And the guy he's splitting snaps with is averaging nearly 6 yards per run.

Only if those three quarters are actually good. Bradford at his best hasn't shown nearly the kind of ability Stafford has shown when he's at his best.


Bradford also doesn't have CJ either.

Stafford's numbers last year minus Calvin's huge statistics (which is an unrealistic handicap anyway, given CJ's roster spot would be taken up by someone that would be able to get at least a fraction of his production) are still better than anything Bradford has ever done.

Really rough game for Stafford against the Packers in what was the most important game of the year. The wideouts didnt help him out much with some drops and the pass protection wasnt great but Stafford wasnt even close on a lot of his throws. Inconsistent, bad timing, poor mechanics. His only TD was a prayer that somehow made it through the DBs hands. He has to play better if we are going to win, pretty simple.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty easily his worst game of the season.

I think this isn't accurate. St. Louis hasn't surrounded Bradford with anywhere near the talent the Lions have given Stafford. Bradford also hasn't had the luxury of coaching continuity.

With both players at their best Stafford still has far superior weapons. Neither of them are lighting the world on fire but I don't think your giving Bradford much credit.

I thought he played exceptionally well today against a tough Houston defense. Still an errant throw here and there, but he did more than enough to win this game. I'm glad that Watt didn't decapitate him after any of those complete whiffs on Goz.

His completion % was an ant fart over 50%, that isn't too impressive. However he was pretty clutch on third downs so that is something.

Well you can thank Grew on that

Grew was actually holding onto everything until the fourth quarter. Stafford's completion% was around 50% all game long.

I'd like to see what his completion % would have been without the drops and throwaways.

Every QB has drops and throwaways, great ones complete significantly more than 50% of their passes imo.
