"We do have 13 games left," Caldwell said, via The Detroit Free Press. "They're not handing out any trophies after three games and you can't be eliminated after three games. And I know there's all the stats that are out there about who does what at 0-3. I don't care about all that stuff. What I care about is trying to get better, and I thought we made a little headway."
Though no one will say it, this may not be the worst thing for Detroit in the long run. Stafford is only 27 and probably has a fine second act in him assuming Detroit can fix their leaky offensive line and continue to surround him with quality skill position players. Running back Ameer Abdullah was a good start.
