Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is one of the most recognizable stars in the NFL despite playing for a team that isn't featured in primetime very often. He is a former No. 1 overall pick and someone who shined while playing for the University of Georgia. Interestingly enough, Stafford also bears a striking resemblance to a popular singer-songwriter, Jason Isbell.
A collage surfaced on Twitter recently that showed Stafford and Isbell. The person asked if the two men have ever been seen in the same room together. Isbell responded and confirmed that they had both been at the 40 Watt Club in 2006, but some Twitter users didn't quite buy it. They continued to proclaim that Stafford and Isbell are actually the same person. He apparently just plays quarterback for the Lions and then moonlights as a performer.
I think I met you at David Barbe’s studio in 2006-07 sometime and not realized who I’d met until much, much later— dave kuhn (@differentdaves) December 20, 2020

You have the same number playoff wins as he does...the way I tell you apart is you’re the one that has a kind and talented wife.— Joshua Magnuson (@j_magnuson) December 20, 2020
Pretty sure Isbell’s wife (the great Amanda Shires) doesn’t go out and complain about the shutdown because the pandemic is out of control.— ☃️❄️306/46❄️☃️ (@Infin8DN) December 20, 2020

@JasonIsbell would you play a set with a bruised rib, broke back or other non hand/finger injury like Mathew ‘Tough as Nails’ Stafford?— Punkin Escobar Quarentino (@brob78) December 20, 2020

Damnit I've been thinking this for literally years and never Tweeted it because I showed my wife and she was like "nah I don't see it"— AJ Smith (@AJ_Smith_Writes) December 21, 2020
