Lions say Suh tried to overthrow coaches in locker room


05:32 PM ET 02.03 | The Detroit Lions were a bit of a mess in 2013 and that had a lot to do with the way they were coached -- and the ways that they weren't. Jim Schwartz lost his job at the end of the season but teammates of Ndamukong Suh are saying that he might have been the root cause for most of the locker room mayhem this past year. According to Heath Evans, who spoke on Detroit radio recently, a few of Suh's teammates believe that he was trying to get authority above that of the coaches in the locker room, including the authority of Jim Schwartz.

Deja vu all over again.

As a Packers fan, I'm grateful that the Lions didn't hire Mike Zimmer because he would have put an end to that ****. For that matter, so would Pettine that the Browns hired. Instead, they hired Jim Caldwell who was successful in Indy because Peyton and other Colts leaders were a positive influence on the field and the locker room. Suh is going to walk all over Caldwell and ownership will let him because of the size of his contract. If Caldwell isn't successful correcting Stafford's reads and sloppy mechanics, the Lions will revert to being bottom dwellers in the NFC North.

There's no such thing as trouble players, but only crappy coaches

But yesterday there was a story (not here) how all his teammates were defending him against allegations he was a huge disruption. So what's the deal with this team? Seems more a mess than anyone thought. They can't seem to get their stories straight. then again..who cares???

Maybe Suh knew Schwartz was a piss poor leader... Maybe Schwartz is behind this article.

I don't buy it.

Suh just like a big ole Teddy Bear.

Wait.... "FanSided" ?

*Logs off*

....I guess if the league won't let Suh abuse opposing QBs, he might as well beat up on his own coaches....

Wait until Suh finds out who these unnamed players are.

The Schwartz was NOT with him

Who didn't know that Suh was the biggest idiot in the NFL? If a coach can't put a muzzle on this moron than they should bite the bullet and trade the ****.

"Suh tried to OVERTHROW coaches"
...Kind of like Stafford does to his receivers, at least when when he's not one-hopping it to them

Their fate is sealed, they are doomed to 4 years of being bottom dwellers.

There is a reason prisoners are not issued keys, can't have the inmates running the jail. If you sign on with the lions, first, you just signed up for prison and second, Suh is the warden.

Wait until Suh finds out who these unnamed players are.

He'll accidentally drop his Hairdryer in their jacuzzi .
