The Morning Fix

Barry Sanders Jr. was destined to be a great high school running back. One need look no further than his name to know running a football is practically in his blood.

“I’m going to try to throw some this week and see how it feels,” Stafford said Monday during his regular appearance on a Detroit radio talk show. “I talked to our team doctors and Dr. (James) Andrews as well, and they thought it would be a good time to try to throw the football and see how it feels.”

There is a big, big difference between competing with opponents and knowing what to do at the end of close games. It’s not the final step. It’s half of the battle. That’s the reality of parity.

It must be kind of hard to be a Lions fan right now. The Lions are playing the best football they have in along time. They have been doing all this without their franchise QB Matthew Stafford who is once again injured.

A quarter of the season has passed and the Lions remain winless. Three of their four losses have been by less than a touchdown.

“Didn’t get off to the start we wanted,” coach Jim Schwartz said Monday. “Each of those games we’ve had a chance to win and we haven’t come up with it, each for a different reason.
