Another issue with the Lions offense is that they're INCREDIBLY slow paced and predictable, I assume this is intentionally trying to protect the defense and keep them off the field, but it's doing no one any favors.

They always snap the ball with less than 5 on the play clock

Tabor might be the worst of all time.  Keep playing him. 

He is not supplying enough value for where he was  picked, but it just goes back to the fact that Quinn still hasn't built enough depth in this roster. They didn't have another  waiting in the wings, they don't have O-Line depth when guys get nicked up. Which is why a miss like Teez hurts more than it should.

That’s a Stafford thing

Is it? They ran hurry up at times last year, and he did great. I remember the game threads often demanding the team do it more. Why can't they ever do it now? They huddle up before every play.

They try to run a trick play and the LT gets beaten without even touching his guy lol

Lions top 5 highest paid players:

Stafford

Ansah

Slay

Lang

Wagner

Ansah, Wagner, and Lang have combined to make 35 million/year

Do you think they've contributed more or less than Stafford?

How about Nevin Lawson at 4.6 million?

Is Stafford Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers or one of those guys who can just win with 0 help? No, there's a reason those guys are going straight to the hall of fame. I wish the Lions hadn't re-signed him so he could go to a real franchise and win a bunch of games and then everyone would be crying about that instead of blaming him. But alas, he's gone the Barry/Calvin route of never winning anything.

 

We were told that once Stafford got a running game magic would happen and the guy would take off. He's got Kerryon Johnson and he's still playing subpar football. Yeah, he's been sacked a billion times today (hanging onto the football too long is partly to blame) but he's still playing poor football. Do you really think Stafford this season has lived up to his $29 million contract?

Peace out. JBC did not have his side ready to play today. Only Minnesota mistakes kept it from being a blowout earlier.

Not taking up 20% of a team's salary cap for 6-10 level results. Are you really defending Stafford? The guy has played like a straight bum in at least four games now (Jets, 49'ers, Seahawks and today) and is one of the highest paid players in the league. If I am paying a QB $29 million, I demand better results than this.

yeah, and he was almost perfect against the dolphins, beat tom brady and the pats and aaron rogers and the packers.  you cherry pick the bad games as if no other qb has them.

look, stafford is not an elite nfl qb, but he is a good nfl qb.  he's as good as matt ryan (who makes more than he does), he's as good as cam newton, he's as good as alex smith.  he's a top 10ish qb in the league.

last year he has how many 4th quarter comebacks?  he single handedly got this team to wins.  he is capable of being very good.

this year he's been up and down, but blaming the season on stafford is silly.  and getting rid of him so you can pay a bad rookie qb to play is a recipe to be the buffalo bills.  

i will wait patiently for the draft to come and for you to complain that the lions are stupid for not taking brian lewerke.  and the  i will mock you for it for the next decade.

It just seems like a deliberate thing

You aren't supposed to say that as a Lions fan, only make excuses for the $29 million man. You are supposed to tow the company line and talk about how hard it is to find good QB's in the NFL and how lucky we are to have Stafford, otherwise we would have as many wins as teams with bad QB's. It's NEVER Stafford's fault.

Truer words have never been spoken. 

 

This team will NEVER win with Stafford at QB.  If you havent figured that out TEN YEARS later, youre straight up clueless.

I don't think you've mentioned his pay nearly enough.

Didn't you say that Sanchez was better than Stafford and wanted to draft Connor Cook?  You have no credibility to speak on the subject.

At least Patricia can fire Jim Bob at the end of the season like he should've been when he came in. Thanks again Martha.
