Stafford to Appear on Letterman

By  | 

Detroit Lions top pick Matthew Stafford appeared on Monday night's Late Show with David Letterman, reading the Top Ten list.

The quarterback, who starred for three years at Georgia, was taken with the first pick by the Lions in the NFL draft Saturday. Stafford will try and help the Lions overcome the first 0-16 season in NFL history.

"If the Lions win one game this year, I'm a hero," Stafford joked on the show.

Detroit desperately needed a quarterback to help turn around a team which has had the worst eight-year stretch in the league since World War II.
