PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: A Little Bit of Everthing

JayRone

We’re gonna jump around a little bit on this week’s edition of FOOTBALL FRIDAY.  The first thing that I’m going to do is give my 3 up and 3 down for last night’s final preseason game, which was a resounding win by the Packers over the Chiefs.  The Packers are a mere 6 days away from their season opening showdown with Seattle (I can’t believe I just wrote that) and the excitement is building.  After breaking down last night’s game briefly I’m going to offer my final 53-man roster prediction before any of the cuts are announced.

 

 

3 up:

1. The Backup QBs- Flynn and Tolzien both had QB ratings over 108 and both threw for 2 TDs.  As player after player that would have made the 53 go down with injury, it becomes more and more clear that the Packers are going to keep both of these players.  In years past, Ted Thompson has rightfully valued that 53rd spot on the roster, but this season it’s too important to keep both of these players around.

2.  Jeff Janis- This kid is the real deal.  I had a 4th round grade on Janis going into the draft.  The thing about that is I thought that he was either going to be a bust or that he was going to give the return of a 1st or 2nd round pick with basically no in-between.  Janis has elite physical skills and was a terror on offense and on special teams.  As he grows in the system and becomes more consistent he has a chance to be a star in this league.

The Packers with the Most to Win and Lose in the Final Preseason Game

Scott Tolzien Packers

 

The regular season is almost upon us, but there is still one more game for players who are on the fringe of making the Packers roster to make one last impression.

Here are the players and the positions battles to keep an eye on when the Chiefs visit the Packers.

Quarterbacks

The most interesting and most intently watched battle will undoubtedly be between quarterbacks Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn. It has been pretty obvious to anyone who has watched the Packers during preseason that Tolzien has outplayed Flynn through the first 3 games.  However, Flynn’s game experience and knowledge of the Packer offense might be enough to keep him locked in as the Packers backup quarterback, at least for this season.

No matter what happens Thursday, with Flynn signed to just a 1 year contract I can’t see the Packers letting Tolzien go and leaving them vulnerable at the backup quarterback spot again next season.  However, if Tolzien looks good again and Flynn continues to struggle, the Packers could opt to keep Tolzien and waive Flynn, but I still think the most likely scenario is that the Packers keep 3 quarterbacks on their roster this season.

Secondary

The Packers secondary is loaded with talent at both at corner, and somewhat surprisingly, safety.

From the Benches: Final Cuts

From the Benches Packers Podcast

The From The Benches team is back with a lot of new things to talk about. The show begins with a lengthy news segment leading off with the impact of the injuries to BJ Raji and JC Tretter. Following that, the guys discuss what has encouraged them, and what has them concerned from the Packers last two preseason games ( with a lot of praise for the first team offense).

The boys go Behind the Bench this week with a discussion on the backup quarterback debate, with questions of whether they should keep 3 QB’s, and who the backup QB should be.

The guys then discuss the plight of Carl Bradford, and whether or not he will make the team before previewing the final preseason game. Jacob wraps up the show discussing backup QB’s in the show’s signature segment “You’re going to want to cut that.”

Why it isn’t crazy for the Packers to keep 3 quarterbacks

Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien

With Aaron Rodgers sitting out the Packers’ last preseason game tomorrow against the Chiefs, Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien have been alternating time with the first team offense. On days Flynn gets the reps, the blogosphere declares the Packers have selected him to fill the QB2 shoes. The same can be said on days Tolzien gets the nod.

By this time last year, the Packer were already starting the never ending turnstile of revolving back-ups. Graham Harrell had already been shown the door, and in the first few days of last September Rodgers was the only QB on the roster while both BJ Coleman and Vince Young were cut loose and Seneca Wallace had yet to be signed.

The same cannot be said this year. The Packers have been reluctant to pare down that list aside from asking fourth string Chase Retting to turn in his iPad. The organization itself has been nothing short of cryptic and has been reluctant to name a QB. There are arguments on both sides to name Flynn or Tolzien the understudy quarterback.

For many years the Packers have held to a strict formula: the strongest candidate becomes the insurance policy if Rodgers should go down. The greener one is sent to the practice squad to grow and develop.
