It was no wonder Lions brass gave Jim Schwartz an extension this past summer considering they made the playoffs last season after years of frustration and ineptitude. The extension came in the midst of a rash of arrests for Lions players, though, perhaps portending doom for the 2012 season.
Unless they go on a major run against the likes of Green Bay and Chicago, the Lions are likely out of the playoff picture this season. Schwartz has come under fire in Detroit for his team's poor performance, including an inability to get into the end zone on a consistent basis.
All things considered, it would be surprising to see Schwartz go after one subpar season. Unless he punches Jim Harbaugh at a Denny's or his team completely self-destructs the rest of the way, he should be back.
Odds of Departure: 10/1
