Jim Schwartz Discusses Jim Harbaugh Altercation

Jim Schwartz, head coach of the Detroit Lions, got into it with San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh after Sunday afternoon's loss. There's a good chance everyone reading this has already watched the altercation, but just in case, video of the incident is included in an earlier post.

The game itself -- a loss that ended that ended the Lions' chances at an undefeated season -- was regrettable itself, but the Schwartz said during his press conference on Monday that the aftermath was also something he regrets.

"It's a regrettable situation, particularly the fact that it detracted from what happened in the game," Schwartz told the Detroit News. "It is unfortunate that the end of the game overshadowed that fact that it was probably one of the best football games of the day yesterday between two teams that are 5-1 in the NFC and are both young and improving teams."

Luckily, it seems that the two coaches won't have any simmering bad blood between them for whenever the team's meet next.

"I saw him in the tunnel and spoke to him," Schwartz said. "Everything had died down and we said that we'll talk again soon."

Hopefully this will be the last time a coaches fight and a Lions' loss is mentioned on SB Nation Detroit.
