About Stafford - Sports Mem, Cards & Fan Shop
As the first overall pick by the Detroit Lions in the 2009 NFL Draft, Matthew Stafford is a major reason why the Lions are slowly morphing into a team to be reckoned with on the NFL landscape. Originally making his name as a national standout at the University of Georgia, it only took him three seasons to become the one of the most legendary quarterbacks in Georgia’s rich history, breaking the record for most touchdowns recorded in a single season in 2008 and becoming the second all-time leader in passing yards, second only to Bulldogs legend Eric Zeier. Drafted by the floundering Detroit franchise that had just become the first team to go an entire regular season without a win, Stafford left everything he had on the field, helping the Lions to reach the playoffs just three seasons after being drafted, while becoming the fastest player in history to reach 16,000 passing yards in the process. Lions fans can cheer their fearless leader on by sporting a Matthew Stafford jersey next season, or they could anticipate the stellar career he is bound to enjoy by purchasing a Matthew Stafford autograph, with both of these types of Stafford memorabilia available on eBay from reliable sellers.
