Uncertainty still surrounds Drew Stanton after his third season with the Lions. Why did coach Jim Schwartz decide not to start him at quarterback Sunday against Chicago? What does his future hold in Detroit?
If the Lions aren’t going to give him a legitimate shot to compete for the No. 2 QB job, would he prefer to move on?
“Um, yeah,” Stanton said today as the Lions cleaned out their lockers. “I think I’ve talked about it with coach Schwartz, even. He said you can’t survive in this league as a No. 3. It just doesn’t happen, because there’s always going to be guys coming in, in the rookie class. It’s a matter of trying to establish myself at least as a backup in this league.”
