Matthew Stafford deserves Pro Bowl selection, but he needs YOUR help

Look folks, I’m not one to mince words, and I’m not going to start now. The Detroit Lions are, at best, a “so-so” team. They have no running game whatsoever, a feast-or-famine defense, a coaching staff that constantly makes you scratch your head, and an offensive line that’s, quite frankly, offensive.

BUT… They have one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL behind that horrible line. A quarterback that’s had SEVEN 100-yard rushers by his side in a game in his entire professional career?!….. what??

And he’s coming off one heck of a performance.

Forget that, he’s having one heck of a YEAR.

That’s right, Stafford is only behind Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger in yards and is near the top in touchdowns and completions, and is also 6th-best in passer rating, ahead of names like Russell Wilson, Philip Rivers, and Matt Ryan.

But here’s the rub, the Pro Bowl is a popularity contest, and sometimes the most deserving do not get the nod, which is why Stafford, as well as Darius Slay, Glover Quin, Golden Tate, Matt Prater, and Eric Ebron (just jokes folks) need your help.
