Matthew Stafford fans are still buzzing over last Sunday’s big win against the Buccaneers, bringing Stafford and the L.A. Rams one step closer to winning a Super Bowl. I couldn’t tell if people were more excited about Stafford getting closer to the big game or just relieved to not have to watch Tom Brady in another Super Bowl! Hey, I’m a fan of both Brady and Stafford, so it was a fascinating game.

Read on for some great comments from Stafford about his road to the Super Bowl in 2022!

  • What does this road to the Super Bowl mean to him?

    In the interview room after the game, Stafford said, “It means a lot. That’s a lot of hard work, for a lot of years, going into a short amount of time. A lot of hard work this year, too, with some great teammates.”

    He added, “That’s the thing I’ve loved and really appreciated, being a part of this team. How many guys we have willing to row in the right direction, doing everything they can to be prepared for those moments.”

  • He enjoying every minute

    “I’m taking it all in,” he said, “loving every minute of it, working my tail off trying to enjoy every situation that we’re in, every opportunity that we earn. I love going into battle with these guys. ”

    “I love those situations,” Stafford said. “I hate the way we got to it tonight. There’s some plays we all wish we had back. We could have ended that game probably with me taking a knee. But finding a way to win a football game is what it’s all about, and we’ve got a group of guys in that locker room who all believe in each other.”

  • What does he remember about the moment he won?

    “My heart was racin ‘. But at the same time it was just going out there to execute, have fun and enjoy the moment,” he said.

  • A dark place

    “All the guys on the sideline were like, ‘Man, you were in a dark place,’” Stafford said. “I said, ‘Sometimes, you just have to go to those places and make some plays happen.’ I was enjoying the moment. In my mind, I live for those kind of moments.”

  • Rams coach Sean McVay on Stafford

    “I though Matthew Stafford was unbelievable throughout the whole day,” he said of Sunday’s game. “Just his poise, his command, his demeanor, his decision-making.”
