Clay Matthews, Aaron Rodgers leads Packers to laugher over Bills

To quote Dennis Green, the Buffalo Bills are who we thought they were.

Predicted by many to wind up with the first overall draft pick next April, the Bills did a lot to confirm those feelings on Sunday in a 34-7 loss at Lambeau Field. Trent Edwards was sacked four times, picked off twice and led an offensive attack that mustered only 186 total yards. 

The jury is still out on the Packers, a popular pick to win the NFC, but they did what they were supposed to do against an overmatched opponent on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers threw for 225 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another one in a performance that was a big improvement over his opener against the Eagles. He showed a particular affinity for Jermichael Finley, who flashed his athleticism by gaining 103 yards on four catches.

The only problem offensively for the Packers was the lack of a consistent running game with Ryan Grant out of the lineup. Marshawn Lynch did the bulk of the work for the Bills, gaining 64 yards on 17 carries, and that might mean an increase of trade chatter linking him to the Packers over the next few days.

There were no problems for the Packers defensively. Clay Matthews picked up three sacks for the second straight week and is definitely your incredibly premature clubhouse leader for Defensive Player of the Year honors. He now has 16 sacks in 18 career games, which makes for a mighty fine start to an NFL career.

    Rodgers threw for 255 yards.
    Go Pack go.

    Matthews for Defensive Player odf the year thus far for sure. Can’t wait for him to get his hands on Brent if he makes it that long. How is that overpaid trailer trash Allen guy doing anyway?

  4. Walleyeman says: Sep 19, 2010 4:17 PM

    WOW!! Arron Rodgers and the Pack sure look good, how about Favre and those Vikings!!!!!!

  5. PossibleCabbage says: Sep 19, 2010 4:20 PM

    More telling than the 16 sacks in 18 career games for Matthews is that he has 15 sacks in 14 career starts. He didn’t start the first four games his rookie year, due to a lingering hamstring problem.

  6. Emoney says: Sep 19, 2010 4:21 PM

    Looks like its the bears who will compete with us this year. Not the old man.

  7. Fire Ted says: Sep 19, 2010 4:22 PM

    Not ready to celebrate…they played the Bills. Last week was more meaningful. Rodgers a little shaky early, and they still need a running back. Don’t get me wrong, a win is a win…next week makes me very nervous. Nonetheless, 2-0 is much better than 0-2…hey Pervy, at least your team is not “alone” in last place…they dwell in the cellar with the Lions, who also happen to suck.

  8. Old_Style says: Sep 19, 2010 4:30 PM

    Matthews has had 15 sacks in 14 games…didn’t start until week 4 last season

  9. SomeGuyInIowa says: Sep 19, 2010 4:31 PM

    so they didn’t literally laugh at them?

    Aaron “The Rainbow Warrior” Rodgers needs to quit getting coddled by the refs.I mean,gay is no excuse….

    Boy is it ever quiet in here today. Minnesota’s finest must still be busy trying to count the number of turnovers by Britny today.
    How about that Clay Mathews!

    Should be a pretty quiet week on the Viking troll front as we prepare for our biggest rivals, the Bears. But the Favrettes shouldn’t be too shattered. After all, Miami beat Buffalo by 5.

  14. Fire Ted says: Sep 19, 2010 4:40 PM

    Pervy the only thing Favre will do to outpace Rodgers, who you insist is gay (wishful thinking…as if you had a chance, I think Jared Allen is more your style) is in the INT to TD ratio….what is that, FOUR ints in TWO games? He’s on pace for his 1993 numbers.

  15. Reddog says: Sep 19, 2010 4:42 PM

    I am unfortunately an Ills fan and I was laughing at them! It looks like my 3-13 prediction was overly optimistic! Chan Gailey is awful and Buddy Nix is worse! Can’t wait for Ralph’s estate to sell the team, but hopefully he will hold out until 1/1/11 and not get the estate tax break! His kids should have done what the Steinbrenner kids did and removed the old man from the day to day operations 10 years ago!

  16. Blutodunnit2 says: Sep 19, 2010 4:44 PM

    Your just pissed because Favre has a dead arm and when he does miraculously get the ball to a receiver, they just drop it anyway. Worst receiving corps in the league hands down.

    Well — today was just another lockstep in the relentless march, as so many Vikings trolls around here so confidently and loudly guaranteed, over and over again, to the Superbowl, and the Packers’ inevitable and foreseeable crash to the bottom.
    Today’s results prove conclusively that Ted Thompson is gay, the worst GM in the league, and that it was a horrible mistake for the Packers to get rid of the $16 million interception machine grandpa, right guys?
    That is what we have been hearing around here, right?
    Obviously you are all geniuses.

  26. PackerBacker1980 says: Sep 19, 2010 5:50 PM

    Pervy… Favre was a big factor in the SB win but don’t discredit Reggie White and Desmond Howard you douche. take a loss like a man you spoiled little bitch.

  27. GBfanForever says: Sep 19, 2010 5:54 PM

    “Who got you your only MODERN DAY CHAMPIONSHIP ASSHOLES???”
    The same guy that had four turnovers today? Oh but Rodgers throws for over 200yds and a couple scores and “the jury is still out”? WTF? Don’t forget the bills only lost to the dolphins by 5 last week.
    Oh yeah, can we please get Lynch now?

  28. VikingsWorldOrder says: Sep 19, 2010 5:58 PM

    Clay looked like a beast again today. Congrats to the Packers. Just remember, fortunes can change in the blink of an eye. You might need a running game against a real NFL team, the Bills dont count. Rodgers looked sharp carving up that division I defense the Bills put out there.

    Why are the Queen fans on this Packer thread? There’s a Viking thread where you whiners can go and offer excuses for that performance.
    Maybe the LA Vikings will be better than this year’s team.

  31. Sacram3ntal says: Sep 19, 2010 6:35 PM

    Hey- Clay Matthews missed the first 3 games of the year last year.
    He has 16 sacks in 15 games so far.
    Just sayin’.

  32. zangy says: Sep 19, 2010 7:25 PM

    Pervy is oddly reminiscent of General Custer right now. Has no idea that he is horrible outmatched right now.
    RC and all the other trolls have their tails tucked between their legs, I suggest he follow their lead.
    As far as the game goes…a few observations.
    1)Why is it our secondary still gets confused by 4 receiver sets? The same route combos that the AZ used last year are still confusing the defenders, and it was Woodson and Williams at that. C’mon Capers, have to get that resolved.
    2)I was willing to give the reins to Brandon Jackson and Kuhn, and they did a serviceable job but I really think Thompson needs to part ways with a draft pick and player to try and get Lynch. Jackson is not explosive at all, he is good for 3yds and a cloud of dust. Clifton was benched today, maybe they would be able to get Lynch for Clifton and a 4th? I would hate to see Clifton go but I’m not attached to players, I’m attached to Packer success.
    3) Rookie defensive backs are playing better, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. As far as safeties are concerned, somebody needs to coach them up on how to break down and make a tackle. Both Collins and Burnett were nearly laughable at points today trying to make tackles. That is going to be a huge issue when we play Minnesota.
    Thoughts?

  33. PrinceCheeseJisz says: Sep 19, 2010 7:36 PM

    How dissapointing, at first I thought the title said “Clay Matthews in Aaron Rodgers a Packers laugher”.

  34. Bordner says: Sep 19, 2010 8:25 PM

    I think we need to trade for Lynch now. He may have issues, but if he straightens out, he will be the RB of the future.

  35. badfish69 says: Sep 19, 2010 8:33 PM

    Zangy,
    Clifton is not healthy. He would have absolutely no value IMO. With how well Bulaga played today I would be surprised if Clifton even started next week. Be nice to see how the kid holds up against Peppers. If he does well against him, Clifton may become the 2nd stringer. Just my observation.

  36. Calistin says: Sep 19, 2010 9:08 PM

    Aaron Rodgers=MVP
    Clay Matthews= DPOY
    Last week before running out on the field, Matthews told Cullen Jenkins he was going to get 3 sacks against the Eagles. He did it. Then again this week. Most impressive.
    He looks like Conan out there.

    badfish,
    He may not be completely healthy but I think he may be a better option for a team like Buffalo. Pretty much wishful thinking. On the flip-side, trading Clifton would pretty much eradicate the depth we have on the oline, especially with TJ Lang not being active.
    What did you think of the running game today? Total team rushing was 27 att. for 91yds, 3.3 avg. That will not get the job done in the long run, no pun intended.

    There are no rewards of being a Bills fan. I’m 19 and have watched every game the last 10 years. I’m so sick of this. There is nothing worse than clinging to a thread of hope, year in and year out – searching for a player or an answer – while desperately praying for success – for something, anything. A wildcard birth would be golden. Yet, every year is a failure, going back ten years: Bledsoe couldn’t do it; Mgahee could hardly studder a sentence together – furthermore, there were no guarantees he would ever play football again after his knee injury, yet the Bills decided to draft him in the first round anyways; Lossman was a loser who had every chance in the world; The Bills, in the recent past, have had great game changing players like Antwan Winfield, Takeo Spikes, London Fletcher, Nate Clements, Pat Williams, Sam Adams, Ruben Brown, Eric Moulds, etc, etc, etc. But those who did not retire – were not properly paid to stay. I have not even mentioned the plethora of coaches over the last decade.
    Being a Bills fan is one of the worst curses in sports. I hope, with all my heart, that this suffering ends soon. PLEASE.

    I try to tell people that you (and your twelve Seahawk counterparts) actually exist. No one ever believes me, of course, but you only have to look at the sudden lack of activity in these threads to see why that is.
    Obviously it’s only week 2. Obviously the Packers have no running game whatsoever now, and that won’t cut it against teams that aren’t so Buffalo. We face an uphill battle to be sure.
    I’m not crowning anything yet. We haven’t won anything yet. I’ll leave the grandiose predictions to Suck and Bob.
    I was merely making an observation: we’re 2-0, you’re 0-2, and your fellow fans have vanished from the face of the earth, soon to resurface on Pro Hockey Talk. We face a showdown with our arch rival, the Bears, for the lead in the division, and all is right with the world.

    Nope. Afraid I prefer women to fish. Obviously not that you would know anything about that……
    You’re right though, if Rodgers gets hurt, we won’t do anything. No indication he will though. He got sacked 51 times and hit several more last year and was fine. If he can survive that, this year should be cake by comparison.
    You go ahead and pray he does go down so that we can do nothing though. As opposed to your favorite franchise, which is ALREADY doing nothing.
    Go catch some more fish. Hockey season doesn’t start for another month, and since you’re no longer a football fan until next spring, you’ll need something to keep you busy.
