This probably wasn’t the best offseason for a lockout, at least as far as the Green Bay Packers organization is concerned. Every team coming off a Super Bowl win experiences some sort of hangover. The players are partying, making personal appearances, getting their faces in the media and partaking in all kinds of stupid promotional and […]
After last week’s edition of ESPN’s NFL power rankings, top helmets in the NFL, I half expected this week’s edition to focus on best colors. Of course, they went and pulled something somewhat relevant out — top 10 defensive players. Clay Matthews was the only member of the Green Bay Packers to make the top 10, finishing fifth. Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was the consensus No. 1.
Seven Green Bay Packers made CBSSports.com senior writer Pete Prisco’s top 100 NFL players of 2011 list. The top-ranked Packer should come as no surprise. QB Aaron Rodgers came in at No. 6 overall — behind Texans wideout Andre Johnson, Raiders cornerback Nmandi Asomugha, Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware and (puke) quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton […]
It’s another installment of ESPN’s NFL power rankings. This time — linebackers. The Green Bay Packers’ Clay Matthews came in fourth in the rankings. The San Francisco 49ers’ Patrick Willis was the runaway leader in the voting. Willis was followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ James Harrison and the Dallas Cowboys’ DeMarcus Ware, who were separated […]
The Green Bay Packers have the best draft run over the past five years, according to Matt Maiocco of Comcast Sportsnet. The team still has 57 percent of the players they’ve chosen on their roster (27 out of 47) — only five teams have more. The rankings also consider how many star players, busts and how […]
Muscle Milk is running an ad campaign with Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews and Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun. The spots are somewhat creepy, but in a funny way. The host of the “It’s the You, Your Awesome Body and You Show” in these faux-interviews is way out there and Matthews and Braun look appropriately weirded out.
It’s true. I’m a homer. So, when you’re talking about who the NFL’s best pass rusher is, I’ll say it’s the Green Bay Packers Clay Matthews. Of course, it’s hard to argue with the Dallas Cowboys DeMarcus Ware or the Indianapolis Colts Dwight Freeney, should they be your choice.
Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Brady Poppinga was supposed to help the team in the pass rush department in 2010.
That never really happened.
Poppinga recorded 14 tackles and one sack in the Packers’ first six games before landing on injured reserve and becoming the forgotten man.
A couple Green Bay Packers are getting a little good-natured ribbing in on Twitter.
Linebacker Clay Matthews accused quarterback Aaron Rodgers of going Hollywood, after the Rodgers was spotted with Black Swan star Mila Kunis at a party in Hollywood.
The Green Bay Packers will go into this year’s NFL Draft with a roster that doesn’t have a lot of holes.
The team could use upgrades in two key areas, though. The Packers still don’t have a pass-rush threat at linebacker opposite Clay Matthews and could also use help along the offensive line.
I don’t think anyone can argue that Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is one of the best defensive players in the league.
He’s one of the NFL’s top pass rushers, he can completely disrupt opposing offenses and he has to be game planned for. That being said, he’s not the greatest run-stuffing linebacker, even on his own team.
If you’re like me you probably gave two shits about the Grammy Awards and didn’t watch them.

Matthews joins a list of presenters that includes Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin and Eva Longoria, among others.
In case you missed it, here’s Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Wednesday night.
Yeah, I know smack down is two words, but we’re talking about the WWE version here. That’s right. Professional wrestling. WWE Smackdown. I can’t say I know much about professional wrestling or the WWE these days. I come from a day when professional wrestlers were men — when the Macho Man dropped the elbow from […]
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award by two votes over Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, but Polamalu says he doesn’t deserve the award. After he won the award, Polamalu turned to Twitter with these words. Thanks for the congrats. @jharrison9292 @ClayMatthews52 Ed Reed Julius Peppers way […]
Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews finished second to Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu in the NFL Defensive Player of the Year vote. The award, voted on by the Associated Press, is the NFL’s official award. Early reports from Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Bob Glauber of Newsday and your own Green Bay […]
Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews has been talking about getting a hair deal since Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu started popping up in those Head & Shoulders commercials. He finally got his wish. Matthews’ long blond mane is now the spokeshair for Suave. Ryan Williams of Athletes First, Matthews’ marketing agent, said the deal included media appearances […]
