Detroit, Michigan (PRWEB) May 23, 2013
After a disappointing 4-12 season, the Detroit Lions will be looking for someone on the team to step up and be a leader in 2013. For good reason, the first position everyone will look to is the quarterback, Matthew Stafford. Stafford is still very young, as he has just turned 25 years old. At that young age, it might be harder for Stafford to be a leader to his teammates compared to other quarterbacks in the league, but he is definitely up for the challenge. "Yeah, absolutely," Stafford said. "I'm a year older, I've been through it that much longer, and I think guys on the team understand that and respond to it. It's been nice moving in that direction." In another position other than quarterback, linebacker Stephen Tulloch thinks that he can step up and take over as team leader. The Lions recently released three-time captain Kyle Vanden Bosch, a leader that was known for his motivation, passion, and intensity. Vanden Bosch was the leader that set the tone everyday and practice and in the weight room, and Tulloch is ready to be that new leader. http://www.mlive.com/lions/index.ssf/2013/05/detroit_lions_have_plenty_of_p.html
The Lions will have a relatively tough schedule this year, but they believe it will be there comeback year. They will play the Washington Redskins in week three, last years NFC East division champs. This will be the first game that will be a good test for the Lions. In week 5 they will face the Green Bay Packers, a team that they have not beat in a few years. You can bet the Lions will be coming out for revenge. To check out tickets for these games and the rest of the Detroit Lions schedule, go to http://www.Lions-Tickets.net.
