    Steve Young has been where Matthew Stafford is going, and he has some advice for the kid: Good luck. "You have to be a really unique person, not player, but person," Young told FanHouse on Friday. "You can be a phenomenal player, but you have to have an iron stomach. It's not going to be easy for him." Before Young earned his spot in the Hall of Fame with the 49ers, he struggled trying to be the savior for the woeful Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now, Stafford, the No. 1 pick in last month's draft, finds himself in that spot with the Detroit Lions. "It's insurmountable in some ways," Young said of the pressure Stafford will face. "Matthew Stafford can not do it alone. He can do it with a lot of help."
