    There is no way Stafford is gone from Detroit with that amount of dead money his contract carries.

  • Joe Randazzo Jr. Jr.

    Stafford is gonna lead the Lions to a playoff win in 2030, not 2020. The #3 pick this year: draft another TE.

    Tank for tight-ends. Finish in the bottom 5 every year, until you're loaded with TEs. The offense will be Stafford plus 10 TEs - completely revolutionizing the game of football. Defenses won't know how to stop them. Then Detroit wins a 6-3 wild card game against the Panthers in 2030, eventually losing in the next round. Stafford can step down as a legend for winning a playoff game - Detroit raises a banner in the rafters while Stafford rides off in the sunset.

    Hot take: You give Kirk Cousins SF's running game and defense he defo would do better than Jimmy G.

    Max is the same guy who said Matthew Stafford is overrated and not a franchise QB. Way to be consistent with your opinion Max.

    The thing is... He’s got better weapons in Detroit than he would in NE. An emerging top WR in the league in Kenny Golladay and a veteran stud in Marvin Jones. Not to mention Amendola if we resign him, and Hockenson if he can make a jump in year two.

    Stafford is great when we lose him here Detroit always these morons will see what they had. ANY team would gladly take Stafford and EVERY team would have drafted him number 1.

    The chargers have a pretty good O-line and offensive weapons. Their defense slowed slowed down some powerhouses the last few seasons. So I think the Chargers should sign Brady to a 2 year deal , draft one of these high upside QBs in this years draft and redshirt them until Brady’s completely finished. The Colts could maybe do the same thing if they sure up their O-line and defense (not sure how good they were this year) and acquire some good talent in the draft/FA.

    Stafford is Mahomes if Mahomes went to an organization that was 0-16 the previous year, started his rookie year behind an awful offensive line, with a bad coaching staff, for an organization that has won one playoff game in the Superbowl era. Tom Brady wouldn't have been "the GOAT" on the Detroit Lions and would have had to retire 5 years ago from all the hits. As a Lions fan I hope Stafford gets the chance to prove how great he is. This guy should have been as big a draw as Mahomes and he was stuck on the team that made Barry and Calvin Johnson leave early. Football is the ultimate team game and sometimes the best quarterbacks don't have the help they need. Elway was a shadow of himself when he won Superbowls. Marino never got the chance after putting up the best rookie year in history.

    Stafford is also too good to let a HORRIBLE team be horrible to get draft picks. He is always going to give you comeback victories and win you games you shouldn't. The Lions need to tank a year to be good. We need the picks. We need to SIT Tua like Mahomes got sat and get more draft picks. Start Blough. If he plays well then you have trade value. The Lion's can't be fixed in one year. Their defensive line sucks except for one player, their RB can't stay healthy for half the season, their O line is mediocre. The only decent unit is the WR crew/possibly tight ends if Hockenson turns out to be good.

    This trade would be the best thing for both teams. Do it. Other destinations for Stafford will never happen due to being in division. The Bears would probably give us the farm for Stafford, but that ain't happening.

    Pats can trade for the last year of Cousin's contract and only be stuck with him 1 year without spending a fortune on a QB then Minnesota should make a hard run for TB12.
    He'd be a great fit in Minnesota, they could even try to get Josh McDaniels too

    Stafford would be perfect for The Bears. Not the Pats.

    A lot of these morons don't understand that a QB can have a big arm and/or athletic, but that doesn't mean he's a great QB. A lot of it is intelligence, feel, etc.

    Love how Winston isn't even brought up when he might have the highest upside of any potential free agent quarterback aside from like Dak Prescott. I'm not saying Winston is a great quarterback, but he's certainly a better option than Mariota and he's shown flashes that he could possibly be a great player soon with the right coaching.
