Re: Lions sign Daunte Culpepper to a two year deal

Desperate times call for desperate measures...with a move like this, it's obvious that Orlovsky and Stanton were Millen's guys, not Marinelli. At this point, 0-8 and the last defeated team in the league, play the young guys and keep that #1 pick in tow.

However, if by some miracle Daunte is ready to roll, his strong arm can open the offense up...visions of Culpepper/Moss connections with Calvin Johnson being on the receiving end of the Daunte Shuffle more than once.

Re: Lions sign Daunte Culpepper to a two year deal

Orlovsky was a Mooch guy, I believe. With a relatively weak QB draft class coming this year leading up to a monstrously talented class in 2010, Detroit may not be in a good position in the draft to pull in a QB of the future. I mean, if a junior like Colt McCoy (who has started 35+ college games) comes out, it changes a lot of things, but the two first round QBs right now have to be Graham Harrell and John Parker Wilson, and the Lions might as well try to move into the future with either Orlovsky or Culpepper.

Stanton's probably not going to get a serious chance, but the guy can't stay healthy so it's hard to argue that he's been screwed.

DC= In game, live, tackling dummy until the oline gets good enough to protect the younger prospects.

I disagree that the Culpepper signing prevents them in any way from moving forward. He's not going to just start next week.

I could actually see detroit getting there first win this weekend with DC at the helm..

SURGERY FOR ORLOVSKY?
Posted by Mike Florio on November 7, 2008, 9:47 p.m.

Originally reported as a sprain, it turns out that Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky might need surgery for two fractures and a torn ligament.

Its unknown when or if Orlovsky will return this year. Its also unknown whether second-year quarterback Drew Stanton of newcomer Daunte Culpepper will take the snaps on Sunday against the Jaguars.

Stanton spent most of 2007 on injured reserve, and has yet to appear in a regular-season game. In contrast, Culpepper has been with the team only four days.
