  1. There’s far worse guys out there and all his players seemed to really love him. He’s got some deficiencies like focusing way too much on the front 7 and ignoring the secondary, but again, there’s far worse guys out there.

  2. Ah the potential return of Gym Shorts. If Harbaugh comes back to the NFL, we can all look forward to the post-game handshake. . . .

  3. One thing about Schwartz’s record in Detroit, he took over the 0-16 and took them to the playoffs in his third season.

    His teams were a little undisciplined but I actually liked him overall and it wasn’t his fault Martin Mayhew was the GM blowing draft picks left and right.

  4. They could hire way worse than him. Keep looking Browns he’s too good for your sorry sadness factory.

  5. I remember when he made his players carry him off the field after beating the Lions. He was super pumped. Good times

  6. Schwartz… are you nuts? do you really want to dive into the NFL’s version of the bottomless black hole?

    Why don’t you do like Jim Marshall and run the wrong way.
