This is pretty messed up. I wonder what made him talk about this now?

Former Detroit Lions offensive lineman Lomas Brown has apologized for recent comments he made about Scott Mitchell, claiming he regrets intentionally missing a block decades ago that resulted in the quarterback suffering an injury.
Brown, currently an NFL analyst for ESPN, admitted during a radio interview this past Friday that he allowed a defender to hit Mitchell because he was frustrated with the struggling quarterback when the two were Lions teammates in 1994.
"We were playing Green Bay in Milwaukee," Brown said on ESPN Radio's "SVP & Russillo" show. "We were getting beat 24-3 at the time, and (Mitchell) just stunk up the place, throwing interceptions, just everything. I looked at Kevin Glover, our All-Pro center, and I said, 'Glove, that is it.' I said, 'I'm getting him out of the game.'
"So I gave it the set out, but I got the gator arms on the guy at the last minute. He got around me. He hit Scott Mitchell. He did something to his finger. I don't know what he did to it, but he came out of the game. Dave Krieg came into the game. We ended up losing that game 27-24."

I think it really sucks when fans cheer when their struggling quarterback goes down. But this is beyond that. A team is a team and you stick together no matter what.

Guess his conscience finally got the better of him.

This brings up a case earlier this year in a game with the Bengals and Raiders where OT Andrew Whitworth started fighting a couple of Raider D-linemen after one Raider made a blatant late hit on QB Andrew Dalton. Whitworth says he retailiated against the Raiders not because he was friends with Dalton, but it is his job as an O-lineman to protect the QB.

I don't care if Ryan Leaf is at QB and he stole your lunch, as an O-lineman you protect the QB because that is your responsibility on the field and you are being paid to do it. This act by Lomas was just cruel and goes totally against the team concept.

I didnt exactly get glee from his words. However, his speaking came out a whole lot different than the article. I read regret in his words but didnt really hear it in his voice.
The only conclusion I could come to is his confession is due to a desire for media attention.
It worked.
