What does the final weekend of relaxation look like before an NFL quarterback goes through 16 weeks of guys trying to hurt him? In suburban Detroit it looks like Matthew Stafford sleeping on a couch and his fiancee sitting by the pool with their dogs. In other words, it looks like your life minus the million-dollar lake house, the putting green, the extremely comfortable couch, the nice pillows, the fiancee and the dog photos on the wall.
That’s the life of a quarterback on the road to $200 million in NFL earnings.
Enjoy your Labor Day weekend. Stafford has a game a week from Monday against the Giants to worry about.
