Clay Matthews couldn't resist taking a shot at Jay Cutler.
“Listen, I always enjoyed playing against Jay,” Matthews said. “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.”
Now, Matthews does have more sacks — 8.5 — against Cutler than any other quarterback. That makes sense given the entire time Matthews has been in the NFL, Cutler has been the starting QB for a team in the Packers' division, meaning Matthews has had two chances a year to tee off on Cutler.
But Matthews' statement on "padding stats" also is curious given he hasn't had much success against Cutler or the Bears lately.
Matthews has 11.5 sacks the last two seasons...none of which came against the Bears.
In fact, the 31-year-old pass-rusher has just one sack against the Bears since 2013, and that came on Nov. 9, 2014, a fact Aaron Leming pointed out on Twitter:
That's five straight games against the Bears in which Matthews has not had a sack, though he's also been palying inside linebacker more and rushing the passer from the outside less due to injuries.
Still, Clay Matthews getting owned on Twitter is a great way to make a Bears fan's day.
