Quarterback Mathew Stafford officially signed his new three-year $53 million contract extension with the Detroit Lions this morning. Officially signed the deal! Thank you ford family! @kellybhall & I are happy to be in Detroit for at least 5 more! Love this team and city! — Matthew Stafford (@Staff_9) July 10, 2013 Stafford says he wanted to help the team create more cap space...
Yesterday, the Lions officially nailed down their franchise quarterback. When Stafford signed on the proverbial dotted line, he instantly became $27.5 million richer. Now the question has to be asked; is Stafford worth the money?
In short, my answer to that question is no, but as with most issues, it's not an open and shut case. Let me explain my reasoning.
It was recently reported that the Broncos improved their initial offer to offensive tackle Ryan Clady, but it doesn’t seem like it helped much right now.
According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the Broncos and Clady have “significant work to do.”
Clady and Denver have until July 15th to work out a deal. That’s only six days away. If they can’t agree to an extension...
The Detroit Lions and QB Matthew Stafford have come to terms on a three-year, $53 million contract extension. Stafford was highly involved in the contract process, according to Lions president Tom Lewand.
“Matthew really drove this process,” Lewand said. “He worked hard on the contract front and, for him, it really was more about the process, more about being here, more about...
Matthew Stafford is not shaken by Donovan McNabb’s recent criticism.
Stafford said this on “Mike and Mike in the Morning”:
“I understand his point of view.
I totally get that. I’m all about wins and losses as well . It didn’t happen for us last year.
“That’s something that’s obviously extremely important, especially playing the quarterback position. You get the...
After signing his new 3-year $53 million deal, opinions ranged far and wide on Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. Stafford’s ability and talent have never been in question, but his production and team results have left a lot to be desired. He threw just 20 Touchdowns last season and is 1-23 against teams with a winning record.
So when Donovan McNabb let it be known that...
Donovan McNabb seems to become more opinionated by the day now that he has retired. The latest target of his criticism is Matthew Stafford, who signed a three-year extension with the Detroit Lions this week that will pay him $43 million in guaranteed money. To the surprise of no one, McNabb doesn’t think Stafford deserves [...]
When Tony Romo received his contract extension earlier this offseason, Donovan McNabb came out and blasted the move by the Cowboys.
“What has he really done for the Detroit Lions?” McNabb said on Tuesday’s Total Access, via Down and Distance. “Nothing.”
McNabb continued his criticism.
“It’s about wins and losses again. Now, as a quarterback and as Matt Stafford, hey...
When it comes to former NFL draft picks who are under the microscope by fans, critics, and experts, most of them are the names of Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, and Russelll Wilson. Those three rookies of 2012 had incredible seasons leading their team through great games and to the playoffs. There is a lot of focus and expectations on their upcoming sophomore season. But the former...
Since his retirement from the NFL, former QB Donovan McNabb has been pretty vocal about current NFL quarterbacks whether it’s how they play, contracts they’ve received or if they should get a second chance which were his thoughts on former Titans/Eagles QB Vince Young.
So it would only be natural for McNabb to comment on the $41.5 million dollars in guaranteed money Matthew...
