Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz joined the show to talk about Ndamukong Suh and their early-season success.

“We’re proud to have Ndamukong Suh represent our team,” Schwartz said. “We think he’s a great football player.”

Schwartz said Suh might change some aspects of how he plays, but he hopes that Suh still plays with the same kind of passion. “Maybe [he’ll play with] a little different technique,” Schwartz said. “But I don’t think it will [affect] aggressiveness. … Ndamukong doesn’t want to do anything to hurt the team.”

KRIS Crossed Over

Schwartz commented on the Lions getting a lot of penalties — their third in penalties. He said it’s a game-by-game thing, and often it’s not the kind of problem it seems to be. For example, in some games, they get a lot of flags, but their opponent gets more. Schwartz said one kind of penalty that concerns him is post-whistle p

“The attitude and passion is more important in football,” Schwartz said. “It’s a short season. You need to to be fired up for every game.”

Schwartz talked about facing Tim Tebow after his Lions blew out the Broncos last Sunday. He compared Tebow to Vince Young. Schwartz said Young struggled throwing, but could win games. Schwartz said that Rich Gannon couldn’t throw at first and then he went on to win the MVP.
