NFL promptly defends latest roughing-the-passer flag against Clay Matthews
09/23/2018 3:16pm

The NFL took the unusual step Sunday of expressing immediate support for a roughing-the-passer penalty against Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, the latest in a series of controversial efforts to protect quarterbacks this season.

"Green Bay is in a class [by itself] because they're obsessed with getting horrendous second-string quarterbacks." Therein lies the root of this discussion. The drop-off from starter to backup plays a definitive role in this conversation as well. "It's hard to get a worse backup quarterback than [Deshone] Kizer because he just can't play without making mistakes. If the backup were Colt McCoy, then Rodgers wouldn't be worth as much," Salmons said. While Rodgers is still valuable on one leg, other injuries...
