Offense looks good in win
DETROIT Daunte Culpepper and Matthew Stafford each played a solid game in todays 18-17 preseason win over the Indianapolis Colts. Neither stepped up and grabbed the starting job. Neither stumbled big-time either.
Coach Jim Schwartz was mum on the situation after the game. He said he liked the way all three quarterbacks played, including Drew Stanton who engineered the winning drive.
"Our offense was able to control the ball. When you play the Colts, when you play Peyton Manning you better be able to control the football and limit his chances. I thought Scott (Linehan, offensive coordinator) and his staff did a great job of that in the first half, Schwartz said.
The Lions have a short-turnaround until their final preseason contest on Thursday night at Buffalo.
Which quarterback will start that game? On Friday, Schwartz said theres a good chance it will be Stafford since Culpepper started today. But following the game he was non-committal. The debate rages.
