Most analysts believe the Browns will take a quarterback No. 1 overall, whether it be Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, or Josh Rosen.
Stafford has some advice if any of those quarterbacks head to the second team ever to go 0-16.
All you can do is be yourself, Stafford said, via Kyle Meinke of MLive.com. Just go in there and work hard, show those guys in that locker room what you’re about. Whatever it is you’re about, it will come out. They’ll either accept it or they won’t, and you’ll go play.
Stafford struggled with injuries early in his career but has become the stabilizing factor for a Detroit franchise that has gone from afterthought to above average during his tenure. A Browns club that has been searching for a quarterback this entire millennium would take a Stafford-like career in a heartbeat.
I don’t understand that comment, Jones said. I certainly respect anybody that has a comment about the organization. You certainly always see things when it’s difficult for a player to take the next step. Whether it’s a Larry Allen, Demarcus Ware, an Emmitt Smith, all Hall of Famers who ended up playing with another team. Those things are hard.
You know, when you have decided to move on maybe there’s a thought in your mind (the player) that you weren’t a particular coach’s guy or an organizational guy. But I certainly don’t see that on this football team.
Thank Player X for contribution, wish Player X the best, move on and refute any insinuation there were cliques or turmoil in the locker room. This is pretty standard fare from a team that has recently released one of its star players of the last decade.
The Eagles tied with the Patriots, Los Angeles Rams, Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers for the most prime time appearances with five. All 32 teams will have at least one prime time game.
The Thanksgiving slate will feature three divisional showdowns: the Chicago Bears at the Lions, the Washington Redskins at the Cowboys and the Falcons at the New Orleans Saints.
