Comments on: Clay Matthews Expects Fewer Double Teams http://www.totalpackers.com/2014/04/17/clay-matthews-expects-fewer-double-teams/ Your Green Bay Packers: Telling It Like It Is Fri, 31 Oct 2014 23:40:29 +0000 hourly 1 By: Deepsky http://www.totalpackers.com/2014/04/17/clay-matthews-expects-fewer-double-teams/#comment-303422 Mon, 21 Apr 2014 13:58:37 +0000 http://www.totalpackers.com/?p=22469#comment-303422 Peppers wasn’t double teamed last year while on the Bears defense, and he was mostly contained. The only good games he had were against central division foes like the Packers. I think he’s mostly done. Unless he more or less tanked it, which is a real possibility playing for the Bears, he’s pretty much done. This would mean Matthews still would get double teamed for the 8 games he’ll play this season.

Sacks will be the cherry on top.

If you’re making b 6 figures + for half a year of work, the least you can do is bust your ass 16 or so times during that span. There’ll be plenty of time to sleep when you’re dead.

If your on the field, at the snap you go balls out to kill the other motherfucker in the different uniform and don’t stop until you hear that shrill whistle.

Doesn’t matter if your name is Peppers, Matthews, Jones, Neal, Raji – whatever.

Kinda like Pryor’s joke about George Foreman’s boxing style.

“Which one the referree? Cuz ahmo kill the other motherfucker.”

They can switch up who “takes it easy” on a play simply by letting the guy who has single coverage go balls out.

This is what I was hoping to see from our “Bear Killer” in last years draft.

As long as Datone isn’t a bust and we can find a decent linebacker or safety in the draft , our defense could be top 5 I believe

I believe the Peppers’ signing has a lot to do with addressing that specific need.

That is typically what great pass rushers near the end of their career still bring to the table. They can get a key sack in the fourth quarter that can make the difference between getting a stop or allowing a go ahead or winning score.

He’s not going to be an every down player. He doesn’t have to be. If he plays 60% of the defensive plays per game we should get some real production from him. He can go balls out on pass rush knowing he not going to play every defensive snap. Big difference when you have a role to play versus being the linchpin of the defense.
