Charles Woodson: “Claymaker” has to be freed up

Charles Woodson says the Packers need to start using Clay Matthews more creatively according to Tyler Dunne and Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

“We have to find ways to get Clay to the quarterback whatever that may be,” Woodson said. “Draw some things up for him and just let him do his thing. We can’t continue to allow him to be stuck on the side and double-teamed every time he gets upfield. So I think for us, finding ways to get him to be the ‘Claymaker,’ which he is. We’ve got to find some ways to get him to the quarterback.”

Woodson sees Matthews spinning his tires against double teams. Green Bay’s top pass rusher finished with one tackle and zero sacks – and has only three sacks on the season.

“The way we went out there and played defense today was disappointing from a lot of different aspects,” Woodson said. “Just a lot of bad football.”
