Up front: you should all know that I’ve always been a Stafford supporter. Damn near unabashedly.
But Stafford hasn’t answered to ANYONE in his 11 professional years. He was always going to survive the HC changes, the GM switches, the FO hirings and firings. That’s what a semi-succesful former #1OA pick gets.
Honestly, though? Every loss, his answers are always the same. It’s always like pulling a string on an old toy. Cliche and tired. But hey – it worked.
But speaking personally, I’m tired of it. What does he & Kelly think they’re entitled to? He hasn’t won anything. Again, as one of his biggest supporters – he hasn’t won anything. So what is he looking for here? Joe Flacco has been given a pretty long leash in Baltimore – but he’s got a ring. Eli should’ve been ushered out a while ago – but he’s got rings.
What does the city of Detroit and the fans of this franchise “owe” Matthew Stafford? Because it seems like he’s trying to make another withdrawal.
“Stafford said he doesn’t hear most of the slights directed his way and doesn’t know why he’s become a lightning rod for criticism by former quarterbacks.”
He doesn’t, yet his wife seems to be there the moment they drop? Sounds like Matthew & Erik Karlsson have some wives that need to meet eachother.
Sorry … but again, even as one of his biggest supporters … this is getting old.
