Super Bowl Champion head coach: Maybe Matthew Stafford needs to go ‘someplace else’
Whether you like it or not, Matthew Stafford is and will be the Detroit Lions quarterback for the foreseeable future.
But one former Super Bowl Champion head coach believes Stafford may be better off if he leaves the Motor City.
On Wednesday, former Baltimore Ravens head coach and current NFL analyst Brian Billick commented on Stafford and what he believes may be best for the Lions’ signal caller.
From Detroit Free Press:
“Frankly, maybe he does need to go someplace else for himself,” NFL Network analyst Brian Billick said Wednesday at Super Bowl LIII. “Cause to carry that (burden of not making the playoffs) around after 10 years and to take on that responsibility, fair or not, like Joe Flacco. Joe Flacco will go someplace and I think not withstanding where he goes and who he goes with, could do very well. Joe Flacco’s a good quarterback.”
“One of the hardest things to do is to separate the play of a quarterback from what’s going on around him,” Billick said. “How much is him, how much is what’s going on around him. I think they need to – if they want to kick Matthew Stafford to the street, there’s a whole bunch of teams that would love to see him (available).”
One person who believes that Darrell Bevell taking over as offensive coordinator will help Stafford is NFL Network analyst Michael Robinson, who played for Bevell while he was with the Seattle Seahawks.
