Should I break out the smelling salts?

I think anyone paying attention knew he was going to get the new largest contract in history.
My personal opinion of Stafford is that he is good enough to win a Super Bowl IF he has enough talent around him. He certainly needs MORE talent around him than a few QB's but I think there are some QB's who couldn't win a Super Bowl no matter the talent around them.

To me the contract itself is less interesting than the fact that it happened under the soon to be 92 year old Martha Ford regime.

Stafford got overpaid...BIG TIME. He has done absolutely nothing to earn that type of pay day. But the Lions need him a lot more than he needs the Lions. So, the Lions had little choice but to give him a massive pay day.

At the end of the day, the Lions will continue to be an exercise in futility, and it would not surprise me at all if Mr. Stafford does not win a single playoff game during the remainder of his time here in Detroit.

This is probably the most accurate, to-the-point description I have ever heard or read of the Lions organization.

To illustrate just how absurd this contract is:

Tom Brady Salary: $20.5 million
Tom Brady playoff wins: 25

Matthew Stafford Salary: $27 million
Matthew Stafford playoff wins: 0

So basically Brady gets paid less than $1 million per playoff win and Stafford's can't even be calculated because division by 0 is an illegal mathematical operation.

Thank you, sir. :)

I love the fact you were able to employ the phrase "illegal mathematical operation" to describe the Stafford deal....that's very good stuff! Results matter. Unless you are the Detroit Lions, of course.

I'd say he earned his keep yesterday.

Problem is, only 15 more games to go before either a playoff miss or a playoff loss.

If the defense can keep that up we may be ok...

This Arizona team he faced yesterday is probably an 8-8 team.

Let's see how he looks on the ROAD against someone good!

Carson Palmer is starting to look more and more like Cap Rooney (with a weaker arm). Glad they didn't bring in Steamin' Willie Beamen

The Giants are in for a LOOOONG season.

Stafford, once again, earned his pay. Nobody will complain about it until they lose a few games.

should we consider this the official 2017-18(?) Detroit Lions thread?
