10:59 AM ET 11.28 | Although his comments may not be the consensus around the league, Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz went on a local radio station on Tuesday to confirm that Ndamukong Suh's Thanksgiving kicking incident is still a non-issue in his mind. "There's nothing to address," Schwartz said, as reported by CBS Detroit. "It didn't warrant any kind of suspension." While he did not actually see the play live, Schwartz reviewed the tape numerous times after the game and immediately came to the conclusion that his star defensive tackle did not purposefully kick Schaub. "There is going to be a camera on him on every play," Schwartz said. "His head was looped in another direction, there's really no reason for people to believe (it was intentional.)"

We're done with this story. Stop with the reruns already.

I don't think Suh was necessarily trying to get Schaub in the junk, but he did intentionally try to kick him. That Schaub's nads were in the wrong place at the wrong time was just an added bonus for him.

There is more contact allowed in the Lingerie League than in the NFL.

Nothing to address ! Of course , why waste time talking to an empty head ?

November 28, 2012  11:26 AM ET

What - your leg doesn't defy the law of gravity and fall upward as you fall down? I'm shocked - shocked I tell you - that Schwartz - one of the bigger turds in the league - wouldn't have a **** chat with the incumbent mayor of Turdvill, Suh. Shocked.

LMAO @ comment #2 and #7....good ones.

November 28, 2012  11:35 AM ET

I LOL'd at this in particular, from Schwartz "...there's really no reason for people to believe (it was intentional.)" Yeah... Sure - no reason at all... Ask oh - I dunno... The rest of the league. The rest of the country. The rest of the NFL front office. Yup - he's just being picked on. Poor little Suh - lets all write songs about him now. Turd.

If I was the owner of the Lions I would definitely have some things to address with Mr. Schwartz . ie. How is it that our record is what it is and yet we have committed the majority of our cap for years to come to three players?

Maybe nothing to address with the player...

But - plenty to address with the coach.


Dude is 22-37 with one playoff appearance and this season has to be considered a "disappointment".

November 28, 2012  12:03 PM ET

Nothing here at all. The guy has had one penalty all year according to the Detroit News.

November 28, 2012  12:07 PM ET

ZERO accountability with this team!

would have to agree 100%........the guy can't coach ,can't disciplen his players because I think he's scared of Suh ........how long can an owner take this train wreck before he stops the train and lets someone off .....Coach Schwartz being the first.

Donkey Kong Suh will probably severely injure a player during a game one day.

"Schwartz reviewed the tape numerous times after the game and immediately came to the conclusion that his star defensive tackle did not purposefully kick Schaub."

Ignoring reality seems to be a chronic problem in Detroit.

"Cannot play with him. Cannot win with him. Cannot coach with him. Can't do it."

Can you blame them? The only thing worse than not having a talented team is having an under achieving talented team. If they got the right coach in there, this team could be a regular playoff contender.

In Suh's personal lottery, he picked the bonus ball.
