Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford needs ‘some work done’

Stafford isn’t focused on football.

Detroit Lions GM Martin Mayhew said Sunday that “there certainly has to be some work done” with inconsistent chucker Matthew Stafford.

Individually, Stafford, who refuses to work with a quarterback guru during the offseason, has thrown 109 touchdowns, against 73 picks, for 17,457 yards since being taken first overall in 2009.

As a unit, Detroit finished 7-9 last month and the former Bulldog’s now failed to lead the organization to the playoffs in every season except 2011.

The 25-year-old Stafford, who agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $53 million in July, must refine his substandard mechanics and become more accurate.

With Reggie Bush and Calvin Johnson as weapons, Stafford’s underachieved and his complacency is infuriating.

Although an immensely gifted and relatively accomplished passer, there are 53 million extra reasons for Stafford to improve on the gridiron.

Unfortunately for Lions fans, despite directing the league’s 11th ranked attack, Stafford will never mature into an elite signal-caller or electrify Motown.

Matthew Stafford is simply uninterested in getting “some work done” or pursuing greatness.
