Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was flagged for roughing the passer against the Redskins. It’s the third week in a row that he has been penalized for a hit on the quarterback.

Head coach Mike McCarthy has had enough of Matthews being flagged every time he touches a quarterback.

A little ironic that it was a hit on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers that prompted the rule change don’t you think?
I love the calls on Matthews for just that reason. If Rodgers wasn’t so brittle this rule wouldn’t have been put in place to begin with.
