MATTHEW STAFFORD RUMORS

Detroit Lions have a chance to prove they’re for real on Sunday

The Detroit Lions offense is no doubt one of the league’s best. Matthew Stafford makes his fair share of mistakes, and this team still hasn’t won a playoff game since 1991.

GIF: Matthew Stafford eludes Damontre Moore to hit Megatron wide open downfield

Matthew Stafford looked incredibly efficient during the first quarter of the Lions’ season opener against the Giants. On the above play the Lions’ signal caller elluded Damontre Moore, throwing across his body to find a wide open Calvin Johnson downfield for the touchdown.

Giants Can’t Solve The “Stafford Scrambles And Finds Calvin Johnson” Play As Megatron Gets His 2nd TD

  The Giants can’t stop the Lions’ playground football offensive game planning which seems to consist of “Matthew Stafford runs around for a bit and waits for Calvin Johnson to get open.” To be fair to the Giants, at least they made Stafford throw across his body and they had a Giants defender within 10 yards of Calvin Johnson. That’s an improvement from the last touchdown...

Detroit Lions: Sleeper Team To Watch in 2014?

The offseason presents a ray of sunshine across the NFL landscape. Each team is presented with a clean slate and a golden opportunity to fill various holes through the draft and free agency.
