Hey Detroit Lions, were in a Recession! 

According to Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com, Stafford’s deal is worth $78 million over six years, with $41.7 million guaranteed.

Are you for real......  

Gotta love America,  Where else can you make $78 million dollars for throwing a football? 

What is wrong with us.

Unfortunately for Stafford, he will join the ranks of Joey Harrington, Alex Smith, Dante Culpepper, Chris Simms, Bryon Leftwich, Ryan Leaf and Michael Vick as scrubs.
