Packers Can’t Afford to Let Slide Continue

  2 years ago     105 Views     1 Comment  

The Green Bay Packers' offense has been a 3 and out machine lately. But as disappointing as the Lions game was, there were some positives that may help them in this NFC North stretch. A few guys are coming on, and just in time. No matter what the players say about this game being "just the next game", this upcoming Vikings game is critical for the Packers' goals this season and this offense can no longer afford to let the slide continue.  (more…)

R&R Packers/Lions

The Packers lost a game which never should have been close, yet McCarthy still won't do what needs to be done! He took a championship team from last season and changed everything about it in the coaching staff. Giving up play calling is a major issue which should be corrected, it's past due for him to resume the duties to get the offense which is their bread and butter back on track, Clements needs to be put back in the booth.

The decision to promote James Starks to starting running back was easy from a performance standpoint but difficult from a personal standpoint. I love that kid and hope he gets back on his horse very soon. In the meantime, James Starks will be an important cog in the Packers chances for the next four games. If there ever was an opportunity for the Packers to take the reins and show that control was never out of reach in the NFC North, the time is now. Aaron Rodgers said this week that he could not remember a stretch of NFC North…

Well, it is the middle of the week and while I am thankful that the Packers host the Lions this time around, a brutal away stretch after the bye week has me wondering about a few things. But let me start with this disclaimer. I am a Packers fan, always have been and always will be. I do not root for any other team at any time except the Green Bay Packers. OK, once in awhile I am tempted by "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" but that just means I cheer against the enemy...not for the enemy of my enemy,…

R&R: Packers/Panthers

  2 years ago     197 Views     6 Comments  

The Packers need to take a long look at themselves to figure out what's going on. The defense has shown they're capable of stopping any team for about 3 minutes then they go to sleep. I'm not sure why Dom Capers keeps playing prevent defense when teams are eating them alive each time he tries it - 3rd and 16 and he sends 3 for a pass rush, Why? Then he has them stuck deep on a 3rd down play which would have forced a punt and given them excellent field position and he plays zone instead of blitzing and…
