04:57 PM ET 10.26 | In 2011, the Detroit Lions put together the franchise's best season since 1995 with a 10-6 record, and lost to the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the playoffs. But with a 13-7 loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday night, the 2012 Lions are now 2-4 and in last place in the NFC North division. With lots of ground to make up, head coach Jim Schwartz told WXYT in Detroit that the Lions "can't overreact" to the Monday night loss, because the reason for the loss is obvious. The Lions' lost despite outgaining the Bears 340-296 because of four turnovers, three of which came in the red zone. "I think that you can overreact, but you need to identify it," Scwhartz said, "players need to identify it, and you need to take steps to correct it and you need to move on to the next one."

2-4 in the stacked NFC North isn't just a slow start. It's a path to golfing in January.

NFC North isn't *that* stacked. Minnesota is getting exposed right now. Chicago and Green Bay are for real, and the Lions realistically need to punch out an 8-2 record the rest of the way to even have a shot at the playoffs this year.

Yes, but he didn't overreact to a Suh stomp. You have to pick what you want to be concerned about.
