Schwartz Announces Lions D-Lines Name: Silver Crush

Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz’s quest to nickname his team’s talented defensive line via Twitter ended today when he announced the winner: Silver Crush according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

“Acknowledges tradition/history of ‘Silver Rush’ with slight update,” Schwartz wrote, adding that about 100 people submitted the suggestion.

On Twitter, Schwartz said the Dis-Assembly Line was a close second. Of the Silver Crush, he wrote, “I think it fits but time will tell if it sticks … don’t want to force it.”
