Dialing in with Detroit

Posted by Scott Kegley on December 23, 2009 – 5:55 PM

As is customary, the Bay Area media got a chance to speak with with the head coach and a key player from the visiting Detroit Lions.  The two men on the conference call this week were Jim Schwartz and linebacker Julian Peterson.

Peterson knows the 49ers very well, having played in San Francisco from 2000-2005.  He also had plenty of opportunities to suit up against the 49ers while playing with their NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks from 2006-2008.  The Pro Bowl linebacker had positive things to say about Alex Smith, who Peterson said is playing better than he ever has.

Schwartz talked about some of the challenges his team has faced this season as well as his decision to give Drew Stanton his first-career start this Sunday against the 49ers.  The rookie head coach was also a candidate for the 49ers vacancy in 2005 when the organization ultimately hired Mike Nolan.  He described the 49ers coaching search as very professional and was pleased to get his first head coaching interview with San Francisco.

Make sure you listen to the conference calls with Peterson and Schwartz.

    WHAT MORE IS LEFT TO SAY AT THIS POINT! LETS SHOW DETROIT WHY WE ARE A PLAYOFF TEAM REGARDLESS OF WHAT OUR RECORD HAS TO SAY! WE LOST A LOT OF HEARTBREAKERS THIS SEASON. LETS AT THE LEAST FINISH STRONG.

    8-8 is a lot better than 7-9 which we were last year. We should be a lot better next year with the same OC in place. We need good drafting and free agency from management. We’ll see what happens.

    It is soooo difficult to watch the niners as long as “Mr No Confidence” is our QB. You know he’ll loose and everyone will make excuses and blame everyone else…..
