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.

    • Football as a blood sport?
    • Truth can be disappointing, if you bother to look.   The problem with any organization or movement that grows from infancy, is that missteps occur along the way.  Most would acknowledge these missteps, admit when they were wrong, apologize, then seek to correct the processes so the same wrongness doesn't happen again.   Has BLM ever admitted they did anything wrong...ever? If we don't get the message, I guess that's our shortcoming and not theirs, after 4 years of delivering the message.     A group that is confident that their message is rooted in truth would be able to admit their missteps.  OTOH, it seems like BLM must think their cause is built on a house of cards that would totally collapse if anything wrong was admitted.     From the Wash Post: Of the 10,000,000 arrests that happened in 2019 in the USA, 1,100 involved police shootings.  9 of the victims were unarmed blacks.  While brutality is not the same as an actual shooting, it does seem like police brutality against blacks....white cops not black cops....would be situational anomalies rather than something indicative of a systemic problem that a dopey, untalented, and angry NFL QB would apply to the country as whole by disrespecting its flag and anthem.     
    • High power offenses can't score if they don't have the ball.  The key is our defense not giving up big plays too.  I am so tired of those dump off passes ending up 15-20 yards down the field.
