    Yeah, I'd be willing to bet he plays against the Cowboys next week too.

    Back problems always linger, and the older you get, the longer they linger. He may not be ready to play the Cowboys either.

    Nope. Players always seem to make miraculous recoveries before they play the boys. When they play the Cowboys, they get the chance to show just how “great” of a team they are because everyone is watching. It’s almost like a mini Super Bowl for them. Stafford won’t want to miss that game...

    You may be right, but we've had a few players so far who didn't heal up in time to play us, so far this season.

    There is no way Matt Stafford is going to miss playing against the Cowboys if he can help it. He will be at home so it's not like he has to suffer through a plane trip to play us. He's getting a week's rest and will be ready to start against the Cowboys in Detroit.

    He'll play. Everyone gets healthy for Dallas game unless they are seriously injured. Playing for the biggest audience you'll get all year is motivation to overlook aches and pains, our take that extra dose to numb it for three hours

    That would be a huge break for Dallas facing a tough Detroit team on the road.

    It certainly would, but I don't want to get my hopes up about it. I'd rather be pleasantly surprised if he were to be out again next week.

    This "back problems always linger" is a major crock of bs.

    Really? Have you ever had a back issue that resolved itself completely in a week?

    The Lions have wasted his talent.

    He had 69 wins and 79 losses plus 1 tie.

    Belichick would win Super Bowls with a QB like Stafford.

    He has to.

    What else will they talk about other than him being from Dallas and knowing Kershaw

    If he plays against the Cowboys then he might not be 100%. Would the Lions risk him getting injured more if they lose today against the Bears? They might try to play him against us if they still believe that they have a chance at the wild card. But, they would have to win today because of how strong the NFC is right now.

    It would be weird for him to prioritize dallas over a division game. I think he misses next week too
