Detroit Lions legend weighs in on Matthew Stafford sitting out

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has a broken back and there has been quite a bit of debate as to whether the Lions should shut him down for the rest of the season.

One person who agrees that shutting Stafford down is the right move is former Lions great, Herman Moore.

From Detroit Free Press:

“I would look at it and say, ‘What is there to gain?' ” said the former Lions receiver, who was in Port Huron on Tuesday for Fox Sports Detroit's Football Week in Michigan Bus Tour.

“If this team was postseason bound, which it looks very bleak right now, I would try to bring Stafford back. But I don't know if it's worth the risk.”

“I do believe at this point it may not be a bad idea to consider it,” Moore said. “That's ultimately not my decision or the fans' — that's the team's.”

Nation, do you agree with Moore?
