Michael Schottey has been the "Fourth Jerk" unofficially since 2010, when his spot-on analysis of the Lions and the NFL became frequently heard on "The Knee Jerks."
His first Detroit sports memory?
"The first time I ever dropped the F-bomb, I was sitting about two
inches from the T.V. when Kordell Stewart chucked up the Miracle at
Michigan (1994). My father wasn't a huge football fan and didn't quite grasp
the situation, so I was grounded for quite a while after that"
Michael contributes his football talk all over the Net, but he's never as well-versed as when he's chatting up The Jerks on Monday nights, which he does several times every year.
He's married, has a small son who is absolutely adorable, and lives in Palm Coast, Florida.
