JIM SCHWARTZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Chicago Bears to Face Familiar Defense Week 1

The Chicago Bears are set to face a familiar defense Week 1 against Buffalo. The Bills have a new defensive coordinator who the Bears know all to well. Will it help them? Jim Schwartz is bringing his piss-poor attitude from the NFC North to the AFC East. He doesn’t get to bring Suh, luckily for Chicago, but he will still bring his 4-3 base defensive scheme to Buffalo. Matt Forte...

Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell takes different approach than Jim Schwartz to Ndamukong Suh's aggression

Detroit Lions: Head coaching candidates

Jim Schwartz (photo credit: AP) As the NFL regular season came to a conclusion on Sunday, there are now only 12 teams that still have an opportunity to reach Super Bowl XLVIII. To no surprise, the Detroit Lions are not included as one of these teams and will now begin their preparation for the 2014 season.

Lions PR omits questions about Jim Schwartz's job status

An important lesson anyone in sports public relations needs to learn is that trying to avoid problematic questions or hide negative storylines often only makes things worse. That would seem to be the case with the Detroit Lions, who have drawn much more negative attention by apparently excising some press conference questions and responses from a transcript provided to media.

Report: Jim Schwartz likely to be fired if Lions miss playoffs

The Detroit Lions have had several chances to take control of what has been a mediocre NFC North division this season, and they have not been able to capitalize.
