Ride The Pine:
Official Jeff Triplette had a lot of pent-up energy he needed to burn off in his first game back on a NFL field. Who knew that Packers linebacker Clay Matthews would be the victim?
Late in the 4th quarter of the Green Bay Packers 28-27 win over the New Orleans Saints, Darren Sproles fumbled a kickoff return that caused a heated pile-up for the ball. While the officials were trying to determine who had possession Triplette pushed Matthews away by his helmet than followed that up with a shove to his chest. Triplette even gave some head wagging to Matthews.
I would recommend that Triplette get a Discount Doublecheck on some health insurance.
The ball was eventually ruled down by contact (which was a terrible call).

“It’s like a wounded dog coming in here. They’re 0-3, but when you tell anybody that you’re playing the Saints, they don’t assume that they have that record. … They have no sympathy for us and we don’t for them.” - Clay Matthews

Just when the Green Bay Packers thought they had escaped the horrendous officiating that cost them the win against the Seattle Seahawks, it reappeared Sunday at home vs. the New Orleans Saints. This time they got the win, in large part thanks to an offense that had really been struggling in their first 3 games. Their offense has been so bad in fact that Sunday marked the first time...

The Headline: Packers hang on in another Lambeau shootout
