Open Letter to Jim Schwartz and The Detroit Lions: You're Lucky, Shut Up

By Artie Cappello: After watching you on the sidelines in Dallas, during and after the game; then hearing the things you’ve been saying this week, one thing is clear Jim Schwartz–you love you some YOU!

That’s all good. You should feel good that your team is 4 – 0

What’s not good is how you and your team interpreted your win against our Dallas Cowboys. Acting like the win had anything to do with how well you played or how good you think you are.

Hey, Matthew Stafford, I liked your suggestion that the 3rd best receiver on the field got the best of the Cowboys. Cute! A sarcastic remark referring to Rob Ryan suggesting that his receivers were better than your receiver, Calvin Johnson. Really Matthew?. With the way you played in front of all your peeps in the suite you bought for the game, should you be acting so cocky? What should Rob Ryan have said? Calvin is better than our guys? Would you have said the Cowboys receivers were better than yours? No. You should love your receiver Matt, but let’s be real. Does it matter how good your receivers are when you mostly overthrow them or throw at their feet like you did in this game? Truth be told, Matt, the 3rd best receiver out on the field Sunday was Bobby Carpenter. If anything, your team got exposed. You are lucky to come out of Dallas with a win and you know it.

Coach Schwartz, all your bravado and classless swearing at our players, along with the glib, think you’re something your not yet attitude of Matthew Stafford can’t cover what we all saw. That is: Your Detroit Lions were completely outplayed by the Dallas Cowboys. Ndamukong Suh was a non factor, except when he was his dirty player self with his helmet leading late hit on Tony Romo. Matthew wasn’t doing anything special and Megatron wasn’t either. It looked to me like it was the first time you guys faced a decent team. Yet, you acted after the game like you and your team met the challenge with talent and perseverance and came out on top because you played so well. You were just biding your time for the opportunity to take control of the game…Really?

Listen Coach, and the rest of you Detroit Lions, you won for one reason and one reason only: For most of the second half you had 12 men on the field. That 12th man was our QB. Tony Romo took a game that you lost in every sense of the word and handed it to you on a silver platter! There is nothing to take away from that but–‘you’re freakin lucky!’ — and ‘lucky’ does not give you the license to talk @#$% about the Dallas Cowboys, no matter how bad we may be, or to give you the impression that you and your team are any good. Hoist a Lombardy Trophy or two and then you can act like you’re acting now. Until then… be happy you’re lucky and Shut Up!
