Josh Sitton: Lions defense full of scumbags, Jim Schwartz is a d—

Josh Sitton PackersGreeen Bay Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton has added some spice to his team’s Thanksgiving Day game with the Detroit Lions.

During a radio interview on 1250 WSSP Tuesday, Sitton called the Lions defensive lineman a bunch of “dirtbags” and “scumbags,” and he called Jim Schwartz a d—.

Sitton’s comments came when he was asked whether he thought the Lions would take a penalty in exchange for putting a hard hit on quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who likely won’t be playing in the game anyway as he recovers from a broken collarbone.

“Absolutely,” Sitton said. “I don’t think there’s any question about that. They go after quarterbacks. Their entire defense takes cheap shots all the time, that’s what they do, that’s who they are. They’re a bunch of dirtbags, or scumbags. I mean, that’s how they play.”

Sitton has been with the Packers since 2008, so it’s easy to see what motivated his response. Two years ago, Ndamukong Suh stomped Evan Dietrich-Smith on Thanksgiving.

Sitton said he believes the attitude of the defense starts from the top with Schwartz.

“It starts with their frickin’ coach,” he said. “Starts with the head coach. Schwartz, he’s a (expletive), too, I wouldn’t want to play for him. … Starts with him, their D-coordinator and their D-line coach. They’re all just scumbags, and so are the D-line.”

This sort of honesty is nothing new for Sitton. You may recall after the “Fail Mary” game between the Packers and Seahawks last year, Sitton ripped Pete Carroll and Golden Tate and said they were full of crap.

Josh Sitton: Golden Tate and Pete Carroll are completely full of crap (Audio)

There are a lot of livid people in Green Bay and beyond after Monday night’s debacle of an ending in Seattle, but very few are more upset over the series of events than Packers guard Josh Sitton. Or, should we say, no one has been more willing to express their frustration than the big fella.

After leading the charge in blasting the NFL on Twitter after Green Bay’s loss, Sitton took it a step further on Tuesday during an interview with “The Jim Rome Show.” He said he would go on strike “just to end this crap” if the CBA would allow it. He also teed off on Golden Tate and Pete Carroll for refusing to admit they caught a break.
