Kelly Stafford’s Unexpected Dating Story

Kelly opened up about her early days at Georgia, saying, “I met him before school started because we were both there for two-a-days. I was there for cheerleading. He was there for football. We had a really good time, but he was the QB at an SEC college. He was trying to casually date, and I didn’t know what that was.”

Reflecting on her relationship with Matthew, she continued, “Long story short, it wasn’t that cute of a relationship at first. I hated him. I loved him. I dated the backup to piss him off – which worked. He was the bad boy, too. Matthew was so sweet, and Southern gentleman, and all that stuff. The backup was the complete opposite, and it upset him. It worked, thankfully.”

Speculation Over the Backup Quarterback

Following Kelly’s revelation, speculation quickly arose about the identity of the backup quarterback she mentioned. Many fans and commentators believe she was referring to Joe Cox, who served as one of Matthew Stafford’s backups at Georgia.

Jeff Riger of 97.1 The Ticket proposed a humorous idea for Detroit Lions fans, suggesting they playfully remind Matthew Stafford of his wife’s story during his next game at Ford Field.

Riger mused, “The backup was Joe Cox. There needs to be a Cox-out for Sunday Night Football vs LA. Could you imagine Matthew runs out to a sea of Lions fans wearing shirts with the face of Joe Cox on them? Or how about a Joe Cox tribute video? Guaranteed win for the Lions! lol.”
