Matthew Stafford, who is 31, was selected by the Detroit Lions with No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.
Since then, Stafford has been a lightning rod in the Motor City, despite being one of the most physically and mentally gifted quarterbacks in the league.
In fact, many have said, “If Stafford was drafted by another organization, he may have a Super Bowl by now,” while others say, “Stafford is what is holding the Lions back.”
Well, Matthew Stafford 2.0 is on his way he will almost assuredly play for an organization other than the Detroit Lions.
Joe Burrow is currently the quarterback for the No. 1 ranked LSU Tigers and his play on the field has reminded many of what Stafford did why he was at the University of Georgia. In 9 starts with LSU this season, Burrow has completed mind-boggling 78.9% of his passes for 3,198 yards and 33 touchdown passes to go along with just four interceptions.
If the season ended today, there is no doubt that Burrow would be awarded the Heisman Trophy, and he would likely be the No. 1 selection in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Though many would love to see Burrow (Stafford 2.0) in a Lions uniform, chances are he will be going from the Bayou Bengals to the Cincinnati Bengals.
