Mayhew: Organization needs to work on handshake thing

ALLEN PARK — Since Lions general manager Martin Mayhew is media-shy, today (Thursday) was the first time the Lions beat writers had a chance to ask him about the handshake incident between Jim Schwartz and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh following the Oct. 16 game.

He was not asked about blowing off a handshake with Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli at the Ford Field elevators following the Lions’ win over the Chiefs on Sept. 18. But Mayhew brought it up anyway.

“As an organization we haven’t really mastered that whole post-game handshake thing,’’ Mayhew said.

“We’re still working on that. We’ll get that right next year ... Maybe we’ll do some drills on that,’’ he added.

Too bad Mayhew only talks to the media three or four times a season. He’s insightful and can be extremely witty. He just doesn’t seem to like the spotlight.

The only thing the Lions have mastered is having a freak receiver named Calvin Johnson. The rest of them aren't very good. If Johnsons IQ is higher than his uniform number, the Lions can kiss him goodby after next year. Welcome back to the world of 4-12.

I agree with the other commenter. Stafford's vastly over rated,as is the defensive line. Beyond that, they are average at best everywhere else. It's all about being so deperate to drink the Kool-Aid.
