Lions | Former coach does not blame Matthew Stafford

Tue, 11 Feb 2014 11:31:37 -0800

Former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz does not blame QB Matthew Stafford for how the team finished the 2013 season. "Yeah, you know, we were 2-6 over the last half of last season, and when you're 2-6 nobody is feeling good about their performance, whether you're the head coach, the quarterback or a defensive lineman," Schwartz said. "But it's a team game and I wouldn't pin it on Matt Stafford. Matt's an outstanding quarterback. He led us to the playoffs. Just about every record in the Lions offense, total offense and passing offense was set by Matt Stafford in the last three years. He's going to lead that team to many great things in the future. Everybody has some rough spots here and there, and it's up to the rest of the team to pick you up,''

Lions | OC does not think Matthew Stafford has INT problem

Fri, 07 Feb 2014 19:38:42 -0800

Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said QB Matthew Stafford needs to improve but also does not believe all of the interceptions Stafford threw are his fault. "There are interceptions that happen because a receiver breaks his route off too early, or goes through a receivers hands. Get's tipped at the line of scrimmage. So, I was a little encouraged after watching that. This was not an interception machine," Lombardi said.

Lions | Matthew Stafford needs improved footwork

Fri, 07 Feb 2014 10:40:04 -0800

Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi thinks QB Matthew Stafford could probably stand to work on improving his footwork this offseason.

We used to sit in the Saints quarterback room and just marvel at his passes -- all the depths, the whole field in play. He really can sling it. That's a great thing to have."

Lions | New coach will work on Matthew Stafford's footwork

Mon, 20 Jan 2014 12:16:08 -0800

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said the team will work on improving QB Matthew Stafford's footwork because he believes Stafford's footwork is why he has been inconsistent. "We have used a set of drills in coaching over the years that I think has added some consistency to all the quarterbacks we've coached. The great majority of poor throws people look at the arm, and that's important obviously, but I think footwork is the key. I can pull up any gamefilm and show you how our footwork drills help you. In a nutshell, the feet and eyes work together. If I'm throwing in a particular direction, my footwork is pointing in the same direction directly at the target. We'll work on it with Matthew, and he will do them flawlessly," Caldwell said.
