Unfortunately, Stafford will not be leading the Detroit Lions into Super Bowl LVI, but instead, he will be leading the team he was traded to, the Los Angeles Rams.
Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press recently caught up with former Lions RB Joique Bell and he asked him why the Lions did not have success with Stafford.
“It just wasn’t our time,” he said. “It’s his time now. I remember Nate Burleson said something about when Stafford came to Detroit he was the prince of Detroit and he’s about to finish this year up as the king of L.A. That was pretty dope. That was a pretty dope quote that he said that I was like, ‘You know what, that’s very much true.’ And for the most part, you have people around here who they’re straddling the fence. ‘Should we go for him? Should we not? He’s not a Detroit Lion anymore.’
“But I’m not going for Matthew Stafford the football player, I’m going for Matthew Stafford the man. And he deserves it. He put a lot into it and like I said, I’m happy for him.”
Nation are you rooting for Stafford to win the Super Bowl?
