Detroit Lions’ quarterback Matt Stafford is obviously one of the most talented passers in the NFL.
Although he had a big year in 2012 and led the Lions to the postseason, there are still things Stafford must improve upon before he becomes what new Lions’ head coach wants to become – a “championship quarterback.”
Jim Caldwell says the thing he wants out of Matt Stafford is “for him to be a championship quarterback. All those other labels…we want wins”

Caldwell believes one way Stafford can take another step forward is by improving his accuracy and believes Stafford has the work ethic to do just that.
“He’s hard-working, he has great desire to excel and he has talent,” Caldwell told Chris McCosky of The Detroit News. “Not only that, he’s been able to prove it; he can put the ball in the end zone and put points on the board and he can accumulate yardage. The key is to get to the point where with all these things we are winning games.”
Last season, Stafford completed 371 of 634 passes for 4,650 yards with 29 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.
