The Detroit Lions and their fan base are going through enough with an already tough season without having to hear a former QB take shots at them for no reason at all.
Mark Sanchez and Kevin Kugler were the announcing team for Sunday’s Detroit Lions-Los Angeles Rams, when the former QB tried to clarify a point he made earlier in the telecast about Detroit and Matthew Stafford.
The former NFL quarterback turned broadcaster said during Sunday’s game that Stafford had “finally found” a home where he’s appreciated.
The fans hated everthing about his statement, and let him know about it on Twitter.
Late in the third quarter, Sanchez issued a statement on what he said earlier in the game.
“I didn’t mean about the fans not appreciating him … because I think the fans and the organization in Detroit knew who they had. It’s more from a national media standpoint … we just kind of overlooked them because of their losing seasons and small market,” Sanchez said in his clarification.
Stafford passed for 334 yards and three touchdowns against his former team, and Jalen Ramsey made an end zone interception that stopped a promising drive for the Lions and keep them winless on the season.
Goff passed for 268 yards, but the Lions still dropped to 0-7.
