Ever since Matthew Stafford came into the NFL, there have been those who have questioned his ability to lead a football team. Many of those concerns have come up because since being drafted first overall by the Detroit Lions in 2009, he has not led his team to a single playoff win.
Well, one player who has absolute faith in Stafford as a leader is wide receiver, Danny Amendola.
Amendola not only thinks Stafford is a good leader but he believes the Lions' signal-caller is on par with the GOAT, Tom Brady.
From Detroit Free Press:
“His competitiveness. I love it,” receiver Danny Amendola said. “Fire. In his bones. Period.”
He said Stafford’s leadership style behind closed doors is “not much different than Tom” Brady’s, whom he played with for five seasons with the New England Patriots.
Wow, this sure is high praise from a player who played five seasons with Brady, who is the best of all time.
What do you think, Nation? Is Amendola just being nice or is Stafford really on par with Brady when it comes to leading a team?
