Wikipedia Already Calling Jim Schwartz “Former” Head Coach of Detroit Lions
As I tirelessly researched the Detroit Lions today before posting possibly the nicest collection of words I have put together about Jim Schwartz in a likely failed effort to play devil’s advocate, I found something amusing. Wikipedia is used by many as a source for information on people despite their occasional lack of truthfulness. I’ve been known to check it from time to time to learn about a player or coach’s past and often considered it semi reliable for historical — but not necessarily current — events. As I poked around on The Schwartz’s Wikipedia page, I noticed at the very top it said, “James J. Schwartz (born June 2, 1966) is the former American football head coach for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League.” As you might expect, I considered this to be pretty awesome.
According to Wikipedia, The Schwartz’s job is so far gone it’s already historical fact despite no word from the Lions whatsoever. I mean, they haven’t even played the final game of the season yet. It’s entirely possible that Wikipedia changes this swiftly before many of you read this, but I swear to Barry Sanders that as I’m writing this on December 26, 2013 at 3:30 PM, making sure to occasionally refresh, it still says “former.” It’s a Christmas sports comedy miracle! I only hope the next step is to prematurely predict where he is going next because I am super curious about that.
So what do you think. Is Schwartz’s inevitable firing so predictable that it’s worthy of a premature Wikipedia page update?
