Fox Pregame Show Makes Bold Statements about Detroit Lions

Read more on the bold comments made by the NFL on Fox pregame show

During Sunday's NFL on Fox pregame show, analysts Terry Bradshaw and Jimmy Johnson had some interesting comments regarding Matthew Stafford and Detroit's coaching search.  

Johnson, the former head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, floated the idea that New York Giants offensive coordinator and former Cowboys head man Jason Garrett could be a good fit in Detroit. 

Garrett served as Cowboys head coach from 2011-2019, and has a career record of 85–67. He was 2–3 in the playoffs, but never advanced past the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.

Bradshaw also made an interesting comment regarding Stafford.

Noting the struggles of the Rams with current quarterback Jared Goff, the Hall of Famer opined that Sean McVay should look Stafford's way. 

“There’s a quarterback out there named Matthew Stafford. And if you could, I would make a move to get rid of the one you’ve got and bring in Stafford,” Bradshaw said.

The future of Stafford in Motown is definitely in question now that Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn have been fired.
