Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz is taking some heat right now.
Schwartz, it seemed like, decided to go for a fourth down conversion instead of taking a chip-shot field goal. After the game, he said he was trying to get the Tennessee Titans to jump offsides.
Those plans did not work, as the ball w snapped by center Dominic Raiola. A lot of people are putting the blame on Raiola, but Schwartz says it is his fault.
“If they didn’t jump, we were going to take the timeout and the ball ended up getting snapped,” said Schwartz. “We needed to obviously make sure that all 11 guys get the calls right there. That’s as clear as I’m going to get. When it all comes down, that’s the coaches fault.”
The Lions lost the game 44-41. And Lions kicker Jason Hanson was 4-for-4 before the play.
