Lions center Dominic Raiola is unhappy about the comments made by an anonymous NFL general manager.

Dominic Raiola is unhappy about the comments made by an anonymous NFL general manager who criticized the way the Detroit Lions are constructed while specifically speaking poorly about Ndamukong Suh, Cliff Avril and the entire defensive line.

Raiola told Dave Dye of Fox Sports Detroit:

"If they had any balls, they’d say who they were," Raiola said of the anonymous GM. "That’s kind of like a coward statement to me. Anonymous, that’s kind of whack. That fires me up. That’s taking a shot z at the Lions organization. That ain’t right. I’m going to say F ‘em. I can’t say the word. But I’ll say F ‘em."

Raiola has missed only four games on the offensive line in his 12 seasons with the Lions and has started every game in which he has played since 2002.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said he "wouldn't comment on anonymous things" instead deciding to focus on the number of wins the team will have after 16 games this season.

The Lions have opened the season 1-3 and have lost three straight after winning their season opener on Sept. 9. Detroit will travel to Philadelphia this Sunday to take on the Eagles.
