      Lions Head Coach Jim Schwartz talks about expectations

      Lions Head Coach Jim Schwartz addressed the media Thursday in preparation for the start of training camp.

      Lions Head Coach Jim Schwartz addressed the media Thursday morning in preparation for the start of Lions training camp on Friday.

      After a 10-6 season last year that included a playoff appearance, many expect this 2012 squad to be as good or better.

      Schwartz said the Lions aren't thinking along those lines, just yet.

      "The playoffs are a long way away," he said.

      He would say that he hopes his team practices like a "playoff team" and meets like a "playoff team" and conducts themselves like a "playoff team." If they take a short-term approach like that, Schwartz said the rest will fall into place.
