On the heels of our very own MDS reporting from Super Bowl week that the entire NFL is mock-drafting Matthew Stafford to the Lions comes word from Detroit that new offensive coordinator Scott Linehan is already planning to use the entire preseason before naming a starting quarterback.
Linehan said he's talked to Daunte Culpepper, Jon Kitna and Drew Stanton, and he made it clear the Lions don't have a frontrunner for the starting job. Not yet. ... Linehan, who said he's still in the process of evaluating the quarterbacks, brought up the fact that Atlanta held an open quarterback competition in preseason before choosing Matt Ryan, who went on to be the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year.
