NFLGARAGE QUARTERBACK MATTHEW STAFFORD
Projected Week 1 starter: Matthew Stafford
Backups: Jake Rudock, Matt Cassel
2018 outlook: Matthew Stafford has been good for
4,200 yards and averaged 28 touchdowns a year over the past seven
seasons. Things are looking just fine.
In case of emergency: Matt Cassel won't outright
win any games for the Lions, but he's good enough to keep them in the
Long term plans: Stafford is entering his 10th
year in the league, but there's no reason to think that the Lions
wouldn't keep him around for ten more.
