Packers HC Mike McCarthy said Clay Matthews did what he was coached to do on controversial roughing the passer call

Packers HC Mike McCarthy said Clay Matthews did what he was coached to do on controversial roughing the passer call

If the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers played last Sunday’s game under NFL rules and officials’ discretions from 10 years ago, it probably wouldn’t have ended in a tie. The Packers could’ve won that game to go up 2-0 atop the NFC North standings. Instead, they’re now 1-0-1, largely because of one penalty […] The post Packers HC Mike McCarthy said Clay Matthews did what he was coached to do on controversial roughing the passer call appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers ‘sore,’ but knee is no worse than last week

The Green Bay Packers may have felt cheated from going 2-0 to start the 2018 NFL season following a controversial tie with the Minnesota Vikings. Fortunately, they can take solace in the fact that quarterback Aaron Rodgers appears to be healthy enough to play moving forward. There was plenty of speculation regarding his status after suffering […] The post Packers QB Aaron Rodgers ‘sore,’ but knee is no worse than last week appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Week 12’s Packers-Vikings game could decide who gets a first-round bye

Based on early results around the NFC, there are plenty of reasons to think the North champs should have the 2 seed at worst. A look around the NFC after two weeks of the 2018 NFL season (Monday Night Football notwithstanding) bears out what most analysts and fans thought to be true: that the NFC North is one of the tougher divisions in football, and that the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers are the class of said division. Furthermore, what we’ve seen so far indicates that those two teams look like two of the three best teams in the conference. Our Peter Bukowski broke this down...

Let’s recall why we have the new rule on tackling quarterbacks

From BS, more BS will flow In the wake of Sunday’s 29-29 tie between the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, one of the primary sticking points seems to be the hit that was put on Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins by Packers’ linebacker Clay Matthews. The hit negated what would have been a game-sealing interception by rookie Jaire Alexander and gave the Vikings the opportunity to march down the field to, ultimately, tie the game. People don’t seem to like the call. A bullshit penalty let the Vikings tie the Packers: https://t.co/gRBi5eVhOl...

Packers proved they belong in elite company despite Week 2 tie with Vikings

Green Bay should have beaten the Vikings, but there’s plenty of good to take away from the bizarre 29-29 game at Lambeau. The Green Bay Packers took the Minnesota Vikings’ best punch and stayed upright. Kirk Cousins played his best game as a pro in a big spot. It took an act of God for Adam Thielen to catch what turned out to be the game-tying touchdown, plus an act of ineptitude to set it up. Green Bay withstood the best that the NFC’s best had to offer without playing their own best. There was the wonky officiating (a generous description). A Mason Crosby missed field goal could...

Salary Cap implications for Laquon Treadwell and Daniel Carlson

Salary Cap implications for Laquon Treadwell and Daniel Carlson

A lot of fans would like to see Carlson and Treadwell walk the plank. Is it even financially viable? After the Minnesota Vikings tied the Green Bay Packers 29-29 yesterday, a lot of the post game frustrations were taken out on two players, for the most part: K Daniel Carlson and WR Laquon Treadwell. Carlson missed three field goals, including two in overtime, and the last one was practically a chip shot from 35 yards that would have capped an improbable comeback win. ‘Cut Carlson and Treadwell’, fans are saying this morning. I think they’re misguided and shouldn’t be just...

Aaron Rodgers was in rare form Sunday, and Vikings' pass rush had mixed results

The working theory about Aaron Rodgers — who is now signed with the Green Bay Packers until age 40 and has said he plans to play that long — is that he’ll have to cut back on the number of plays he attempts to make outside the pocket and resort to a heavier diet of quick passes as he ages, much as Tom Brady has done. The 34-year-old Rodgers played that way on Sunday not because of his age, but because of the bulky brace he wore on his sprained left knee. If what the Vikings saw Sunday was a preview of what they’ll get from Rodgers in future years, it represented a stark difference...

The Takeaway: Dubious roughing penalty casts shadow over tie

A questionable roughing-the-passer penalty became even more dubious after referee Tony Corrente’s explanation. A single play rarely determines the outcome of a football game, but one can often come to define it. Such a moment occurred during the final two minutes of regulation during Sunday’s NFC North tilt between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers. On the Vikings’ final drive of regulation, pass rusher Clay Matthews hit Kirk Cousins just as the quarterback released the football. Moments later, the ball fell into the waiting arms for rookie corner Jaire Alexander for the...
