Is it time for the Detroit Lions to move on from Matthew Stafford?
That is a question that some have been asking for years and as the losses continue to pile up for the Lions, it is a question that more and more people have been bringing up.
One of those people, who happens to be a good friend of Stafford, is former Lions quarterback and current ESPN analyst, Dan Orlovsky.
In November, Orlovsky tweeted out a list of teams that should “gladly” trade for New York York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold if the cost is a 2nd and 5th round pick, and because it includes the Lions, the list really has me thinking.
Now, I really respect Orlovsky’s opinions, but I believe he has lost his mind on this one and it has nothing to do with me wanting to roll with Stafford in 2021. The reason why I would not make this deal is that I am not a big believer in Darnold. I think he is an average NFL quarterback who will never lead a team to the promised land.
If the Lions are going to move on from Stafford, they should select a quarterback with their first pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Nation, if the Lions decide it is time to part ways with Stafford, would you like to see them trade for Sam Darnold?
