OC Joe Lombardi wants Matthew Stafford to take more chances with the football this season.
The Lions pulled the reins in on Stafford last season, asking him to take a more conservative/game-managing approach as they rode an elite defense. It resulted in a career-low 12 interceptions and an 11-5 record, but the Lions were held under 20 points seven times. "I thought that he played smart football (last year), and sometimes to a fault," Lombardi said. "We'll look to him to maybe take a few more chances this year with the football. He's got the arm to do it and he's got the receivers to throw it to." Apr 2 - 9:00 AM
