During Sunday’s Raiders-Dolphins game, as a replay sequence that included the above clip was shown to viewers, the CBS broadcast crew had the following conversation:
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Clay Matthews was flagged for a bullshit roughing the passer call.
The NFL’s absolutely terrible and impossible new definition of roughing the passer—which prohibits defensive players from landing on quarterbacks with their body weight—came into play during today’s Vikings-Packers game and directly affected the outcome. In what eventually became a 29-29 tie (don’t ask, it was bad),…
Clay Matthews was pitching in a charity softball game in Wisconsin Saturday when a sharply hit comebacker nailed him directly in his face, in front of the mound:
Clay Matthews was close, and Cam Newton even lauded the Packers linebacker’s consumption of tape. But Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey ran a slant instead of a wheel route and scored the team’s first touchdown of the day.
James Harrison, Clay Matthews, and Julius Peppers, who were named in the Al Jazeera report on doping, will meet with the league after the NFL threatened to suspend them for a lack of cooperation, according to a letter sent by the NFLPA today.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that the three players will submit to…
The NFL is threatening to suspend players named in Al Jazeera’s December report about doping in sports unless they agree to interviews with the league by Aug. 25.
Al-Jazeera America dropped the full The Dark Side: Secrets of the Sports Dopers documentary on YouTube before its scheduled airing this evening, finally allowing us a look at the allegations HGH was shipped to Peyton Manning’s house along with numerous other claims connecting professional athletes with illicit drug…
The photo above was taken during yesterday’s Packers-49ers game, right after Packers linebacker Clay Matthews sacked 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the third quarter. That’s Matthews stealing Kaepernick’s signature bicep-kiss celebration, which is a pretty good way to troll a quarterback after a sack.
Clay Matthews is playing today against the Eagles after breaking his thumb in Week 5. Matthews protected his hand by having it wrapped to essentially become a club, which will require some improvisation while tackling. Philadelphia's players should be worried about getting hit with that thing.
Coach/angry person Jim Harbaugh is still talking about an incident in yesterday's Niners-Packers game where Clay Matthews took some slaps at the head of Joe Staley during a scrum. "Come with some knuckles," Harbaugh said. He would know.
Cincinnati at Houston (NBC), 4:30 p.m.: The Texans may have the superior record but they backed into the playoffs, losing three of their last four, while the Bengals haven't lost a game by more than one point since Week 9. Plus, it'd be more fun if they won, so root for them.
Normally we don't like to post commercials. But there's something so determined about little Wes Welker. Oh, it's for (an undefined, nebulous) charity? Wes Welker will wear the shit out of your adult diapers. And Clay Matthews and DeMarcus Ware give in to peer pressure a little too easily. If that guy's wearing…
Mike D. of central Texas "let 2 picks go through its time limit in a fantasy draft to send this" picture of Clay Matthews photobombing Aaron Rodgers during the Colts/Packers preseason game.
The video was taken by something called "PopCandies TV" and was sent to us by an anonymous tipster who suggests that it's enough evidence to prove that Beadle and Clay Matthews were somewhat super-friendly that enchanted evening, more so than she let on. It shows Beadle, Matthews and others strolling along the LA…
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
Clay Matthews signed a one-year endorsement deal today. It's with Unilever's Suave brand. Matthews' "marketing agent" Ryan Williams said it involves pre- and post-Super Bowl appearances. And a whole lot of groovy questions about Troy Polamalu's mane as well.
