2009.12.24  FROM THE ELIAS SPORTS BUREAU: FROM BRADSHAW TO STAFFORD&.THE STREAK CONTINUES
FROM BRADSHAW TO STAFFORD&.THE STREAK CONTINUES " Matthew Stafford was placed on the Lions' injured-reserve list on Thursday ending his season. Stafford, the first player chosen in the 2009 draft, had a 2-8 record as a starter for Detroit, preserving a streak that's spanned four decades. Since 1967, the first year of the common draft, no quarterback selected with the first overall pick has had a winning record as a starter during his rookie season. The streak began with Terry Bradshaw, who was taken with the first choice of the 1970 draft.
