Clay Matthews...Punk

Recommended Posts

Lost respect for that guy. What kind of a punk move was that? Offer to help Palmer off the turf then pull your hand away.

I've seen it happen before. I'm sure it happens more than what people think. 

 

I'm sure it happens more than we know, I don't recall a high profile player like Matthews doing it though (being caught/recorded doing it).

I thought it was kinda funny myself. Not a big deal. He doesn't have to help palmer up anyway.

 

He doesn't have to help him up, but there's no sense in pretending you're going to help, only to pull your hand away. IMO, it's not something a high profile player like Matthews should do. He, like many NFL players, has many young people aspiring to be like him. He only showed many impressionable young people how to be a jerk.

That entire team has attitude problems. Remember the Panthers game where Peppers threw the ball away from Newton? (Newton, hands the ball to a child in stands after every touchdown) and then Packers players getting into Reservoir Dogs style arguments on the sidelines. 

 

Don't worry though, the Packers aren't winning anything if yesterday was evidence as to what a mediocre overrated team they are.

Beautifully stated 18M. I couldn't have said it any better myself. Bravo! I thought it was very small, petty, & low class on Matthew's part. 

 

Personally, I like it when opposing defensive players help QB's up because it shows a sign of respect to a rival & just because a LB may try to sack a field general on every down once the play is blown dead by a zebra; I'm just a competitor helping a peer up on his feet again. 

 

Most NFL players can separate job duties: sacks, deflected balls, hurried throws, & turnovers from other counterparts who if we saw in civilian clothes on the street we'd say hi to & talk briefly with. I may hate the Cowboys as a team, but if I saw Romo in person, I'd be polite to. It's only when he puts that uniform on that I want him flat on his back honest.

I like this too. I think to myself what a gentleman the defender is when he does that.

Well, if they both go to the Pro Bowl or the "Who Cares Bowl" maybe Carson can fill Matthews lockers with a special "gift"

When I saw that I definitely didn't think was funny, but I don't find that kind of behavior funny on any level of society.

    • The Colts have had their fair share of injuries the past few seasons.   Many of these players were either expected to have good/great years, or contribute much more than they did, because of their season being cut short. If there was a single player on the roster right now, whom has had injuries in the past 3 seasons, that you could put imaginary 'bubble wrap' around to guarantee they don't get injured this season, who would it be?   Mine = Kemoko Turay. There are many players i'd want to have a healthy season, Hilton/Campbell/Hooker/ect. But to me, I truly believe if Turay had not had that season ending injury last year, he could have seriously broken out. I am praying for a healthy season for him, because having him on all the passing downs for the season with the rest of the talent we have on the front 7, I think he could have a massive season. He was leading the NFL last season in QB pressures per snap, before he was hurt. Not to mention that he was held so many times, and it was not called.  I mean blatant holding.  Because he is a real issue for O-linemen.  Just so fast, with great bend, and his hand/arm work is stellar since he's been working with Mathis. A full healthy season, I could easily see him getting 10+ sacks.
    • they cant just go from waiver claim to practice squad on another team, he would have to be on their roster a while before they can do that.
    • It will be interesting to see how Watson does without Hopkins. If they won the division again that would show me a lot. Losing Hopkins is a huge blow.
    • That's fair. Watson is mostly due to age, but I think he's finally good enough to lead them to the playoffs. However, they will decline soon with some contracts running out. I see Luck as 32 in football years because I believe he'd be rusty for a year. Just a guess though. I would take Watson too because I feel he's non injury-prone, and that's good for a long-term answer at QB. I would take Luck back in a heartbeat though as long as we didn't have to pay him anything if he retired again.
