Scanning the Savanna

Scanning the Savanna is a daily feature that brings fresh Detroit Lions and NFL related content to your fingertips each morning. Grab a cup of coffee and let’s scan the savanna together.

The San Francisco 49ers. The Detroit Lions. Both playoff teams for the first time in years. Both with quarterbacks that were chosen number one in their respective NFL drafts. That’s where the similarity begins and ends.

Detroit coach Jim Schwartz yells on the sideline, pumps his right fist after good plays and shouts not-fit-for-print words when things don’t go well.

Lions general manager Martin Mayhew? Sometimes seen, rarely heard.

Maybe, at some level, these are unnecessary words. After becoming just the fourth quarterback in NFL history to throw for more than 5,000 yards, and the seventh to toss more than 40 touchdowns, is there anyone who doesn’t believe Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is elite?

Green Bay Packers linebacker Brad Jones’ best tackle of the day might not have been on another football player.
