Lions try to simulate field conditions in practice Friday

Posted by ttwentyman on December 30, 2011 – 6:05 pm

Lions coach Jim Schwartz has told the media time and time again that he doesn’t believe in simulating game conditions in practice.

Schwartz doesn’t pump in sound to prepare for road games or anything like that.

After taking the team outdoors for their last practice of the week Friday before heading to Green Bay, Schwartz said afterward it had nothing to do with the weather conditions, rather the field conditions.

“You know, we saw a lot of players slipping around when Chicago played up there last week and we wanted to go out and work that kind of timing and things like that, but the temperature was really irrelevant,” he said.

We weren’t trying to simulate cold and everything else, but there is something to that timing. I think that that was probably the biggest thing. It had nothing to do with the cold.”

The forecast for Sunday in Green Bay calls for temperatures in the lower 30’s with flurries and winds at 24 miles per hour.

    It seems to me that many of the Lions can’t stay on the field because of health issues. Delmas is always hurt, Fairly, the db’s the rb’s, etc, what is it – - – Are “we” just soft?
