Sit Stafford, Start Stanton.... Not Culpepper

Says Killer Kowalski...

That same philosophy should be attached to the quarterback and that's why Stanton, a former second-round draft choice, should get the nod over Daunte Culpepper, who is not expected to be in Detroit next season.

And the Lions cannot use the crutch that Culpepper gives them a better chance to win. Signing Ty Law would give them a better chance to win, too, but there are other issues involved here.

Stanton finally got some good coaching under offensive coordinator Scott Linehan and quarterback coach Jeff Horton. It's time to see how much he has learned and what he is capable of.

 

 

 

 

From a fan's perspective... I'd much rather watch Stanton on Sunday than Culpepper.   I want to see if Stanton can be the reliable backup that I think he can be.   Sorry Culpepper, thanks for your services, but the Lion's philosophy of "letting the young guys" play has to hold true.   And to be honest, I don't have ANY faith that Culpepper would do any better than Stanton.  He certainly didn't show it in the 2 games he played this year. 

 

What say you?   Start the Young, or go with the Older veteran who probably won't be here next year?
