The Lions were called for 11 penalties -- many of which came after the whistle -- for 107 yards during last Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints, as a national TV audience got a firsthand look at Detroit's at-times undisciplined play.
ESPN.com cited a source in reporting that Schwartz told his players during a Saturday night meeting before Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings that he wants them to play clean, smart football, and there is a zero-tolerance policy for those who don't comply.
According to ESPN.com, Schwartz said he would remove any Lion who picks up a post-whistle personal foul. The offending player will not be allowed to check back into the game.
NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported that tight end Brandon Pettigrew was docked $25,000 for pushing an official last Sunday. Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson was docked $7,500 for unnecessary roughness, and Lions return man Stefan Logan was docked $7,500 for unsportsmanlike conduct against the Saints.
