Matthew Stafford burst onto the scene in the 2011-2012 season after two injury-plagued years. Many people were doubtful on whether he could produce because he seemed to be very injury-prone.
The Lions will need his presence at quarterback next season if they would like to have a chance at being a Super Bowl contender. Stafford is trying to prove people wrong who are calling last year's Lions team a fluke.
Stafford has the confidence of an NFL veteran and the arm of a superstar quarterback. He is poised to have another breakout season in 2012. Look for him to improve on his numbers from last year and lead the Lions into a deep playoff run.
