Matt Hayes continues to mystify me with regard to this perception he has about Matt Stafford.
Here’s his latest insight:
… What in the world makes anyone think this Arizona State team, with a revamped offensive line, can bang heads with Georgia, which has one of the best defensive lines in the nation? Here’s one reason: Ubertalented Dawgs quarterback Matthew Stafford struggles in true road games and still must embrace the concept of incompletions instead of interceptions.
Stafford played in six games away from Athens last year. He threw six interceptions in those six games. As for struggling, his two worst games last season were home games against South Carolina and Kentucky.
Hayes keeps revisiting this notion he has about Stafford’s weaknesses, so it’s not accidental. I just don’t understand where he gets it from, unless he only watched Stafford’s play in his freshman year.
