I think Matthew Stafford is the closest thing to John Elway from a "physical" standpoint. The arm strength, size, mobility,...Hell the guy even looks like him in the face. What do think, could Stafford be the next Elway?

Nowhere near the mobility for starters.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.. John Elway is not even close to having Stafford's mobility.

I think Stafford has a bit more mobility than you think. Yes, it isn't Elway's caliber, but even so his arm, size, etc does.

Aside from having the greatest QB of all time in Stafford, we also have the All Time greatest DT (Suh), WR (Calvin), RB (Best), S (Delmas), and LB (DeAndre Levy). Oh, and the greatest Coach of all Time, Jim Schwartz. Also the Greatest GM ever in Earth history, Martin Mayhew. And I am the greatest human of ever too.

I guess it shows the importance of having a good O-Line. If you guys got the All-Time greatest O-Lineman, you could actually have a pretty good team.

I'm not gonna get into the comparison here. I'll just say I'm very happy Matt Stafford is not in the Browns division or even conference, because I think he's going to be a nightmare for teams.

And with Aaron Rodgers in there, being a Bears fan or a Vikings fan once their window of opportunity closes has to be frustrating... 4 games a year against these two? Ouch.

cutler had a bad year but cutler doesnt suck, i think he'll bounce back. the future at QB for the vikes looks like its gonna be terrible though unless they make some moves in the draft and get a guy to take over.

lions are on the up and up for sure, i think stafford is gonna be badass...they are taking the saints/cardinal approach to success in that they get the offense to a very high level with WRs and a big time QB and then slowly build a defense. im buying what they are selling in detroit, just not cars

Even if Cutler is a good quarterback, which is still up for debate, he's surrounded by mediocrity from the offensive line to their receivers. Even if they keep him alive, he doesn't have great targets.

He's got enough solid to good targets that it doesn't matter that he doesn't have an elite one if the OL keeps him alive. Knox and Hester's speed around Aromashadsaudaosabsfaa and Bennett or Iglesias is dangerous enough for Cutler to tear teams apart if the OL was good.

I really like Knox. He's not only fast, but runs pretty crisp routes, but the rest...? Meh. They still have Greg Olsen as well.

With all of that speed, the Martz offense could be effective, but I need to see it to believe it at this point and that offense doesn't put a premium on protection, so it's mediocre linemen with little to no help.

Yeah, the OL will be what cripples that offense, especially with martz's deep drops. You're under-rating Aromashadu (spl?), he's looked really good whenever I've seen him and if he can be that player on a daily basis they've got a good enough set of weapons, they could still use a true #1 and make a great set of weapons, but IMO the OL is a much higher priority and bigger concern.
