"We do a lot of things, whether its a guest speaker or a movie clip," Schwartz said. "He showed the movie clip and then he went through some of the things that you are going to face. It's the same deal. He was told that defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham spilled the beans about Schwartz showing the Lions a clip from the movie "Saving Private Ryan" on the eve of their win against the Vikings last week. "Jim did a great job the night before," Cunningham said. It was prophetic because the Lions took some heavy fire early in the game notably a 78-yard touchdown run by Adrian Peterson on the first play and had to fight back.
