Stafford looks to bounce back after inconsistent season

Posted: Updated:
ALLEN PARK, MI (AP) -

Matthew Stafford became the Detroit Lions' all-time leading passer last season.

But that accomplishment got lost in the closing stretch of a disappointing season.

He finished last season with 17,457 yards passing to surpass Hall of Famer Bobby Layne's team record, but he threw five interceptions during a late three-game skid that dropped the Lions out of playoff contention.

He's still looking to regain his form from his only playoff season, when he ended 2011 with 5,038 yards and 41 touchdown passes with just 16 interceptions. He's thrown more interceptions each season since. The arrival of a new coaching staff could be just the thing.
