Matthew Stafford is now the main man in Los Angeles, and after one game, he seems to be the perfect fit for the Rams. Stafford’s wife detailed the emotions of Matthew’s first game with the Los Angeles Rams in the premiere episode of her new podcast, “The Morning After with Kelly Stafford.”

She also spoke about how football wasn’t fun for the former Detroit Lions QB.

“Matthew handles this pressure far better than I do,” Kelly said. “There was obviously very high expectations coming into this game and this season and he crushed it, which was so fun to watch.”

“He looked like he was having so much fun, which I haven’t seen that side of Matthew on a football field in a very long time,” Kelly said.

“I felt like my husband has a renewed love for this sport again.”

Kelly noticed Matthew’s body language was very telling.

“For the first time ever after the game, he looked up at the suite with a big smile with both hands in the air,” Kelly said. “It was just an incredible thing to witness.”

Kelly also revealed the text message she sent to Matthew before the game.

“Know that I understand that this is like a big leap of faith for you, but no one deserves this chance more than you, so go out, but more so go out and have some f—— fun,” she said. “I felt like football hadn’t been fun for him in a very long time.”

Waking up the next morning after the win, Kelly asked Matthew how he was feeling.

“And he turns over and gives me like this little smirk,” she said. “He’s like, ‘I think this is gonna be fun.’

“I hadn’t seen that from Matthew in a very long time.”

Winning cures all.

It’s more about how people react after a tough loss.

We will see, it’s a long season. . .
