Culpepper: The Lions Savior?

adam smereckiCorrespondent INovember 6, 2008

There have been a lot of grumblings and questions in the Detroit area concerning the signing of Culpepper to the Lions.

Will he play this Sunday or will Drew Stanton?

Does he deserve to start considering he has only been at practice for three days?

Does Culpepper have anything left in the tank?

The answer to all of these questions is: I don't know and neither do the Lions.

This franchise is so lost it's not even funny. It was announced today that the game will be blacked out in the Detroit area because the Lions could not sell out Ford Field. Even the possibility that Culpepper will play this Sunday did not help.

The Lions Offensive Coordinator Jim Colletto didn't want Drew Stanton to "embarrass" himself out there so he is not an option to start. Dan Orlofsky has a thumb problem so he will not play, that leaves Culpepper as the obvious choice right?

Wrong.

The Lions have no idea what they are going to do this Sunday I have to believe. If they do know then they sure have a funny way of showing it. I would not be surprised if Drew Henson gets a couple snaps out there.

Regardless, the Lions will go out this Sunday and play football. My only hope is that Culpepper can do something to give Lions fans hope. If he does then Mr. Colletto should be the one embarrassed because his "Offense" is not as complicated as he would lead us to believe.
