You’ll Love to Hear What Jim Harbaugh Said About Clay Matthews

Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews sack Colin Kaepernick

Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews sack Colin Kaepernick

Of course you knew this was coming. San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has something to say about everything. So when the topic of Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews came up, Harbaugh was 100 percent Harbaugh.

Specifically, Harbaugh addressed the incident where Matthews got the late hit on quarterback Colin Kaepernick and then got into an altercation with tackle Joe Staley.

“I looked at it with my own eyes, I could see two punches thrown to Joe’s head. Well, one punch and one open slap,” Harbaugh said. “If you’re going to go to the face, come with some knuckles, you know, not an open slap.”

“I think that young man works hard on being a tough guy, he’ll have some repairing to do to his image after the slap,” Harbaugh said.

We think you work hard on being a tough guy, Jim. Of course, you just come off as a whiny dick most of the time.

Scratch that.

All of the time.

Matthews, meanwhile, admitted his hit on Kaepernick was stupid.

“First off, it wasn’t a very smart play,” Matthews said. “I had already committed to hitting the quarterback. I guess I should have figured he was going to step out of bounds, but it was nothing personal. I went up to him later and was joking around with him. Not a very smart play.”

As for Kaepernick himself, it looks like Harbaugh is rubbing off on him. He was asked about the Packers pregame talk about getting physical with the quarterback and had this to say.

“I’m not worried about what people are saying,” the quarterback said, referencing Matthews’ mid-week comments. “If intimidation is your game plan, I hope you have a better one.”

I think we have a rivalry on our hands here.

    typical whiny cry baby. what a pusillanimous. no surprises there. wanna hear a real coach? listen to McCarthy presser from today and what he said when the media folk asked him about Harbaugh’s comments. He’s taking the high road in public, but I’m sure the less travelled one behind the closed doors.

    1 – I havent hated a pussy, whiny faggot coach as much as Harbough since Gary Williams of Maryland (yes im a Duke fan)

    2 – Its not a rivalry when we lose every time you play. The reasons people stopped caring about the Packer/Bear rivalry during Brett’s days was because they never beat us when we had Brett; and thats a division opponent. Noone is gonna call it a rivalry when they kick our ass every time they play us.

    3 – As much as I hate Harbough, dont fucking give any props to MM. That guy is an asshole in his press conferences. MM thinks his shit dont stink and dont smell the pile next to him and tell him any different….

      Up until the playoff loss last year we were 13 out of 15, and that counts that BS Jerry Rice fumble game. We have owned the 49 for 20 years. Yesterday’s game marks a high tide for the niners against us. Bank it.

      • A-Ron

        Just to play devils advocate, you do remember the Niners were a really crap team for the entire 10 years before their last 2 successful seasons. The record you speak of is true, but this Niner team is exponentially better than the team we faced most of those 15; the disparity of talent from the SFs dark days to todays team is drastic. I love the Pack, but underestimating a good team is never a winning formula, especially if said team has beat you 3 consecutive times. It just seems like the Pack, MM (and some fans) are always a little cocky against the Niners, for some reason we think we should always beat them, but lets face it they’re a really good team. Bringing some humility into a playoff rematch wouldn’t be such a bad thing for us.

    • Iltarion

      I heard MM’s presser today and have no idea what your problem is.

      You referring to his comments immediately after the game? Don’t you think he was probably a little pissed off then? How do you think you would have done answering some 150 pound journalism major questioning your decision-making right after that loss?

      MM should have just yelled, “They are who we thought they were!” Slammed the podium and walked out.

    • E. Wolf

      No it’s not. Almost nothing that idiots on the internet call epic is actually epic. The Odyssey is epic. Many Martin Scorsese films are epic. This, far from it.

  3. K.L.

    That douchebag Kaepernick and that little bitch Harbaugh really piss me off. Someone needs to prove to them that they aren’t invincible like they think they are.

  4. buster bluth

    Before this game every joe wanted one thing….to rip
    the head off of CK. Obviously beating SF was secondary.

    • Hank Williams Jr. Sr. III

      We Don’t play Philly until November..let’s focus on avoiding an 0-2 start first and beating the Redskins Sunday.

  5. Nacho Libre

    Mr. Wolf, you are fuckin old school and tell it how it is. I remember that game when Rice fumbled that ball, I was 16 years old, John Madden and the late Pat Summerall were broadcasting that game, “Oh that’s a fumble” Madden’s exact words.

  6. Hank Williams Jr. Sr. III

    Not a lot to disagree with – they handled us. Watching the game, it actually didn’t feel that close. So, those scruffy looking nerf herders can say what ever they want as we talked shit and got it thrown back at us. We had our chance to shut them up and we gave up 494 yards offense. 9-7, here we come.

  7. GBslacker

    Seriously, I don’t care about KP.

    It was a cheapshot by CMiii — but, hey! nice change of pace for McCarthy’s Pussies.

    What chaps my ass is that after overcoming their own ineptitude and gaining the lead — the combination of propeller-head and pubic-hair-head couldn’t figure out what to do to seal the deal.

    • GBslacker

      propeller-head is McCarthy… the kid with the beanie-thingy with the spinner, the one that thinks he’s smart, but just gets his ass handed to him in perpetuity. McCarthy: charts, sharpies, studies, self-scouting, papers, diagrams, etc

      pubic-hair-head is Capers… I don’t know what that shit is on his scalp, but I’d be serious cash that another part of his body was robbed for it, and is bald and scabby as a result.

  8. Richard Cranium

    Philly will be figured out by then, plus Vick and/or McCoy will be out by then. They better come with the same intensity against the Skins and hope to get a safety that at least knows the position back.

  9. Richard

    Ha, the rivalry comment is funny. This is sort of turning into a 2010 Bears-Packers type of rivalry. The only suspense is wondering how SF will get their 500 yards of offense.

  10. Stainers

    I’m positive that there is no other human being on this planet that I would rather give a full out kick to the nuts than Jim Harbaugh.

  11. MadCity Packer Fan

    Clay commited to the hit before fuckface went out…anything that happened after that was the Ferry9ers trying to look tough in the face of someone that is actually tough. Fuck Harbaugh and Fuck Colin Microdick! See you in the playoffs assholes!

  12. E. Wolf

    Hank Williams Jr. Sr. III:

    Wolfina is super clever. Get it? Cause elmo is for kids? Great zinger captain comeback! Man, she should be a writer – very talented.

    Question for you–what sort of moron goes by the handle of some country singer. And what the fuck does Jr. Sr III mean?
    Do humanity and the planet a favor and drink a prodigious quantity of liquid draino and die a horrible painful death as the acidic solution slowly eats away at your throat, mouth and lungs. FUCK OFF AND DIE!

    • Hank Williams Jr. Sr. III

      Reply: It’s making fun of a country singer’s name. I will dumb down my responses, and I guess my name now, so you and your exceedingly high IQ can understand sarcasm.

      So, here goes: “Me think Wolfina have sand in vagina. Wolfina like reach around from Ted Thompson. Wolfina think she big time writer with 5 readers and love McCarthy jizz.” Was that better?

      Wolfina, you can tell the wit of people when they resort to phrases like “F**k off and die”, or anything else you may hear on an elementary school playground, including your EPIC Elmo zinger. I know how you love the word EPIC…

      Glad to see things get under your skin so easy – I bet you are a real treat at your girl scout meetings. Remember, you have to pick up Tight Wad Teddy’s dry cleaning at 2 and then cuddle his balls tonight, like every Tuesday.

    I was watching that new football show on Fox sports1, the one with Glazer and Earlicker. They mentioned Harbaugh’s knuckles comment to Glaze at who’s gym CM3 trains MMA in the offseason. Glaze basically told harballs that Clay is about the last person Jim wants to ask to bring “knuckles” as Clay is a “violent” motherfucker and will “choke you out in two seconds”. The panel also agreed that about the dumbest fucking thing a football player can do is “come with some knuckles”, when the other guy has a FUCKING HELMET ON! Jimmy, a regular rocket surgeon.

    Does anybody think Jimmy would ask Clay to bring the knuckles, if it was just the two of them, in a dark alley? Hell no! Jimmy, keep Clays name out yer mouth, son, or… PREPARE YOUR ANUS!

    Also, with this “come with some knuckles” comment, just who’s trying to sound like the tough guy, khaki boy?

  14. Abe Frohman

    I think it’s idiotic that a coach would attempt to call out a player. If you’re going to do it, do it like Sherman did when that POS Sapp took out Clifton rather than through the media. Players play. Coaches coach. I get he was trying to stand up for his qb. But was it just me, or did he have Kaep sliding, throwing it away, or running OB rather than running because he didn’t want his gravy train derailed? He heard Clay’s threats and adjusted the game plan accordingly. That was actually some good coaching on his part. He’s still a whining douche bag, though.

  15. valpoPackers

    “If intimidation is your game plan, I hope you have a better one.”

    Oh give me a break. Kaepernick was sliding 5 yards in front of Matthews by the end of the game, while Rodgers was running head first to get extra yards. Dan Marino ran more aggressively than this guy at the end of the game. Kaepernick decided to keep the ball ONCE on the read option, and got killed for it. He was afraid to go one-on-one with Matthews so he handed it off for Gore to get stuffed at the line.

    The Packers were a couple of Ross killing drives that started inside the 10 and a Lacy fumble from winning this game. Combine that with no SF turnovers, and of course we lost this time… If I were SF I’d be worried about the defense that got picked apart and tackled like a Pop Warner team instead of a late hit which resulted in 4 free points.

  16. Jurgens

    And still no one has mentioned Boldin’s cheap shot on Bush in the third quarter. (After the play AND helmet to helmet) There is such an insane double standard in the NFL.

    Ha ha the posts in this thread have made my day! Thank you all. You are all Gods special little children (honk honk goes the little bus!).

    Hey! Brady poppinga is still alive! Listening to him stick up for CM3 on the Dibble/VanDyken radio show! The swarmin’ Mormon! Christ, I hate working nights…

  19. FITZCORE1252

    Hey! Poppinga is calling Iowa vs. ISU Saturday! Yay! Dude always struck me as a spaz in lockerroom interviews, this radio spot did nothing to change that impression, he said “at the end of the day” no less than 600 times in five minutes.
