re: NFL Thread: RAVENS SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS
They were coming off of 0-16 when he got here. The talent there was absolutely bare. And they played well in the first half of that game (were leading at half actually) but their shoddy secondary came up and bit them in the ass. Changes have to be made, but unless a big name is clamoring for the job (which probably won't happen since they wouldn't get full team control) Schwartz will get one more year. There's a lot of things I don't like about his style (Wide 9 sucks, players too undisciplined, lack of focus) but he's at least changed the culture where there's some expectations for the Lions. Next year will be a big year because 5 years in you should have a lot of your own guys (although they still have 4/5 shit line) but they need to at least be in Wild Card contention.
So hey, they're uh, expanding the playoffs next year, right? Please?
