07:39 AM ET 09.22 | The first player in Packers history to record consecutive three-sack games, Clay Matthews is also coming off a 10-sack rookie season. It was he who sacked the Eagles' Kevin Kolb from behind, stripping the ball and driving him into the ground so hard that the quarterback wound up leaving the game (and missing the next week) with a concussion. ... Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he believes Matthews belongs in the mix of the league's top five pass rushers, counting him among the likes of Indianapolis' Dwight Freeney, Minnesota's Jared Allen, Dallas' DeMarcus Ware and Chicago's Julius Peppers.

There are two groups of pass rushers. and they are not the same. The DE is one group and the LBs are a totally different group. To compare them is silly.

All of today's threads are about NFC teams.
