Whether they like it or not the Lions have found a Quarterback in Daunte Culpepper.
Culpepper has shown more poise in the pocket and skill than any Quarterback the Lions have. I know that is not saying much but it's a start.
The Lions aren't going to go out and grab some "flash in the pan" free agent next year like Matt Cassell or Derek Anderson to build their offense around. As we know the Lions have no reason to draft a Quarterback next year when they need to put together an offensive line and yes a defense that can tackle.
Whether or not the Marinelli regime will be in Detroit next year is irrelevant. Culpepper will be in Detroit and ready to play.
I can see Kevin Smith, Calvin Johnson, and Culpepper being a nice triple threat for the Lions next season. At the very least Culpepper will be a great veteran back up but the Lions have to really groom a rookie first. We all have seen how Stanton turned out not to mention Orlovsky.
I do realize I am talking about the Lions here. A new General Manager in the works and few great moves by the front office this season have the Lions looking up. Culpepper may just be the man to get them out of the cellar.
