Friday Notes: Matthew Stafford Discusses QB Situation

  • Matthew Stafford has recently been making appearances in the media to promote Axe Hair (one of his endorsement deals), and in a radio interview in his hometown of Dallas, he talked about the Lions' quarterback situation.
    "I would love to start Game 1," Stafford said when asked for his ideal scenario on ESPN Radio's Galloway and Co. in his hometown of Dallas. "I think every player that plays in the NFL would love to play every game, and that’s just how I am, and that’s how I attack this season.

    "I know there’s going to be a learning curve, and if I don’t start Game 1, I’m not going to get down on myself. I’m going to go out there and try to win a job at some point. I’m in here to win it, though."
    That certainly is the right attitude to have as a rookie QB.  Obviously the ideal situation for him would be to start from the very beginning of the season, but even if he has to sit on the bench, he can't sulk about it and stop competing.

  • A "Fan Q&A" with Louis Delmas has been posted on the Lions' official site.
