Matthew Stafford will take over if Culpepper fails, but Culpepper's likely to begin the season as the starter, and he's got a lot of weapons at his disposal so chances are he'll do great and won't get pulled. Let's look at who he is throwing the pig skin too; Calvin Johnson, managed to tie for the league lead in touchdowns on the worst team in NFL history with just 14 targets in the red zone, Bryant Johnson, Ronald Curry, first-round pick Brandon Pettigrew and running back Kevin Smith are solid complementary targets. Plus here is the best news of all, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan was Culpepper's play caller in 2004! Linehan called the plays the year Culpepper threw for 39 touchdowns, 4717 yards with just 11 picks. And if you Nay sayers think Culpepper is a washed up nobody, consider that Kurt Warner came off the couch a couple seasons ago and blew the fantasy football world away! Doubt me and you'll cry later.
