Lions Notes: Jim Schwartz Focused On Packers, Not Pro Bowl Selections

  • Matthew Stafford is once again up for the FedEx Air Player of the Week award.
  • Stafford wants to play the entire game on Sunday.
  • It turns out that Stafford is the third alternate at quarterback for the NFC in the Pro Bowl. Cam Newton and Tony Romo are ahead of him. To me, that is just as ridiculous as Eli Manning being selected to the team over Stafford.
  • Calvin Johnson said he is "looking forward to going back" to the Pro Bowl unless the Lions are still playing, in which case he would be headed to the Super Bowl instead.
  • I think Jim Schwartz had the best quote when it came to all of the talk about the Pro Bowl:
    "I mean, we’re playing games, we’re not trying to win contests or polls or power ratings, or Miss Congeniality," Schwartz said. "Anything somebody’s voting on or judging really isn’t real high on our radar. We like to play 60 minutes and when there’s a tie-breaker based on how many Pro Bowlers you have, then we’ll worry about that."
