word was uttered, something that would shock even me. Probably not, though.
I'm guessing that Schwartz lost his cool when confronted by a guy he wanted badly to beat. But what does this mean for the rest of the season?
It's up to Schwartz to prove this was either planned, to get attention off his ailing 2-minute offense, or just an aberration that he will recognize needs to be corrected. He's a young coach, so he can have his moment. Jon Gruden had his drunken driving arrest. Wayne Fontes had the little cocaine question. It doesn't have to define a season, and this season has been a remarkable campaign so far for the long-lowly Lions.
If you're a Lions fan, you have to hope this is something out of the ordinary as the season has been going so smoothly. A few losses, though, and all that changes. But a hot head who can't back down from a slight....oh my. Just wait for the press conferences.
It would be better than the 'your daughter should have married a better defensive coordinator' (still the best comment to sum up the entire Matt Millen era). It would top, PLAYOFFS? It would outdo Marty driving off on his motorcycle. It would equal a drunken rant in a Southfield restaurant (Sorry, Gary, I had to go into your college career as your pro career's only blemish was a missed field goal.)
Let's just hope that Schwartz will keep the headlines for his quarterback, his defensive line and his team's won-loss record, and not on his short temper and his sensitive nature.
