At a time when Eagles coach Andy Reid admits he doesn’t know what a tweet is, Lions coach Jim Schwartz is unusual among NFL head coaches in that he actually uses Twitter to provide some interesting insight into his thoughts on the team.
Granted, JSchwartzLions has nowhere near as many Twitter followers as Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, the only other NFL coach I’m aware of who’s on Twitter. But he does have more followers than me, and it’s interesting to follow Schwartz because he’s willing to offer his assessments of his players, 140 characters at a time.
Today Schwartz tweeted, “New KR/PR Stefan Logan has been impressive this week. He’s a natural catching the ball, makes good decisions, is quick & surprisingly strong.”
Obviously, Schwartz isn’t going to tweet anything that could provide a competitive advantage to the Lions’ opponents. But if you’re a Lions fan, you should follow him. And keep an eye on Stefan Logan.
