The Detroit Lions will need a lot of help to fix their franchise after winning only one playoff game in more than a half-century and becoming the NFL's first 0-16 team two years ago.
Matthew Stafford seems to give them a chance and he's not worried about the pressure that comes with being the source of hope.
"I put more pressure on myself than anyone," Stafford said Monday in an interview with The Associated Press. "If I miss a ball by a little, it's unacceptable to me."
Stafford was a little high and slightly low on consecutive passes during the morning practice, leading to him flailing his arms and muttering to himself.
"I want to be as perfect as I can," he said.
As a leader, he just might be.
