  • Yes, our notes kick off again with our favorite football TV show “Good Morning Football.” On Thursday, they were discussing whether Alex Smith was the NFC’s most underrated quarterback now that he has been traded to Washington. Both Nate Burleson and Kyle Brandt don’t think so. In fact, one thinks it’s Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford that holds that honor, and it’s not the host you think:

  • Back in 2015, Stafford had one of the most lethal red-zone attacks in recent NFL history:

  • The NFL asked notable rookies to draw/paint their new team’s logos from memory. Let’s hope Kerryon Johnson is a little better at running the ball than he is at drawing:

  • There has been a lot of buzz around both Michael Roberts and Luke Willson, but DetroitLionsPodcast.com’s Lucas Walker makes a nice argument as to why Levine Toilolo could be more than a backup tight end in Detroit.

  • Both Matthew Stafford and Matt Patricia met with the media on Thursday. You can watch their press conferences below (or here and here):
