He did not drive Alex Smith into the ground.
Matthews broke in alone on Smith in the third quarter, wrapped him and brought him down. "You've got to give (Rodgers) different looks on defense, you've got to confuse him and you've got to send pressure at him". I understand the spirit of the rule.
Familiar foe Adrian Peterson is now the feature back for Washington after they lost second-round pick Derrius Guice to injury during the preseason. "What can I do differently?" "What he's dealt with as far as the amount of change just speaks volumes about him as a football player and a person".
But like Cobb typically does, his role in the offense was more so an underlying factor in helping open up targets for other players; somewhat of a decoy. But it's even more clear that it won't be for some time.
"He's got to know what's up - meaning, what plays are up", Rodgers said of McCarthy. He was coming full speed off of a block. "I was fine with what Clay did".
"Unfortunately, this league is going in a direction that a lot of people don't like".
"So, disappointed. I tried to change from last week and still get the flag".
"(I) would like to see football be football", Matthews said. "Maybe now pass rushers, guys getting after the quarterback, you'll just have to attack the ball".

Bills, rookie QB stun Vikings
Left tackle Riley Reiff was beaten regularly by Jerry Hughes , who had one of the sacks that caused a fumble. Cousins and the Vikings are now 1-1-1 on the year, facing the Rams in Los Angeles on Thursday night.
"I'm glad I don't play defense". "It's insane. They brought their fans to the hotel we're staying in", Norman said.
"I've been playing this game for over 20 years, that's how you tackle". He's played a long time. Because Smith is not a big-play quarterback, efficiency inside the red zone is critical. More than 30 roughing-the-passer penalties were called in this season's first two weeks.
"Every week, " Redskins coach Jay Gruden said, "there seems to be another one that's a little bit questionable".
"Yeah, obviously that's a concern", Rodgers said.
Not surprisingly, Packers teammates agreed with Matthews.
But it also looks like a problem that isn't going away any time soon.
It appears that the Packers might be without one of their top cornerbacks against the Redskins in Kevin King. "He moved out of the pocket more than probably I would like, but I really won't know the extent (of how he's feeling) until tomorrow". Whether it was straight up missing tackles or just taking poor angles, he missed a few on the day that could have led to much bigger plays if not for his teammates cleaning things up for him.
