The Facts: Stafford lost eight games to a back injury last year in Detroit. He is progressing from the fracture that ended his 2019 campaign and vows to be ready for the Lions' offseason program. Despite Stafford coming off an injury, Lions G.M. Bob Quinn said the team is content with Stafford as their starting quarterback moving into the 2020 season.
Diehards Line: "Yeah, I'm totally comfortable and happy that Matthew Stafford is our quarterback," Quinn said in an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio. "He's going to be in full health once the offseason program starts its course. He's pretty much at full health right now. He's feeling great. He's in a good mindset. He's excited." Quinn praised Stafford for his work with backup quarterback Jeff Driskel and David Blough as they covered his starts for the remainder of last season. Still, Detroit was unable to win a single game in Stafford's absence as they plummeted to a 3-12-1 finish for the year. Both Quinn and HC Matt Patricia are getting another year to prove they deserve to stick around longer. It's safe to say Stafford gives them a head start on that.
