Jayrone Elliot PackersWe’ve seen a bunch of good stuff out of Jayrone Elliott this season. And, the game against the Rams was no different.

Elliott didn’t take long to contribute in grand style. In game two against the Seahawks, Elliott picked off Russell Wilson, ending a Seahawks drive. Against the Chiefs, Elliott added two tackles, but also logged a sack against Alex Smith.

Most Dangerous Substance on Earth - Packer Offense

When the Packers faced the Rams on Sunday, Elliott again made key contributions to the defense that really showed off the kind of speed the guy has.

Several times the Rams tried to run off tackle opposite Elliott. They’re scheme was fairly sound. The way those plays are drawn up, the entire line shifts away from Elliott’s side of the field. The theory behind it is that the offense gets greater numbers out in front of the running back and the running back gets downfield before the unblocked man can get himself into the play.

The only problem for the Rams was that they underestimated Jayrone’s speed. Several times he dragged the running back down from behind as he attempted to hit the hole and go. Speed of that nature makes it more difficult for offenses to scheme against the Packer defense, and speed like that gives Dom Capers a lot of options for defensive alignments.

This defense is playing very well and, I think, it’s just going to get better and better as the season wears on.

    Sounds likes Jones should play ILB position. He’s fast and will learn the position quickly. This is where the Packers are the weakest and need help.
