Don’t call Clay Matthews an inside backer

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The beauty of throwing Clay Matthews, the inside linebacker, at the Chicago Bears in Sunday night’s win was in the surprise of it.

But how well will it work if teams can prepare for Matthews in his new position?

First of all, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy wanted to make one thing clear on Monday.

“Clay Matthews is not an inside linebacker,” McCarthy said. “He’s a football player.”

Nevertheless, if he and Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers want to use Matthews at all like they did on Sunday, when he played 38 snaps at inside linebacker next to A.
