Matthew Stafford will start Week 6

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

It has not been a very fun season for the Lions, who fell to 0-5 Sunday when they were blown out by the Cardinals.

Lions Coach Jim Caldwell reiterated Monday that Matthew Stafford remains the team’s starting quarterback and doesn’t need to worry about being demoted.

“He’s never been on a short leash,” Caldwell told reporters. “And he won’t be in the future.”

The whole season seems that way. Caldwell is essentially saying that there’s lots of blame to go around. He called Sunday’s game “ugly” — it’s hard to disagree — and also said it was disappointing and embarrassing.

Fantasy Impact: 

Stafford was benched Sunday after his third interception. That, though, seems like a situation in which everything was going wrong and it was best to get Stafford out of harm’s way the story suggested. Stafford and the Lions get a much friendlier matchup in Week 6 against the Bears.
