I wonder if it's an indictment of his talent too.

Maybe Daunte thinks that HE is not good enough and therefore doesn't want to embarrass himself.  And also doesn't feel like he COULD get a higher contract based on performance.

I don't know; just throwing it out there.

If I was a psychologist, I'd probably say that almost all of DC's troubles related to not having an NFL job right now are ego related.  It is DC's ego that keeps him from hiring an agent, being a student of the game, not working out to be in top condition, not accepting a 3rd string position and working his way back up through an organization, etc.  I still feel that if DC would humble himself and apply himself, that he could get back to being a top 10 QB in the league in the next few years.

But, for the record, I'm not a psychologist; I just play one on the internet.

Did you stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night?

I don't blame him one bit for dissing KC. Unless he's desperate for money, why in the hell would he want to play there?


Why would anyone want to play in Detroit?

At least work out for both teams and get a feel for the franchises.

He probably thinks he'll get a chance to stick it to KA twice a year, ergo his ego that's been brought up.

He could just sell that stupid gold pepper he use to wear to Lil Wayne for about a mil.  That can't be the case.

The Lions quest to stay perfect actually has a pretty serious test the last two weeks of the season. On paper those are easy losses, but New Orleans doesn't want to back out of the playoffs when they could "seize the day" and show themselves the exit. Green Bay will have a lot to lose for next week, too, as they eye the draft pick seeding. I'm not saying the Lions can't do it, but they'll have to stay focused in their pursuit of history.

Since Kitna was hurt, does that take him off the hook for saying once again the Lions would win 10 games?

True, but they usually give us a game.  Many games have gone down to the 4th quarter.

Nah. Division rivals often fight tough, even when they're lousy teams. The Lions aren't unique there, nor are we for having tough games against them.

I have to agree with Lynn.

When Dallas went 1-15 their one win was against Washington who was 1 year removed from winning their 2nd SB and 2 years away from winning their 3rd.

OTOH, there was a time when we owned Detroit and beat them with ease for several years during the early Culpepper era I believe - maybe even Randall and George

Not that it matters, but I am a numbers guy. I am curious:

Why is Stafford wearing #9 for the Lions? There doesn't appear to be a number 7 (his college number) on the roster. I can't believe the lions have any retired numbers outside of 20, which was recently retired for Sanders, Simms and some Db. I kinda look for it, but didn't come up with anything. They didn't have the press conference where they introduce him on their website when I looked.

Maybe he just decided he likes the number 9 better than 7?

Maybe he couldn't get 9 in college?

Who knows...and further...who really cares?

It's a prediction on how many TO's Culpepper will have per game.  Mind tricks already by the young kid

#7 is retired, Dutch Clark.

Interesting fact, Stafford went to the same high school as Bobby Layne. I think his #22 is also retired.

And  yes, I knew about the Bobby Layne connection. I still feel like Stafford will be nothing special and Sanchez will be.

They had Stafford on ESPN:360 getting a make over from Sharipova 

Sorry, what was I saying???

Oh yeah.  He's actually a pretty funny dude and does have a personality.  You just have to goad it out of him.  He's a lot like Manning was when he came out.  Shy and keeps to himself but when he says something it's actually pretty funny.

I have a feeling he'll get eaten alive in Detroit though.

Just offering a couple of possibilities.  That makes me a JackASS?

Tellling people the things they want to chat about are worthless or pointless is a lot more offensive than you seem to think. I honestly don't think you realize this, or maybe don't mean it the way you intend, but the truth is, yeah.. it kinda does. You have every right to do it, obviously. Just wish you wouldn't.

Who the heck is Dutch Clark?
