Jim Schwartz Says Jim Harbaugh Shoved, Swore At Him

Lions coach Jim Schwartz, who had to be separated from 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh following the 49ers' win at Ford Field on Sunday, explained during his post-game press conference why he was so upset. From John Niyo of the Detroit News:

"I went to congratulate Coach Harbaugh and got shoved out of the way," he said. "And then I didn't expect an obscenity at that point. So it was a surprise to me at the end of the game."

Later, he added, "I went to shake an opponent's coach's hand and obviously you win a game like that you're excited and things like that. But there's a protocol that goes with this league."

It's too bad the coaches weren't mic'd up so we could verify Schwartz's claim that Harbaugh swore, but as you can see in the GIF below, Harbaugh clearly didn't take time to exchange post-game pleasantries with Schwartz. Harbaugh admitted during his post-game presser that his "handshake was too hard," but he barely took the time to look Schwartz in the eye before giving him a forceful pat on the back:

"It was a very emotional game," [Harbaugh] said. "I was just really revved up. I shook his hand too hard, kind of a slap-grab handshake and that was on me, just a little too hard. And then there was some chest-bumping, I think. ... I don't know. But as I say, that was on me, the too-hard handshake."

Schwartz had to be annoyed at losing such a close game -- including the preseason, this was Detroit's first loss since Dec. 5, 2010 -- so it's not surprising he took umbrage at being brushed off. His reaction may have been over the top, and it'll almost certainly result in a fine from the NFL, but it likely earned him even more respect among Detroit's players.



VIDEO: Sean Payton Injury; Saints Coach Suffers Broken Knee And Tibia, Torn MCL On Sideline

It isn't just the NFL's players who are getting hurt in Week 6. Sean Payton's injured, too — and the Saints coach's injuries may be the most serious of the day in the league. Payton was injured when tight end Jimmy Graham was tackled into the sideline on this fourth quarter play.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Payton suffered an MCL tear and a tibia plateau fracture; that amounts to a broken knee and tibia, the sort of injury that would typically knock a player out for the season or year.

But Payton has continued to coach from the Saints sideline, sitting on a cart. It's a fair bet that Payton will say "You have to coach hurt," or something like it, after the Saints' NFC South tussle with the Buccaneers is over.

VIDEO: Jacoby Ford 101-Yard Kickoff Return Touchdown

Oakland Raiders kick return man Jacoby Ford showed off a little of the speed that former Raiders owner Al Davis prized so much among his skill players with a 101-yard kickoff return touchdown against the Cleveland Browns today.

Here is a video of Ford’s run and touchdown.

Notice how skillfully Ford maneuvers to stay in bounds, stepping lightly to keep his feet on the field. That touchdown gave Oakland a 14-7 lead over the Browns.

Ford, a second-year player out of Clemson, had a 101-yard kick return touchdown last year, and a total of three kick return touchdowns for the season. This was his first kick return touchdown of the 2011 season.

In addition to his return work, Ford has two catches for 16 yards in the game as a wide receiver. A win today would move the Raiders to 4-2 and tied with the Chargers, on a bye this week, for the AFC West lead.


VIDEO: Arrelious Benn 65-Yard Touchdown

Quarterback Josh Freeman hit wide receiver Arrelious Benn for a 65-yard touchdown that will surely make it on any highlight video from week 6 in the NFL. Speaking of the highlight video, here is video of Benn’s second quarter catch.

Benn’s touchdown gave Tampa Bay a 10-7 lead over the New Orleans Saints. Benn has two catches for a total of 70 yards in the game so far. Tampa has a nearly five minute edge in time of possession over the Saints, a key to beating one of the league’s most prolific offenses.

Tampa Bay is looking to get their season on track after a blowout loss to the red hot San Francisco 49ers last week. Last year Josh Freeman and the Buccaneers gave the league a mild surprise with successful, inspired play from a team used to struggling. Things have been more mixed this season.

Prior to this game, Benn had just 12 receptions on the season for 160 yards and one touchdown.


Jim Harbaugh On Postgame Confrontation: 'Handshake Was Too Hard'

Jim Harbaugh is already making waves in the NFL, both with his wins and his demeanor. And it's pretty great to watch unfold. Tell me you weren't entertained watching Harbaugh dance around like a fool after his San Francisco 49ers beat the Detroit Lions on Sunday. And tell me it wasn't entertaining to see his little "skirmish" with Detroit head coach Jim Schwartz.

So what happened? Handshake was too hard, Harbaugh said.

"I was really revved up. That wasn't me, just shook his hand too hard. ... That's on me. Handshake was too hard."

This quote is the best quote. Just picture Harbaugh, all revved up and intense, muttering that he shook Schwartz's hand with too much vigor.

In reality, Schwartz was probably upset with both the public celebration right in his face and the breach of decorum following the game. Coaches are supposed to shake hands and be civil, then go celebrate. Harbaugh did it all at once.

But does it matter? Harbaugh can dance if he wants to dance, and following a huge victory, he just wanted to get down with his bad self. Next time, though, be careful with the handshake, Jim.

VIDEO: Nate Burleson Touchdown Upheld, No 'Calvin Johnson Rule'

There may or not be an actual "Calvin Johnson Rule", but Nate Burleson at least won't have to worry about it. The Detroit Lions wide receiver made a nice catch in the back of the endzone that referees originally ruled incomplete because the ball came out when he tried to regain his balance. Thing was, Burleson had already made about 15 steps (yes, I'm exaggerating) before dropping the ball. It would have been a rather new low if replays had not given Burleson the score.


NFL Scores Week 6: Falcons Right Ship Against Panthers, 31-17

Atlanta shut down Cam Newton and rode Michael Turner for a much-needed win in Week 6.


Eagles Vs. Redskins: John Beck Replaces Rex Grossman After Four Interceptions

Rex Grossman threw his fourth interception of the game, this one picked off by Eagles defensive end Kenyon Coleman. Four interceptions will mark the end of the day for Grossman, and the beginning of the John Beck era in Washington. Here’s a video of Grossman’s pick.

Beck replaced Grossman to start the fourth quarter. Grossman finished his day with 143 yards on nine completions in 22 attempts to go with his four picks.

Many wondered if the Redskins wold start Beck to begin their season after Beck performed well in preseason play. Head coach Mike Shanahan opted to go with the veteran, and it looked like the right move after two wins to start the season, including an opening week defeat of the New York Giants. Prior to their week five bye, Grossman threw two picks against the lowly St. Louis Rams, which almost allowed them to come back in that game if not for their own incompetence.


VIDEO: Aaron Rodgers' 93-Yard TD To Jordy Nelson

It's good to be Aaron Rodgers. It's also good to be one of his receivers. It's best to own the Packers quarterback in Fantasy Football.

Green Bay is  in the process of putting the Rams away early on Sunday. Starting inside your own 10-yard line? No problem. Rodgers pump fakes and finds Nelson for the score, the fourth-longest pass in Packers franchise history. The touchdown gave Green Bay a 17-0 lead.

Here's video of the play:

Rodgers is having a great day, having already racked up 200+ yards passing and two touchdowns before the half.
