Opinions on quarterbacks who haven’t yet broken through for Super Bowls tend to be all over the map. Matthew Stafford’s might look like a spray chart.
The annual NFL Network poll of players ranked the Detroit Lions quarterback as the 31st-best player in a league of only 32 teams. The list Cheap Jerseys hasn’t yet revealed which players ranked above Stafford, but he came in just in front of Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters, Titans running back DeMarco Murray and Seahawks safety Cam Chancellor. Among quarterbacks, he was rated better than Cam Newton, Marcus Mariota and Andrew Luck. This is Stafford’s first appearance on this top 100 list in three seasons.
On Thursday, CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco released his own top 100 list. Stafford made the cut but all the way down at 96. He was one spot behind Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett and one above Steelers guard David DeCastro. Among quarterbacks, the obvious suspects of Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan, Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger ranked higher, but so did Philip Rivers, Luck, Russell Wilson and Derek Carr.
That’s quite a gap between two polls.
Stafford is Cheap nfl Jerseys coming off a season that showcases a bit of his up-and-down nature. It was his first without Calvin Johnson, and he came storming out of the gates as an MVP candidate through Detroit’s surprising 9-4 start. That run featured an NFL-record eight fourth-quarter comeback wins and got Lions coach Jim Caldwell at one point to say that Stafford was “well on his way” to the Hall of Fame.
Then the middle finger of Stafford’s throwing hand dislocated, his numbers flat-lined and the Lions lost their final four games.
His eighth NFL Customized Jerseys season produced a final stat line that was one of his best: 4,327 yards, 65.3 percent completion, 24 touchdowns, 10 interceptions, 93.3 rating and a career-high 207 rushing yards.
It didn’t bring the long-awaited first playoff victory, as a 26-6 wildcard loss to the Seahawks dropped him to 0-3 all-time in the postseason. And it didn’t get him to his second career Pro Bowl, as he missed the cut behind Rodgers, Ryan and Dak Prescott.
But demonstrating the ability to move on from Johnson and to play through a difficult injury could help make Stafford one of the richest players to ever play the game when he irons out a new contract with the Lions, which could potentially come this summer.
Quarterback deals are Detroit Lions Jerseys
astronomical now that the league depends so much on the position and the salary cap continues to rise. The Lions have expressed every desire to keep him despite the presumed cost because he’s clearly so much better than any reasonable alternative they could find.
