There is a chance Stafford would dress as the No. 3 quarterback. He would play only if starter Shaun Hill and backup Drew Stanton were injured.
After breaking down game tape and crunching some numbers, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this year’s Lions defense is nothing like its 2009 cousin.
But the Lions defense isn’t exactly chopped liver. Mostly due to their talented front four, the Lions are tied for first in the NFL in takeaways with 14 and are sixth in the league with 14 sacks.
Schwartz and Bulluck spent nine seasons together in Tennessee. Schwartz was linebackers coach when the Titans drafted Bulluck in the first round in 2000, and defensive coordinator when Bulluck developed into one of the best linebackers in the NFL.
