Jim Schwartz has stated publically that the Lions will start Daunte Culpepper in Saturday’s pre-season opener.
Schwartz then stated, “Don’t read anything into it.”
It is likely that this doesn’t mean much. Culpepper, Stafford, and Stanton will probably see the same amount of snaps. Pre-season games are always for evaluation (especially when there is uncertainty at the starting position).
I can tell you, this Lions’ fan is psyched to see what the highest paid rookie in the history of the NFL can do in the second quarter.
