When the Detroit Lions selected Matthew Stafford with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft, the hope, for both Stafford and the Lions, was that he would eventually lead them to a Super Bowl win.
Unfortunately, that did not happen and now Stafford has been traded to the Los Angeles Rams for a fresh start.
Stafford recently spoke to Peter King and said that he regrets not winning a Super Bowl with the Lions but that he is looking towards the future.
“Definitely. I sit there and go, ‘Man, I wish I could’ve gotten it done.’ I mean, it would’ve been amazing to have a Super Bowl parade down Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Didn’t happen. Tough pill to swallow as a competitor and somebody who touches the ball on every single offensive play. You definitely look back and wish you’d done a few things different here or there in some games, that maybe change the outcomes of seasons, but I’m focused completely forward now.”
Matthew, we wish you would have gotten it done too but it takes a good team to win a Super Bowl and you never had the pieces around you to make that happen.
