Clay Matthews Says Giants Didn’t Beat Packers In Playoffs

Unless I missed something the final score was…

Giants 37

Packers 20

Seems like a clear victory to me, but Clay Matthews says it never happened.

“We picked the most inopportune time to play our worst ball,” linebacker Clay Matthews tells Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports.  “The fact is, [the Giants] didn’t beat us; we beat ourselves.  We need to play our best ball when it counts.  This year, I expect us to be right back where we should be.”

It could be that the defense simply relied too much on the offense last year.

“Regardless of what happened in the first half, nobody thought we would lose that game,” Charles Woodson said of the first two quarters against the Giants, which saw the Packers trailing, 20-10.  “With what our offense had done that season, I think we had, especially defensively, a false sense of security about what they were gonna do.

“Maybe we should have panicked.  But we didn’t.  We just felt like, ‘Hey, at the end of the day, the offense will put up enough points, we’ll win the game and move on.’  That was probably to our detriment.”

Like my girl Jennifer Brix always tells me when she thinks I am BSing her.


Give credit where credit is do, the main reason the Packers played bad was because the Giants were better on that night.

Point, Blank, Period.
