TwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailPhoto by Wesley Hitt/Getty ImagesOn Monday, the Lions made a change at the quarterback position, swapping out former Michigan State Spartan Connor Cook for David Fales, a journeyman who has spent time with the Bears, Ravens and Dolphins in just five years of NFL experience.While Detroit is doing their due diligence by raking the bottom of the depth chart at quarterback to find a developmental prospect, it seems like the team is perfectly content with veteran Tom Savage backing up Matthew Stafford.Which leads us to today’s “Question of the Day”:Are you concerned about the Lions backup quarterback position?My answer: Honestly, how could you be? When you have a specimen like Tom Savage Tavon Wilson Jersey , a guy with a stronger arm than Matthew Stafford, what is there possibly to worry about?But in reality, Bob Quinn stuck pretty close to his draft philosophy of bringing in new quarterbacks every year during the first two years of being the team’s general manager—selecting Jake Rudock in 2016 and Brad Kaaya in 2017.In these past two drafts, however, Quinn has passed on using a draft pick to select a quarterback, opting to go with a more veteran presence backing up Stafford. Last year it was Matt Cassel, this year it’s Tom Savage—someone who has some familiarity with Detroit’s new quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan.The last backup quarterback to elicit any sort of confidence in me if 9 wasn’t able to get under center was Shaun Hill, and that is a deep cut. While Stafford has been relatively healthy Matt Prater Jersey , gutting it out through a variety of injuries the past couple of years, Detroit has been pretty fortunate when it comes to the health of their quarterback. If Tom Savage is the guy the team has to look toward in the event of Stafford missing snaps, history doesn’t paint a pretty picture: Savage has just two wins in nine opportunities, throwing five touchdowns to seven interceptions.Your turn.Tweets from https://twitter.com/PrideOfDetroit/lists/lions-coverage
