Fake Matt Stafford Rumor

Recommended Posts

So apparently, a Detroit TV reporter named Bernie Smilovitz has been reporting that the Lions are planning to trade Matt Stafford.

FYI: All indications are that it's false.

I see them signing someone like Jameis as insurance. I don’t follow the Lions much but I keep seeing people on other forums mention that Stafford’s health as been an issue these past few seasons.

LOL! Who would want him at his price? 

I'm just happy this isn't us.

Lmfao, when the Detriot Lions have more common sense and decency than the Carolina Panthers. :crying:

That’s interesting that he’s the one reporting it.

I’m a Detroiter, Bernie isn’t a beat writer and I wouldn’t even consider him a “reporter” either, he’s just one of the local channel’s main sorts anchor on the news.

Just a weird person to hear that kind of rumor from

They came out and flat out said the rumor was false. 

That's what you do when you aren't potentially shopping your franchise QB. 

When you are, you say stuff like "We'll see when he's healthy".

If we're actively shopping a franchise quarterback then there shouldn't be any other player on the roster above consideration in moving for assets to acquire the next quarterback. That's the true "it's just business baby" model.

Is that really the franchise you want to be emulating? :thinking:

If someone is willing to give us a king's ransom for anyone on our team, I wouldn't turn it down

SMH, you just can’t get your head wrapped around losing Cam. There’s been threads in here about 5 year plan discussions. CMC and Moore are weapons that 100% fit in a 5 year plan. You’re mixing up it’s just business with hey let’s make stupid decisions. Giving up CMC and Moore (I include him because it’s literally the same argument and he’s not white) is opposite of the they don’t fit the 5 year plan. Cam at $35M a year, hoping he’s healthy may not fit the 5 year plan. Get it?

In a 5 year plan one does not simply wait till the 5th year for improvement. And I agree CMC & Moore are part of that plan. But we have to realize that, in that 5th year, CMC will be in his 7th season and Moore will be in his 6th. Without catastrophic changes such as injuries and CBA changes we will be having this same Cam-type discussion over those two in 4 years.

A fake rumor? In the NFL media? Shocking

Rumor: 

a currently circulating story or report of uncertain or doubtful truth.

an unofficial interesting story or piece of news that might be true or invented, and quickly spreads from person to person:

talk or opinion widely disseminated with no discernible source

 a statement or report current without known authority for its truth
