Bottom Line

Simply throwing it around the yard all day isn’t going to work and even Tom Brady has failed in Super Bowls without a running game. The one Super Bowl the Peyton Manning won, he had Joseph Adai running the ball pretty well for him. So it’s not going to work for Stafford either and they should get him help as Gordon is that guy that can help him.

He fast, physical and can function in cold weather so the Lions can get in done no matter what the weather is where they play. No longer will they be able to say, “Once we get the Lions out of that dome, we got ’em because they can’t run. And with the defense the way it is, the Lions would be a team without weakness and hard to keep out of the Super Bowl.
