DETROIT (97.1 The Ticket) – Mike Valenti and Terry Foster went head-to-head with Detroit Lions starting quarterback Matthew Stafford on 97.1 The Ticket Tuesday.
Stafford and the Lions endured a rough night in the Windy City with Stafford going 28 of 46 for 261 yards in the 13-7 loss to Chicago.
Detroit actually had more yards 340 to Chicago’s 296 on Monday night.
In addition to losing the game, the Lions lost Nate Burleson for the rest of the season after breaking his right leg during Monday night’s loss to the Bears.
Burleson was injured on a hit by Tim Jennings after a 16-yard catch in the third quarter with the Bears leading 13-0.
Stafford told Valenti and Foster that it’s disappointing to lose in the NFL but you move on.
Addressing the question of the Lions being a fourth quarter team, Stafford said that they feel they are never out of it and they just keep fighting.
Stafford found some common ground with the pre-playoff Tigers.
“They were a team that were down and out just before the playoffs,” said Stafford who earlier sent a congratulatory tweet to the team.
“Congrats to the World Series bound Tigers!! Very much deserved! #sweep #WorldSeries”.
So are the Lions down and out? Not so for Stafford who has said every week the Lions expect the best of themselves.
