Clay Matthews Would Just as Well Forget About Thursday Night
You know, that really could've gone better.
The Los Angeles Rams lost to the Seahawks in Seattle on Thursday night, which of course is nothing to be ashamed of at all.
However, on a personal level, Clay Matthews didn't have the best of evenings.
The longtime Packer and brand new Ram got flagged yet again on one of those ambiguous roughing the passer calls.
Yep, here's Clay having another piece of his soul ripped from his body:

Christ, he may as well play for the Saints.
Obviously, this shit call led to the Seahawks game-winning TD, so cheers to another fine interpretation of the most convoluted rule book on Earth.
Those observant folks on Twitter correctly pointed out that Matthews appears to be the target of a vendetta:
Official NFL rulebook on roughing the passer:— Tyler Brooke (@TylerDBrooke) October 4, 2019
“If Clay Matthews did it then it’s a penalty.”
Actually, that's verbatim.
So there's the insult.
Now for the injury.
Matthews broke his jaw during the game and will miss at minimum of one month.
That's just a big bowl of wrong.
