Detroit Lions, torn between Stafford and Culpepper

Now that the 2009 NFL season is yet to open, some teams haven’t yet decided or are still in the “fuzz” of who’s going to be the starting player to play their offense.

Those teams include the Detroit Lions, where they are torn between the rookie John Matthew Stafford and the three-time Pro Bowl selection Daunte Richard Culpepper.

Hmm… does that sounded a bit unjust for you? Nothing to worry or feel bad about. In fact, many critics and analysts have predicted Stafford to play the starting position on week 1.

Anyway, Lions wouldn’t sign up the rookie for a $78M worth of contract deal with almost $42M guarantee, for nothing! That amount sure has to mean something, plus the fact that he was drafted 1st overall on the 2009 NFL Draft- indeed the Lions has really big plans for this guy.

Although Coach Schwart haven’t disclosed anything regarding whose going to be the opener on the game on Sept. 13, he always pertain to the best player- to take the place as their starting QB and thus- play the offense of the team.

In a little time, we’ll all find out and will either be glad or shocked, on who’s going to take that spot for the starting QB’s position of the Detroit Lions.

However, we are to expect a head-to-head battle between these two gentlemen who both seem so urged to get the position.

Stafford said during an interview that he has the mind-set to play the starting QB job for the Lions on the week 1 of this season. And that seeing other players to do their trainings very well, such as Daunte, makes him more inspired and motivated to play and make it even better for himself.

Culpepper, on the other hand, feels the same adrenaline as well. He too, believes that he’s going to be the man to play their offense, and thus to win the division. In fact, Culpepper is really making a great effort to show his potential as he comes back with a lot of trainings and discipline, including losing some weight. And Schwart have noticed that in fact, but still wouldn’t close any statements as of the moment.

Who do you think will get the spot for the Lion’s starting QB? We want to hear from you!

Larry Foote, from Pittsburgh Steelers to Detroit Lions

The seven year veteran linebacker Larry Foote of the Pittsburgh Steelers will now wear the Detroit Lions Jersey.

Born on Detroit, Michigan, the 6-1, 239 pounder heads back home, as he signed a one year deal with the Detroit Lions on May 6, 2009. With Foote’s professional debut with the Steelers during the 2002 season, Foote requested his release after seven years of his pro career in Pittsburgh.

Larry played college football at the University of Michigan, where he was awarded as the Defensive Player of the Year being their team’s top linebacker during his senior year in 2001, before being drafted by the Steelers on the following year.

And now he comes back to Detroit and will finally play for his home town. Foote said that it’s a great opportunity to come home, and play for the Lions.

Foote will now join the defense line of the Detroit Lions. He will be joining the rest of the new veteran players in the team including linebacker Julian Peterson, defensive tackle Grady Jackson, and the cornerbacks Eric King, Phillip Buchanon, and Anthony Henry.

Foote is definitely a big impact to the Lions’ defense being a veteran, but at the same time, he has to deal also with the fact of being a new comer in his new team. Foote said that he just want to get mentally ready, to break to ice with his new teammates, and to prove his worth to the team. Foote had met Head Coach Jim Schwartz and the rest of the Lions staff last May 5. And so far, Foote had felt at home being with the Detroit Lions.
