PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Detriot Lions signed quarterback Matt Stafford to a contract extension. The deal will pay Stafford as much as $78 million over six years, and a minimum of just over $41 million.
Donovan McNabb does not approve.
“When you look at just the numbers overall, you have to think about 12,000 yards and being the youngest quarterback to reach this feat and also the things he’s been able to accomplish, you know you begin to question this.” McNabb said on the NFL Network, and reported by M Live. “It’s about wins and losses again. Now, as a quarterback and as Matt Stafford, hey, I would take that contract just like Tony Romo took his contract. But is he worth top 5 money? I would have to say no. And I say that because it’s about wins and losses.
And if that wasn’t enough…
“What has he really done for the Detroit Lions? Nothing,” McNabb said.
Stafford had a down year in 2012, throwing for 20 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, after breaking out in 2011, throwing for 41 touchdowns and 16 interceptions and over 5,000 yards.
