The biggest criticism of the Detroit Lions during Jim Schwartz' time as head coach was a lack of discipline on and off the field. That's something that new coach Jim Caldwell is addressing head on.
Per John Katzenstein of the Detroit News, Caldwell has been showing "Lions players clips of people related to sports who find trouble away from the field." Caldwell considers it to be "preventive medicine."
“We use those as examples to keep reminding them, hey, we’ve got to make good choices,” Caldwell said. “These are the kind of things that could happen. ... What we think happens is those young guys think a little bit more, they examine situations that they may be in and thus maybe it will keep them out of trouble.”
