Hate the Packers, but I love Clay Matthews (one of my first draft man-crushes here at Black and Gold)...

Today's penalty was total, absolute BS - and the league is too soft...

Looked like a clean hit and tackle, hard to believe they are picking on the Pack.

I get the "new rule" but this is taking it too far. That shot AJ Klein put on Matty late in the ball game ... I was just waiting for the refs to pull out the flag.

Me thinks the league wants to get away from defenders sacking the QB.

Yeah, I'm with you there - total shocker there turning on one of their core 8 franchises...

It's ridiculous. They were already doing plenty to protect QB's 10 years ago. They're gone way too far.

Re: PFT - Clay Matthews: League is “getting soft”

Again, all this BS started with a drunk owner, Jim Irsay, got on the rules committee because his receivers couldn't get open from Boston Patriots DBs...

A greater portion of it is from a commissioner that has to protect the financial interests of the owners. He is the impatience behind the deodorization of the game.

This
The commissioner gets the blame but the man is doing what he is told by his bosses on the whole and they want the QBs protected

Now we see a top level DE getting huty because of the way he was forced to sack a QB, nobody cares though cause its not a hurt QB
Its a tough sport, do what you can to protect the concussion issue and then let them play. Nothing wrong with either Mathews sack and its cost the Packers wins
