Clay Matthews hopes next Bears QB as “willing” as Jay Cutler to help him pad sack totals

Clay Matthews is going to miss Jay Cutler. The Packers linebacker knows he has more sacks against Cutler than any other quarterback.

Matthews, who has 72.5 sacks in eight seasons, sacked the former Bears quarterback 8.5 times.

“Listen, I always enjoyed playing against Jay,” Matthews said on the Rich Eisen Show on NFL Network. “Obviously, he rubbed some fans the wrong way. I know people get on him about his nonchalant attitude, but I always enjoyed playing against him. I’m glad I got a lot of sacks against him. I’ll miss that the most. But hopefully the next in line in Chicago will be as equally willing to help me pad my stats.”

Matthews vividly recounted the 2012 game in which he sacked Cutler 3.5 times. Eric Walden shared one of the sacks with Matthews, much to Matthews’ chagrin.

“He stole half a sack,” Matthews told Eisen. “I even think as petty as I am I petitioned the league to get that half sack. They didn’t give it to me.”

    Clay Matthews is the definition of slightly better than mediocre.

    Seriously bro?

    Not a Cutler fan in the slightest bit why twist that knife? Just sound like a douche.

    The post from the Minnesota dummies will lower the IQ average on this site if that’s possible

    The thing about sacks is you have to actually be on the field to get them.

    -Signed every Packer fan tired of Clay’s two game seasons.

    Has Clay Matthews done anything since the NFL started testing for HgH?

    All of Mathews sacks have been padded and fabricated by PED’s.

    “I even think as petty as I am I petitioned the league to get that half sack. They didn’t give it to me.”

    Pretty much sums up Clay Matthews.

    How about you take cheap shots and break the arms of Bears QB’s too. Or take cheap shots at any team’s QB. Oh, never mind.

    Matthews is a classless excuse of a football player. But the Packer trolls all think he’s a god. Watch how they defend him- it’s hilarious.

    I’m a Packers fan, but this doesn’t sound like Packer people at all.

    Of course he does, because if Fabio has to rely on his own abilities to get sacks, I smell a goose-egg coming.

  11. jbvikes says: Jul 11, 2017 11:50 PM

    Overrated. Barely half a sack per game average and he makes big $. Bet he doesn’t stay healthy for the entire season.

    Da Bearz!

    Cutler only laid down for ya because you look like his wife. You’re not Glennon’s type, instead he may just zip frozen ropes over your weak secondary and call it a night.

    Stay classy

    Same old Jay.

  16. urlachersmash says: Jul 12, 2017 1:24 AM

    A half sack average per game on Jay and that Cro-magnon is gloating?

  17. dino2997 says: Jul 12, 2017 2:25 AM

    Clay Matthews is a pretty unlikeable player unless you’re a Packers fan

  18. ak185 says: Jul 12, 2017 3:20 AM

    Stay classy, Clay.

  19. thisistheendifyouletit says: Jul 12, 2017 5:19 AM

    You tried to take half a sack from a teammate???

  20. atthemurph says: Jul 12, 2017 9:07 AM

    That’s some funny stuff right there.

  21. tjacks7 says: Jul 12, 2017 10:32 AM

    I see Clay “Speed Bump” Matthews is better at trash talking than he is at acting and tackling running backs. Just 38 tackles per year… Pathetic even though he’s probably the Pack’s leading tackler.

  22. cheeseisfattening says: Jul 12, 2017 12:52 PM

    I am shocked Clay Matthews admitted he does not want to compete against the best and is a me first player that cares more about his own personal statistics than his own teammates, said nobody ever.

    I’ve seen this guy make more plays in commercials then on the side.

    He’s the best. because he says he’s the Best.

  24. finchy74 says: Jul 12, 2017 4:02 PM

    All of the PEDs must have had a neurological impact.

    Dude has 11 sacks total in the past two years. Understandable that he’s hoping Chicago’s QB will pity him, but he should be worrying more about a nice retirement hobby.

  25. thegreatjimbrown says: Jul 12, 2017 9:23 PM

    Matthews has a sense of humo about Cutler and everybody’s gotta trash him for it? I think that’s funny in and of itself.

  26. MCxShow says: Jul 13, 2017 1:13 PM

    Clay Matthews needs to worry less about his stats and more on staying healthy in order to consistently help the team.

    I’m a Packers fan and he’s a frustrating player to root for because, while he does make a difference in the pass rush when on the field, he’s constantly hurt and not worth the money he’s being paid.

    Ok first off Clay Matthews is washed up he earned 3.5 of those 8 sacks against cutler when he had the worst line in the league if he was that great he should have had 8 sacks in one game that year against cutler. He sucks tell that DE to just hang up his cleets. Lol

  28. charliecharger says: Jul 14, 2017 7:46 AM

    Retire now Clay. You’re already showing signs of too many shots to the head. Remove the send button from your device.

  29. grizzlott says: Jul 17, 2017 8:04 AM

    He has one sack……..one sack against Chicago in the last 4 seasons (11/9/14). He had a total of 5.5 sacks against them in 2012……so hey….great year for him. Prior to that he was pedestrian and since then he’s been a non-factor.
