Schwartz upset over five more personal fouls

Apparently Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz had seen enough as his team drew five more personal foul penalties Thursday night in a preseason win over the New England Patriots.

When Willie Young pointed his finger at Patriots QB Tom Brady and drew a 15-yard penalty, Schwartz reacted by benching him.

The five personal fouls Thursday night gives the Lions eight personal foul penalties in two preseason games, as they had three in their opening loss to Cleveland.

Defensive linemen Nick Fairley and C.J. Mosley also were called for late hits, while tight end Joseph Fauria had a chop block, and linebacker Rocky McIntosh was whistled for unnecessary roughness.

All those players stayed in, but Young was removed from the game.

“We didn’t want any more personal fouls,” Schwartz told the Detroit Free Press. “We had enough of it. We had enough of it after two.”

It will be interesting now to see if the league office has had enough of it as well, as some of Lions players will likely find themselves a little lighter in the wallet for their actions.
