Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is not one for personal promotion. Sure, he does a commercial here and there, but he rather keep most of his life away from football to himself. He’s not on social media, he’s not out there trying to make headlines by stirring the pot or inserting himself into national conversations.
So when the Detroit Lions’ phenomenal mini-documentary series “Under the Helmet” series finally reached Stafford this week, it was quite the interesting look into the life of the franchise quarterback.
Stafford talks about his affinity for travel, love for being a dad, and his desire to help improve the city of Detroit. It’s a rare inside look at the typically private quarterback:
It’s a very well made six-minute video and it’s well worth your time, especially if you forget just how much Stafford has meant not only to the team, but to the city of Detroit over the past 10 years.
- In case you were wondering, it looks like the city of Detroit did not make a play for an XFL franchise.
- Former Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky breaks down the Arizona Cardinals team and how the play of rookie quarterback Josh Rosen is improving and suggests the Cardinals offense may be more threatening than it appears:
- Damon Harrison Sr. isn’t the only “Snacks” connoisseur on the Lions’ defensive line. Da’Shawn Hand considers himself an expert on snack food and he shared his favorites with the Lions media on Wednesday.
- Speaking of Snacks, Harrison was supposedly supposed to be the Giants’ Walter Payton Man of the Year candidate, but since he was traded, the Giants chose safety Michael Thomas:

Hard work in the community won’t stop! Still have the Christmas party in NY for the kids to prep for! As well as holiday gifts down in TX and Louisiana. My foundation is doing great work!— Damon Harrison Sr. (@snacks) December 6, 2018
- We’re 10 years into the Matthew Stafford era in Detroit. ESPN’s Michael Rothstein looks at the past 10 years and wonders where the Lions franchise is headed with Stafford in the immediate future.
- Kenny Golladay has been a little quiet as of late, but he’s still putting up some exciting numbers for a second-year receiver:
