Clay Matthews’ Role With Packers

Clay Matthews’ new role has been a hot topic of discussion this week in Green Bay. Matthews added speculation that he wasn’t happy with his new role by not talking to the media for a couple weeks, but did speak yesterday. “I think I can do it all,” Matthews said. “I think over the years, I’ve been known as a sack guy, but I think what’s been lost in the shuffle is the...

LB Matthews on the move on field with Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) No matter how the Packers defense lines up, Clay Matthews is adamant that his top goal is to disrupt opponents and make big plays. It's just that Green Bay's best pass rusher these days may not be getting as much of a chance to do it close to the line, hovering around the same tight end or tackle on the edge play after play. A major wrinkle to the Packers...

Clay Matthews on adjusted role in Packers defense: 'I can do it all'

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Clay Matthews believes he's been known mostly as a "sack guy." With 50 sacks in his first five NFL seasons, Matthews is not mistaken.

Through two games this season, Matthews is rushing the quarterback less and dropping back into coverage more than he has in the...

No Way That’s Clay

The Packers haven’t gotten their money’s worth from Clay Matthews through two games. Making $66 million, the perennial Pro Bowl outside linebacker has been nothing more than adequate against Seattle and the Jets. For the defense to have any shot of slowing down its next two opponents – Detroit and Chicago – Matthews will have to make the jump from adequate to really good...

Green Bay Packers week two preview: New York Jets

There’s a very simple formula for the the Green Bay Packers to forget about last week’s debacle in Seattle: put on a show for the Packer faithful when the Packers take on the New York Jets. The game is set to kick off at 4:25 EDT on CBS. A loss would put much more pressure on the Packers, a team that is expected to make its sixth consecutive postseason appearance. A win, however...

Cory’s Corner: We have seen the best of Clay Matthews

Clay Matthews has started 66 of 80 regular season games in his five-year career. Nagging thumb and hamstring injuries have not let him start an entire season.Many Packers fans adore Clay Matthews. They love his energy, his post-sack theatrics and ability to make an offensive line melt. But have we seen the best from the “Claymaker?” The reason we have is because of the Bennett’s...

Packers wasted money on Clay Matthews

Green Bay will miss the playoffs this year and it’s not Scott Tolzien’s fault. The second coming of Brett Favre did manage to throw three interceptions against the New York Giants and doom his offense to watching the game from the sideline, but when he was on the field he played remarkably well (24 of 34 for 339 yards) and gave the Packers offense more life than they had had...
