Hill's motion not exactly 'pretty'

The Detroit News reports Lions backup QB Shaun Hill has a different throwing motion than starter Matthew Stafford, and Hill's release hasn't been described as pretty. "I don't know if you're ever going to say effortless and Shaun Hill and a pass together," Schwartz joked. "It's no disrespect to Shaun. That's what he has, and he finds a way to get it done. Those guys that have come up through the bottom of the league, I have a lot of respect for those guys." The Lions acquired Hill, an eight-year veteran, from the 49ers for a seventh-round pick in the 2011 draft. Asked what he thought of Schwartz's analysis of his throwing style, Hill laughed and said: "It's pretty to me. I don't care what it looks like as long as it gets there. The ball gets where it needs to be and that's the name of the game. At the end of the day does your team have more points than the other team? That's all that matters to me."
