12:03 PM ET 12.30 | After making the playoffs for the first time in 10 years last season, the Detroit Lions (4-11) have underachieved this season, needing a win over theChicago Bears in Sunday's season finale to avoid closing the season on an eight-game losing streak. That performance, combined with several high-profile off-field incidents, could have Jim Schwartz in danger of losing his job despite being the coach that led them to that playoff appearance just a season ago. Chris Mortensen of ESPN.com reported that concerns about the team's 'culture' under Schwartz could prompt the Ford family, who owns the team, to make a coaching change in the offseason.

And I wonder if they realized the folly in hanging on to him so long.

I liked Schwartz and some of the personnel he brought in, but then Fairly got stupid and Suh let his antics get in the way of his game. One more year for Schwartz to turn it around. If not, he's done.
