Here's hoping Monday the Lions announce Jim Schwartz as their new head coach, allowing him to get his pick of coordinators and a chance to coach the Senior Bowl. Tennessee lost to Baltimore in a huge defensive battle that ended up 13-10 with a FG coming by Baltimore in the final seconds.
I did find another interesting tidbit about something I thought I saw in the game. Haven't seen replays, but I guess it wasn't challenged, but likely could have been though I'm not sure it would have been overturned.
Joe Flacco -- the much lauded Rookie QB of the Ravens, "nearly" stepped out of the endzone on a pass play at the beginning of their final drive. It was VERY close, and he didn't even realize where he was. Literally a couple more inches, and he would have pulled an Orlovsky -- only he likely would have cost his team a 12-10 playoff loss. DanO was essentially, when it comes to game experience, a rookie this year and that is the kind of thing that newly-starting signal callers will do.
Just reiterates to me more that with how much DanO was improving, they should re-sign him -- and go a different direction other than QB in the draft this season and see what they have for the long haul in Stanton and DanO. If they don't like what they see, get a QB in 2010.
Go Chargers!! Go Lions!!!
