APP #63 - The Lyin' Lions

EGame flow was very weird to start - the Packers defense looked like their usual self and gave up 2 TDs on the first two drives. Rodgers and the offense kept up for a bit, then the damn broke and aPackers victory was basically sealed when Packers CB Chandon Sullivan had a pick six at the Detroit goal line early in the 3rd quarter. Also: Matt Patricia looks like a human nesting doll on the sidelines. Andy quickly sent a Slack message "miss it you asshole" a second before the lions kicker missed his kick to close out the first half...a new tradition was born. OFFENSE: Offense started off well and actually went for a fourth-and-long on the first drive where Rodgers threaded the needle to Allan Lazard. The offense through 2 games looks pretty good - spreading the ball around to a lot of different folks and showing a lot of pre-snap motion. MVS had an overall solid start to the game but got crunched by a safety on an incompletion late in the 2nd quarter. Jace Sternberger had two awful drops in this game...he's had a terrible start to his 2nd season. DEFENSE: The defense, collectively, is a big, bigproblem this year already only 2 weeks in to the season. The Packers simply do not have the collective horses on defense to get things done so Pettine MUST do some scheming, which he simply has not done. He plays so much zone defense...it's as if he doesn't trust his own players (maybe he doesn't?) Defense allowed a wide open29 yard passing gain on the 3rd play of the game. Yuck. The first big stop of the game for the defense came on 3rd and 25(!) The loss of Kenny Clark will loom large if he is out more than one week. Rashan Gary flashed in the late 3rd/4th Quarter - Packers look to still be easing him in but he is improving and he is quick. SPECIAL TEAMS: Not much to report here other than this unit has been very solid to start the year. JK Scott punted very well today, and Mason Crosby kicked a couple field goals without issue.

APP #62 - We've Got An…Offense?

EYear two of the Matt LaFleur era started off surprisingly well putting up 43 points on the road against a division opponent. Let's not kid ourselves though - it wasn't exaclty a "hostile environment" considering there were ZERO fans in the stands due to Covid 19 restrictions. OFFENSE: The offense started with an 8 minute drive that ended in a field goal. Hell they threw in areverse on the opening drive too. Aaron Rodgers was a man possessed today - he finished with 4 passing TDs and should have had a 5th but Davante Adams dropped a short quick slant on the goal line earlier in the game. Speaking of Rodgers: he had at least 2 (if not 3) unbelievable, vintage Rodgers throws in this game. An absolute dart to Davante for a TD in the end zone and a scrambling bullet to a tiny window to Allan Lazard. Outside of Patrick Mahomes, nobody in the league can make those throws. MVS was and is an enigma - the guy had a brillant long TD catch and then had back to back absolutely brutal drops right off his hands. Rodgers continued to feed him though and he had a couple more nice catches because of that. Davante Adams played great, save for his dropped TD. He is easily the best WR on this team and he may very well be a top 3 WR in the league right now. Packers RBs caught an array of short passes too. Honestly, it's good to see alot ofscreens and dump offs from Rodgers at this point in his career. The running game was serviceable, which is a bit odd because I think we all thought that the Packers would lean on the run game heavily vs. passing. However, with Aaron Rodgers on fire and slinging it all over the joint you don't mess with that formula. DEFENSE: The defense started off basically where they left off to end the season last year - they could not stop anyone running the ball with Vikings. In fact, they gave up an easy,quick 2 minute touchdown drive right after the Packers ate up 8 minutes to start the game. Jaire Alexander played well - he had a delayed blitze early that resulted in a safety on Kirk Cousins and he had an INT later in the game as well. He did give up a TD to Adam Thielen late in the game. Kenny Clark injured his groin early in the game and did not return - if that is a multiple week injury the packers are in even more trouble with their run defense because Clark is easily their best D-lineman and he might be their overall best defensive player. Darnell Savage is an enigma - he has his moments but so far he hasn't lived up to his draft status. They need better play out of him. SPECIAL TEAMS: Not much of anything to report here, which is a good thing I guess. Crosby made a couple field goals and the coverage and return units seemed ok. PREDICTIONS: J 30-24 Packers, A 30-21 Packers, E 24-21 Packers

APP#61 - The Packers are goin' to the 'ship!

EThe Packers are now 14-3 and playing this coming week for the right to go to the Super Bowl - UNBELIEVABLE! The Packers are the DREAM WARRIORS! This was a great home game at Lambeau Field on a cold but calm Sunday evening in Green Bay. Andy and Elliot werelucky enough to be able to get a ticket and see the game live! Andy's Usher Story: As a side note, there was an usher that told our entire section in the 3rd quarterthat we had to sit back down when every play was over Some old crotchety fans behind us were complaining non-stop... I (Andy) have never experienced this at a Packer game at Lambeau...it was ridiculous. Seattle came into this game pretty banged up and they got down early. The Packers went up by 3 scores going into halftime. Brian Bulaga was a last-minute scratch due to the flu. He was like the 9th guy on the team that was on the injury report this past week because of the flu Back-up swing tackleJared Veldheer was called upon and played great The Packers should have gotten the ball back immediately after their first touchdown early in the first quarter after they forced a Seahawks fumble, but the officials couldn't determine who had possession of the fumble after reviewing the play...whatever the hell that means. Davante Adams had a fantastic game with two long touchdown catches. He is an exquisite route runner - it's pretty special to watch him off the line of scrimmage. Davante might be emerging as the 2nd coming of Jordy Nelson, in that he and Rodgers have developed all-world chemistry...at just the right time. Jimmy "Ed West" Graham had the game of his life for the Packers. He had 4 catches, and 3 of them went for big 1st downs. Great to see him show up when it really mattered. Aaron Rodgers had a QB sneak for a big first down late in the game - his first QB sneak in a long, long time. Za'darius Smith had another great game, however,his partner Preston Smith might have had the defensive play of the game (or season) with his big third-down sack of Russell Wilson late in the 4th quarter. J'aire Alexander had a GREAT 2 point conversion "sack" late in the 4th quarter as well. The 2nd half saw Russell Wilson take over the game - he scored 3 straight TDs in the 2nd half by masterful play, escaping the rush and just making plays. Jeremy's Packers v. San Francisco Game Plan: Keep Adams away from Richard Sherman Other backs are very beatable Susceptible against the run The Packers HAVE to run ...but go with what's hot! Andy asked whether Rodgers should retire. Predictions: Andy: Packers will score less than 30 points. 24-2Packers Jeremy: 26-24 49ers Elliot: 17-16 Packers

EThe Packers moved to 10-3 (can you believe it?!) after narrowly beating the hapless Washington Redskins 20-15 at Lambeau Field. Andy attended this snoozefest (errr game) at Lambeau Field. The weather was beautiful for this time of year... The game was a mess in terms of the Packers' offense. Yikes. It's pretty amazing that this team is 10-3...I (Andy) picked them to be 8-8 at best - the fact that they have 10 wins with 3 games left in the season is astounding, in a good way! The offense has morphed into a Frankenstein version of the old late-term McCarthy offense with some things sprinkled in with Aaron Jones...more often than not the offense has looked completely out of sorts. The 800 lb gorilla in the room is the play of Aaron Rodgers - we can't really tell where his sub-par play ends or begins, but Rodgers hasn't been playing well for at least a month. Rodgers missed a streaking Jimmy "Ed West" Graham (lol) on a throw that would have been a TD. He also missed a wide open Aaron Jones on a wheel route later in the game. He refuses to take the short dump off passes...it's becoming a big concern. Geronimo Allison is not long for this team - he has been a major disappointment this season. He's been worse than pedestrian this year. The defense actually did it's job this week...they weren't lights out but they more than held their own. The special teams kick/punt return game FINALLY woke up...they are back to positive yardage for the season! JK Scott punted well for the 2nd straight game...Mason Crosby continues to kick at a pro-bowl level as well. Predictions for Packers vs. Bears: Jeremy: 19-16 Andy: 17-14 Elliot: 17-10

E9-3 is pretty darn good all things considered. Unfortunately wasn'tgame isn’t going to tell usanything unless they lost. Even a blowout win tells us nothing. The Packers did score a TD on their first possession, which was nice to see. It was a game that saw Aaron Jones mis-used (again) for whatever reason - granted he couldn't get much going in the ground game but given conditions the Packers should have just kept pounding him but they didn't. They continue this odd thing where they have one offensive series with Aaron Jones, then they pull him and give the next series to Jamal Williams Speaking of Jamal Williams - he played very well, he always plays hard no matter what is at stake. Brian Bulaga played a week after an MCL sprain and played pretty well - very impressive. Davante Adams quietly has 3 touchdowns in the last 3 games after having zero for basically the entire season (although he was hurt for a number of games). Alan Lazard had a nice game with a big 3rd down catch and he had a long TD reception too. He is the team's defacto No. 2 WR Geronimo Allison had a couple catches but he is very frustrating to watch - there was a sideline pass that went right through his hands - you've got to catch that! David Bakhtiari is having a down year - he had his 12th penalty today on offense. Not exactly all-pro... Thisdefense leaves so much to be desired - they basically have had all 11 preferred starters for the entire year and they rank in the bottom 1/4 of the leaguein every major defensive category. Don't let the 31-13 score fool you - this is a terrible Giants team and the Packers defense was their usual self for about 3 full quarters. Kevin King is an incrediblyinconsistent player - he flashes a lot of potential,but gives up way too many big plays considering it is his 3rd year in the league. He is what he is at this point - inconsistent. Kenny Clark played better today and had a great 3 yard run stuffing TFL in the 1st quarter. They desperately need him to emerge down the stretch. Mason Crosby is having a very good year, good for him- the rest of his unit is shitting the bed every week. ST is a disaster JK Scott had a much better game today vs. his past 3-4 games. Good to see him punt well in crappy weather too as he has struggled with that in his first two years in the league. Predictions: Andy 27-17 Elliot 28-14

EJeremy, as always, had a great recap HERE. Andy was actually at this game at Lambeau Field, his first since attending the Packers vs. Vikings last year. It was rainy and dreary for basically the entire contest but the conditions weren't bad enough to inhibit any game plans from either team.

APP #56 - We came, we saw, we Plundered!

EThe Packers are 2-0 to start the year AND 2-0 in the division...that is a very pleasant surprise! The Packers started this game on a break-neck pace offensively jumping out to a 21-0 lead on 3 straight TD drives, 2 passing and one rushing. While the Packers are 2-0, much of their early success has been because of their defense. The offense is maddeningly inconsistent and still needs a ton of work. This was the exact opposite start when compared to the previous game against the Bears where the Packers' offense had MINUS 17 yards of offense on their first 3 drives in that game(!) Everything on offense basically went away after the first quarter...there were stalled drives, poor play calling, turnovers, you name it and it happened from the 2nd quarter deep into the 4th quarter... The Packers' defense played pretty well, but they did give up a few big plays: Long rushing TD to Dalvin Cook on a really poor tackling angle taken by Darnell Savage Long TD pass to Stephon Diggs, the ball pro...

APP #55 - The Bears Still Suck

EThe Bears had quite a hyped-up offseason and managed to only put up 3 points(!) against what, at first glance, appears to be an actual, competent NFL defense by the Packers! Jeremy had a great recap HERE. The Packers' offense on the other hand, needs A LOT of work - their first three drives netted a grand total of NEGATIVE 17 yards or something. Let's face it - this game (for the offense) was basically the 5th pre-season game. Aaron Rodgers looked pretty darn average for most of the game, his mechanics and footwork are still really suspect for whatever reason... The collective offensive line, save for Brian Bulaga, had a rough night against the formidable Bears defensive front. Some of this is to be expected, but Layne Taylor got lit up all night and even David Bhaktiari gave up a few pressures. Aaron Jones was kept in check all night - he ran for maybe 30 yards the whole game Davante Adams was, at times, TRIPLE COVERED by the Bears. Somebody else has got to get open outside of Adam...

EIt's Bears Week! The roster is basically set going into the first game - thoughts on the final cutdown, waiver wire pick-ups, etc? Deshone Kizer was cut in favor of Tim Boyle - they are only carrying 2 QBs into the season Darrius Shepherd made the roster over Allen Lazard Packers traded for ILBDarrius Shepherd from the Giants! Sam Ficken got cut so the Packers are going with Mason Crosby at Kicker J'mon Moore (WR) a 2nd-year draft pick got cut Rookie TE Jace Sternberger was placed on IR today Matt Lefleur is getting tired of the media narrative about giving Rodgers the ability to audible at the line in the new offensive system. He had a little "dust-up" with the local beat reporter crew today. Vegas odds are being pretty generous to the Packers (probably due to Aaron Rodgers), but the Bears are picked to win this game

EThe Packers are 2-0 to start the year AND 2-0 in the division...that is a very pleasant surprise! The Packers started this game on a break-neck pace offensively jumping out to a 21-0 lead on 3 straight TD drives, 2 passing and one rushing. While the Packers are 2-0, much of their early success has been because of their defense. The offense is maddeningly inconsistent and still needs a ton of work. This was the exact opposite start when compared to the previous game against the Bears where the Packers' offense had MINUS 17 yards of offense on their first 3 drives in that game(!) Everything on offense basically went away after the first quarter...there were stalled drives, poor play calling, turnovers, you name it and it happened from the 2nd quarter deep into the 4th quarter... The Packers' defense played pretty well, but they did give up a few big plays: Long rushing TD to Dalvin Cook on a really poor tackling angle taken by Darnell Savage Long TD pass to Stephon Diggs, the ball pro...

APP #55 - The Bears Still Suck

EThe Bears had quite a hyped-up offseason and managed to only put up 3 points(!) against what, at first glance, appears to be an actual, competent NFL defense by the Packers! Jeremy had a great recap HERE. The Packers' offense on the other hand, needs A LOT of work - their first three drives netted a grand total of NEGATIVE 17 yards or something. Let's face it - this game (for the offense) was basically the 5th pre-season game. Aaron Rodgers looked pretty darn average for most of the game, his mechanics and footwork are still really suspect for whatever reason... The collective offensive line, save for Brian Bulaga, had a rough night against the formidable Bears defensive front. Some of this is to be expected, but Layne Taylor got lit up all night and even David Bhaktiari gave up a few pressures. Aaron Jones was kept in check all night - he ran for maybe 30 yards the whole game Davante Adams was, at times, TRIPLE COVERED by the Bears. Somebody else has got to get open outside of Adam...

EIt's Bears Week! The roster is basically set going into the first game - thoughts on the final cutdown, waiver wire pick-ups, etc? Deshone Kizer was cut in favor of Tim Boyle - they are only carrying 2 QBs into the season Darrius Shepherd made the roster over Allen Lazard Packers traded for ILBDarrius Shepherd from the Giants! Sam Ficken got cut so the Packers are going with Mason Crosby at Kicker J'mon Moore (WR) a 2nd-year draft pick got cut Rookie TE Jace Sternberger was placed on IR today Matt Lefleur is getting tired of the media narrative about giving Rodgers the ability to audible at the line in the new offensive system. He had a little "dust-up" with the local beat reporter crew today. Vegas odds are being pretty generous to the Packers (probably due to Aaron Rodgers), but the Bears are picked to win this game
