Re: Lions with Mathew Stafford vs. Winning Teams
Rivers has been in a funk compared to his "prime" years for two years now, and it wouldn't surprise me in the least to see him return to the production he once had if they can protect him. The point is he has done it.
Stafford had a down year last year....but he's already proven to put up some insane numbers and helped his team to the playoffs. Bradford has done....neither.
Stafford & Bradford are of the same tier. Both are talented, but both have something to prove - Stafford needs to prove 2011 wasn't a fluke, and Bradford needs to prove he can be productive and help his team win now that he has the appropriate weapons around him (Tavon, great TE duo, Givens, solid line, great defense)
