Matthew Stafford weighs in on authenticity of Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell

What Did Matthew Stafford Say?

Just before being traded to the Rams, Stafford had a chance to talk to Campbell and he was impressed by his authenticity, a trait he identifies as crucial for successful coaching in the NFL. Stafford also acknowledges Andy Reid for his genuine approach, highlighting that authenticity in coaching, regardless of style, plays a significant role in a team’s performance.

“He’s, from afar, seems like a players coach. Guys love playing for him, he’s aggressive as it gets. You feel like your coach is putting the ball in your hand. I got a chance to talk to him before I left,” Stafford explained. “He just wanted to talk to me a little bit, pick my brain about some of the stuff around there and I spent an hour, maybe an hour and a half talking to him.

I came away, I was like, man, I don’t know what the team will look like or whatever, but he’s an engaging guy to talk to. I think he does a great job with the media and then obviously does a great job in his locker room. Cares a lot.

“I think one of the biggest things that coaches that have success in the league are is authentic. You can be authentic and be Dan Campbell or you can be authentic and be Andy Reid and they’re just polar opposites. But also, it plays in the locker room because you can’t sit there and fake it, there’s too many eyes on you, guys will call you out and it won’t work. And those guys are two of the most authentic guys as it gets and it works for their team.”
