Clay Matthews is a laughable human being. He's become less of a football player and more of a marketing tool for State Farm. Clay Matthews wears diapers. It's a proven fact. He also is a one trick pony that only knows how to rush the quarterback, and can only do it successfully after he's abused many, MANY performance enhancing drugs to the point that ... Let me check ... Yup, that's illegal to do in professional football. Oh, and he was also the "anchor" on the 32nd ranked defense in yards allowed last season. "But points matter more than yards!" SHUT UP YOU HIPPY. The Packers defense sucked, and they got beat by the New York Giants in the divisional round of the 2011 (2012? Damn season split over a calendar year) playoffs, 37-20 and no one thought anything more about it. The Giants were better, clearly. They ended up winning the Super Bowl too. They were a Super Bowl winning team. It's ..... Not complicated.

Except it is complicated for long haired dingleberries like Clay Matthews, who had this to say in a recent interview posted on Pro Football Talk:

“We picked the most inopportune time to play our worst ball,” linebacker Clay Matthews tells Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports.  “The fact is, [the Giants] didn’t beat us; we beat ourselves.  We need to play our best ball when it counts.  This year, I expect us to be right back where we should be.”
Oh, well, thanks for clearing that one up, Soccer Mom! Except of course that you're wrong.


Apparently having the eventual Super Bowl winning quarterback crip walk onto your home field and throw 3 touchdowns and 330 yards counts as beating yourself? "Nah, we let him have those yards, man, and those touchdown passes. We were just resting ourselves for the Conference Championships, you know, thinking long term." That has to be the best explanation, right? Because apparently hearing, "No, you just sucked" isn't going to cut it for Clay Matthews.

I guess there's no credit to the Giants in this case, you know, the guys that won the Super Bowl. It was all because of things the Packers did or didn't do. Charles Woodson and his geriatric legal guardians checked in too:

“Regardless of what happened in the first half, nobody thought we would lose that game,” Charles Woodson said of the first two quarters against the Giants, which saw the Packers trailing, 20-10.  “With what our offense had done that season, I think we had, especially defensively, a false sense of security about what they were gonna do.

“Maybe we should have panicked.  But we didn’t.  We just felt like, ‘Hey, at the end of the day, the offense will put up enough points, we’ll win the game and move on.’  That was probably to our detriment.”
Nice. I bet going into the locker room at half time they were all like, "Hey, 10 points, Green Bro Packers? No probs! Let's throw some bombs, wave our hands at the quarterback, and shake our butts a little bit. That'll scare them and let us win! Now someone put on George Michael!" Assholes. You know what the Packers are? They're that entitled little **** face in your college class that thinks he's a gangster, who drives a nice car, who is super pissed off when he gets a B after attending only 5 classes all semester, ******* about how much homework there is, can't hold his alcohol, and still expects a $100,000 paying job after he obtained a worthless Bachelor Degree because his negligent Dad told him he was "worth it." I hate those people.

And frankly, I hate the Packers. I can't wait for football to get it's **** back together so we can direct our rage towards more appropriate glory holes like these ankle biters.
