I guess I'll use this post to state the purpose of this blog. In trying to follow Matthew's career as he moves on the NFL, I noticed that there wasn't a site where fans could find news about him without having to search all over the net. So I decided to take it upon myself to change that. Now this is my first blog ever so y'all have to bear with me while I get the hang of it.
