Matthew Stafford

Riddle me this Batman: Who has more question marks surrounding him then the Riddler? Why its Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. Word recently came out from offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi that Stafford may have played it a little too safe this past season. The new plan for this coming season is to take the handcuffs off Stafford and let him play his game while following the constraints set by Caldwell obviously. This could be a big year for Stafford if the Lions bolster the offensive line and surround him with some more receiving weapons.

Dan Orlovsky

Dan will always hold a spot in Lions fans heart after his heads up play in 2008. While stepping out of your own end zone may seem dumb to most I see what he was going for. He was just trying to avoid the sack, duh. In all seriousness this is still a bit of a head scratcher to me.

Kellen Moore

The savior himself. Never you worry fans, Mr. Touchdown is on the bench just waiting for that magical moment where he leads the Lions to 7 Super Bowls in a row. Until then I would expect Moore to challenge for Orlovsky’s back up spot. He just might win it.
