In case you missed it, Matthew Stafford was on NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” Thursday night. Unfortunately, this led to me having to sit through possibly the unfunniest monologue in late-night talk show memory.
But anyway, Stafford did well in his appearance. Asked if it’s true Detroit is going to pick him first in next week’s NFL draft, he demurred, “I don’t know. We’ll see. Hopefully. That’d be nice.” As for the prospect of signing for more than $30 million, Stafford said, “That’d be a nice little pay day.”
The segment ended with Stafford playing “football skeet” with Fallon, who threw plates in the air and had Stafford throw footballs at them. He smashed the plate three out of four times.
Maybe come Christmas he can go on a much better talk show and join Dave Letterman and Jay Thomas in throwing footballs at the meatball on top of the “Late Show” tree on CBS.
