Stafford is arguably the most physically gifted passer in the game. He's third in the league in passing yards (4,208) and fourth in touchdowns (28). He ranks first in NFL history in attempts, completions and passing yards per game. He has been a top-10 mainstay on Gregg Rosenthal's Quarterback Index for the entire season.
More telling than all of those statistics is the mega contract signed by Stafford in July, making him one of the highest-paid players in the NFL.
Quite simply, quarterbacks of Stafford's stature are never in danger of getting benched with the playoffs on the line.
Oddly enough, Schwartz offered the courtesy of more than just a guffaw in response to the question.
"I haven't considered making a change," Schwartz said. "Matt's our quarterback and he's going to remain our quarterback and he's going to play well for us. We're one down with two to play. A lot of things can happen over the next two weeks, and Matt is a big part of our ability to be successful."
