Lions Schwartz Not Commenting On Future

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz won't comment on his future in Detroit. Reports have surfaced saying the team could fire Schwartz if they miss the playoffs. Detroit, now 7-7, has lost four of its past five games. The Lions have also dropped to third place in the division. On Tuesday, Schwartz said everybody has a job to do, and he doesn't think it's anybody's job to worry about anything other than getting ready for the Giants this Sunday. Schwartz, who was hired by the Lions in 2009, also said "I understand you guys have job to do, and this is stuff you guys want to talk about and stuff like that. That's fine," he said. "But I don't think it does any good for me or our team to let that be the focus to continue to comment on that. So I think I'll respectfully decline to keep going to the same place with those.
