Stephen A. Smith criticizes Kelly Stafford for revealing dating rival QB

Stephen A. Smith has questioned Kelly Stafford after the wife of Rams quarterback Matthew admitted on a recent podcast that she once dated his college backup to make him jealous.

Speaking on the Off the Vine podcast, Kelly revealed that she decided to ‘p*** off’ her future husband – and father of their four children- when he was treating their relationship casually.

And while the incident is far in the past (Stafford finished up his college career in 2008), Smith was incredulous that the passer’s wife would make the episode public.

‘How is it that y’all know that men have egos, and males are ego dominant? But you forget that when it comes to your own man,’ he began on the Stephen A. Smith Show.  

‘If you are Mrs. Stafford, what could possibly make you think that it is okay for you to go home, after revealing to the public, ‘I kicked it with his backup.’

‘What possible, possible advantage could you peel from that with a husband of yours with?’ 

Smith added that he was not ‘casting any aspersions’ on Kelly’s character, as he met her once and considers her to be a ‘nice lady’

Still, he concluded the video by asking, ‘What would make you think that’s okay?’

Stafford and Kelly met at the University of Georgia, where the latter was a cheerleader for the football team.

However, she said that their relationship ‘wasn’t that cute’ initially as she dated his backup to get back at him for not committing to her.

 ‘I hated him, I loved him,’ Kelly revealed of the early days of their relationship. ‘I dated the back-up (quarterback) to p** him off – which worked.’

She added: ‘He was the bad boy, too. Matthew is so sweet – a southern gentleman, all that stuff. And the back up was the complete opposite and it upset him.’

Kelly added that Stafford and the ‘bad boy’ backup lived in the same dorm, and he would notice her car there.

‘So at one point, he waited and followed me out and got in my car. And wouldn’t get out. I was like: ‘This is amazing, it’s working!’

Joe Cox was a back-up quarterback at Georgia while Stafford was the starter, but it is unclear whether he is the player in question

Joe Tereshinski was also a quarterback on the roster alongside Stafford at Georgia

After she told him to get out of her car, Stafford replied: ‘He’s not right for you’. To which Kelly replied: ‘You can’t tell me that!’

During the 2006 season, Stafford was a freshman who played back-up to Joe Tereshinski III before taking the starting spot. Joe Cox also played quarterback for the Bulldogs that year.

Then, in both the 2007 and 2008 seasons, Stafford was Georgia’s starting quarterback, with Cox as his back-up.

It is unclear whether either Cox or Tereshinski are the players mentioned by Stafford in her bombshell podcast appearance.
