What is funny to me is how discussions of switching to 4-3 or staying in 3-4 really do point to the athleticism of Clay Matthews. The guy is a remarkably talented and capable football player.

I am a bit torn about staying in a 3-4. We really do need a bunch of players on D, regardless. Clay would make a great MLB or WSLB in a 4-3. Switching to a 4-3 may increase his effectiveness overall, and give his career more longevity. The bigger problem is with the rest of the front 7 players. We don't have enough consistent playmakers. As good as Matthews was last season in getting to the QB, he sure got washed out a lot when it mattered most. The good teams always seemed to have an answer for him. Part of that was we once again had no one opposite him as a threat.

I think the return of Perry is key in this. He is a better 4-3 player at rush end, than a 3-4 player at OLB. Clay is going to be a great player no matter where he lines up. We need DL across the board. Why not switch?

If they stay in 3-4 or decide to switch to a 4-3, all I want is for them to give Capers better players to run his defense.

3-4 is a more flexible style. Let's face it we run a 2-4 more often.

I look for Capers to run a more hybrid style with this personnel.
