Week 10’s matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers was one that Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford would probably like to forget. He was terrible all game long as he tossed two interceptions in a 31-10 loss. He finished the game with 26 of 41 passes completed and a passer rating of 67.4.
It turns out that he wasn’t the only member of the Stafford family who had some throws he’d like back.
Kelly Stafford apologized for throwing a pretzel at a fan during an altercation in the stands at Levi Stadium. She took full responsibility for her actions. According to a report by TMZ Sports, Levi’s Stadium security stepped in and escorted Kelly Stafford and people she was with to other seats.
Her husband had quite the response to his wife’s throwing skills.
During Tuesday’s installment of her podcast, “The Morning After with Kelly Stafford,” Kelly addressed the incident while relaying her husband’s response.
“He said, ‘Well, I wish I was as accurate as you were, but I guess only one person in the family was accurate that night,’” Kelly shared.
Kelly added that the 13-year quarterback also said, “Maybe if I wasn’t playing so s—ty the guy wouldn’t be able to say as much to you.”
“To that, I looked at [Stafford] and I was like, ‘This guy would have said anything all night,’” she said, noting that the couple also decided that she’ll press pause on away games for the time being.
The Rams are 7-3 and are coming off of a bye and will take on the Packers this Sunday in Green Bay.
“Listen, football and going to games, it’s fun, and in the end too, both sides need to be held accountable for what they do, and for my family and myself, this isn’t just a fun Sunday or a fun Monday, this is my husband’s livelihood, our family’s livelihood,” she said. “This is also nerve-wracking because anything can happen at any given moment on that field, which terrifies me. My anxiety is always high and so when I’m getting heckled at, or when I’m hearing all these things, yeah, I lose my cool and I did.”
“I’m human, I make mistakes, and I own up to them, I don’t f—king hide from them, that’s not me,” she said. “I’ve always been taught, I wear my heart on my sleeve so I do stuff probably in a hot second, but I also realize in a hot second, not the best, and I go up and I apologize.”
