Matthew Stafford left the Detroit Lions last season to play for the L.A. Rams, and then he famously won a Super Bowl his first year with the Rams. Of course, any quarterback would love to win more than one Super Bowl. Now, Stafford is looking to win another- and he think he can do it this season with the Rams.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, Stafford. I mean, not many teams are able to pull off back-to-back Super Bowl wins. But, stranger things have happened. Still, my bet is on Tom Brady to pull off a Super Bowl win this season and head into retirement.
When it comes to a repeat victory, Stafford says that he think he’s further ahead this year than last due to being more comfortable with his newer team. In fact, he thinks he can go even “above and beyond” what he did last year with the team, which means he could go all the way again.
“At this point in the year last season, I think to myself what I knew about this team and this offense, and it’s just so small in comparison to what I know and understand now,” Stafford said, via the Rams website’s Stu Jackson. “So that gives me great comfort in the fact that we can go above and beyond what we did last year.” He added that it won’t be easy, but it never is. “Biggest lesson I learned from last season, I think, is it’s never easy,” Stafford said. “People see the end product, they see us hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, but it was a struggle.” Time will tell if Stafford can make magic happen twice. Here at home, I’m hoping Jared Goff and the Lions pull off some wings and have a season more comparable to the way they ended the season last year verses the way they started it.
