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,''
