Quarterback Matt Stafford was taken first overall in the NFL Draft some years back, and was pegged as the savior for the Detroit Lions’ franchise. But the Lions have not lived up to expectations, to say the least. The blame can not all be placed on Stafford’s shoulders, but in the NFL, quarterback’s get not only the glory but also the blame.
As rer NFL.com’s Ian Rappaport, Matt Stafford’s future with the organization is very much in doubt. There is no commitment to him beyond this season (which has been a disaster so far).
The future beyond 2015 for #Lions QB Matthew Stafford is very much in doubt, as I understand it.
