It's Stafford........I have, as of course thousands of us have done through the years been witness to countless Detroit Q.B's, have of course watched 100's if not 1000's of football games. Have seen thousands of football players come and go, and I do not do this often. But.....Right here, right now I have to proclaim before the season starts and everyone else starts throwing extra Stafford love around, and says "oh man, I knew Stafford would be great"........ I have a man love crush on this kid...
Barring injury of course, this will happen..
Matt Stafford will go to the Pro Bowl this year, will be ranked in the top 8 Q.B.'s in the league this year but will become a top 5 Q.B. in future years, and will go down as the top 2 or 3 Q.B.'s in Detroit history(not hard).
This guy has "IT". He has proven to me to correct the one and only thing that I seen as a weakness last year, his accuracy. He's still rifling when he has to, but to become more accurate he's taken off a bit from his throws, and he's not just hitting his receivers, he's hitting them in stride, and in the chest.
He grasps this offense which is just perfect for him, as good if not better then Linehan. I give all the credit in the world to Mayhew, Schwartz and Linehan for putting this kid in perfect position to succeed, and Stafford has the perfect temperament to do it.
This kid is a Marino and Peyton Manning all wrapped in one. Marino for the arm, and Manning for his grasp of the offense.No I haven't been drinking. Believe me when I say I do not jump on a athletes bandwagon often, laugh all you want, but this is going to be one fantastic, I don't want to say one of he best ever, but okay, I drooled enough I'll say it.....One of the best ever Q.B's to play the game.
