Divisional Round Day 1: Packers Should Take a Lesson

The first day of divisional round match-ups is over and the Falcons await the winner of the Packers versus the Cowboys while the Patriots are once again at Foxboro to take on the winner of the Steelers versus the Chiefs. There was one offensive approach that was a big difference in the success of both the Falcons' and the Patriots' offenses yesterday. The Packers should take a lesson, it could be the difference between winning and losing. First, what did both offenses do effectively that led to their overall success, why the Packers should factor in the same philosophy, and what…

With air temps hovering around zero and wind chills possibly in the minus 20 range, the Packers versus Bears game this time around may take on a different tone than the Packers/Seahawks cold weather game last Sunday.

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

  1 year ago     110 Views     Leave your thoughts  

Mike McCarthy says stats are for losers...yet he uses them every day. In reality, I agree with McCarthy wholeheartedly...I constantly see stats quoted as if they are predictive...especially in fantasy football. 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…
