Stanton is the long-term QB in Detroit, no matter how Orvlosky or w/e his name is

its Stanton for the long-haul

i'd bet almost anything on that (if he is solid, no matter how good Or-nobody-is) ;-D

What's your source? Do you closely follow Detroit sports?

Wow that's a bold opinion of Stanton there...Late first round?

I am big on him, but seems to be he's more valuable and can be had late second in most drafts. I have gotten him at 2.9 and 3.1 so far.

Undoubtedly, Palmer's talent helped him a lot, but it isn't like he got there with no help at all. Palmer was one of the best quarterbacks in the league by his third year; that doesn't come off of just talent.


Don't forget Stanton is being coached by Mike Martz, too. ;-D


Touche. ;-D


Did you seriously just compare Drew freakin Stanton to Carson Palmer?! Wow. :-° :-b

He probably drafted Stanton in his dynasty league. Makes him an expert you know... ;-D

I like Stanton in Dynasty/keeper leagues. Imaging in a few years throwing to CJ and RW 8-o

I do not expect Kitns to be around too much longer.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (Aug. 3, 2007) -- The Detroit Lions placed rookie quarterback Drew Stanton on injured reserve, ending his season to open up a roster spot for wide receiver Calvin Johnson, the second overall pick in April's draft.

The former Michigan State quarterback injured his knee during the first week of camp and underwent arthroscopic surgery July 31. The second-round pick was expected to miss all of training camp, meaning he wouldn't get enough practice time to learn Mike Martz's difficult offensive scheme.

"We didn't know exactly when he would be healthy enough to play, and it is hard to keep an injured guy on the roster when you need all the depth you can get," Lions coach Rod Marinelli said. "This way, we can focus on rehabbing his knee and working with him in the classroom."


Who was it earlier in this thread who was saying not to expect much from Stanton early on? Because they really had this nail hit on the head.

Uh, no, I simply stated that the same quarterback who mentored Carson Palmer is now mentoring Stanton. Obviously Stanton doesn't have the skills that Palmer had coming out of college, but Kitna definitley won't hurt him.

Stanton being out for the year will definitely decrease his value, which I love. That still doesn't seriously affect his chances of future success. Kitna was the definite starter anyway, and Stanton probably won't start until the middle of 2008 at the earliest, possibly later. I'll still be targetting him in my rookie drafts, probably third round.

For fantasy, I'd put stanton at least QB #2 in a dynasty. Kolb I would take a flier on if I had McNabb simply after seeing what a formerly washed up Gracia did. The only way Russell only has 150-200 scrambling for his life is because the pass protection is so bad, he's usually scrambling from the entire defensive line. Unless Kiffin magically turns that front 5 into decent pass blockers Russell may end up with more runs than passes.
