Stafford takes aim at Tebow — or does he?
If you think Matthew Stafford is nervous about his first playoff game, you don’t know the kid. He can’t wait.
He knows full well that playoffs are what separates good quarterbacks from great quarterbacks. In his explanation he may have been referring to a certain Denver Broncos quarterback, although he never said Tim Tebow’s name.
“Win, that’s what you have to do that’s what people are judged by this time of year, quarterbacks. And a fun thing for me is this offense, a lot of it’s on me getting able to throw the ball around, that’s awesome,’’ Stafford said on Tuesday.
“I’d rather have it that way then go out there and throw eight passes in a game and have us win. it’s fun to go out there and sling it around and see what happens,’’ he added.
In the Broncos’ loss to Kansas City Sunday, Tebow was six of 22 for 60 yards and an interception.
