Head Coach Schwartz Speaks About Decision to Start Stafford

From The Detroit News:

"I was very pleased with what (Stafford) did in the preseason, going back to rookie minicamp and straight through," Schwartz said. "I think he's proven every step along the way that he's ready."

Schwartz was asked Monday if he was committed to weathering the bumpy road with a rookie starting quarterback this season.

"This isn't an internship, this isn't a trial basis," Schwartz said. "He's our starting quarterback."
