You Could Only Assume Aaron Rodgers Found Matthew Stafford Repulsive #StoryTimeWithDJMoore

By DJ Moore Let me set the stage.  Mathew Stafford and I have a misunderstanding which led to me being ejected from a game.  This situation was a fascinating moment in my career. Most players on opposing teams never addressed me about the case until one night in Green Bay. As usual, I got to the field early to warm up before the game.  I walked out of the tunnel to enter the historic Lambeau Field.  I frequently was greeted by players on the opposing team who I knew from playing in college together or against each other.  That day a voice called to me saying, “D what up?”  I’m …

When It Is Time To Let The NFL Go, The NFL Will Surely Let You Know #StoryTimeWithDJMoore

By DJ Moore I had just been released by the Carolina Panthers and had no team to play for. I called my agent about what my next step would be. He told me to sit tight, and he would make some calls.

Viking was the name of the blitz, and it was intended for me to rush opposite the close call. I was excited to be sent on blitzes because this was something I did not often do in games. Mathew Stafford sits back behind his center barking cadence. Down-set, I creep a little closer to the line of scrimmage not to show my blitz is coming. He hikes the ball, and I hit the rush on a dead sprint. I’m running wide open full speed towards the quarterback. Surprisingly, I …

The Stafford Onslaught #StoryTimeWithDJMoore

It was Sunday Night Football, a prime-time game with everyone watching two divisional teams about to battle.  The Monsters of the Midway were in prime form to destroy any offense that stepped on the field in 2011.  Everyone was getting ready in the locker room, and Anthony Adams was up to his usual locker room shenanigans. We were playing the Detroit Lions at Soldier Field. I loved playing against the Lions.  Mathew Stafford tended to be careless with the football.  On this night, he was extra sloppy with the pigskin. I was excited because I knew I would have ample opportunities to impact the game.  In my wildest dreams, I …
