Normally, Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews acts like a tiger or a lion stalking prey when he goes after enemy offenses.
if you wanted to guard your house, dont buy a tiger. just hire Clay Matthews to stand in the lawn and tackle anything that moves.— Thomas. just Thomas. (@T3A_Squared) December 4, 2011
However, in the Packers' 27-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, he seemed comparably pussycat-like because of the limits he had with his hand in a bowling ball-sized cast.
Matthews used feline-references when talking to NBC26's Dan Koob about how his less-encompassing apparatus on his injured right hand might help him Sunday against the New York Giants.
Clay on Cast- "You know it's funny, you think you can play with a club but there's something about it. It's like a cat..."— Dan Koob (@DanKoob) November 14, 2013
"Cut it's whiskers off and it loses it's balance. I've never done that but I've heard that's what happens. That's how I felt..."— Dan Koob (@DanKoob) November 14, 2013
"So I'm hoping with my fingers back I'll be like a feline with his whiskers back . And I'll be able to be more spry out there— Dan Koob (@DanKoob) November 14, 2013
