Hottest Take of the Week - Packers-Lions previews and Matub Dances

Matub reviews the hottest week 4 takes and pays up for a bet.

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Another week in the NFL has passed and more takes have been generated.

An old staple returns as Ryan Wood continues to knee-jerk tweet before taking a second to digest what just happened. After an incompletion from Aaron Rodgers to Jimmy Graham, Wood described the exchange with a single word: oof. Four minutes later, he found out the throw was tipped. This take itself is not terribly hot, but Matub takes issue with Wood being a repeat offender. Matub actually discussed this take with Aaron Nagler and Corey Behnke on Packer Transplants earlier in the week.

The TJ Watt tracker returns as Kevin King missed another game. There is a slightly new take on the whole situation, though. TJ Watt continues to be unimpressive after a massive showing against the Browns in week one. This week, Kyler Fackrell posted a similar stat line to TJ’s earlier performance.

Looking forward to this week’s opponent, the Detroit Lions, Matub discusses each team’s defense and how they compare. Erik Schlitt of Detroit Lions Breakdown did an episode about the Packers and used “yards allowed per game” as a comparison metric. Matub feels that only tells part of the story and decides to add further context.

Finally, many of the team’s receivers are injured this week so the Jordy Nelson truthers are once again out in force.

And, of course, Matub puts his money where his mouth is...in more way than one.
