Matt Patricia tells reporter to 'sit up' during press conference

Lions seeking mid-round pick for Golden Tate why the Eagles should make the call

Lions seeking mid-round pick for Golden Tate why the Eagles should make the call

The reporter then stated his question again - it's unclear whether he adjusted his posture - and Patricia gave a lengthy explanation for why the Lions traded Tate.

A Detroit reporter was in the middle of asking the Lions coach about the Golden Tate trade when Patricia interrupted and asked him to stop slouching...

Patricia: "Ah, well, you know".

The reporter asked Patricia, "Why do you think this move makes your franchise better?"

He may have to do it one more time though as he is now in line to start Game 7 at Fenway Park, if the series makes it that far. Playing at LA, the Red Sox lose their DH ability and Martinez will have to be in the starting lineup given how hot he is.

Reporter: "Okay. Why do you feel like this move makes your franchise better?" After a reporter asked Patricia a question, instead of calmly answering it like any other normal coach would, he chose to throw a tantrum and freak out on the guy because of the way he was sitting. He spent his first four seasons in Seattle before moving to the Lions as a free agent, signing a five-year, $31 million contract in 2014. "They are not easy decisions, and they are certainly hard decisions", Patricia said. It's more about players, it's about relationships.

"We know this is an incredibly smart guy and an incredibly hard worker", Roseman said of Tate.

"That's a relationship that will go a lot longer than football and last a lot longer than football".
