After Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford’s wife Kelly opened up recently about how she thinks her husband is having trouble bonding with his much younger teammates, many people criticized her. Stafford herself tried to walk back her comments.
Kelly Stafford admitted that it was the worst thing she has ever done regarding her husband and regrets talking about it now.
But Rams head coach Sean McVay said Tuesday he didn’t think much about the comments and in fact thought what Stafford said was in a joking matter toward her husband.
“No, I’m not concerned because I think if you know Kelly, I took that as more of a joke at the old man,” McVay told reporters. “And I’ll be honest, there’s a couple throws that he made during training camp where I wanted to say, ‘Yes sir,’ to him as well. He’s done a great job being able to … I mean, if you watch and if you come out to camp, this guy’s done a phenomenal job of leading, connecting with his teammates.
“I think it’s one of those deals that becomes a fun narrative in a dead period. And I know Kelly well enough to know that she was probably taking a good old rib at the old man as her husband’s getting older playing, but this guy’s done a phenomenal job and I know how much he loves his teammates and how much they love him. That is the least of my concerns.”
One person the public hasn’t heard from so far is Matthew Stafford, who has been mum on his wife’s comments. We will see throughout the season if what Kelly Stafford said is right.
