49ers’ Jimmie Ward: Matt Stafford is the same QB who was in Detroit and didn’t make the playoffs

  49ers’ Jimmie Ward: Matt Stafford is the same QB who was in Detroit and didn’t make the playoffs The Rams have been a trendy Super Bowl pick since trading for quarterback Matthew Stafford, but 49ers safety Jimmie Ward will believe it when he sees it. Ward questioned whether Stafford is really an upgrade over Jared Goff, given the two quarterbacks’ playoff records. “I like Stafford, but they still will have the same players [more]Ward questioned whether Stafford is really an upgrade over Jared Goff, given the two quarterbacks’ playoff records.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford is in his first training camp with the Los Angeles Rams after joining them via a trade earlier this offseason. But the impact he’s already having on the team appears to be huge.

Speaking to the media on Saturday, Rams linebacker Leonard Floyd said that Stafford has been making things tougher for the defense. As a result, Floyd feels that Stafford is making the unit better overall.

“I noticed it,” Floyd said, via ProFootballTalk. “I think it’s Matthew. He [is] a veteran quarterback, so he [is] making it [a] little tougher at practice and that ain’t doing nothing but making us better on defense.”

  Notre Dame 99-to-0: No. 55 Kahanu Kia, freshman linebacker, Hawaiian, LDS member Notre Dame has developed a rich tradition of Hawaiian defenders, and Kahanu Kia may someday join it, but that day could be a long ways in the future yet.No. 55? NOW? Projecting the incoming freshmen’s uniform numbers is always nothing but pure conjecture, but there is also always some logic in those attempts. Kia wore No. 8 in high school; Notre Dame does not have a No. 8 on its roster. There was seemingly the possibility of a fit.

As for Stafford’s throwing, Floyd said that the Rams QB has been “dropping dimes”. Floyd pointed out that he knows from his previous years with the Chicago Bears just how good he is and isn’t surprised that he’s this good.

“He’s been dropping dimes, really,” Floyd said. “He was in the same division when I was with Chicago, so I pretty much know. Yeah, he’s really good.”

It’s a good thing the Rams are seeing so much quality football out of Matthew Stafford this early. They paid a small fortune to the Lions to pry him from Detroit.

The Rams gave up a 2021 third-round pick and two first-round picks in 2022 and 2023 along with quarterback Jared Goff to bring him into the fold.

With Stafford as their new quarterback, the Rams must expect to be making a deep playoff run or win a title this year.

Fortunately for them, the early results look very promising.

Can Matthew Stafford lead the Rams to the Super Bowl this year?
