Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said all three of the teams running backs, Reggie Bush, Mikel Leshoure, and Joique Bell, will have a role in 2013. "Joique runs the ball a little bit different than Mikel, but they both run a little bit different and present different things than Reggie, and I think that combination of guys is good. People like to say running back by committee and things like that, but each guy will have a role. There will be plenty of touches on the offense for everybody."

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz responded to Titus Young's twitter comments about quitting if he does not get the ball more. "Every offensive player wants the football and there's good ways to go about trying to get that done," Schwartz said. "This is a pretty good example of a not so good idea. Guys are responsible for what they post, what they say. You wear your uniform 24 hours a day now, everybody's aware of that. We obviously still got some ground to cover there"

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said the team is not going to change their defensive scheme to a 3-4 defense. Schwartz also said he did not see the "wide-9" defensive end alignment as a problem last year. "We didn't have enough sacks this year," Schwartz said. "To be able to blame that on the Wide 9, the people that say that really don't know what they're talking about. Every team in league, when it's third down, lines up exactly the way we do it. It puts guys in the best position to rush the passer."

Detroit Lions WR Titus Young could return to the team next season, according to head coach Jim Schwartz. "There's a chance," Schwartz said. "There is a process involved there. He's a very talented player and obviously made a difference when he was on the field and it, particularly with the way the injuries went with Nate Burleson and then later (Ryan) Broyles, it affected the team not having him out there." Young got sent home for behavioral issues and was eventually placed in Injured Reserve late in the 2012 season.

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said he and general manager Martin Mayhew have a fine relationship, despite reported tension between the two. Schwartz said he did not have an issue with the team collecting many players with character issues. "It couldn't be further from the truth," Schwartz said.

We are all in this together and we are all very determined to get us back on the right track."
