One would think a struggling franchise, that managed to amass an unprecedented 0-16 in the 2008 season, would be ready to get back on the winning side of the track.
In unsurprising fashion, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz named rookie QB Matt Stafford as the starter for the season opener against the Saints on Sunday.
“I’m very,very comfortable with the quarterback position here, not just one and two, but also three,” commented Schwartz. Translation: Schwartz believes he can win games with either of the 3 QB’s on his roster, Stafford, Culpepper or Stanton.
I believe in self confidence, but I’m also a realist. The Lions would only win 6 or 7 games if Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Drew Brees were their trio of QB’s. This team is really bad and its going to take more than an overpaid rookie QB and positive conversation to turn this franchise around.
A little time and more in house cleaning will do the trick; in two or three years they will be okay, but until then more losses will accumulate.
