Jared Abbrederis Preseason 2015Tom Silverstein is reporting that the Packers have released Jared Abbrederis. GPN held a poll and the hundreds of respondents came to a deadlock on what they thought would happen to Abby. While many thought Jared Abbrederis would make the team, that may not be the reality soon. If Silverstein’s report is correct, Jared Abbrederis’ time with the Packers is in jeopardy but he could still end up with the team on the practice squad if he clears waivers. But here are the numbers from the poll:

47% of respondents thought that Abby would make the team and 47% percent thought that he would end up on the practice squad. It was my guess that the Packers would risk him clearing waivers and hope to get him on the PS. So at this point, just about everybody in Packernation is probably hoping for that exact outcome. For my part, I hope they are right because I think Abbrederis might survive the practice squad and have another chance at the roster.

Either way, this is a significant blow to Jared’s chances with the Packers but all is not lost. My worst fear is that he turns out to be a world-beater on another team.

    Realistically, Washington hasn’t beaten a team with a winning record all season. I may be underestimating their talent, but my opinion is that they’re the weakest playoff team of both conferences. Their offense is decent, especially if Cousins is allowed to get into a rhythm and they have serious speed at WR. Their front 4 on D is good, but their secondary is full of holes.

    If Rodgers is to get on a roll, this is the team to do it against. Our passing game has responded well late in games against much better Ds than this with no run game. I still think we’ll struggle to run the ball with a banged up O-line and Lacy’s sore ribs. I would never suggest we don’t run at all, but running on 1st and 2nd down and consecutive 1st downs has hurt us all year long. I’d like to see a 75/25 pass/run ratio – including a few runs by Rodgers.

    So my best guess is that it comes down to 5 keys:
    Consistent pressure on Cousins
    McCarthy’s play calling getting Rodgers into rhythm early with some timing routes and screens to RBs
    Not calling too many run plays which plays to the strength of Redskins’ D
    Rodgers playing well.

    I didn’t list our O-line playing well because Rodgers can overcome most of that when performing like he’s capable, and frankly, I’d prefer to see him tuck it and run to slow down the pass rush a bit. Go Pack go!

    Your dreaming if you think they are able to run the ball…….
    They don’t need bounces just a swift kick in the butt to Mc Carthy the play caller( joke)

      You could be right Bill…I may be dreaming. But I think a bounce or two our way is more likely than anyone giving McCarthy a swift kick in the butt. At this point, I would be content to see some consistent individual wins that add up to an extended drive. 😀
