Same Old Lions Lose Lionesquely And Miss Playoffs

December 23, 2013



"You ask any Lions fans, they want a change."

David Solano, WXYZ-TV on fans' criticism of Lions coach Jim Schwartz.

A few weeks ago, the Lions controlled their own destiny, sitting in first place in the NFC North with a 6-and-3 record, two wins over the Chicago Bears, and a relatively easy path to the playoffs. But in the end, as it has every year for the last 50 years, their destiny ended up controlling them. They’ve lost five of their last six games and are of the playoff picture after losing to the New York Giants 23-to-20 in overtime at Ford Field Sunday. WXYZ sportscaster David Solano tells WDET's Pat Batcheller that the loss raises several questions, including whether head coach Jim Schwartz will be fired.
