The best day of the preseason is always the last one. It's finally over.
Starters barely stepped on the field during the 16 games Thursday night, but we still received an interesting snapshot of four quarterbacks who are at very different stages of their development.
Debate: Underrated/overrated teams
A month of positioning is done. Guys like Tebow have to sweat out roster cuts, while guys like Pryor wait to find out if they're starting. The best part: The waiting is almost over.
Here's what else we learned Thursday night:
14.Matthew Stafford was one of the rare starting quarterbacks to play a couple of series in his team's preseason finale. His lackluster preseason continued, as he completed only 1 of 6 passes for the Detroit Lions. Coach Jim Schwartz probably wanted Stafford to get more work because he has looked poor.
15. Running backs Joique Bell and Mikel Leshoure rotated with Lions starters, but it appears Bell has won the team's backup job. Pro Football Focus noted Bell gained 36 of his 52 yards after contact last week against the Patriots. His best run Thursday was a 23-yard touchdown dart that gave the Lions a 21-0 lead. Leshoure probably is safe for a roster spot, but he isn't a help on special teams and hasn't separated himself this summer.
