USA Today reports: Why Detroit... why? I wonder if the front off is aware of this... The Lions missed the postseason and Stafford's production waned in 2012 — he threw 21 fewer touchdown passes and completed 59.8% of his passes. Maybe some of the defensive players need to start missing tackles, shoot past the quarterback when they have a chance to sack him... maybe let that receiver get 20 yards down field past the secondary for the easy score... then the defensive players can sign those lucrative contracts! Stafford a franchise quarterback? This makes me sick. Put him on the trading block.. and see who wants him... at best he would be picked up as a "back up". Stafford... the Valverde of the Lions.
