Green Bay - Maybe the Packers should bench OLB Nick Perry more often.

The 2012 first-round pick found himself on the bench in place of Mike Neal when the defense took the field against the Detroit Lions and until Clay Matthews was removed from the game in the second half, he saw mostly spot duty.

Perry did not throw the towel in after getting benched. Instead he sacked Lions QB Matthew Stafford twice, knocked him down another time, forced a fumble and finished with five tackles. It was by far the best game of his 10-game pro career.



The benching probably didn't have as much to do with his performance as opportunity did.

I'm starting to like our OLB rotation. Neal is finally finding a position and by shedding weight, should stay injury free (crossing fingers).

The one thing that was noticeable about Perry's performance was that he seemed more comfortable rushing from the right side than the one he usually plays. Perry played the right side in college and it might just seem more natural to him.



Could it be something so simple that was hampering him? I know Matthews has the right and depending on the severity of his thumb injury but he can rush from just about anywhere standing up.

Detroit's Ts suck, so I'm not getting too excited.

Still, they did what they were supposed to do, and they're both still ascending as players.

Good Point. Even if Matthews can play with the thumb, it should help to rotate him because of the chronic hamstring. Both Perry and Neal doing a good job is great news.

Tell that to the Bears DEs... they only got one sack as Lions put up 40 points. Sure they're not the best but they're good enough to let their team do a good bit of damnage.

Though of course you do have to give Cutler some of the credit for the Lions points but still, the OTs held the Bears DL off for what was probably 40 drops backs back Stafford.

Does anyone think that Perry plays better on the right side rather than the left side? I saw him go on Matthews side a couple times and he caused some havoc. Infact I think he got both his sacks on that side.

They like to have the bigger OLB on the left, thinking teams like to run more to that side. Perry's bigger than Matthews, but Neal's bigger than Perry.

I agree with that mindset. But i'd like them to use him on the right side more on pass rushing situations, like they have been starting to notice about him. Use your players where they fit best. That's one of the keys to success.

In the base defense, I think he should continue to work at LOLB though. In Nickel and Dime, more of the right side.

Very much so, he looked a lot more natural and quick from the right side. I'm not sure if that's because he's more used to it (as he played the right side in college) or he played harder and meaner after being benched or the LT was playing worse than the RT or some combo of thoses.

But he played well enough at ROLB, that I kind of want to see them let Perry focus there. And rotate Matthews around trying to put him on the RT and/or worst OL instead of the LT every time.

Also Neal looked better in this game against the RT. Which is interesting seeing as Perry looked better against the LT.

I wonder how Matthews would look at ILB. It seems like you could disguise a blitz better from ILB; We know Matthews can cover against the pass; With B. Jones and Francois injured, help is needed at ILB; Matthews, Perry, and Neal arguably have been the most effective LBs in general, so I like the idea of all three in the game together.

I would like to see Dom move Clay around as situations change putting all 3 on the field at the same time periodically.

I'm happy to say I was wrong regarding the Neal experiment.

I think on the left side he has more responsibility, as far as holding down the corner and stuffing the run. On the right side he's probably free to just attack the QB.

Good thoughts guys. I think that is what coach meant when he referred to situational football.

I agree and it was also said that Perry played his entire college career on the right side. Maybe its him being comfortable rushing from that side.
