What to Expect From the Packers’ Passing Game This Season

  1 year ago     8 Views     Leave your thoughts  

Last season, the Green Bay Packers’ passing game went from one of the league’s best to one of the team’s most problematic areas on either side of the ball. While most fans expected a minor dip in production due to the preseason loss of Jordy Nelson, few predicted the straight dysfunction that ensued during the second half of the season. The passing game’s output was so poor that it begged the question of whether the Rodgers-less offense during the second half of the 2013 season was even more effective moving the ball through the air. With the 2015 offensive line…

Has TT Scored on Another “Plug-and-Play” Rookie?

With a perennially youth oriented team like the Green Bay Packers, there is a certain inevitability. From time to time, rookies will have to step in and make a significant impact from day one. This is not the rookie that has to step in because a veteran player goes down, this is a rookie that has to get up to the speed of the NFL game, absorb all the installs and concepts, and limit mistakes from week one through the playoffs. The Packers have been able to do this in the past with guys like Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Randall…

One of the things that I'll be watching in 2016 really has nothing to do with the strategy or mechanics of football. There are always those immeasurable things that often factor into how an NFL team produces on the field. Things such as a coaches ability to mentor and motivate can give the team an edge over a coach that is good at strategy, but not so good at motivating his players. In particular, I think it's going to be interesting to see how Sam Shields develops as a leader on the defense. (more…)

R&R Defensive veterans

  1 year ago     13 Views     Leave your thoughts  

Everyone seems to be buzzing about the rookies this year so I want to talk a little about the veterans. The Backers With Matthews moving back outside I'm personally excited to watch him get after the QB's again from his natural position.  Nick Perry has had health issues and finds himself working on a one-year "prove it" deal but for 5 years he has struggled to stay on the field so we will see.
