Jim Schwartz's Biggest Mistakes as the Detroit Lions Head Coach

2012 has been quite a ride for head coach Jim Schwartz and the Detroit Lions.

After a short successful glimpse of the 2011 playoffs, Schwartz has earned himself a spot on the hot seat. Since finishing the season with a 4-12 record, the Detroit franchise has fallen back to the shameful label of the "same old Lions".

Schwartz's 22-41 four-year record with the Lions has been disappointing, but going beyond the numbers is alarming. The way the Lions have responded and act under Schwartz is more disappointing than the record itself.

While Schwartz is on the hot seat, it's too soon to talk about replacing him. Firing a coach who managed to lead a franchise to the playoffs for the first time since 1999 a year later would be blasphemous.

With that said, Schwartz is on a tight leash. After the immature antics on and off the field from the team, one can't help but wonder if Schwartz really has control of the Lions.

Here are the biggest mistakes from Schwartz that have lead to this position.
