Lions | President calls out Matthew Stafford, Brandon Pettigrew

Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand pointed to QB Matthew Stafford and TE Brandon Pettigrew when speaking about the team's slow start, and he said both must play better. "I would say that Matthew, in particular, is capable of playing better," Lewand said. "I think he'll be the first to tell you that. We've got a guy like a Brandon Pettigrew, our young tight end, who is capable of playing at a higher level than he's played. He's dropped some passes, including one on Sunday that cost us a touchdown. Those are the kinds of things we have to look at."
