the jury is still out

But today gave me a glimmer of hope that after 50 years the Lions have found their franchise quarterback. 5 TDs in a game is a lot for a rookie even against crappy competition like Cleveland. And 422 yards is a Lions record, more than the great Scott Mitchell ever put up. Some of his throws were excellent, and today he showed he can move to create plays. We'll see when the dust settles at the end of the year, but I continue to like what I see from Stafford.

I will likely watch the game tonight, but I did get to listen to the game. He is definitely inconsistent, which will lead to years of game heartbreaks, but I think that there is a lot of pluses to actually winning a few games that I think can do. Now we just need to protect him. Playing against Minnesota twice a year is going to kill him. Also was nice to see the highlight of him actually putting some arch on the ball where his tall receivers could go up and get it.
