PackerNation Head-to-Head POLL: Who Will Have More Yards?

  10 months ago     39 Views     Leave your thoughts  

One of the surprises of the Packers' 2016 season so far is the revolving door at the running back position. The concurrent injuries of Eddie Lacy and James Starks threw the Packers' offensive backfield into a tizzy. Then, Lacy had to be put on I.R. and Packers' head coach Mike McCarthy avoided the question as to whether the Packers were going to try to draw Lacy off the list once he is healed. Starks practiced this week, but coming off knee surgery in a season where he wasn't playing well anyway is cold comfort for a team that now has…

My Player to Watch

One of the most exciting propositions about this year's Packers team is that as the offense hits its stride, the entire team should start to see some players return. Mike McCarthy did not directly answer the question about whether the team was planning to get Eddie Lacy back off the I.R. list, but presumably they would have to strongly consider adding back a fresh Lacy if his recovery is complete. The defense expects to return several starters eventually, though we don't know when, but the offense has actually begun to flourish as the running back situation became more dire. Aaron…

Circle the Stat: Bonus Edition

Mike McCarthy says stats are for losers...yet he uses them every day.

But McCarthy uses the statistical data to get a clearer picture of tendencies and understand where the focus needs to be, and that is valuable. So from time to time, I do "Circle the Stat" and pull out a stat or two that I think matter and talk about why it matters. Usually, I do it on the live show "Good PackerNation Morning" but I thought I would throw in…

There Are No Moral Victories…However…

  10 months ago     50 Views     Leave your thoughts  

There is a saying in the NFL that there are no moral victories and that is true. A win is a win is a win and a loss the same. The Packers were unable to get a "W" yesterday and that is disappointing, especially as it pertains to the NFC North race. The Packers, with the loss against the Falcons, put themselves behind the 8-ball in the North and Packers fans find themselves hoping for a Jay Cutler (brief) resurgence tonight as the Bears take on the Vikings on MNF. There are no moral victories...however.... (more…)
