Originally posted by Aguirre86:Yeah and Alex Smith could only win when he had an unbelievable defense and he didn't start connecting with Vernon Davis until the final games of the season. Even in years where we had a great running game and solid O-line Smith was barely able to throw over 3,000 yards. Don't you think Vernon Davis should have been putting better numbers? I like Alex but Stafford had the better year and his numbers may have been inflated cause they had no defense and no running but his performance pushed the Lions into the Playoffs; just because he has a great WR doesn't mean he'll produce, Brandon Lloyd never produced here like he did in Denver.
It's one to be a Homer it's another to be absolutely blind by hate or distaste for another team and player.
I'm not trying to say Alex is better of Stafford doesn't deserve the reward at all
But the dude was getting booed by his own fans, he was injured multiple times, he was benched for Troy Smith, thrown under the bus, labeled a bust and then he's the QB of a 13-3 team, 91 passer rating, least INTs in the NFL, put the team on his back in the post season and drives twice down the field for one of the greatest endings in NFL history
That is why I think he deserves the award.
