Matthew definitely deserved winning this award. Sure the other nominees were great too.
Stafford, thanks for being such a class act.
Stafford: "I want to say how happy and thankful I am to share this with the city of Detroit. It's on a comeback of it's own, doing great things. It's been through a lot, the city has been through a lot, and we're just one of teams trying to make them happy and proud, give them something to cheer for. This is for my teammates and the city of Detroit."
With all the negative news about the team in recent months, nothing can bring me down knowing that Detroit's two big stars are the catalysts to bringing a championship to Detroit. And it's motivation is not only for themselves and their coaches, teammates, family, and friends. It's for the city of Detroit. Giving the city and the state something to cheer about is truly amazing.
Proud to be a Lions fan.
