The Detroit Lions put a video on their website of mic’d-up moments from Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, and the resulting 10 minutes are pretty entertaining.

You’ll see a lot of longtime Lions safety Louis Delmas, a little of new safety Glover Quin, a little more of injured wide receiver Nate Burleson and an entertaining exchange between some former Lions and an official. The most talking televised, however, comes from a surprisingly fiery – given his usual laid-back demeanor with media – quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Some of the highlights are Stafford marveling over his defense – “Can you imagine having Ziggy Ansah and Ndamukong Suh line up across from you, being the center and being like, ‘Awesome!’” – and telling head coach Jim Schwartz he got the ball across the plane on his touchdown-fumble only to be told, “I don’t think you did … ”
