On Sunday, Matthew Stafford and crew were in a tight one heading into the fourth quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals. Stafford, once again did what he has done many times in Detroit  and that’s drive the ball down the field for a game winning touchdown that put the Los Angeles Rams up 23-20 on the Cincinnati Bengals.  Long time Detroit Lions fans like Robert Quick were in static that Matthew Stafford finally got the recognition he deserved. Quick stated, “Matthew Stafford was always a great quarterback, It just goes to show you that you have to put a team around a great quarterback.” Even though he was constantly questioned, Stafford was always a great quarterback in Detroit.

Jim Costa, host at 97.1 The Ticket, said that, “For years, he was scapegoated as the problem in Detroit,” Costa said. “You can’t win with him, and in the very first season, he leaves, and 12 months later, he’s a Super Bowl champ. The way he does it with touchdown drives to win three straight playoff games. He was not just an accessory but a driving force.” Costa believes that Stafford is a future hall of fame quarterback and that his Super Bowl victory and overall playoff performance this year vindicated his reputation. Detroit, we want to hear form you. Are you a believer in Matthew Stafford now? Does his win in the Super Bowl make you a fan now or a least did he gain your respect as a football fan?
