PODcast: The evolution of Matthew Stafford

He’s taken the next step. Who gets the credit? Where does it go from here?

NFL: Washington Redskins at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Matthew Stafford is the Lions quarterback. He’s 28, he’s from Texas and played at the University of Georgia. You know all this. But did you know he’s evolving? That’s right, it’s right before your eyes. Sunday’s victory over Washington has gotten the national media talking about Matthew Stafford, which brings its own sense of excitement and trepidation.

Are we going to talk about it on this episode of the Pride Of Detroit PODcast? You know we are. We also recap Washington and do our favorite segments. All in a day’s work and it’s here for your ears. Enjoy.

(Full disclosure, I once had an article in drafts titled “The next evolution of Matthew Stafford” and it was a Pokemon joke. Jeremy deleted it.)
