Lomas Brown says he and Scott Mitchell are now friends

Lomas Brown, the former Lions offensive tackle who said last year that he purposely missed a block in a 1994 game because he wanted teammate Scott Mitchell to get hurt, says he and Mitchell have now smoothed things out.

Although Brown initially bragged that he was the one who forced Mitchell to be replaced with backup Dave Krieg, who played well for the Lions that year after Mitchell’s injury, he later was the target of intense criticism and apologized. Now Brown tells DetroitLions.com that with time to think about it, he feels “sick” about what he said.

The good news, Brown said, is that he called Mitchell and the two of them became friends ove the course of their conversation.

“If that would have been me getting a phone call from me after what I said, I wouldn’t have reacted the way Scott reacted,” Brown said. “I would have been mad. I wouldn’t have been laughing on the phone with me. Scott wasn’t like that.”

Apparently Scott Mitchell is a bigger man than Lomas Brown.

    ===============================
    Lomas Brown was an idiot when he played, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that he’s an idiot now.

    I can still remember the fans in Philly chanting his name after he guaranteed that the Lions would beat the Eagles in the 1995 Wild Card game… the Lions lost by something like 52 – 20…

    L O M A S… L O M A S… L O M A S….

    Has Lomas been fired or suspended from First Take? I know football season is over, but I didn’t see him back on there during the last part of the post-season.

    Wonder who talked to him? It’s always good when someone steps in a tells an idiot how to look like an otherwise good guy.

    He was being nice and laughing cuz he’s STILL a little out of it and thought he was talking to Santa Claus, you psycho.

    Sure you’re friends, Lomas ….. sure.

    Spin isn’t what it used to be.

    With friends like Lomas Brown who needs enemies…… So says Scott Mitchell!

    Does anyone really believe Lomas Brown is the only o-lineman to intentionally miss a block because he was pissed at the QB?

  11. randygnyc says: Feb 15, 2013 9:25 AM

    Character is a matter of upbringing, genetics and intelligence. This story reinforces that scientific fact.

    Thunder buddies for life.

  13. rj6976 says: Feb 15, 2013 9:52 AM

    No but he’s the only one dumb enough to admit it publicly

  14. fl0ri0sm0m says: Feb 15, 2013 10:29 AM

    It’s not so much what you *said,* Lomas, but rather what you *did* that should make you sick.

  15. ajgreenshands says: Feb 15, 2013 10:47 AM

    Did anyone hear Scott Mitchell say they were friends?

    No, but:

    1. No one else has admitted it.

    2. If they did, I have to assume they would be somewhat ashamed instead of reliving their glory years.

    “We’re now friends”

    My ex-girlfriend told me the same thing yesterday.

    “Feels sick” about it… If he felt sick about it, he wouldn’t of broughten it up in the way he did. Only reason he’s suddenly sick about it is because he realizes people didn’t react the way he wanted them too.

    I don’t think the genie is going back into the bottle on this one that easily. But nice try Lomas.

  20. fdugrad says: Feb 15, 2013 11:45 AM

    Somebody actually wrote “broughten it up?”

  21. 1oldpro says: Feb 15, 2013 12:46 PM

    Maybe you could do an article when Scott Mitchell says that he is now Lomas Brown’s friend after one phone call. That will be news.

  22. 69finfan says: Feb 15, 2013 1:04 PM

    I would be very interested to see a quote from Scott Mitchell to see if he feels this way. Somehow me thinks he doesn’t.

  23. chris6523 says: Feb 15, 2013 1:12 PM

    No, but:

    1. No one else has admitted it.

    Oh, so I guess it’s ok to do it as long as you don’t admit it. OJ will be glad to hear that.
