Lions | Culpepper upset about not starting Week 12
Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions QB Daunte Culpepper was upset that the Lions started QB Matthew Stafford (shoulder) in Week 12 instead of him. Culpepper initially did not warm up before the game but eventually went on the field after an animated conversation with general manager Martin Mayhew. "Daunte's a competitor. He wants to be out there. We want backups that want to be out there. I'd much rather have that situation with Daunte than a guy that just tips his cap and says, 'Fine.' He still views himself as a starting quarterback, and rightfully so. But Matt's our starter, and when he's healthy enough, he'll be out there," head coach Jim Schwartz said.
