I just caught this video that shows how Matt Stafford pretty much brought the Lions to victory over the Browns last Sunday, even with an injury that should have pulled him out of the game. I’m not a huge football guy (although as Malachi gets into it, so do I), but this is great. Stafford is wearing a mic, so you see/hear the game from a totally different perspective. Eye opening, at least for me. His best line comes out moments after his major shoulder injury: “I can throw the ball if you need me to throw the ball”. Awesome. It’s a great lesson at doing the job you’re hired to do, bringing your best to an organization and believing that a win is possible, even when everyone in the world would think otherwise.
