Dolphins OLT Jake Long vs. Packers right outside linebacker

Under normal circumstances, an outstanding matchup would be likely between Long, the top overall pick in the 2008 draft who has developed into one of the league's best left tackles, and Packers former first-round OLB Clay Matthews, who has been alternating quite effectively between the right side and the left side so far this season with a league-leading 8½ sacks. But nothing is normal these days with the Packers, who have been picked apart by injuries the past couple of weeks, including Matthews, who had to leave last week's game against Washington late in the third quarter with a hamstring injury that could make him iffy for this game. Both Long and Matthews are incredibly intense, and it would be a lot of fun to see these two knock each other around.

If Long, whose biggest strength is his run blocking, doesn't have to worry about Matthews, he'll obviously be a lot better off. But the combination of Brad Jones, who likely will start this Sunday's game on the right side even if Matthews is good to go; feisty undrafted rookie Frank Zombo; and Brady Poppinga, who did some good things against the Redskins last week, will certainly keep the 6-7, 317-pound Long on his toes.

Jake is the man... Clay should stay away from him, nothing worse than a hurt pride to go along with that hamstring...

i thought clay matthews [olb] [left??]lined up over right tackle more,?????. it looked like it on film from last game!??
and some others

so the question is vernon carey v matthews[if healthy??]
matthews is more like a kevin greene type player for me
and carey has got worse /or is average [ he could of been so good!!]
next year i would move him inside at right guard,because he sure struggles at right tackle time too time!

but to answer the question , clay matthews is a beast and would own carey!!
jake long no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Long has been awesome and is looking like another Richmond Webb in the making, but if he has one weakness it is speed rushers. Even if Matthews plays but his mobility is limited by a hamstring injury that will be big. Because there is no way the little man is going to shove Jake Long around on brute strength.
