There’s no love lost between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions, specifically in the trenches.

In a rivalry already filled with stomps, spats and verbal jabs, Packers left guard Josh Sitton made his feelings known about the Lions, head coach Jim Schwartz and the team’s defensive line.

During an interview with 1250 WSSP in Milwaukee, Sitton was asked by former Packers running back Gary Ellerson, one of the show’s hosts, about if the Lions would try to take out Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers if he were to play on Thanksgiving.

Sitton replied in the affirmative.

“Absolutely. I don’t think there’s any question about that,” Sitton said. “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 dirt bags or scumbags.

“That’s how they play. That’s how they’re coached. That starts with their fricking coach. Starts with the head coach, Schwartz, he’s a (expletive), too. I wouldn’t want to play for him. It starts with him and their d-coordinator and their d-line coach, they’re all scumbags and so are the d-line.”
