NFL Top 100: Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions

“He saw a guy slacking a little, and went for it. Its one of the most amazing things I’ve seen.”

Joseph Fauria of the Detroit Lions spoke about his QB with clear fondness and respect. The NFL Top 100 list has Matthew Stafford as the number 100 player, and Joe was the guy who explained the play against Dallas last season that probably kept Stafford on the list.

While it is still an honor for Stafford to be on the list, it is notable that he has continued to slide down it the last two seasons. Last year, he was ranked at 76, while the year before that, he was ranked at 41. Will he rank on the top 100 again after the 2014 season?

Stafford is in a situation where he is still considered a very talented QB, but should his play decline again, he’ll certainly be on the hot seat in Detroit. If Matthew can become more consistent, with better decision making and discipline in his throwing mechanic, the Lions should be roaring in 2014.
