The Lions made major changes today when they fired their offensive coordinator and offensive line coaches. But quarterback Matthew Stafford isn’t sure what can really be changed in the middle of a season.
“In the middle of a season, I don’t know. I’m answering that as honestly as I can,” Stafford said.
Stafford didn’t sound excited about the change so much as he sounded resigned to it.
“Any time people are let go it’s a surprise. It’s not what you expect. But you understand the situation and you understand how this league functions. That doesn’t make it any easier,” Stafford said.
Fantasy owners are probably hoping for a big turnaround but it may not be the case. The story added Stafford said he doesn’t think they can re-write the playbook seven games into the season.
