Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions are 3-0.

So far this season Stafford has been brilliant, throwing for 977 yards and nine touchdowns against just two interceptions through three games in leading the perennially hapless Lions to their first 3-0 start since 1980.

Stafford still has to prove he can play a full 16-game schedule, but it’s safe to say that he’s entered the realm of elite fantasy quarterbacks, especially when receiver Calvin Johnson is catching balls. Johnson has hauled in six of Stafford’s nine TD passes, and the two are becoming the best QB-receiver duo in the league.

Eli Looks For Identity

September 15, 2011 By: Katchop Category: NFL

Eli Manning and the New York Giants seem adrift.

Eli Manning is looking for a new identity, but unfortunately Captain America is already taken.

We got to figure out what our identity is going to be,” said Manning, who completed 18 of 32 passes for 268 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception while also rushing for a score. “That could change each year. You got to see what we’re doing well, what’s working and what’s not working as well and figure out exactly what’s going to be our style.”Patience is not something the Giants can afford, even this early in the season.

Head coach Tom Coughlin was frustrated by the lack of execution on offense, which was 1 of 10 on third down and could not accumulate possessions in the second half resembling the eight-play, 85-yard drive in the second quarter that gave the Giants a 14-7 lead.

And with each week precious in the NFL, Coughlin wanted his offense to quickly discover that identity Manning said it needs.

There is no doubt he is the most important player to his team as far as affecting the odds,” said Jeff Sherman, the assistant manager at the Las Vegas Hilton’s sports book.

The Hilton moved the Colts’ Super Bowl odds to 25-1 from 15-1 because of Manning’s injury. The Colts are 9-point underdogs against the Houston Texans in their season-opener Sept. 11, a game that started with an even spread at the Hilton.

Since Manning became their quarterback in 1998, the Colts have won 10 or more games 11 of 13 seasons and won the Super Bowl in 2007.

“Peyton Manning is the only player in the NFL that would affect his team’s odds by more than a touchdown,” RJ Bell, founder and chief executive of Las Vegas-based handicapping information website Pregame.com, said in an e-mail.

Haley hasn’t been available to answer questions about Cassel’s status since immediately after the Green Bay game. At that time, he said, “He wanted to go back in. I thought the prudent thing was to be smart there.

“Unfortuntately, he got dinged up a little bit. I’m not overly concerned.”

The Chiefs lost tight end Tony Moeaki for the season because of a left knee injury in the loss to the Packers. Moeaki was also injured in the second quarter.

Normally, starters are removed from a team’s fourth and final preseason game by the end of the first quarter to protect them from injury. As a comparison, the Packers pulled their starters after each team had one possession Friday night.
