The Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions are playing the latest game in their rivalry on Thanksgiving Day. The Packers will be with out quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and offensive lineman Josh Sitton thinks that is probably for the best because they take cheap shots. Sitton also took a shot at Lions head coach Jim Schwartz.
“They go after quarterbacks, their entire defense takes cheap shots all the time,” Sitton told Sports Radio 1250 in Milwaukee. “That’s what they do, that’s who they are. They’re a bunch of dirtbags or scumbags. I mean, that’s just how they play. That’s how they’re coached. That starts with their frickin’ coach. That starts with their head coach, Schwartz. He’s a d–k, too. I wouldn’t want to play for him. It starts with him and their D-coordinator and their D-line coach. They’re all just scumbags and so are the D-line.”
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy doesn’t have a problem with what Sitton said.
“I heard about them,” McCarthy said, via Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Really, when matters like that happen with the media, the only thing I ask our players is to not create questions for everybody else in the locker room. Those comments did not create that.”
