Schwartz on OTA Day 5

Posted by Tara Altman on May 13, 2010 – 7:55 pm

Head Coach Jim Schwartz spoke with the local media today following the team’s fifth organized team activity (OTA) day.

In particular, Schwartz focused on the progression of second-year quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Schwartz: “That’s what we like about him. He does have a live arm. He’s feeling a little bit better and he’s progressing from just dropping and throwing to moving around a little bit and things like that. He’s still not 100 percent, but like i said before, from the time you come into this league, you’re probably never 100 percent again; but he’s been sharp. He’s been doing a lot of work with the receivers, with the running backs, (and) with the tight ends.”

    Go Lions!

    Team is looking up; four new starters on offense (maybe five if someone steps up for slot reciever) and five new starters on D-fense already (not counting ones still up for grabs.

    Just play hard; come outta the gate with a win vs Da Bears; which is perfect, last road win was against Da Bears.

    That will be the first of many nails in Lovie’s final coaching year.

    Also, a thumb in the eye to both former Lion’s coach’s that now report directly to Lovie.

    May The Schwartz Be With You… Go Lions!

    stafford will continue to improve and people got to realize before he took his first nfl snap he had to get that knee cleaned up but also could deal with it and get the exp he needed.So this year he will be full strength,but why does everybody think minesota will be the nfc team to beat? if farve doesn’t come back the o for them won’t be as effective farves exp is imeasureable so they will have a badass o will no qb to make as many plays that is why i say greenbay will be tough because they are a pretty good team with a qb that is read but it’s just my opinion lions hear comes the roar baby!!!

    I really don’t know which TEAM Is the TEAM to beat. I think that they are all the TEAMS to beat.
    I really Believe that,that first game out is the one to win!
    We need to take Chicago and then the Next and the Next and the Next and etc.
    Until we have won them all ONE GAME AT A TIME, ONE TEAM AT A TIME!

    All the usual paper lion stances being taken by both players and fans during the euphoric off-season. Nothing has changed the 2-30 Mayhew era until actual notches are put up in the win column. Talk is cheap, wins are what this fan seeks.
