When that game happens, it’s going to be a difficult one for me to watch. Why? I’m still not sure I’m ready to see Matthew Stafford wear a different uniform.

I’m happy to see Stafford finally have a shot at real success, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be easy. Prior to his trade to the Rams, he was the face of the Lions for more than a decade.

Then, just like it was nothing, he was shipped out of town to the Rams in exchange for Jared Goff and some draft picks.

Taking the field against him will be like seeing the one friend you haven’t seen in a decade who became miles more successful than you.

You’re grateful for the memories but it still rips your heart out to know how different your fortunes have been.

I might have to be drunk just to get through it. Say a prayer for me on Oct. 24 because I’m going to need it!
