They also talk about how comfortable they are with the Pack’s offense going forward, the amazing powers of Aaron Ripkowski, and what to expect next week against the Texans. All that and probably less on this week’s Titletown Sound!

It’s Time for the Packers to Utilize Christine Michael

On Monday night the Green Bay Packers offense awoke from its slumber and dropped 27 points on a pretty decent Philadelphia Eagles defense. While Aaron Rodgers had his best game of the season and receivers like Davante Adams are starting to carve up opposing secondaries, the Packers offense is still decidedly one-sided. As good as Rodgers is, if the Packers want to continue their playoff push through December, they’re going to have to find some kind of ground attack.

The Packers just haven’t been the same since the dual-injuries of Eddie Lacy and James Starks. In the last three weeks, the Packers have averaged just 76.6 rushing yards per game. Aaron Rodgers has accounted for nearly 38% of those yards. If you subtract those numbers from Green Bay’s totals, the Packers’ running backs (including Ty Montgomery) are averaging just 47 rushing yards per game. That’s atrocious.

When James Starks returned from his injury three weeks ago in Tennessee, he actually looked fairly good in limited carries. While the Packers got behind big time too early to really lean on Starks, he was able to pick up 33 yards on 7 carries, good enough for 4.7 yards per carry. Since then, however, Starks’ numbers have dropped. On 9 carries in Washington he picked up only 25 yards (2.8 yards per carry). On Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles, Starks ran with the ball 17 times but could pick up only 41 yards (2.4 yards per carry).

Cheesehead Radio: Into The Tent with Bart Winkler

 

What exactly is in that sideline tent? A training table? A bathroom, A secret chamber full of gamma rays? Whatever Aaron Rodgers found in that tent, he helped the Green Bay Packers find their footing, notching a victory over the Eagles on the road, ending a four-game losing streak that had Packer Nation collectively ready to jump off the bandwagon.

But with that win, the Packers appear poised to make good on Rodgers’ prediction that they will run the table and make the playoffs this year. With one game out of six already in the win column, could the Packers do the impossible, and turn the entire season around?

There are few people able to answer that question, but one guy who will do his best is none other than our special guest Bart Winkler, the better half of Chuck & Winkler  Weekday Mornings on Green Bay’s .

Packers need to build momentum

Hey, would you look at that. The Packers won. Not only did they win, they didn’t get in their own way most of the time. I’ll be honest. I fully expected them to lose this past Monday in Philadelphia. Instead, rumors of their demise is greatly exaggerated. While one win does not a winning streak make, its still better than the alternative. And definitely better than a kick in the head.

No, they didn’t just beat the Vikings. And this wasn’t a win against the Seahawks. But no one broke in half. Rodgers’ hamstring doesn’t appear to sound all that bad (famous last words, I know.) And the defense didn’t completely fall apart. Oh, and Schum actually kicked one farther than my fifth grader.

So where do they go from here? The have to capitalize on the strides made this past week and look forward, not backwards. (Sometimes easier said than done.)

Aaron Rodgers needs to be healthy looking beyond this week.

Packers Therapy #287: Aaron Pitches a Tent in Philly

It sure is nice to win, especially after losing four in a row. But Chris and Dave are staying in their shoes about the Packers win over the Eagles. The guys aren’t sure Green Bay fans can take much away from the victory. Enjoy it, for sure. But does the good play carry forward? The fellas are skeptical.

——————-

Posting its first show in 2005, Packers Therapy is the longest-running Packers podcast on the Internet. Hosts Chris and Dave began the show as a way of capturing the spirited chats the two co-workers had about the team around the office. The two have no pretense about being experts: they are just two opinionated shareholders who love the team, follow it closely, but don’t always see the Packers fortunes eye to eye.

The guys encourage comments and questions via their Twitter feed @PackersTherapy and read and respond to as many as they can during each show. Or you can sent them an email to packerstherapy at packerstalk.com

Packers Therapy is a part of the Packers Talk, family of podcasts, serving up enough weekly podcasts to satisfy the most fervent of Packer fans. Follow Packers Talk on TwitterFacebook, and subscribe over at iTunes.

Breaking Down Green Bay vs Philadelphia

The Packers finally got back in the win column. While some writers are blathering on about replacing Mike McCarthy (me!), the Packer coaching staff put together a winning formula for this week. Here’s a breakdown of my thoughts on the game:

The Good

Aaron Rodgers looked like the best Quarterback in football. Rodgers has quietly been brilliant over the last month. If the Packers defense had done its part, the Packers would be in a tighter race with the Lions and Vikings, and Rodgers would be in the MVP conversation.

Davante Adams looked great. While Jordy continues to struggle to regain his explosiveness, Adams has become Rodgers go-to guy. He showed explosiveness and crisp route running last night. Adams always had a knack for making the spectacular play (and he certainly did that), but he’s been much more consistent on making the routine ones lately.

Mike McCarthy had a great gameplan. The short passing game is back! The Packers threw quick outs, rubs, and slants, and consistently let their receivers catch and run. In turn, that set up the deep passing game. My hope is this game planning continues because if teams have to prepare for the short game, deep passes are finally going to open up.
