Charles Barkley: Detroit Lions 'have no idea how to play football'

Erik Horne Published: January 2, 2014

For NBA Hall of Famer and TNT studio analyst Charles Barkley the Detroit Lions are a lot like those underachieving NBA teams loaded with talent.

On a recent appearance on The Rich Eisen Podcast, Barkley called the Lions "the perfect example of a team that's got a bunch of talent that don't have no clue, any clue, how to play football."

He's no football expert, but Barkley isn't completely wrong. The Lions just fired head coach Jim Schwartz after going 29-48 in five seasons with just one playoff appearance.
