IMO it is mostly just about wins
if the Lions had 8 wins right now people would say Stafford is playing awesome with the exact same stats
I really hate how people equate Ws with the QB...it completely undermines the other 52 players on the roster, as if winning and losing is just the QB's doing and the others do nothing.
It is the most simplistic way of rating someone possible..."oh he is on a good team so that means he is GOOD!!!
