Matub begins with discussing last week’s hottest take as a clip was used during Cheesehead TV’s Packer Transplants livestream. The signal boost was enjoyed, but it also brought scorn as Matub was ridiculed by Packer fans for butting heads with beat writers.
Always the optimist, Matub took on the stance of “Look they’re saying my name!” and moved on.
With a Packer team that has now properly whooped two opponents that they were expected to, the takes about how the team is currently playing are few and far between. This week was expected to be somewhat of a drought. That is, until Pete Dougherty of Packers News wrote 1000 words about why letting Taysom Hill go was one of Ted Thompson’s biggest blunders.
This was definitely a take worthy of attention.
Taysom’s stats, use, and contract are heavily discussed and even used to draw a parallel to the current situation with Aaron Jones’ possible extension.
All this and more is yelled into a microphone on this episode of Hottest Take of the Week.
