Had Matthew Stafford decided not to play on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, not a single person with a brain would have held it against him. That being said, anyone who has followed Stafford since he was drafted by the Detroit Lions in 2009 knew he was doing to do everything in his power to overcome the pain in his ribs to lead his teammates against the Titans.
You can bet Stafford’s teammates and coaches were thrilled when they found out he was going to give it ago but one person who was not ‘pleased’ was Kelly Stafford.
Following Sunday’s loss, a game in which Stafford played well and left it all on the field, Kelly took to Instagram to explain that though she was not thrilled when Matthew told her he was going to play, his toughness is one of the things she loves about him.
“It’s what I love about him,” Kelly posted. “I would be lying if I said I was pleased when he told me he was going to play after what I witnessed in our house the past week. But it is truly something I have admired about him since I met him. His determination to never let his teammates down, to never let the organization down.”
We love it too Kelly!
