    The Packers only beat themselves

    Justin Tuck of New York Giants thanks Green Bay Packers' Matthews for 'gift' playoff victory - ESPN New York

    I'm surprised a player like Matthews would say this I would've though Finley would be it.

    Re: The Packers only beat themselves

    It's not like Matthews is the first person to ever say anything like this, and I really don't think clay was saying that the Giants had no say in the result. Tuck really didn't need to go run his mouth about it, but it seems like the giants, along with the rest of the nfc east, do a lot of that.

    Re: The Packers only beat themselves

    I always wondered why their palms were so hairy.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    That's pretty much exactly what you are saying when you say that the opponent didn't beat you...

    "The fact is, (the Giants) didn't beat us; we beat ourselves," Matthews said to Yahoo! Sports. "We need to play our best ball when it counts. This year, I expect us to be right back where we should be."

    Tuck didn't need to run his mouth? How about Clay? Seems like the classy thing to do would be to just admit they got beat. Instead he plays the "they didn't beat us. we beat ourselves" card. It's weak at best, insulting at worst. What do you expect Giant's players to say?

    Clay's the one who should have kept his mouth shut.

    Clay could have also kept his mouth shut.

    If anyone gave a game away it was the 49er's, the NYG had no business being in the super bowl let alone winning it.

    Like others have said, I don't think Tuck is the one running his mouth in this case. I'd be interested to see your reaction if say, Jay Cutler said the same thing Matthews did. I have a feeling you'd rip him to shreds.

    The Packers beat themselves in the playoffs. Jay Cutler stands on the sidelines complacently during playoff games. The difference is the Super Bowl that all of those Green Bay players have a ring.

    Not sure what that has to do with anything in this thread.

    Edit: Oh wait I think I get it. If you win a Super Bowl, the stupid things you say are no longer stupid. Got it.
