Stafford: Skull & Bones

Not that I care about this writer  who wrote this article or anything, but there are a couple interesting quotes:

“He’s better than anybody in the building,” Linehan says, before catching himself. “Hopefully not better than me, but pretty close.”

“You never, ever get the sense there’s something he doesn’t know,” left tackle Jeff Backus (notes) says. “I just think that’s impressive to be able to do that, to stand up in front of your teammates and basically act like you’re the offensive coordinator. He has control at that time in the meeting. He tells everybody what’s going to happen.”

Stafford says his AC joint has been “wired down,“I would probably break a bone again before I separate it,” Stafford says. “I mean, I don’t even think it can be separated.”



I think we all know that what separates QBs in this league is how they read and react to defenses. Stafford, by all recent accounts, has been very good in this area. His quick reads this offseason, coupled with the uptempo pace of the offense gives me great hope.

This is also the sort of thing that gets my blood flowing! -

Linehan trusts Stafford so much, he says he has given him “a little bit of carte blanche” with Johnson. If Stafford sees a matchup Johnson can exploit with his 6-foot-5, 240-pound frame, he is free to flash a subtle signal – a hand gesture, a nod, a tilt of the head, just a look – to change the route on the fly.
