Prior to Matthew Stafford’s debut season with the Los Angeles Rams, high expectations were placed on him. Stafford undoubtedly met or perhaps beyond those expectations after a performance that included 41 touchdowns and a Super Bowl victory. Stafford thinks his comfortability puts him further ahead this year than it did last, making his goal of a repeat beckon more attainable.
Stafford added, “I think about what I understood about this club and this offense at this stage last year, and it’s just so minuscule in contrast to what I know and understand today. We can go above and beyond what we did last year, so it gives me a lot of comfort.”
Stafford threw for 4,886 yards and a 67.2 completion %, both of which were career highs, in addition to 41 touchdown passes, matching a career high. When the 12-year starter for the Detroit Lions plays his first season in Los Angeles, a lot is expected of him.
