In a recent radio interview, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz was asked about the possibility of rookie Matthew Stafford opening the regular season as the team's starting QB.
Schwartz repeatedly stressed the point that fans should not get too far ahead of themselves.
He said Stafford has a lot to learn, he is only a rookie.
The reality is, Stafford, the first overall pick in the 2009 National Football League draft, is on the fast track to become the Lions' starting QB this season.
So far, Stafford has passed every test with flying colours.
That is why Schwartz warns of caution.
It is still seven weeks away from the opener and anything can happen.
