Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford is done for the season

matthew-stafford-surgery.JPGAs someone who was crammed into Detroit Lions gear a few days after birth, I feel compelled to point out that we have a different standard about what is "magical."

Matthew Stafford leading the way to two wins a season after going winless actually qualifies.

Sad, I know.

Stafford's magical season is officially over now as coach Jim Schwartz announced he'd finish the season on injured reserve and have surgery on his right knee.

The procedure is just to "clean out some of the irritants and debris," according to Schwartz.

The rookie signal-caller started 10 games for the Lions this year, going 201-for-377 for 2,267 yards, 13 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. He's been out since aggravating a seperated left shoulder Dec. 6 against Cincinnatti.
