Lions | Confident in Matthew Stafford

The Detroit Lions are very confident in the future of QB Matthew Stafford after he has taken a slight step backwards in his second full season as their starting quarterback. "I don't know where Peyton (Manning) was after four years exactly, but I think Matt's definitely on track to be one of the best quarterbacks ever to play this position," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. Stafford is approaching his second straight 5,000 yard passing season. He would be only the second QB in history to reach that mark twice (New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is the other). Linehan believes Stafford's drop in production has had to do with the team's struggles at wideout this year. Detroit receivers also lead the league in dropped passes with 37.
