I’m just going to keep working."

Brent Schaeffer's statistics, huh? I'm not trying to say anything but after last week's irrational euphoria I feel that we must realistically analyze the competition.

I know Schaeffer is struggling but he is a still a decent player. Under Martinez we've had loads of trouble with mobile quarterbacks. In fact, Schaeffer's passing stats on the year are substantially the same as Matt Stafford's. I think it's also fair to say that, statistically, we aren't very good on offense. Let's hope our defense shows up in the first half or I think we could see a Buffalo repeat.

By the way, Joe Cox, statistically speaking, is better than Peyton Manning. Extrapolation is Tech-speak for lying. Go Dawgs!

Starting anyone other than Lumpkin would be a very bad idea. I don't think either Brown or Ware have looked good recently.
