Not to be a jerk, but I'm sorry for you Detroit fans. Matthew Stafford is the laziest player i've seen in a while. If you watch his games, you can clearly see that he has no passion for the game. They just sent their entire team in the wrong direction by trusting this guy.

Next year's draft class is chucked full of talented quarterbacks. So why did they pursue a quarterback this year? They wanted to pull a Matt Ryan. They wanted to get lucky and get a quarterback who will make things all better. Sorry guys, that's not happening.

If Stafford can't lead a team to a good season in college, what makes you think he will do any better in the NFL? Detroit should have loaded their defense with their 1st round picks. Now they're stuck with a bad QB who won't get the ball to their other 1st round pick. (Brandon Pettigrew)

 Mark Sanchez would have been a bit more reasonable than Stafford. Although he only played one season, I think he will do much better. People criticized Sanchez because he didn't have enough experience. I think about it the other way around. I believe that it's more impressive that led USC to a one-loss season to stomp on Penn St. in the Rose Bowl. He still has some developing to do, but he will have a much better career than Stafford. We will see what happens this season. Prove me wrong Mr. Stafford.
