Chance for Culpepper
Can Daunte Culpepper prove something to himself and the rest of the NFL when he gets the start at Baltimore on Sunday? Of course, no one knows. But Culpepper realizes hes been given a great opportunity to prove that he still has what it takes to be a regular NFL starter.
He must show great improvement over his last start when the Lions were shut out 26-0 at Green Bay. That day the Lions were a lousy 0-for-10 on third-down conversions. It was a bad day all-around and it wasnt just Culpeppers fault.
Hell have some help on Sunday because wide receiver Calvin Johnson is healthy. Johnson was out with a knee injury during Culpeppers first two starts. It could be an interesting afternoon. Or not.
