As the NFL weighs in on the Top 100 players, LA Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is taking a different approach. While he continues to put up great numbers as the LA Rams starting quarterback, his stock is rising rapidly on another front. It seems that the camera loves him, and he is exploiting that guy-next-door image to jump into television advertising.
If you recall, Stafford first appeared in an AT&T commercial, a commercial that touted trading in your old cellphone and upgrading to a modern model. The comedy came from the fact that Stafford appeared to be discussing trading in his long-term career with the Detroit Lions to upgrade with the LA Rams.
Now, the boy wonder is back, this time he is endorsing the latest Official NFL pizza sponsor: Little Caesar’s. Take a look:
How about the full-length version?
There is a lot of tension in the air right now. The Rams roster must shrink to 53 players within the next 24 hours. Once that is accomplished, the team will be able to re-sign 16 of the 27 waived players a day later. Often, the LA Rams look to those waived players to staff the practice squad, but that is not always the case.
Take a moment to laugh a little bit. Life is too important to be taken seriously, and Stafford is a natural comic. His serious look in comedic situations is tough to view without cracking a smile.
There will be plenty of NFL News coming at you over the next three days. Not only will you want to remain up to date over the latest LA Rams roster cuts, but you will certainly want to monitor who the LA Rams re-sign to the practice squad. Until then, kick back and chuckle a bit. You can even grab a slice of pizza. Or should I say . . . Pizza! Pizza!
