D’Andre Swift says Bashaud Breeland had it coming on ‘angry run’

SideLion Report

D’Andre Swift won a violent collision with Vikings cornerback Bashaud Breeland back in Week 5, and the Lions’ running back says Breeland had it coming.

The Detroit Lions lost in heartbreaking fashion to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5. But running back D’Andre Swift had a couple highlights, including a run that won Good Morning Football’s Angry Runs” segment for the week.

In case you forgot about the play, here it is, narrated by GMFB co-host Kyle Brandt, the energetic host of the segment.

Swift’s “victim” was Vikings cornerback Bashaud Breeland. For a back who is dangerous in space and generally goes around, and occasionally over, defenders, it was quite a show of brute force. Breeland, even as a defensive back who’s next big hit will be his first, surely didn’t expect to be trucked like he was.

Swift spoke to Dan Miller of Fox2 in Detroit this week. He offered the backstory on the ‘angry run’.

“There was one play, I think it was a third down, he was holding onto my leg. I’m like, ‘Get off my leg.’ He said something crazy, so I’m like, OK. So when I caught the ball the next time and I seen it was him, I had made my mind up what I was going to do,”

“It happened real quick,” said Swift. “I didn’t really think too much of it during the moment. Just turned around (after the catch) and I knew what I was going to do. It kind of just happened.”

Swift acknowledged he likes making defenders miss…

“But when the opportunity presents itself,” he grinned, “I will do whatever needs to be done.”

Breeland got under Swift’s skin with some stuff after a play, and Swift took an opportunity too make him pay.
