Apparently Carson Butler likes to fight with his own team as well.
The Lions made plenty of mistakes: turnovers, penalties, dropped passes. Schwartz also had to deal with a pregame fight between tight end Carson Butler and defensive end Dewayne White, who tangled during warmups.
"I've never seen that before," Schwartz said. "The thing I like about it is they were competitive and going hard. I came in and said, 'Some of y'all thought the game started at 7 o'clock instead of 7:30.' Obviously that's something that shouldn't happen and it's already been addressed."
White hasn't put the skirmish behind him yet.
"We'll probably have to go at it one more time when we're not playing a game -- next week sometime," he said. "There's going to be bad blood between us."
Was that RR's fault too?
