Detroit Lions Notes, Quotes 2008-10-29
--Free agent QB Daunte Culpepper worked out for the Lions on Tuesday, but he did not immediately sign a contract. The Lions placed starting QB Jon Kitna on injured reserve two weeks ago due to a back injury, and backup QB Dan Orlovsky has lost back-to-back starts. Culpepper, 31, announced his retirement just before the season began, but he recently talked with the Chiefs about their quarterback situation.


--The Lions are sick. "Losing is a disease," Marinelli said. "It's kind of a disease, and the way you fight it is, you've got to stay tough. You've got to be consistent. You've got to have a belief in what you're doing, and that's how you fight it. If you give in to it and just say, 'Well, let's do this or do that or do this,' I don't think you can beat it." But does Marinelli have the right medicine? "Yeah," Marinelli said. "Fundamentals. Execution."

--Center Dominic Raiola has a message for opponents who might take the Lions lightly. "If people come out thinking we're a cakewalk, that's fine," Raiola said. "But you better protect yourself, because, you know, we're going to strap it up and hit you every week."

--Tight end Casey Fitzsimmons has bruised organs and damaged cartilage after taking a knee to the ribs Sunday against Washington. "I haven't slept since Saturday," he said. "It hurts to breathe, and it hurts to lay, and it hurts to sit. It hurts to walk. It hurts to do everything." Still, he hopes to protect his ribs and play Sunday at Chicago.
