NFL athletes constantly tell reporters that they don’t pay attention to what the media puts out there. They don’t hear what SportsCenter says about them. They don’t care what Skip Bayless has to say. They don’t read the editorials or look at their Pro Football Focus grade.
While that may be true for some, it’s certainly not true for all. And on Thursday, Kelly Stafford, wife of Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, gave us a look at how some NFL players may react to getting snubbed by the media.
NFL Live ran a segment detailing NFL stars that played high school football in Texas. Stafford notoriously played high school for Highland Park in Dallas, and even won a state championship there. However, he did not appear on the list of players that included the likes of Dez Bryant, Drew Brees, Adrian Peterson, Andy Dalton and Andrew Luck.
Kelly had the camera rolling during the moment and both of their reactions are priceless:

As you can see from the video, not only was Stafford not among the top five listed, but ESPN revealed 10 more players and Stafford was still nowhere to be found.
How do you feel about that, Matthew?
Us, too, buddy.
