NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, whose hair has become Green Bay legend, joined Boomer & Carton on Thursday morning to discuss his team’s upcoming trip to the Super Bowl.
“I went out to eat the other day for lunch, I couldn’t even get my order out without three people asking for my autograph,” Matthews said. “It’s fantastic, that’s what Green Bay’s all about and the city kind of revolves around this team.
“So, we’re one win away from making Green Bay one happy city.”
Matthews has heard people questioning the toughness of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler this week and thinks it’s “unfortunate.”
“It’s really unfortunate to see the reaction that he got, because ultimately he’s the only one that knows what he can and can’t do,” said Matthews. “I guess it’s part of the game. Jay’s a heck of an athlete, he’s going to give us trouble for years to come out in Chicago.”
Cutler was criticized by current and former players, fans and media members after leaving Sunday’s NFC championship game with a knee injury.
