Follett calls Stafford 'a china doll'

Lions LB Zack Follett, while discussing Bears QB Jay Cutler on a Fresno, Calif., radio station today, might have inadvertently given a gift to Lions QB Matthew Stafford’s biggest critics.

Of the former No. 1 pick who’s missed plenty of games the past couple years (six in his rookie season and 13 this year) due to injury, Follett referred to Stafford as a china doll.

Said Follett on ESPN Radio (1430 AM), via the Detroit Free Press: “Stafford, good guy. He’s a china doll right now. Anytime he gets hit, he goes down. But the kid is – hopefully, it’s just patiently waiting for him, because the kid is an awesome talent. He has a tremendous arm. The throws that he makes during practice when no one can touch him, he looks like an All-American quarterback, but put him in a game, and you hit his shoulder. So hopefully, say a couple prayers, keep him healthy next year, and the Lions can do some damage in the NFC.”

Psst, it should be noted that Follett was placed on Injured Reserve with an injured neck and missed the last 10 games of the season. China doll, indeed.

Later, Follett took to his Twitter account to backpedal faster than Maurice Jones-Drew: “Thats my bad on the china doll comment, just referring to his injury.. have no room to talk I was more broken then anyone this yr.”

And this: “Matts a baller I see it everyday on the field, and have no doubt he's going to do work next season!”

If Stafford keeps getting hurt, then that should tell you something.. Draft a damn offensive line that can protect him. Geezus. When your own defensive player is making a comment that your QB can't stay injury free that should tell you where your draft priority should be.
They had a shot at Michael Oher but instead they drafted Brandon Pettigrew. It just doesn't make any sense - a tight end over a left tackle?

Im not a Lions fan but Stafford is a talent and is exciting to watch. I hope this kid can stay healthy and show the league what he can do. Him and Megatron would be a nasty combination along with a healthy Best.
