Bone-headed play irks Schwartz
Accountability is the Lions buzz word this week after Sunday's 48-3 loss at Baltimore. It should be, and actually it has been all season under coach Jim Schwartz. Hes not afraid to bench players who screw up and he proved it again on Sunday when Aaron Brown made the wrong move on a kick return play at the end of the first half.
Or, as Schwartz called it the bone-headed play.
After that, Brown didnt return another kick. Instead Derrick Williams got the call.
It was not the first time Brown has erred as a kick returner and been benched for it, but it might be the last.
I dont want to say its his last chance, but sometimes another chance doesnt come, lets put it that way. You cant count on another chance coming, Schwartz said.
Instead of letting the ball go into the end zone for a touchback, Brown grabbed it at the 1-yard line and managed just three yards. It was a failure to execute the scheme, it was a poor decision, Schwartz said.
