    Sacks Combined in 2014 between CLAY MATTHEWS & JULIUS PEPPERS: 19 1/2

    Take the Over or Under, 19 1/2 total sacks this season between Clay & Julius


    Peppers sack totals going back from last year out, were: 7, 11.5, 11, 8, 10.5, 14.5
    Matthews sack totals were: 7.5, 13, 6, 13.5, 10. So 50 in 5 years.

    Neither has had a complimentary pass rusher to go along with them like they each have this year.
    I think Matthews is going to, if healthy, certainly beat his 13.5 total that he had in 2010.
    He will get a handful of sacks where Peppers flushes the QB his direction. Nobody else has done that really for Clay.

    Here's a bit of INFO, on Matthews, from Pro Football Focus.

    JULIUS PEPPERS > http://www.packers.com/media-center...-Peppers/e8573725-bbdb-4fd6-a085-ff577bf10228

    Looking forward to seeing this guy down twice on that opening Thursday.

    Assuming both players stay healthy and play 16 games, I'm going with 25 sacks. 15 from Matthews and 10 from Peppers. If the Packers offense keeps scoring, teams are going to pass a lot and create plenty of sack opportunities.

    If Matthews and Peppers stay healthy I expect them to combine for at least 20 sacks. In addition I think Daniels will benefit from having both of them rushing the passer as well.

    I like the way both of you guys think.
    We deserve a healthy season, actually a few of them.

    If the defense stays healthy, and if they add a safety who can add instant help back there as recent ones Vacarro (Saints), Reid (Niners), Thomas (Seachickens), Smith (Vikings), have, I think this defense can be at least a top-10, maybe top-5 defense this year.

    People forgot how great Matthews is.

    Read that write-up, study from PFF above if you want a refresher.

    OSHKOSH, you're the Negative Nancy in here?????
    Where's your faith? Must be expecting more injuries I bet..... we're DUE for a good luck there for once.

    I'm going to go with 21. 14 from Matthews and 7 from peppers. But I'm also predicting Neal to have 6 or so. I have literally no prediction for Perry. He could have a break out or bust out year.

    I am going to go with the over. I see Claymaker playing 14 games and racking up 13.5 sacks while Peppers plays all 16 and puts up 9.5 himself. I also see Daniels continuing to improve his game and bringing 7 to the table. Now if we can get some decent to good production out of Jones and Perry I really think our D is in for a pretty good year.
    Interceptions, passes defended and the like are many times created and caused by a ferocious pass rush. If we can get the kind of production listed above I see no reason why our T.O.'s shouldn't take a dramatic tick upwards and the secondary as a whole being a unit to be proud of. I don't care how good of a corner you are, it is damn near impossible to stay in a receivers pocket for 4, 5, 6 seconds without getting burned or flagged. There is always a direct correlation between pressure and T.O.'s and I think the secondary will be rewarded this upcoming season with the improved rush from the front 7. Fingers crossed all of this comes to be...

    GPG!

    It appears that I'm one of only two people to vote for the under so far, but I really hope that I'm wrong. The Injury Scythe hovers over both of them.

    I understand your concern with Matthews but Peppers hasn't missed a game since 2007.

    I'm purely thinking about age and he's on the Packers now, who seem to be snake-bitten with injuries

    I'm going with the under. I'm just not expecting big things from Peppers. But I'd be elated to be dead wrong.
