The Detroit Lions need a new coach--an NFL rulebook coach. There was the intentionally running out-of-bounds penalty that negated a Lions' first-and-goal. There was the crazy unsportsmanlike penalty where a Lion said something about Jadeveon Clowney's mother, saddling the Lions with an impossible first-and-25. This week, on Thanksgiving Day, in front of a national TV audience, it was the rare "consecutive timeout penalty" that cost the Lions--leading to the game-winning FG in their 16-14 loss to the Bears. Remember Jim Swartz on Turkey Day in 2012 flagged for throwing the challenge flag on a scoring play that wasn't a scoring play? Google that one.
