Lions at Steelers Pre-Season Week One Gameday Thread

Lions' Stafford looking forward to facing Steelers

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -Matthew Stafford's offseason was longer than he would've liked, missing the final four games of his rookie season with a banged-up shoulder.

The young quarterback's wait is almost over: The Detroit Lions open their exhibition season Saturday night on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"I obviously want to play well, but it's my first time on the field since the Cincinnati game,'' said Stafford, referring to the Dec. 6 game that turned out to be his 2009 finale. "So, it'll be good for me to get back out there and get my feet wet again.''

Stafford played in 10 games last year, missing two games in October with an injured right knee and the last four with that sore left shoulder.

The No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft was sharing snaps with Daunte Culpepper at this time last year. Now, Stafford is Detroit's clear-cut starter and coach Jim Schwartz wants him to take advantage of the opportunity to play against the Steelers.

"Every time the quarterback takes the field it's important,'' Schwartz said. "You need to have that sense of urgency.''

Schwartz has not said how much Stafford will play against Pittsburgh, but did rule out several players for the first of four preseason games.

Running back Kevin Smith and tight end Brandon Pettigrew, both of whom are recovering from knee surgery, are listed as out ,along with safety Louis Delmas (groin) and linebacker DeAndre Levy (back). The hope is to have all of them back for the season-opening game Sept. 12 at Chicago.

Ndamukong Suh, the No. 2 pick this year, is expected to make his professional debut 10 days after a seven-practice holdout.

"Definitely excited,'' Suh said. "I don't really consider it an exhibition game. Everybody's playing hard, everybody's fighting for a spot, so it's my first opportunity to go against somebody else other than my teammates and prove what I can do for this defense.''

Yeah. More options will be available throughout the game. Usually about 3 per game.

Steelers coach won't say if Ben Roethlisberger will play

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was in midseason form Thursday, declining to say who would start at quarterback against the visiting Lions on Saturday.

"We're going to make you come to the stadium to find out," he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Remember, we're talking about a guy who will take, what, 10 or so snaps in a big exhibition game.

The options are Ben Roethlisberger, Byron Leftwich and Dennis Dixon. In fact, Tomlin wouldn't say whether Roethlisberger -- who faces a six-game regular-season suspension for his off-season bad behavior -- will play at all.
Lions 5-11 in Madden

Speaking of pretend football -- like exhibition games -- remember those Internet clips a couple of weeks ago, showing the Lions winning and celebrating the Super Bowl, courtesy of Madden 11?

Well, they're coming back down to earth, even in the video-game world.

EA Sports released its annual Madden 11 simulation of the NFL regular season to ESPN.com, and the Lions went 5-11.

Would that be good enough for you, if it happens in real life, too?
Grandy's slumping

Is Curtis Granderson the Roy Williams of the Yankees? Were they hoodwinked by a sharp-trading Detroit GM?

Granderson was hitting .239 through Wednesday, while his rookie replacement for the Tigers, Austin Jackson, was at .304.

So the slumping Granderson suggested the Yankees shut him down for a couple of days this week while he worked on overhauling his swing with hitting coach Kevin Long.

"He said, 'How much worse can it get?' " Long told the N.Y. Post. "I agreed."

Granderson entered Tuesday's and Wednesday's games as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement while he worked on shortening his swing.

"We are trying to eliminate the moving parts to get to the balance point," Granderson said. "I have been changing swings my whole career."

Maybe the fine-tuning is starting to work. Granderson went 2-for-3 with an RBI in the Yankees' 4-3 win over the Royals on Thursday.
