Clay Matthews: Packers are 5-0 and getting better

Super Bowl Football AP

If you’re impressed by the Green Bay Packers being undefeated through five games, linebacker Clay Matthews says you ain’t seen nothing yet.

“It’s nice to know that we’re not playing our best ball yet, we’re getting better and at the same time we’re still winning,” Matthews said after the Packers beat the Falcons, “so we’re 5-0, got a chance to go 6-0 and play better ball next week heading in to Week 7 and just continue to develop and progress as a football team. That’s what’s encouraging.”

After falling behind early in Atlanta, the Packers were sensational. The Falcons’ final seven offensive drives consisted of five punts and two interceptions, while the Packers scored on six of their last eight drives before taking a knee to end the game.

The thought of the Packers getting better has to be scary to the rest of the NFL.

    This team has the potential to be the best Packers team ever. Not that it has to be. It will destroy any team that comes to visit in January and the AFC consists of a bunch of patsies.

    FALCONS REMAIN PACKERS’ BITCH

    I’m not a Packers fan, but I do like watching them play, especially this year. For most of the first half, I was wondering, “Where are the Packers? I know these aren’t them.” It was good to see them show up in the second half. And them getting better? I shudder at the thought…

  4. jpspear says: Oct 10, 2011 8:01 AM

    Another article about a dominant team saying they can get better and the awe-struck writer amazed that they could dare think such a thing. They did this during the Patriots “almost undefeated” season and in 2009 when the Saints were rolling and earlier this year when Brady was throwing for 6000 yards a game. Nothing against the Packers, but do you expect Matthews to say, “We’ve maxed out now and I don’t think we have any room for improvement.”? They still have a suspect defense and let Carolina and Atlanta push them around to start their games. Of course they can get better.

  5. philwauke says: Oct 10, 2011 8:05 AM

    Since the NFL can’t agree on HGH testing the packers linebacker corps will see dramatic improvement.

  6. spreadthecheese says: Oct 10, 2011 8:12 AM

    I’m a huge Packers fan and I’m definitely excited for how this season has begun, but the only season that really matters is playoff season.

    One game at a time until then.

  7. packermilitia says: Oct 10, 2011 8:16 AM

    I wouldn’t go that far. It’s only 5 games, we still have issues on the O-Line and the Defense has to get get much better. Besides, you are slapping St. Vince down with that disrespect. The pressure is mounting each week. I’d rather they lose during the season than go undefeated and choke in the playoffs.

  8. cmstrick says: Oct 10, 2011 8:18 AM

    Proud of the way my boys responded tonight. Atlanta’s still a good team, and being down 14-0 after two drives might have crushed the hope out of many teams. Matthews is right.

  9. tatum064 says: Oct 10, 2011 8:18 AM

    meh. Falcons played a decent first half, that Matty Ice melted and didnt attempt to test them deep – dumping off for short safety valve passes, and they abandoned the running game, too soon.

    They were exposed, and the Lions are waiting. I remain unconvinced. Hit Rodgers and he is still just another QB. His escapability is the x-factor and weakness.

    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves…..Nice win last night. We have the Rams next week in Lambeau. That should be and will be the teams Focus. It’s five games in a sixteen game regular season.

  12. toonsterwu says: Oct 10, 2011 8:37 AM

    As of now, the Packers are the clear favorites this year, and I’m sure everyone can acknowledge that at this moment. That said, this isn’t such a dominant team that you could definitely pencil them in right now to win a Super Bowl. You certainly need a great combination of things to beat them as of now, a dominant DL, a front 7 capable of slowing down the run, and an offense that can establish the run early in the game while staying close. There’s several teams out there that have the potential to do that. Furthermore, they need that shaky OL to stay healthy and solid, something that’s no guarantee.

    Don’t get me wrong, clear favorites right now, and they can get away from establishing the run due to the fact that they jump out ahead all the time. But no team is a lock to do anything in the NFL (the Patriots 16-0 squad, a juggernaut, is a testament to that), and there are some clear areas of question on this Packers team.

  13. jdog21b says: Oct 10, 2011 8:37 AM

    It’s not that the Packers are a good team, it’s the fact that the Falcons (more notably Matt Ryan) choked the game away right MDS? Teams never come back from deficits by making adjustments… that is unheard of.

  14. bamasleeper13 says: Oct 10, 2011 8:42 AM

    The Packers find a way to win. The coaches made great corrections early on and then they shut the Falcons down.Scary? Yeah I’ll say they are scary! Go Pack Go!!

  15. jimmy2litre says: Oct 10, 2011 8:44 AM

    I can’t believe how many packers fans out there just seem to forget that the Saints handed them their win in the season opener… Packers were at home and were clearly outplayed….

    I believe the Saints are the best team in the NFC and would bet big money on New Orleans if the Pack were to play them in the Dome…

    nobody can deny that the Saints lost that game much more than the Pack won it…

  16. grogansheroes says: Oct 10, 2011 8:48 AM

    I’m from Boston, and I saw Matty Ice play many games at Boston College. I make a lot of money betting against him if you know what I mean.

  17. pack1980 says: Oct 10, 2011 8:51 AM

    Some clown just said “hit Rodgers and he is just another QB”? Considering he has the fastest release in all of football, that is not an easy thing to do. Did you watch the game last night? They broke this exact fact down and even had footage.

    The only way Rodgers gets hit is when someone comes untouched or he scrambles out of the pocket. BTW – he had the second most rushing yards behind Vick last year for any QB. Don’t post if you are just going to throw out some stupid comment that has no merit. Go back to your mom’s basement and check on your 27 fantasy sports teams.

  18. CKL says: Oct 10, 2011 9:00 AM

    The most impressive thing to me was how they adjusted IN GAME to losing their LT Clifton. It was a struggle at first no doubt, but the hardest time to adjust to losing a guy is in the heat of the moment with no practice time to prepare. They settled things down with better playcalling and execution. Teams that can do that are scary. I’m glad the Pats don’t play GB this year.

    CKL – The Pats don’t have the Pack on their schedule this year.

    Yet

    It’s a long season. Look for the team that gets hot around the 14th week of the season – remember that the Packers were a wild-card team last year when they got hot.

    From the biggest Packers fan around.

    Don’t peak to early!

    The Giants peaked in the playoffs years ago to win it all. The Packer peaked at the right time last year.

    Just don’t wanna see the Pack fizzle mid season and coast in the playoffs.

    A long season and a lot can happen!

    GO PACK GO!

  32. richm2256 says: Oct 10, 2011 10:12 AM

    To Clay Matthews and every “19-0″Packer’s fan here;

    As a Pat’s fan, let me remind you of the 2007 New England Patriot’s ……….

    16-0 going to into the playoffs means NOTHING if you don’t win the Super Bowl. That 18-0 part wasn’t as important as that 19th game. I’d rather they went into the playoffs at 14-2 and won the Super Bowl than go 18-0 and lose it.

    Worry about the 19th game more than the first 16. An undefeated season is vastly overrated if you don’t focus on thebig prize.

  33. Derty Ernie says: Oct 10, 2011 10:17 AM

    Matthews is just fine……5-0 is all that matters right now.

    —————————————————————-
    Had to stare at this post for a while ……… hard to believe this isn’t the rantings of some delusional Bills fan.

    The Bills – after 20 years of sucking – are actually a team to worry about again.

    Biggest story of the season so far. Bigger than the Lions story, which was started last year, bigger than the sudden rise of the Texans, and bigger than the mirage-like success of the Niners.

    As a Pat’s fan, it’s weird to all of a sudden be more worried about the Bills than the Yets or Dolphins, but I’m glad for Bills fans after suffering such mediocrity for so long, plus a strong Bills team keeps the Patriots on their toes.

    But to read that a team hasn’t beentested because they haven’t played the Bills yet, and take that SERIOUSLY instead of laughing your a$$ off, that’s just too weird for words.

    While the Packers are a great team with a lights out QB, that defense needs to play much better. I’m not ready to crown them – and I’m a huge fan.

    All this hype is fun, especially for packer fans, but I wish the media, as well as the players would throttle back a little on the dominance thing. Is the pack offense the most potent in the NFL right now? You could argue that as a yes…. But defensively they are middle of the road or below. Defense wins championships.

    Absolutely a great game against Atlanta. Had me out of my chair numerous times, pounding the recliner at other times, and heading for something cool to drink at all times to try to keep my composure. Man, it was exciting football. Love our QB’s solid demeanor and steely-eyed accuracy and feel his pain when he’s sacked.

    Clay was fine coming off minor injury. The men stepped it up in the 2nd and never looked back.

    Glad the team has a one-game-at-a-time attitude. This 1st half scare for the fans hopefully reminds the guys that on any given day, any given team can beat the best if the planets don’t align. Go, Pack, Forever!

  55. rodgerthat says: Oct 10, 2011 1:08 PM

    I get a kick out of all these saints fan comments. Saying that the Saints lost, the packers didnt beat them is just well dumb! Also all this “the packers barely got by the panthers”! That is the best yet. If you claim to be a saints fan, I assume that means you watch the games….. Did you miss how narrowly the saints got by the panthers yesterday????? These comments are almost as absurd as the dream team hoopla that crashed and burned. Denail is no where to live son!

    Glad to see Matthews keeping it humble-yet-optimistic, using the word “improvement” regarding his team instead of words like “arrived”, “champions”, “dream team”, etc.

    I’m a Pack fan, but know that “pride comes before the fall” (as we learned from many of the Favre years where he’d play really great during the season, and then lay a 3+ int egg or just throw an untimely int in a playoff game which sealed a loss.)

    Even if you have as many pieces in place as possible, as Ted Thompson mentioned last year, the final ingredient to reaching and winning the Super Bowl is simply a little “luck”.

    Not sure if anyone posted this as I didn’t read all 60 posts. But how bad was that officiating last night? Not just one way or the other, they were horrible on both sides.

    Clay has a face like mine and I have never used HGH or any other performance enhancers. Some of us are just more beastly and manly than a pencil-necked geek like colonelcamp. And it is possible to get better as you get older. Have you seen the Kurt Warner Story?

    Its great to see the Packers at the top of the football world but lets keep it real fellow Packer fans. Like Clay Mathews stated “we haven’t played our best football yet”. I totally agree with that statement and after watching the first 5 games this season I see alot of areas that requires improvement. I wont go into all the areas but we all know we could start with our D. Next, eliminate pre snap penalties and lastly, better pass protection is a must prior to facing the Lions (they looked great last night). I hope the Packers don’t get to full of themselves like we the fans seem to be as of late. Again, I feel the Pack is currently are the best football team in the NFL. That is not to say there isn’t any room for improvement. The Packers can get beat on any given Sunday that is why they play the games.
    I do feel compelled to answer the obvious disgruntled Saints fan who feels his boys clearly out played the Packers. Sir you need to get a grip on reality. I tip my hat to the Saints for a hard fought game but the certainly did not outperform the Packers.
    Finally lets not get ahead of ourselves and enjoy the Packers pursuit of greatness this year and take it one game at a time. There is alot of football left to be played and with a little luck we will end up in the Super Bowl again.
