Is Matthew Stafford worth over $27 million a year?

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is getting paid $27 million per year—one of the richest contracts in the league. Stafford has become one of the most clutch quarterbacks in the NFL and hasn’t missed a game in six years. Some say he's earned that money. However, his play on the field has been inconsistent. Just look at his first game of the 2018 season or that the fact that Stafford has not won a single playoff game in his eight-year career. Did he deserve that amount of coin? 🦁 🏈

If your team is down heading into the fourth quarter, there is no one better than Matthew Stafford. Since 2011, no one has more fourth-quarter comebacks than the Georgia product. When it matters most, you can depend on Stafford to get the job done.

He may not have playoff success, but he is the reason the Lions are in a position to contend for a playoff spot every year. The Lions made the right move rewarding Stafford for his contributions, and building around him for the future.

Did Matthew Stafford lead the Detroit Lions to a Super Bowl victory that NFL fans have somehow overlooked? Has he won a division title as the Lions quarterback? Has he even won a playoff game?

Every answer to the above questions is a definitive "No." Stafford should not be one of the highest paid players in NFL history.

As good as Stafford has been with the game on the line, there is a reason the team is behind when the fourth quarter rolls around. His up-and-down play puts Detroit in bad positions at times. Fortunately, he digs them out, but eventually, it'll come back to bite the team.

Stafford is also really good at beating bad teams, but when he plays teams above .500, he has a sickening 7-52 record. That lack of success should not be rewarded with such a huge contract.
