Yeah this guy is totally right, the Lions should have driven a really hard bargain and had Stafford hold out until preseason game 3 so they could MAYBE save a couple of million dollars over the life of the contract. That would have been the very smartest thing to do. Then they could have a guaranteed bust who never got off on the right foot with the organization like Jamarcus Russell... but HEY they'd only be paying him $39.5 million guaranteed! Oh and by the way they would still have people calling them the laughingstock of the league for not being able to get their #1 pick franchise QB in camp on time.
In short, this article and all like it are ridiculous. Anyone who kicks off an article on Stafford by talking about the economy of Detroit and the car companies is a clueless moron who has no knowledge of the Lions' ownership situation. Get this nonsense out of here.
