Matthew Stafford underplays the loss of Calvin Johnson

The Detroit Lions head into the 2016 season without one of the best players in franchise history after wide receiver Calvin Johnson announced his retirement during the spring. For a team that struggled through a seven-win 2015 campaign, this loss should have a severe impact in its ability to contend for a playoff spot this upcoming season. After all, Johnson has been the team...

Why Detroit Lions fans should appreciate Matthew Stafford

In the 2009 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions held the first overall pick after becoming the first team in NFL history to go 0-16 in a season. During that season, Dan Orlovsky, Daunte Culpepper, and Jon Kitna all started at quarterback, showing insecurity at the position. So, with that first pick, the Lions drafted a young gunslinger from Georgia by the name of Matthew Stafford. Stafford...

Did Lions not get Matthew Stafford's history-making ball?

Matthew Stafford has been one of the most prolific passers in the history of the NFL during his early career. It may not seem possible, but Stafford’s numbers don’t lie and this past weekend he became the fastest player to the 25,000-yard mark. Naturally, the ball that was thrown for the history-making mark would be of value to the quarterback and the Detroit Lions organization...

The 2015 Detroit Lions are a shocking disappointment

In 2008, the Detroit Lions made history in a way that can only be described as the complete opposite of winning the Super Bowl. They went 0-16 on their way to becoming the worst team in NFL history and one of the worst teams of all time, period. As a result, then-owner William Clay Ford Sr. cleaned house. Head coach Rod Marinelli along with most of his staff were fired, offensive...

Report: Stafford’s future with Lions ‘very much in doubt’
