Jim Schwartz, Titus Young React To Crazy Finish Against Titans

The Detroit Lions and Tennessee Titans combined for a very exciting matchup on Sunday. The Titans walked away the overtime victors with a final score of 44-41. Detroit took it to overtime with one of the craziest comebacks you could dream up. Backup quarterback Shaun Hill – always considered a game manager who lacks a strong arm – threw two touchdown passes in the final 18 seconds of regulation.

The second of those touchdown passes was a Hail Mary to wide receiver Titus Young. The Detroit Free Press had some quotes from Young, in which he talks about what actually happened on the play:

"We practice that play all throughout camp. I saw Calvin running down the middle, and I knew everyone was going to try and get in front of him. He was our post-up guy – basically, the guy who was going to go for the ball. So I just put myself in the best position I could from the pile, and it just came to my hands."

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz had a quote of his own, in which he said he doesn't know if he's "ever been around one like that," in reference to crazy football games. Titans coach Mike Munchak said that it was hard to put the game into words, because "we both could've won in so many ways."

Detroit has now lost back-to-back games, but the feeling in the locker room could literally be anywhere at this point. How do you react after a game that was played in that fashion? The mood doesn't seem to be a somber one, but either way, they're sitting at 1-2 and need to get back in the win column sooner rather than later.
