Lions Stafford completes 'Jaw-dropping' passes
It’s an old adage that an NFL quarterback takes huge strides between his rookie and second seasons.
Most everyone in Detroit expects that to happen with Matthew Stafford, the first overall pick in 2009, who showed glimpses of greatness in the 2-14 2009 season.
He got beat up pretty badly due to a few holes in the offense — to put it mildly. Still, he proved he’s a warrior. No Texas pansy.
It’s hard not to hype the kid (He’s just 22 years old.) His passes during OTAs have put smiles on coaches, coordinators and fellow teammates.
Perhaps linebacker Zack Follett, who was a rookie last year too, put it best: “Stafford, you can tell he’s comfortable out there because the throws he’s making are pretty jaw-dropping.”
