4 myths about Matthew Stafford that should be busted into oblivion

Many statements have been made about Matthew Stafford already, and many more will enter the national conversation as we get closer to Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season.

“He’s been held back by the Detroit Lions franchise”

“He has one of the top three arms in the NFL”

“Stafford makes too many bonehead throws”

“He was throwing incredible sidewinder completions for years before Patrick Mahomes”



“His legal name at birth was actually Staff Mattford”

“His 41 touchdown passes in 2011 were more than the Lions had scored as an entire team in the previous 50 years combined”

Some statements will be fact, some will be fiction.
