Stafford Placed on Injured/Reserve; Lions Sign QB Ramsey

Posted by Chrissie Wywrot on December 26, 2009 – 10:23 pm

The Detroit Lions announced Saturday that they have officially placed rookie QB Matthew Stafford on Injured/Reserve.

Head Coach Jim Schwartz confirmed Thursday that the team would place Stafford on I/R after team doctors confirmed he wouldn’t be ready to play in Detroit’s final game of the season against Chicago.

Since Stafford will not be ready to play, the Lions will take the opportunity to perform a minor procedure on the quarterback’s knee.

Schwartz: “It’s not a repair, it’s not anything other than a clean out because it’s irritated. It’s stuff that you manage, but one thing you want to do is to put that behind you. You don’t have to want to manage that in the spring, next year, or further along in your career.”

With Stafford on I/R, the Lions signed QB Patrick Ramsey to the active roster.

    Good pick up! My father inlaw is a Redskins fan! I know alot about Patrick Ramsey! He played pretty well in DC and has alot of experience! Im glad to see the Lions finally get on the ball with a great team! Hope the best against the 49ers! now we have 2 veteran QBs incase Stanton has some rough bumps on the road. Infact i think we should keep Patrick Ramsey, Daunte Culpepper, Matt Stafford and Drew Stanton for the 2010 season!

    I think that it is a very good idea to put Mathew Stafford on injured reserve.
    However what this Drew guy is saying I couldn’t disagree with MORE.
    IT IS VERY MUCH the BAD IDEA to keep so many QBs on one TEAM!
    And a VERY BAD idea to keep to many veteran QBs on this TEAM at this Time!
    In some cases I might think that,that would be a great idea. BUT,not with this TEAM!
    There can only be one Number ONE QB on a TEAM!
    That was the problem with the TEAM ALL YEAR!
    SOME PLAYERS wanted to play for Dante and some for Mathew. And some didn’t care who was the QB they are the real football players who just wanted to win.
    YOU can tell them apart from the ones that were partial to one and not the other.
    Cakvin wants to win. So does Kevin Smith,and Muarice Morris, Pettigrew, Domanick Riaola, Gosder,and others.
    Anyways there has to be only ONE NO. ONE QB.
    Compitition is good for a lot of positions but not QB!
    And If mathew is going to be the guy then thats the way it should be.
    IN fact I would say that we shouldn’t have any veteran QBs on this TEAM!
    Just young guys that are going to be around for a while. And that know that Stafford is the QB.
    Because if this TEAM Keeps playing the QB around the rosie they will never be any good.
    They have been doing that for years and years.
    JOE MONTANA, JOHN ELWAY,BRET FAVRE,TROY AIKMAN,DAN MARINO AND ON AND ON AND ON DIDN’T HAVE TO COMPETE WITH OTHER QB’S FOR THE JOB EVERYONE KNEW THE JOB WAS THIERS EVERY YEAR!
    LIONS!
    GET RID OF THE BLOWHARD VETS!

    I do not know how Dre Bly has been playing or if he is still playing close to the level that he played while he was here BUT,if he is we should try to get him Back!

    I agree with the Stafford position. No sense in him getting hurt this early. The lions are finally building a great team with their acquisitions this year! Keep Pettigrew, C. Johnson, B. Johnson, Delmas for sure…he is only gonna get better by far. But we definitely need to improve the offensive line in the off season. As for defense, we need to pick up Nebraska’s Nakamung Suh. Our defense could build around these rookies and Suh would only become a pro-bowl caliber player if not the best all around pick coming up. I say push for Suh in the first pick spot and look to lock him in for a looooong contract!

    I agree with Drew up to a point. We should keep only three of the QBs – Stafford, and the best two of the other three. The only exception to that would be if someone like Central MI’s LeFevour is available in a later round – then we should draft him and only keep one of the others.
    As for Don’s comments, there needs to be competition for the backup only (assuming that Stafford is the man).

    I’m curious what the Lions scouting brass has on their big board for DT. Suh or McCoy. The only reason the Lions have been in games is soley correlated to their ability to stop the run. You need to stop the run but you must also rush the passer as a good DT. Suh or McCoy will provide a constant motor on the QB. Therefore our first choice will be a DT.
    Our second round choice might be a running back if one is available. The Lions need a one two punch at running back and maybe Javid Best might be available. This means the lions have to pick up an extra second round pick because the left OT must be addressed. Picking up a guard later in the draft to fill in for Ramirez or Loper will help but won’t be a fix. I would put Backus at RT and CG at guard picking up an upgrade left OT in the early second round.
    Our third round must be a CB. The Lions must also address a WR to help CJ with constant double coverage.
    So What do you think Mr. Mayhew?

    This doesn’t have anything to do with Stafford being on injured reserve or about the stupid pick up of another LOSER OLD QB THAT MAYHEW OR Shack has brought in to try to Rehab.
    This has to do with MR.FORD the Owner of this TEAM that sits there and lets incompatant People make decisions for his football TEAM.
    Well that’s another Subject that I will be sure to talk about Later.
    This has to do with that Discusting Call by the REFS in last Sundays game at Candlestick Park.
    Where by the Officials or REFS take a look at a PLAY be the other TEAM that the QB was CLEARLY over the LINE of Scrimage And THEY actually LOOK at the PLAY and SAY that it STILL STANDS!
    IT was Clearly a LIE BY the Officials. AND these Officials are DIRTY ROTTEN LIEING CHEATERS that should be fired and NEVER REF another game ever again.
    When OUR 12 year OLD Sons and Daughters KNOW that the Officials are cheating and no one does anything about it then that is just too much.
    THIS WAS A DIRTY CALL and everyone including the children know that it was.
    And even though that was not the REASon that we lost the GAME (OR WAS IT BECAUSE IT TOOK AWAY ALL OUR MOMENTEM)!
    This has been going on for years and YOU MR> FORD DON”T and HAVENT done anything about it!
    Because of these rules in the NFL standing for (Not Frikin Legit) that the coach’s and players can’t do or say anything about the refs. and there cheating calls then that Means that this FALLS on the owners DESK!
    And YOU havent DONE anything about it in all these years!
    WE have had TWO of these type of instances this YEAR where the refs LOOKED at the PLAY and clearly walked away giving the other TEAM the Benafit and LIEING about the CALL!
    This has gone on for years and YEARS and has GONE ON LONG ENOUGH!
    YOU want the FANS TO come and watch YOUR NFL Games Then you better make sure that these games are on the Level!
    Because what we have SEEN and even our children have seen it isn’t on the Level!
    When KIDS are watching and LOOK UP at the GROWN UP’s and ask why did they LIE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED.
    What do you want us to tell the children about how this NFL?
    And allways the NFL comming out and saying that they want thier Players to act accordingly and yet they allow the REFS to cheat at every chance that they get.
    The Refs should be FIRED and Never allowed to ref another game ever! anywhere and especialy not at any childrens game.
    They Clearly LIED about the call, JUST LIKE they did about the CALL on Calvin when we played MInnasota and Calvin got knocked out on the play and it was clearly another LIE Giving the call to the Vikings.
    EVEN the Minnasota people said that it was a BAD CALL.
    BUT what was done about it? NOTHING!
    IF YOU WANT FANS YOU BETTER GET THIS CLEARED UP or forget this League.
    Don’t try to say that these REFS don’t cheat andthrow games.
    The Basketball REF told it the way it is.
    AND the LIONS havent won in 50 YEARS YEA right it’s a legit league allright.

    Your right don we should atleast had that win! It was total bs, calvin was already down b4 the ball was tooken out of calvin johnson hand! somebody must of been paid off for that kinda bs to happen!!! rod marnelli and mayhew were scamming the lions! ppl were getting lots of money to see the lions get robbed and raped!

  9. By Drew on Dec 29, 2009 | Reply

    yeah but the only way the lions have a fair chance is if matt stafford or daunte culpepper get real good real fast or if patrick ramsey plays like he did in his first 3 years with the redskins! Lets face it we havent had a superior QB since Scott Mitchell (90s) and Greg Landry(late 70s and early 80s) and jon kitna did ok in 2007 (7W – 9L), but look why all the other teams are so great bc they franchised there QB and RB big time! Lions RB Maurice Morris (2 TD), Kevin Smith (4 TD,IR) and *Aaron Brown( 1 TD) are average, *Matt Stafford (13 pass TD, 2 rush TD & 20 INT, IR), Patrick Ramsey( just signed) are decent, Daunte Culpepper(1 TD & 5 INT) was once a great QB needs to get with it! and Drew Stanton(0 pass TD, 1 rush TD & 6 INT) should just be traded for a draft pick or a decent veteran that can help this team win! our WRs B. Johnson(2 TD), C. Johnson (4 TD) & D. Northcutt (1 TD) are great! TE W.Heller (3 TD), C Fitzsimmons (IR), M.Matthews( recently signed) and *B. Pettigrew(2 TD, IR) are decent! The offense needs the most work, Defense is great, and majorly improved! We need to do go for the most talented in the draft again! not focus on 1 position, WR and DB are our best postions so just about everything else we need to draft first! let not worry about what we have now, lets worry about filling in those blank spots on the roster! we got cut guys that arent panning out (offense) exception to the few veterans and CJ, and keep our Defense up to par, keep Anthony Henry, Phillip Buchannon, William James, Marvin White, Ko Simpson, Marquand Manuel, Demarcus Faggins, Louis Delmas, Daniel Bullocks, Jack Williams, Larry Foote, Julian Peterson, Ernie Sims, DeAndre Levy, Vinny Ciurciu, Grady Jackson, Turk McBride, Dewayne White, Cliff Avril, Jason Hunter, Dizon Jordan, Kevin Hobbs and Eric King are all talented players that must stay on the team until they retire! Great Job on the 2009 Defense big improvement over the 2008 season

    I don’t know drew I cannot figiure out from what you are saying? What are you Saying?
    YES, There are a lot of good men on the D-Fence.
    William James,Marvin white, KO Simpson,marquand manual,Louis Delmas,Danial Bullocks,Jack williams seemed pretty good,Larry Foote,Julian Peterson,Ernie Sims,DeAndre Levy,Vinny Ciurciu,Grady Jackson,Turk McBride,Dewayne White Has been good since he came here but he is allways hurt.Cliff Avril,Jason HUNTER is GREAT.Dizon Jordan,? Kevin Hobbs has had some shinning Moments.Eric King.
    Weather or not they all should stay on the TEAM? NO I don’t think so.
    Who shouldn’t be there? I don’t know that either. All I know is that there have been more men through this city then I bet most of the other cities that have football TEAMS and yet we have TWO WINS!
    WHY?
    Because someone isn’t doing their JOB!
    WHY is it that MOST of the TEAMS in this LEAGUE have at the very least Normal seasons? BUT, not this TEAM!
    50 years of loosing.
    NO other TEAM has that record.
    BUT, this one does.
    HEY, I will shut UP!
    do my very best to.
    GIVE these FANS a winner. GIVE us a winner.
    Schwartz says that all the time. The bottom line is winning.
    IS it? I don’t think that anyone in this town has believed that for years and years. And I’m not sure if they do now or not.
    If that was the way this city really believed This TEAM would have been gone LONG ago.
    WE have stood behind this TEAM all the way for many many years.
    BUT, people get tired of hearing your excuses no matter what they are.
    And after a while they get to where it doesn’t matter any more.
    HEY whoever the players are Doesn’t Matter? WHAT Matters BOTTOM LINE IS winning. AT Least ONE SuperBOWL IN 50 years? NOPE NOT this year?
    THE division? NOPE not this year?
    8 and 8? NOPE not even 8 and 8. NOT this year.
    EVER? ?????????????????
    Buying TICKETS? NOT NEXT YEAR!
    And the way that the League is going like back to two hand touch?
    And YES, THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG with the REfereeing in this League!
    THE FACT ALONE THAT NO ONE CAN QUESTION ANYTHING THAT THEY DO SAYS IT ALL!

    Anthony Henry and Phillip Buchannon are great to don!! getting Anthony Henry( 44 tackles, 7 pass def, 2 INT) and trading Jon Kitna( Injured and no wins in 2008) was a good move! and picking up Phillip Buchannon(42 tackles, 5 pass def,1 sack, and 2 FF) was worthy as well! considering that they only started about half the time or they were inactive, still a huge improvement from 2008! But you are right the best we ever did excluding 1957 Championship game, was 1991 and we beat 1 team in the post season but never took it to the superbowl! All these other teams that are in the play offs have the best QBs in the league our rivals(packers,vikings & bears) are way better then our team in offense, they all have pro QBs like vikings = farve, packers = rodgers, bears = cutler, LIONs = Matt stafford(13 passTDs. 2 rush TDs, 20INTs), daunte culpepper (1TDs, 5INTs) , drew stanton, (0 passTDs, 1 rushTD & 6INTs).IF we dont do anything about our QB situation and our RB situation we are going to lose horriabley again in 2010! Keep the defense, keep the veteran WRs, Johnson, Johnson & Northcutt, keep Jon jansen, Maurice Morris, Kevin Smith and maybe a few others ( Dan Loper, Stephen Peterman, Patrick Ramsey) Bottom line is im sick of our team fighting not to finish in last place almost every year! I will admit its much better then 2008, but 2 wins should be our worst year not our best year!

    I’ll tell you what I thought about at the beggining of this year with the Talent that we have been talking about Henry,Buchanon,Loper,Janson,Maurice Morris Kevin Smith.
    Well the whole TEAM.
    And Mathew STafford I have been watching for a long time now.
    AND he isn’t the Problem.
    I’ll explain in a bit.
    I thought that this TEAM and I still believe that they could have done what I’m going to say that I thought they could do.
    I trully Believed that with the TAlent that we had on this TEAM that we could have gone 10 AND 6.
    REALY,it could have been done with this group.
    AND with Mathew stafford this year.
    BUT, the TEAM allowed themselves to be SPLIT!
    THIS was the PLAYERS FAULTS!
    Because they watch too much NFL network probably and got caught up in all that Dante should be the QB garbage!
    Dante should have been the QB if the Coaching STAFF thought that he should be the QB!
    AND that is not how the Coach’s saw it!
    ANd I trully believe that some players wanted Dante and some wanted Mathew!
    Some guy’s wouldn’t catch the Ball for Mathew and some guy’s wouldn’t catch the ball for Dante!
    AND that is what HURT this TEAM and that’s what I’m talking about there can only BE ONE REAL QB on a TEAM!
    WHEN JOHN ELWAY WAS THE QB THERE WAS NO COMPITITION?
    WHEN JOE MONTANA WAS QB THERE WAS NO COMPITION?
    NOT WITH TROY AIKMAN,BRETT FARVE,JOE FLACCO,THE NEW QB FOR THE PACKERS,DONAVIN MCNABB. BEFORE HE GOT CAUGHT FIGHTING DOGS THE OLD QB FOR THE FALCONS(I’LL THINK OF HIS NAME.
    IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO THE QB IS.IF YOUR GOING TO HAVE A WINNING QB THEN HE HAS TO BE THE GUY! NO ONE ELSE! NO ONE! PERIOD!
    THAT HAS USUALLY BEEN THE PROBLEM HERE IN DETROIT ALLWAYS, WITH JUST ABOUT EVERY QB THAT WE HAVE HAD THERE HAS ALLWAYS BEEN A CONTRAVERSY ALONG WITH THE NEW QB! IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN HIM THEN DON’T DRAFT HIM!
    IF THEY DIDN’T BELIEVE IN STAFFORD THEN THEY SHOULD OF LET ANOTHER ONE OF OUR RIVALS HAVE HIM SO THAT HE COULD BEAT US WITH SOME TEAM THAT REALY KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND WHAT THEY HAVE!
    THIS KID ISN’T JUST SOME OTHER QB?
    HE IS LIKE CALVIN,SOMETHING EXTRA SPECIAL! SOMONE THAT ONLY COMES ALONG EVERY TEN YEARS OR SO.
    AND SO FAR THIS YEAR THIS PHENOM HAS GOTTEN HIS HEAD KICKED IN JUST BECAUSE SOME LOSERS DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE! HE ISN’T JUST A QB? HE IS ALSO LIKE CALVIN IN THAT HE HAS BEEN BLESSED BY GOD!WITH A SPECIAL TALENT! THAT ISN’T HIS FAULT? FAR FROM IT IT IS HIS BLESSING AND PEOPLE DO NOT WANT HIM TO SUCCEED AT IT?
    IF IT WAS ME I DON’T THINK I WOULD CHALLENGE THE LORD AT WHAT HE WANTS AND DOESN’T WANT.
    AND THAT’S WHY IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO THE QB IS!
    WHATEVER MAN GETS THE NOD AT THE QB POSITION,HE WAS SUPPOSED TO GET IT!
    AND IF EVERYONE WOULD STOP TRYING TO PLAY GOD AND EXCEPT WHO GOD PUTS IN THESE POSITIONS THEN THINGS WOULD GO WELL!
    WHAT DOES EVERYONE THINK THAT IT IS SCHWARTZ THAT GIVES MATHEW THE CHANCE OR ANY OTHER PLAYER?
    WHOEVER YOU GO ON THAT FIELD WITH THATS WHO SHOULD BE OUT THERE.
    But, PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO MUCK IT UP, THAT IS FREE WILL. BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY KNOW BETTER.
    NO,YOU DON’T KNOW BETTER. WITH EVERYONE THINKING THAT THEY KNEW BETTER THIS IS WHAT IT GOT THEM 2 AND MAYBE 14.
    IF EVERYONE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN OUT OF THIER OWN HEADS AND WENT WITH WHAT GOD GAVE THEM TO BEGGIN WITH WE MIGHT HAVE GONE 10 AND 6.
    WE HAD THE TALENT I KNOW WE DID. BUT,MEN ALLWAYS THINK THEY KNOW BETTER. OR JUST WANT THINGS THE WAY THAT THEY WANT IT!
    I CAN TELL YOU THIS. KEEP PLAYING GOD AND TRYING TO GET EVERYTHING THE WAY YOU WANT IT AND YOU ARE GOING TO KEEP LOSING!
    AT THE BEGGINING OF THE YEAR MEN ARE CHOSEN TO TAKE THE FIELD. WHO DO YOU REALLY THINK PUTS THEM THERE?
    YES,THE COACH WHO WAS ALSO GIVIN A POSITION BECAUSE HE KNOW SOMETHING. WHY DOES HE KNOW SOMETHING?WHO GAVE HIM HIS TALENTS?
    THIS TEAM IS NOT LOOKING AT THE BIG PICTURE.
    WHAT ARE YOU DOING? EXCEPTING? AND DOING YOUR BEST WITH WHO GOES WITH YOU?
    OR PLAYING GAMES BESIDES THE GAME THAT YOU SHOULD BE PLAYING.
    I’M GOING TO DO MY BEST NOT TO COMMENT VERY MUCH AFTER TODAY.
    THIS TEAM HAS TO STOP PLAYING GAMES WITH PEOPLES LIVES AND LEARN TO EXCEPT WHO IT IS THAT THEY HAVE THAT IS GOOD AND TALENTED!
    EVERYONE KNOWS WHEN THE RIGHT MAN HAS THE JOB.
    WHY FIGHT IT? BECAUSE IT ISN’T WHAT YOU WANT PERSONALLY?
    THE STEELERS WHEN THEY HAVE SOMEONE OR SOMETHING THEY KNOW IT! AND THEY ALL PLAY WITH WHO IS THERE AND EXCEPT THAT THAT IS WHAT IS BEST AND WORK THIER BEHINDS OFF TO WIN WITH WHO THEY HAVE.
    TELL ME LARRY FOOTE DO THE PLAYERS DECIDE WHO IS GOING TO PLAY ON THE STEELERS OR DO THE PLAYERS PLAY WITH WHO THE COACH’S PUT ON THE FIELD?
    BECAUSE THAT’S THE WAY IT SHOULD BE HERE IN THE D.
    WHOEVER THIS ORGANIZATION PUT’S ON THE FIELD IT ISN’T YOUR JOB TO QUESTION IF IT IS THE RIGHT MAN FOR THE JOB.
    ONLY IF THE MAN IS REALLY NOT DOING HIS JOB.AND THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN BAD THIS YEAR IN A LOT O POSITIONS.
    AND I WILL SAY THAT I THINK THAT THE LBer CORE PLAYED THE BEST OUT OF MOST OF THE TEAM. AT LEAST AS A UNIT!
    THE REST OF THE TEAM SHOULD HAVE SAW AND WATCHED THEM PLAY A LOT MORE THAN THEY DID.
    ALL OF THE lINE BACKERS WERE PLAYING AS A UNIT! A TEAM.
    THEY BACKED EACH OTHER UP!
    WHEN THIS TEAM BECOMES A TEAM THEN IT WILL WIN.
    IF YOUR PLAYING GAMES OTHER THAN THE GAME THAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PLAYING THEN JUST PLEASE GO HOME.
    THIS CITY DOESN’T CARE ABOUT YOUR GAMES BEHIND THE SCENES. THIS CITY WANTS A WINNER. THIS CITY WANTS A TEAM! THAT BACKS EACH OTHER UP AND DOES THIER VERY BEST TO WIN! NO MATTER WHAT!
    WE WANT A TEAM THAT ISN’T GOING TO LET CHILDISH THINGS GET IN THE WAY OF WINNING!
    WE WANT A TEAM THAT WILL BACK EACH OTHER UP NO MATTER WHO THE OTHER GUY IS THAT HE IS PLAYING WITH.
    A TEAM. A REAL TEAM!
    SO YES I THOUGHT AND STILL DO THAT THIS TEAM HAD TALENT TO WIN THIS YEAR.
    SO THEN, YOU TELL ME WHY DIDN’T THIS TEAM WIN THIS YEAR?
    I MEAN I COULD BE TOTALLY WRONG ABOUT WHY WE DIDN’T WIN.
    HOWEVER I DO NOT THINK THAT I AM. AND IF I AM I BET THAT I’M NOT TO FAR OFF.
    OR SOMENONE OR MAYBE MANY WON’T BE HONEST ABOUT WHY THIS TEAM DID LOOSE.
    I’M SORRY BUT THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN SOME ISSUES OF TALENT. BUT,THAT’S NOT THE REASON.
    A TEAM WITH NOT SO MUCH TALENT CAN WIN IF THEY ARE ALL TOGETHER FIGHTING FOR THE SAME THING.YOU KNOW HEART!
    AND THAT I SAW LACKING A LOT OUT THERE. HEART. DIDN’T SEE MUCH OF THAT.
    THERE WERE SOME PLAYERS THAT PLAYED WITH HEART THOUGH.
    AND THEY USUALLY DO. GUY’S LIKE LARRY FOOTE LOUIS DELMAS, PETERSON, LEVY,RIOALA,KEVIN SMITH, CLIFF AVRIL,CALVIN JOHNSON,MATHEW STAFFORD. SOME OF THE LINEMEN OTHER THAN DOM,ON THE D-FENCE ALSO.I THINK SAMMY HILL WAS GIVING IT ALL HE HAD TOO!WITH BACKUS I JUST CAN’T TELL AND I DON’T KNOW WHY THAT IS BUT EVERYONE SAYS THAT HE IS SO HE MUST BE?
    ANYWAYS THATS ANOTHER THING THAT THIS TEAM NEEDS MORE OF AND THAT IS HEART.
    i HAVE SAID ENOUGH AND i WILL TRY TO SHUT UP FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON. But I MAKE NO PROMISES.
    I DO LOVE THIS TEAM!
    AND WHATEVER THE PROBLEMS ARE THEY ARE BREAKING MY LITTLE HEART! TRUE’LY!
    LIONS!

    Yeah don that also make sense! look in 2008 we had 5 QBs and we couldnt win a single game! ( we should of won atleast that one game vs the vikings) but your right seems the more QBs we use the harder it is for us win games, I hope we give Patrick Ramsey a chance whether its against the bears this week or next season, We should have just 1 starting QB but if the starter gets injured and we are stuck with drew stanton we are going to keep losing and we will be depressed, so the idea of this is … to keep Matt Stafford, Daunte Culpepper, and Patrick Ramsey should have fair chance to see if hes good enough for 1st, 2nd or 3rd string spot as QB, lets make it a fair decision, not judge Ramsey how he did in Washington DC, NY or Tennessee! see how he does as a Lion! you cant always go by a players stats how they are going to play! personally my opinion of Drew Stanton is shape up or ship out bc ppl have been laughing at us especially when all he does is give the ball to the other team! We have CULPEPPER & now RAMSEY, no there not the best QBs in the league, but they are alot better then Stanton!

    Guys,

    I think we need protection for Stafford, not more QB’s at least one we have never heared of. Culpepper will not be back next year, he wants to start for an NFL team. I closest starting job he will get is NFL Europe. The Lions will have the second overall pick and rumors are they want a Defensive Tackle, knock,knock knock, is there anyone home. The lions need to FIRE fourty starters and keep the coach. All of the successful teams protect their QB’s with a great Offensive Line. We don’t need Raiola kicking butt after the fact, we need a line that will give there guy time to check off and find the open man.
    The fans should have a say, and enough is enough. Detroit has the best fan base in the entire United States. The fans need to revolt and stay away from FORD FIELD until the lions put a WINNING team on the field.

    Mike
