    Four former 1st round picks, highest paid O-line in the league. There is usually a reason for good lines.

      Being devil's advocate here ... but OUR Detroit Lions O-line have three former 1st round picks (Backus, Cherilus & Pettigrew) and a 2nd (Railoa) & 3rd rounder (Peterman). Not sure where their pay ranks but those are pretty high draft picks.

        I think it's safe to say that everyone around here now believes me when I tried telling them how much UGA will miss Stafford. Only scoring 10 points agianst a big 12 defense shows how much Stafford carried the team on his back last year.

          I'm a Stafford fan but Knowshon Moreno had a TON to do with that as well.

          Regardless, congratulations Matthew Stafford on being named the starter so early against New Orleans in week 1. Wow, the future is NOW.

            Matt Stafford is getting an early start on the Ironman Streak. Brett Favre is goin down in 16 years!

            Just something to depress everyone here. As long as Stafford turns out, and plays say.. 15/16 years.. How old will you be when Matt Stafford decides to hang it up?

            I will be.................................... 40. How depressing is that? Matt Stafford's career is gonna lead me right into my mid-life crisis.

              I'll be in my late thirties. I could combine the two and blame Stafford for my midlife crisis.

              But in all seriousness. Stafford is gonna play for 25 years. Easily.

                mortreport Bradford's positives: accuracy (big deal), touch, size & strong character. Bottom line: think Stafford would've been first, no matter what.about 3 hours ago from web
                Its seems like The Mort says Stafford is better than Bradford.

                    We will probably see a poor version of Manning's rookie season out of him; lots of bright spots along with lots of mistakes (i see Sanchez having a poorer version of Roethlisberger's rookie campaign).

                    I had my doubts about how he would fare if he started game 1, but if for nothing else, Stafford should begin to develop a chemistry with Megatron deep and Pettigrew over the middle.

                      Troy Aikman was 0-11 as a rookie starter but they started laying the foundation there for a great franchise run. I would be less worried about Matthew Stafford long term and more worried about the team they surround him with.

                        The Lions regardless of draft position must go LT or DE next year. Matt Stafford names starter. It is such a 50/50 decision that could set the franchise back ever worse than it is (if that is possible) or set them up for a decent future.

                            If he played 15 years, I'd be 45. Sad.

                              I'm going to say you have a better chance of finding a good DE in rounds 2 though whatever. Drafting a LT directly or indirectly improves your two best players, Johnson and Stafford.

                                Troy Aikman and Peyton Manning are the only QBs in the last 20 or so years that I can think of that started as early as Stafford on such a bad team and ended up being successful long term.

                                There is a longer list of failures.

                                So yeah...hopefully Mayhew can put together a team like Jones did in Dallas.
