Detroit Lions star quarterback Matthew Stafford sounds like he has a great relationship with new head coach Matt Patricia.
“Were both competitive people. Hes competitive out on the field. Im competitive. Hes talking to me nonstop. Im talking to him nonstop. Hes out there a bunch as a head coach kind of standing behind me looking at the defense and seeing it kind of as I see it. So, theres constant back and forth,” Stafford recently told the media about Patricia. (SLIDESHOW: These Sexy Women Love Football)
This is music to my ears. The Detroit Lions will live and die with Matthew Stafford. There isnt much of an in-between at all.
His arm will carry them to a Super Bowl. Theres nothing else that gets the job done in the NFL today like an elite quarterback, which Stafford absolutely is.
One of the most important things about your quarterback is his relationship with the head coach. Patricia is a smart man with a winning pedigree bred in New England. Hes the man for the job in Detroit, but he still needs to have a great relationship with the player the franchise rides and dies with.
As a massive Lions fan, I couldnt be happier that Stafford and Patricia sound to be doing great together. Thats what we need to win the whole damn thing.
