Matt Stafford Refuses To Have Matt Patricia’s Back After Lions Blowout Loss
Matt Stafford is not a happy man, and it came out in so many wordfs after today’s game.
The Detroit Lions QB was asked after the Lions 41-25 loss whether Matt Patricia should remain the team’s head coach. Stafford pointedly refused to give his coach that backing.
“It’s not my decision,” Stafford said, via Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk. “That’s for somebody else. If you want to ask me about the game, you ask me about the game.”
Stafford was drafted by the Lions in 2009, and not much success has come his way in terms of playoff appearances and wins since that time period. He is 32-years-old and has been through a crazy amount of coaching changes.
It’s clear he is not happy with the current one right now.
