This has nothing to do with trolling Packers fans. In fact, this has nothing to do with team loyalties at all. This has to do with one of the most egrigious late hits we have ever seen.
If the NFL is serious about protecting QBs and defenseless players, there is no way Clay Matthews should go without a suspension for his hit on Colin Kaepernick yesterday.
Even without the pregame tough talk, this should have been an ejection (which it was not. In fact, it was laughably turned into offsetting penalties). As it is, it should at least be a one-game suspension. Watch it over and over again. Launching himself at a player clearly out of bounds and going for a hit up high. No question.
