Is Matt Stafford Going Insane?

In an interview with SiriusXM NFL posted yesterday, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford spoke about how the teams offense would be after Calvin Johnsons retirement.

“I think we’re going to do it a little bit differently than we have in the past. Obviously we used to feature Calvin and everybody kind of got theirs after that. It’s going to be tougher for defenses in a certain way that they don’t know who we’re going to. There’s no guy to key in on. We’re probably just going to spread the ball around a bunch, and a bunch of guys will get a ton of catches and we’ll be all right.”

Yes you read that right, Matthew Stafford thinks it’s going to be tougher for defenses to stop the Lions offense because he’s going to stop throwing to the same guy on nearly every throw.


So I guess we can add Detroit to the list of 31 other NFL teams that are doing this style of offense.

But actually, does Matthew Stafford REALLY think Calvin Johnson being gone is a good thing? If he does, I fully believe that he’s lost his mind. If a quarterback thinks losing his best receiver, who towers over most defenses, is a good thing then he either needs to be sent to a psych ward or is smoking some crazy stuff. Calvin Johnson had only two seasons in his nine-year career where he didn’t break 1,000 receiving yards. Plus, he’s caught eight or more touchdowns in six of those nine years. Don’t you lie to us about being excited Matt, because someone will lock you up.

But hey Detroit fans, let’s look at the glass half-full; at least no one has to play against someone with Johnson on their fantasy team ever again! No more 30 point games that will be the reason your friend beat you! This could secretly be a blessing in disguise after all.
