Brett Favre Didn’t Like That Clay Matthews Call Either

And the list just keeps on growing. I’ll give you a shorter list. The list of people who thought that roughing the passer call on Clay Matthews wasn’t bullshit.

Here’s that list: NFL head of officials Al Riveron, referee Tony Corrente and most Minnesota Vikings fans. In other words, a group of the stupidest people on the planet.

You can add former Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre to sane list, which is much, much longer.

“I saw a textbook hit. It wasn’t late. I saw nothing that, you know, and Clay’s [Matthews] had a history of those type of plays. This one was textbook and if you’re going to use it as a teaching video, you teach that this is the way we expect you to tackle, and that’s the way I saw it,” Favre said on his SiriusXM NFL radio show. “And that’s neither being a Clay Matthews or Packer fan, or a Minnesota Viking fan or hater, you know, that was a bad call. And to me, why not be able to review that?”

Oh, right. The NFL is going to use this as a teaching tool for all teams of what you can’t do. The NFL can shove it up their ass.

Some of the great rants this week came from places you wouldn’t expect.

Here’s ESPN’s Michael Wilbon, a noted Chicago sports homer.

Even FS1’s Skip Bayless, a noted Dallas Cowboys homer and Packers critic, defended Matthews.

    Honestly had the same thought as Favre. I saw what I thought was a textbook tackle, taught to me as far back as jr high football. Wrapped up midsection, head to the side. I have seen such piss poor tackling in the NFL in the past decade, and this was very disappointing to see called a penalty.

      Be honest, the Packers have been so piss poor at tackling that the ref was surprised and he thought “no way, Mathews has to be cheating” for him to take the QB down suddenly and directly. I mean look at Dix against the Lions last year, that is typical Packer tackling man!
