(ALLEN PARK, Mich.) — It’s been a rough year for the Detroit Lions and for their fans. Fortunately, only two games remain in their season, but Lions head coach Jim Schwartz is making sure he takes all the blame for another losing season.
“The ultimate responsibility of the team is (with) the head coach, and I need to do a better job,” Schwartz said who has lost 10 games in three of his four seasons as coach in Detroit. “4-10 isn’t good enough.”
We’ve had a lot of games this year that came down to one critical play in the fourth quarter that you look at and say, ‘Hey, if we made that one we would have won the game,'” he said. “We can’t be naive to think that this was one of those games.”
Wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been the lone bright spot for the Lions this year. Johnson is only 181 yards shy of Jerry Rice’ single-season receiving yards record, set with the 49ers in 1995.
One break for the Lions is that they’ll take on the Falcons on Sunday, who have already clinched the NFC South at 12-2.
