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.
