05:32 PM ET 02.10 | The Detroit Lions had high expectations entering the 2012 season, but a 4-12 season has left more questions than answers in the Motor City. With a lot of changes coming to the roster this offseason, some think the team is basically rebuilding. However, head coach Jim Schwartz is not one of them. ???I wouldn???t call it rebuilding,??? Schwartz said Thursday. ???There???s been a lot of other words used for it: 'reloading,' whatever you want to call it. But when you say 'rebuilding,' it sounds like you???re starting from the ground up.??? The Lions are in better shape now than when Schwartz took over the team, but there are a lot of hard decisions to make.

Laziness. When you copy and paste from other sources to FN, all ' show up as ???. SO whomever posted the story was too lazy to replace the apostophes.

If this team is rebuilding, then this coach should be fired immediately.

The tweaking that they need is to remove Jim Schwartz from the payroll. That oughta do it.

That's what happens when you copy & paste rather than type the article. And, since typing requires some skills, we have to put up with this. :-(

It doesn't really matter what we're doing, rebuilding or retooling, we know our fate. The results won't change much with our Lions.

Give it another 11 months or so. From what I remember reading Schwartz and his GM weren't getting along too well after the season ended. If next season goes as well as their last season, ti probably will be Schwartz's last.

We get what we pay for, and the interns probably work from Ramen Noodle soup; not much motivation there.

You'd have to finish "building" before you could be re-building.

Concur. Ditto for "reloading." Maybe he oughta call it "un-resliding." (And throw a couple of question marks in the quotes)

I thought last year was his last, but in any case, he's living on borrowed time. Still he's the Bears' best friend in Motown. Keep up the good work, Jim.
