Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews Jr. felt like they let the Giants escape with a win in the playoffs and it looks like Donte Whitner of the 49ers feels the same way after their loss in the NFC Championship.
“We felt like it was ours to lose,” Whitner said, via ProFootballTalk.com. “Especially after we beat the Saints, we felt like it was ours to lose. We felt like the Saints and Green Bay Packers were the two best teams in the playoffs and once they went down we felt like it was ours to lose, and we let it slip through our fingers.”
This has to be the first time in NFL history that a defending Super Bowl champion is being this disrespected and I’m sure the Giants are loving it because they feed off of this stuff.
