Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Mathews made an appearance on NBC Sports Talk and talked about how much their loss to the New York Giants in divisional round of the playoffs hurt.
“I didn’t catch the Super Bowl at all, simply because I was on a plane at that time,” Matthews said. “I don’t know if you ever really get over it. I still remember losses from my childhood that you never get over. Fortunately we get to play the Giants again this year and hopefully have a little redemption. But more power to them. They obviously came on at the end of the season. They were a six seed, had to go through everyone’s backyard and win and that’s exactly what they did — similar to what we did two years ago. So we’re just looking forward to getting back out there and hopefully show everyone what we’re capable of and that’s winning another Super Bowl.”
Mathews also talked about the Saints bounty scandal and he claimed that the Packers don’t have any coaches on their staff like Gregg Williams.

Marshall Newhouse started 11 games at left tackle last season, and all things considered, he did an admirable job. While the second-year player from TCU gave up too many pressures and sacks, he generally held his own. And while generally holding your own may not sound all that impressive, for last year’s Packers, it was...
We have all seen it happen during the NFL draft coverage as young players sit and wait for their name to be called.
Players surrounding them are picking up the phones, hugging their parents and putting on hats. Instead of doing the same they continue to sit as their fate lies in the shape of a small note card read by the NFL commissioner.
It even happens to the great ones as Aaron...

Let me preface this by saying that I am in no way a draft expert. In fact, if Jerry Reese deliberately set out to draft all the people I didn't pick/have never heard of, he couldn't have done a more complete job these past few seasons. In the last five years I have picked exactly two draft picks, only one of them number one (Hakeem...
