If you were disappointed with Jimmy Garoppolo’s performance in game one against the Viking’s elite defense Cheap Marquise Goodwin Jersey , well, Lions fans were disgusted with Matt Stafford’s effort against the somewhat-less-impressive New York Jets. At Pride of Detroit, Jeremy Reisman wrote that:Stafford had four interceptions, and it was far from the first time that has happened. Since he entered the league in 2009, he leads all quarterbacks with five games of four interception each. And he had Calvin Johnson to throw to for most of that time.This brings up a long-running debate: does Stafford fold under pressure? It matters because he can expect to face a lot of pressure Sunday, against a 49ers pass rush finding its stride and facing a Lions offense with no discernible running game and a shaky offensive line. Lions starting right guard T.J. Lang is confirmed out, injured, so the newly effective front line of DeForest Buckner, Arik Armstead and Solomon Thomas will be facing the likes of rookie center Frank Ragnow and marginal veteran guard Kenny Wiggins, who wasn’t even good in the preseason.Stafford has faced accusations of folding under pressure since 2012, when Chicago Bears safety Major Wright said:In 2015, he was benched in the second half against Arizona after throwing his third interception of the night, and Neil Greenberg of the Washington Post wrote that:Later that year Cheap Richard Sherman Jersey , the Lions brought in offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, who put in a quick- (and short-) passing offense that limited Stafford turnovers as well as his big plays. Not a mark of great confidence.Of course there are some hometown voices who are more positive. Last year, Ty Schalter of LionsWire emphasized the fact that that in 2017, “Pro Football Focus charted him No. 3 in yards thrown under pressure.” This is true, but notice that Schalter’s not quoting passer rating under pressure, just total yards.What this statistic is really telling you is that Stafford was under pressure all the time last year, because their offensive line was terrible.A more nuanced take comes directly from PFF, in their Lions preview this year.While they were optimistic about Detroit’s off-season investment in the OL — which hasn’t paid off so far due to injury and the talented Ragnow’s lack of experience — they broke down Stafford’s numbers this way.Their basic point is that, at this point in his career, Stafford isn’t bad under pressure. What he is, is great when he’s NOT under pressure, and mediocre when he’s sweating. I’ve bolded the key parts of this paragraph:There aren’t many quarterbacks who don’t decline when under pressure. Jimmy G might be one of them, but Matt Stafford is definitely not. As long as Robert Saleh and new pass rush coach Chris Kiffin can continue their success in game one , the Niners defense should give Stafford a lot of problems on Sunday.Matt Breida nominated for Fedex Ground Player of the Week OK. first, let me put this here, because this never gets old: Now, because of that play, Matt Breida is nominated for the Fedex Ground Player of the Week. Breida currently leads the league in rushing yards with 184 yards. A good portion of that came from the (awesome) 66-yard play above that we are going to drop in any post where it is relevant, which rounds out to 80 percent of the posts here at Niners Nation (fun fact: watch Mike McGlinchey’s dance once Breida strolls into the endzone). The rest has been because of his shifty and quick movements. He’s nominated which means you can still go vote for him. Given his competition, Breida has a chance at winning. You’ve got Tevin Coleman, but his run resulted in a fumble and no touchdown. Phillip Lindsay’s run was pretty cool, but again, no touchdown. Only one player in these nominees toted the rock 66 yards for the score. That’s Matt “The Cheetah” Breida.Go vote for him here.
