Since the arrival of new head coach Jim Caldwell and his “ladder cam,” Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has gotten a whole new perspective on Matthew Stafford.
The Lions off-season workouts are coming to a close, and football finally takes its long summer nap.
“You’re representing the Detroit Lions and that’s the reason they have the Lion on the front of the hat.”
Since they hired Jim Caldwell, I’ve questioned their every move.
Evidently, Stafford has met and even exceeded Lombardi’s expectations.
At what point does Stafford start taking this personally? Every coach was hired as a quarterback whisperer.
Despite the significant amount of work required to learn the new system, Stafford says he and his teammates are enjoying the process.
The only other Detroit athlete (well, someone who was a Detroit athlete) to make the list was Prince Fielder, who is making $24 million.
“I want to be as good as I can possibly be, and not for myself but to help this team win. That’s the No. 1 goal.”
Let’s just say, it’s something to see. And yes, we’re still talking about the ring.
