Thread: Are we seeing Stafford take the next step?

  1. Talking with the Lions GM last year Martin Mayhew, he said one of the biggest hurdles for Stafford to get through was his tendency to rely on his strong arm.
    Stafford would hold onto the ball, and then, try to stick his fastball in a very tight window, and too many times the result being an int. It sounds like he is getting the ball out quicker and taking something off his fastball. Stafford has the tools, its a matter of how quickly he learns from his mistakes, and then applies that knowledge on game day.

    Haven't watched much of the Lions so far, but judging from last year, everything about Stafford, from his peformance to how he carried himself was very positive. He has great upside and I don't think it will take him too long to develop. I would bet he takes a step up this year. Scoring helps protect the back end of the defense, but I do see lack of bodies as a potential problem. On defense there's nothing better than a deep rotation up front, and you know other guys will get hurt. But all in all, I think the NFC North is becoming a tough division top to bottom, like in the nineties.
    Oh and GoBigOrGoHome;
    He's like the skid mark that never quite comes out of your boxer shorts. Go away, already.
    Two words... Oxy Clean. You throw it in Martz's eyes, he's blind, he's out of the game. Your welcome.

    Thanks for the inside Turk; Jim Schwartz looks like the Man to help Stafford with those needed improvements. Seems like he's a guy going through the Rookie motions but should develop into a good QB.
