Packers Offense Makes Indirect Strides

  2 years ago     169 Views     1 Comment  

It has been said "You learn more from your failures than successes." This is true. While I would in no way characterize the Packers offensive performance as a "failure" the fact remains that a lot of players put down film that they can learn from. It started with the first play from scrimmage, a brilliantly conceived and perfectly executed play-action pass that hit Ty Montgomery in the hands down the right sideline in what would have been at the very least a big gain...had he caught the ball. I said before this game that I would be disappointed if the…

Keys to a Packer Win Over the Seahawks

We're just a couple days away from the critical early season rematch of the NFC Championship game and I'm feeling pretty good going into this game. That, of course, doesn't mean that I think the Packers are completely prepared for this matchup. They still have some serious question marks that they, no doubt, have been working on all week long but will remain question marks until the game is done. There are, however, several reasons that make me think that the Packers are going to walk away from this game with win number two and shake the green and blue…

Vic Ketchman didn't want to answer this one (understandable), but I thought it was an interesting question so I answered it in Part 2 of Breaking Down a "Special" Offense this morning. But Packernation always has an opinion. So today's Packernation poll asks the question; "Which returning player will have the most impact for the Packers this year? It's a tough question to answer because different positions measure impact in different ways. For Davante Adams and Richard Rodgers it may be touchdowns or yards after the catch.

Breaking Down a “Special” Offense: Part 2 – Tight Ends

There has been a lot of talk about how the Packers offense could be "special" this year, but what does that mean? In this series we will look at key statistics from last season to determine what positions, units, and aspects of the game could be improved to make the 2015 Packers offense better than the 2014 Packers offense. If there was one offensive position group that was less than stellar last season, it was the tight ends. If you don't lump them in with the backs, the Packers tight end group did some good things and showed up from…
