Should Detroit Lions Coach Jim Schwartz keep his job?

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - -The Chicago Bears beat the Detroit Lions 26-24 on Sunday.  The Lions (4-12) lost their last eight games and turned the ball over four times in the finale. Calvin Johnson fell short in his attempt to become the first player with 2,000 yards receiving in a season.

Detroit's Matthew Stafford went 24 of 42 for 272 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. He finished the season with an NFL-record 727 pass attempts, surpassing Drew Bledsoe's mark of 691 from 1994. Stafford fell short of a second consecutive 5,000-yard season, finishing at 4,967 through the air.

It was a surprising fall for the Lions, who made the playoffs last season for the first time in a dozen years. Coach Jim Schwartz wouldn't address speculation about his job status."The thing I'm most concerned with is getting this team back to where we all want it to be," he said. "I'm not proud at all of our record."

And it was not all good news for Chicago.  Despite their victory, the team did not make the playoffs.
