Stafford’s Confidence In Offense Still Strong

Lions_Matthew_Stafford_2012In the wake of last week’s game against the Cleveland Browns, coach Jim Schwartz and running back Reggie Bush both leveled criticism at the Lions for their performance and said that the fact that it was preseason didn’t eliminate the need for concern.

Wide receiver Nate Burleson added his voice to that crew on Monday, saying that the starting offense has to “create some momentum” after failing to score a touchdown in either of the team’s first two preseason games. Quarterback Matthew Stafford admitted that he’d prefer to score touchdowns, but that the offense’s efforts in the two games has done nothing to shake his confidence in a unit that he knows needs to keep getting better all season.
