Matt Stafford may not play

NFL Football at its best. NFL Football at its craziest.
It is really kind of odd, but as a Lions fan that has watched both Matt Stafford and Daunte Culpepper very closely this year, it is very plain that right now as in the very next game, Daunte Culpepper is ready to lead this team to victory and Matt Stafford is not. The Squibster is not saying they will beat the Packers, just mentioning who looks ready.

No, the Squibster has not lost his mind. If you asked me personally and nobody has, it would be to start Matt Stafford every snap. He needs the game experience. He needs to develop timing in game situations with Johnson & Johnson. He needs to learn his reads so he can check down or call audibles. He needs to play.

Matt Stafford is the future

Matt Stafford is the future

Now he may not play this Sunday and if you have him on your Fantasy Football team, you better go out and pick up a different Matt like Matt Hasselbeck or something. Seattle plays Arizona and Matt should have a pretty big day.

Just what is Matt Stafford’s condition?

Stafford reportedly suffered a partially dislocated right kneecap Oct. 4 at Chicago. He didn’t practice last week until Friday, and the injury report listed him as limited. He was the third-string quarterback and didn’t play Sunday against Pittsburgh.

The injury report listed Stafford as limited in practice Wednesday. Asked whether Stafford took any reps, Linehan said: “Yeah, he worked probably half the practice. From my understanding, he’s getting better. He’s feeling better than he did last week.”

Stafford said Wednesday that he was improving, but he was concerned about swelling and unsure whether he would be able to play against the Packers.

“I’m looking towards tomorrow, to tell you the truth,” Stafford said Wednesday. “That’s my No. 1 thing, is trying to see if I can practice tomorrow.”

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Gives Proof!

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Gives Proof!

NFL Football at its best. NFL Football at its craziest.
The Cowboys are a mess.
Listening to the NFL pregame shows this past Sunday, all you could hear was a litany of problems for the Dallas Cowboys to overcome. Tony Romo is only average at best, they were saying. The Cowboys offensive line is old and tired. The hot dog vendor in section 409 is past his prime. And on and on the comments went.
All of this in spite of having a winning record and a winning road record.
Hey, it is hard to really say where the Cowboys …read more


Broncos and Bengals

Broncos and Bengals

NFL Football at its best. NFL Football at its craziest.
It is a rising up of horses and tigers or rather Broncos and Bengals. The USA Today Power rankings are out and it looks so different than what we predicted before the season began.
The Giants and Colts are 1 and 2, but the Patriots and Steelers are nowhere to be found. Well, at least by their standards. The Patriots and Steelers are 9th and 10 respectively.
The Saints are sitting at number 3, a much loftier rating that one would have thought, but they face a gigantic challenge in …read more

Jets lost to Miami Wildcat

Jets lost to Miami Wildcat

NFL Football at its best. NFL Football at its craziest.
For a while it was like Big Ten football game day with Braylon Edwards finding new life with the New York Jets or maybe going back to his life as a star at U of M. It was also Chad Henne, former U of M quarterback, displaying his strong arm going 20 – 26 for 241 yards and 2 TDs for the Dolphins and, finally, it was Ted Ginn Jr. the maligned speedster from Ohio State displaying his ultra speed on a deep pass from Rookie Mark Sanchez.
Miami 31 New York …read more


Denver in OT over New England

Denver in OT over New England

NFL Football at its best. NFL Football at its craziest.
They were celebrating their 50th anniversary in Denver and now they really have something to celebrate as Coach Belichick protégé Josh McDaniels has taken his Denver Broncos to 5 – 0 with an overtime victory over New England. Denver wore the mustard colored uniforms and must have been acting the part of Colonel Mustard in the drawing room with the candlestick as they took out the red white and blue New England Patriots.
Oddly it was not Tom Brady leading New England to victory, but instead was Kyle Orton leading the …read more

Ben Roethlisberger donates K9s to Detroit

NFL Football at its best. NFL Football at its craziest.
If Matt Stafford plays quarterback against the Pittsburgh Steelers and there has been no official announcement that he will, he may start shouting, “Call off the dogs”, as the Pittsburgh defense chases him all over the field. This will not be an easy time for Detroit’s offensive line. The Pittsburgh defense is bone crushing and that is why they get to Super Bowls and win them and Detroit can only host them.
Big Ben has a foundation and he decided to pay back the city that gave him his first …read more


Crabtree to save 49ers

Crabtree to save 49ers

NFL Football at its best. NFL Football at its craziest.
Michael Crabtree finally signed with the 49ers. Now if you don’t think this is a big deal, good. But if you do think it is a big deal then you can start citing things like he had more yards in his last two college years than anyone or something like that. Was it mentioned he also had the biggest ego?
Take it easy, the Squibster had many positives to say about Michael Crabtree earlier in the year.
He never ran a 40 due to a stress fracture causing Mike Singletary, …read more

Eli Manning, son of Arch has bad arch

Eli Manning, son of Arch has bad arch

NFL Football at its best. NFL Football at its craziest.
First off there was not a whole lot of reason to watch the Oakland Hairbraiders play against the New York Giants. The Raiders are pitiful. The Raiders are 1 – 3 and have scored 42 points in 4 games. Wow, you don’t win a lot of games in the NFL barely averaging above 10 points a game. Meanwhile, the Giants are unbeaten and have put up 107 points, which is almost 27 points a game.
Think was going to be a lopsided game?
The Giants tried to even it out a little by …read more


Mangini Rules, Braylon Gone

Mangini Rules, Braylon Gone

NFL Football at its best. NFL Football at its craziest.
Burned into my memory are lasting pictures of Braylon Edwards playing for the U of M Wolverines and beating my MSU Spartans. In my memory they beat us about 400 times with Braylon scoring every time. He just had to be great in the NFL, didn’t he?
Maybe it is now found out that you sometimes have to be great as a person, too.
Wonder if LeBron James approved of the Braylon Edwards trade to New York?
Braylon was nothing but trouble with the Cleveland Browns and Romeo Crennel put up with it and …read more

Peyton Manning moves up the list

Peyton Manning moves up the list

NFL Football at its best. NFL Football at its craziest.
The Indianapolis Colts are 4 – 0 and a large part of that is due to one man, Peyton Manning. Peyton is starting to amass a mass of incredible stats.
Check some of these out from the Manning Meter.
5th All Time with 3,936 completions.
3rd All Time with 342 career touchdown passes.
6th All Time with 46,964 career passing yards and soon to be 5th as Peyton is only 9 yards behind Fran Tarkenten.
Brett Favre and Dan Marino are 1 and 2 in each statistical category with John Elway 3rd in completions and …read more
