Lions’ coach Jim Schwartz: not a Jew

The Detroit Lions lost again yesterday.

That’s not really news. It’s pretty much been the status quo for 21 months, save for last week. But what is news, for those keeping score, is that the Lions’ recent troubles can’t be blamed on a Jew. (Amazing.) As Denny Green would say: Jim Schwartz is not he we thought he was.

From Jew or Not Jew?

most importantly, is Jim Schwartz Jewish?

In short, no. No he is not (the Schwartz son named Christian is kind of a giveaway). Pretty disappointing, honestly. We had high hopes for a prominent success and ended up with nothing.

Kind of like every season for the Detroit Lions, right?
