From the moment the Packers went against stereotype and signed former Bears defensive end Julius Peppers, the question became how they'd use him. That has been answered, for now. According to Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Peppers would work with the linebackers in practice, but would have multiple roles in the...

Clay and Julius coming off the same side would be a damn nightmare, coming off opposite sides they will be a damn nightmare. Peppers in coverage, probably not a nightmare, at least for the opponent.

The being in coverage thing gets pretty overblown I think. Even if one of the OLB is bad in coverage he's still not going to be doing it very often. The most targeted OLB last season was only thrown at 23 times and only 5 guys were thrown at at least 15 times. It's a pretty insignificant part of an OLB game for how much it gets talked about. One of those things where if you have one that can cover then great but if you don't then meh, who cares.

Well we won't see much of Matthews and Peppers together because at the going rate Matthews should miss around 8 games this year. We should really trade his injury prone ass. Maybe get a 1st rounder from oakland and draft mack or clowney.



Clay Matthews doing well and is ready for the regular season. head coach Mike McCarthy said LB Clay Matthews (thumb) broken thumb has knitted together nicely and he does not expect him to have any issues with it moving forward.

Ok so a guy starts off with 2 games which he got 4 sacks each and the next 6 games he gets none, would he be an awesome pass rusher with an average of 1 a game or is it just an average player that got lucky?


Here is his games played starting from rookie year

2009 16 games played (only season he played every game)
2010 15 games
2011 15 games
2012 12 games
2013 11 games


to we see a bad trend here or is he worth the 22 million a year?

What about them? Guy broke his thumb and came back before it was fully healed and re broke it. The only real recurring injury he's had is the hamstrings and he's missed a whopping 5 games from them in 5 years. The injury prone thing is getting a bit overblown. Either way saying "the going rate" is he'll miss 8 games is just stupid.
