Retired San Francisco Giants’ slugger Barry Bonds once said that if you’re not getting booed by opposing fans, you’re not doing your job.
I guess that means if you’re on the wrong end of an insult from an opposing player, you’re doing your job.
Speaking about Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews referred to the talented signal caller as ‘what’s his name’ during a recent sideline interview.
Per the DC Sports Bog:
“It’s real good preparation,” he said, via the DC Sports Bog. “We start out the season with the 49ers. I mean, we got…uh…what’s his name?” Matthews was then asked if he was talking about Kaepernick. “No no, the Redskins, coming here Week 2,” he said. “So it’s great preparation.”
It’s a bit difficult to tell if Matthews really did just forget Griffin’s name or if it was a hint at something more, though, I’m going to give Matthews the benefit of the doubt here.
He did seem to have a bit of a moment during the interview where he lost his focus and the forgetfulness seemed genuine. And it’s not as if RGIII deserves to have a target on his back.
Seems like he just had a moment there.
