Stafford, Sanchez meet with the media
More to come later, but quarterbacks Matt Stafford and Mark Sanchez just got done meeting with the media here in Indianapolis. Stafford said his meeting with Lions brass went well Thursday night and Sanchez said he met for lunch yesterday with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.
Stafford was asked why the Lions should take him with the No. 1 pick.
It's not up to me to say," he said. "I think I'm doing everything I can to prove to people that I'm a good football player and worthy of the pick and if that so happens to be the first pick of the Detroit Lions I'd be more than happy to be there and come and play and try to turn that thing around. It's obviously not up to me. It'd be a great honor to be picked first, no question. I would love to have that synonymous with my name for a long time but it's not a do or die. I'm going to play football in this league some place and it's not where you get drafted it's where you take your career from there.
