Sunday’s Best – 10/16


COACHING STORIES

Detroit’s Jim Schwartz and Jim Harbaugh of San Francisco left the playing surface at Ford Field pushing and shoving at each other, while speaking in non-football terms that won’t be repeated here.

New Orleans head coach Sean Payton was wiped out by his own player – TE Jimmy Graham – on the sidelines, suffering a torn MCL and a broken left leg. He was expected to undergo surgery on Monday.

One Response to “Sunday’s Best – 10/16”

  • October 17, 2011  - Nathan says:

    I know Schwartz was upset with Harbaugh for the rough handshake but I think Schwartz had it coming. How can he demand respect from opponents if he doesn’t respect them…i.e. his reported comments at the end of the half and running up the score on the Chiefs in retaliation for the tampering punishment.
    If you want respect from your opponents in a gentleman’s game it helps if you respect them first.
    Schwartz is a whiney little baby who is throwing a fit because his team got beat. What a punk.
