Lions possibly looking to move Stafford

Ah, the good old chuck and duck.

 

It’s not as easy as Brady makes it look! It’s all about the continuous follow thru.  Then, of course, you have to start whining if you felt a breeze due a player near you and no flag is thrown.

I don’t buy it, tenure dictates that Patricia needs to start winning games or he is toast.

 

They have the QB, WR and RB. Look for them to try and bolster that D and become competitive.

Aren’t they on the hook for a ton of dead cap if they move him? Not to mention he’s still a very good QB.

Yes. He can't be moved this year.

32 million dead cap hit.  This isn't happening.  Could it be a desperate smokescreen to get a team to trade up to #2 to take Tua so Chase Young falls to them at #3?  Possibly.  I think a team trades up with Washington for that #2 spot for Tua regardless though.

Ah!  “Stragedy”, as Curly would say. 😁

They should absolutely look to move on from Stafford.  If you don't have a top 5 QB (which he never was, and never will be), or a young QB on a rookie deal, then you are in the "messy middle" and destined to live in a constant state of purgatory.  You'll never be good enough to reach a conference final, and you probably won't ever be bad enough to get a top draft pick.  

 

Stafford isn't a bad QB, or a bad guy, but in this day and age, you can't cling to a guy just because you see him as "good" or "good enough"

The problem becomes the contracts.  He is being paid like a top QB but he's not.  His team is cash strapped bc of it, and he can't carry the team....

I think the question they have to ask themselves is how much longer does Stafford want to play? The guy is still pretty young at 31-32 (same age as Russell Wilson), but has played a long time and has been injured a bunch. He’s definitely a likely candidate to hang it up early a la Luck and Romo. 
 

If you are Detroit rather than wait for Stafford to leave you at the altar in a few years do you jump at the opportunity to draft a guy who can hold the fort for the next ten-fifteen years? 
 

Keep in mind the regime in Detroit (Quinn and Patricia) received a stay of execution from the owner. They badly need to win games this season in order to keep their jobs so doubt they trade Stafford.
