In the first 86 seasons of Detroit Lions football, exactly four quarterbacks have won playoff games.Here’s a quick recap:Glenn Presnell led Detroit to a 26-7 win over the New York Giants in the NFL championship game on Dec. 15, 1935, in front of 15,000 fans at the old University of Detroit Stadium. He completed one of two passes in that game for 27 yards. Quarterbacking as we know it today was still in its infancy.Bobby Layne then quarterbacked two Lions playoff victories in 1952, including an NFL title. He won the NFL title again in 1953, lost the championship in 1954.Tobin Rote filled in for the injured Layne in the 1957 playoffs and won a playoff game at San Francisco, and then the NFL title game on Dec. 29, 1957, in front of 55,263 fans at Detroit’s Briggs Stadium.The next Lions passer to start a playoff game was Greg Landry on the day after Christmas in 1970 in an ugly 5-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys at the Cotton Bowl. Backup Bill Munson played some, but both were terribly ineffective.Eric Hipple quarterbacked the Lions to the playoffs, only to lose at Washington in the strange strike year of 1982. A year later, Gary Danielson would throw five interceptions against the 49ers in a Wild Card round loss on the road.Journeyman quarterback Erik Kramer broke the three-game playoff losing streak with an excellent performance in a 38-6 victory over the Cowboys on Jan. 5, 1992, at the Pontiac Silverdome. A week later, Kramer and a listless Lions squad would get blown out 41-10 in the NFC Championship game at Washington.That was the last playoff victory in Lions history. That’s a span of 24 years giant-alien.dk , 8 months, and 1 day.In that time, Kramer, Dave Krieg, Scott Mitchell, Frank Reich, Gus Frerotte and Matthew Stafford would lose playoff games. Bad play, or lack of great play, by the quarterback was a factor in some of those postseason defeats.Stafford put up decent numbers in his two Wild Card round losses, in 2011 at New Orleans and 2014 at Dallas — the latter game a defeat aided by poor officiating.Stafford’s contract Matthew Stafford In his first seven seasons, Stafford has been paid $94 million by the Lions. In that time, Detroit has won 43 of the 91 games he’s started. Certainly, that’s not entirely on Stafford — he now holds nearly every team passing record and has been a touchdown machine. Critics say he lacks the killer instinct or special instinct that separates great passers from the elite Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks.There may be merit to that, but it’s far too early to render final judgment on him. On Sunday, he was brilliant in a mistake-free performance in a 39-35 road victory over the Indianapolis Colts. The game was in serious doubt in the final moments, but Stafford calmly and correctly drove Detroit into range for the winning field goal (and then the Eagles added a safety to the Lions’ total with a forward lateral in the end zone on the ensuing kickoff).On that final drive, Stafford could clearly be seen barking at two receivers who failed to get to the turf or get out of bounds to preserve time as the clock drained seconds away. That’s leadership. He didn’t make a single error of note during the game, and was completely unflustered on the final drive.Stafford out-dueled Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who has three playoff victories on his resume since coming into the league in 2012. After all the pundit and fan chatter about the likelihood of Stafford falling to pieces without Calvin Johnson as a security blanket, the 28-year-old QB showed, for at least one week, the critics were entirely off-base. Stafford made brilliant use of his running backs, tight ends, and wide receivers. In total, he completed 31 of his 39 pass attempts to eight receivers for 340 yards and three scores. He didn’t turn the ball over.Stafford deserves all the superlatives, and this isn’t overreaction after 1/16th of the season.It was Stafford’s improved play under offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter that helped the Lions win six of their final eight games in 2015. If his streak of elite play continues perfect hermes replica , this Lions team will cruise toward a playoff berth. Of course, the rest of the club has to do its part in blocking, tackling, and kicking to ensure they win. Stafford can do a lot, but not all.A couple of weeks ago, Lions President Rod Wood told me that his front office and ownership have been crunching the contract numbers on Stafford, who is due a $17 million base salary this season and another $16.5 million in 2017. After that, he’s a free agent. Locking up Stafford to an extension before 2017 will be one of the easier, if expensive, decisions Wood makes during his tenure with the Lions.Stafford easily will command an enormous new contract, and has the statistical resume to back it up. A playoff victory, or two (or, if we’re on a flight of fancy, a Super Bowl championship) will escalate that payday even more. And it will be worth every penny. The Lions know franchise quarterbacks are a rare commodity, and they haven’t had one since Bobby Layne in the NFL’s Jurassic era. Financially, it’s not a strain: The $13 billion NFL’s gargantuan TV contracts and other fire-hose revenue streams are shared among the 32 teams, so the Ford family won’t be forced to survive on government cheese when it comes time to pay its football team’s best player.
