Game Predictions: Packers at Saints

packers saints

C.D. Angeli (@TundraVision): The prevailing wisdom seems to predicts some sort of wild and wolly shootout in the Superdome. Many are predicting a big Packer offensive score to outmatch Drew Brees and Co. While I predict a Packer victory, I have a hard time believing that the Packers can put together two massive offensive outputs two weeks in a row. Laws of averages, if nothing else. Look for a well-fought game against a dome team at home that just won’t have enough in the tank to beat Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson.

Packers 24 Saints 17

Jacob Westendorf (@JacobWestendorf):

There’s a lot of talk about how the Packers should be worried going into the Superdome. While I do buy somewhat into an atmosphere helping out a team, that doesn’t matter as much if the team is not good. The Saints have won both games at home this season, but easily could have lost both. This will be a big test for a Packers defense that somehow has become underrated despite being ranked 6th in the league in pass yards per game. Drew Brees is always a tough customer, but the Saints defense is bad and will have many holes for Aaron Rodgers and his receivers to exploit. The Packers have been red hot since Rodgers told the fans to relax, and I expect the offense to continue to roll, and the defense to make enough plays to win the Sunday night showdown between two of the game’s premier quarterbacks.

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Dazed and Confused

Aaron+Rodgers+Green+Bay+Packers+v+New+Orleans+_J6RUVxVnp9l

I cannot remember the last time I was this conflicted about predicting the result of a football game.  Spoiler alert, I’m going to pick the Saints to win on Sunday.  I can’t really tell you why I’m going to do this but I promise you, I am going to do this.  Aaron Rodgers is now clearly better than Drew Brees.  I’m not sure if it’s because Brees is at least a little washed up or if it’s just because Rodgers is so good but the difference is clear.  Offensively the Packers are better.  Defensively the Packers are clearly better.  The New Orleans Saints rank 32nd in Defensive DVOA (FootballOutsiders).  There isn’t a 33rd team in the National Football League.

So why? Why am I picking against the Packers, quite possibly the NFC’s hottest team? A building.  I’m picking against the Packers because of the Superdome.  This is a scary game.  If the Packers go into New Orleans and win on Sunday night I have to believe in this team 100%.  YOU have to believe in this team 100%.  I know that sounds nuts because of the Saints’ record but it’s true.

Barring injuries that occur in the Saints game, the Packers should come back from the bye week completely healthy.  All of their currently injured players, PLUS JC Tretter all appear healthy enough to possibly play against New Orleans.  I can’t honestly imagine that any of them would be sidelined after a bye week.  All hands on deck is not something that the Packers have been able to say in week 10 in a very long time.

It’s time to trust the Packers’ defense

haha

I trust Dom Capers.

There, I said it out loud. No take-backs and all that, right? Sure it was a little shaky there in the first few weeks, and I was nodding along with demands for a regime change. What can I say? I’m fickle and impatient.

But wasn’t Cam Newton on his way to being crowned one of the next big things? A mobile QB that was a dangerous threat outside the pocket?

Well he looked more like Christian Ponder than his contemporaries Kaepernick and Wilson. The Packers did a great job shutting down a mobile quarterback and finally decoded the read option that had been their Kryptonite for so long. Sure the Panthers are a shadow of the team they were a year ago, but it’s the same QB that would gash teams on the ground.

And Cam ran for diddly. What yards he got were gained scrambling for his life.

That type of resounding victory is exactly the confidence booster this team needed. They aren’t just good shutting down a pocket passer like they consistently are in the NFC North. They turned the page and were effective in neutralizing the new generation of dual threat quarterbacks.

While people were calling for Capers’ head (yes, I was one of them. I kind of apologized above, remember?) there were others pointing out it wasn’t a scheme issue, but rather a personnel issue.  This is definitely not the unstoppable defense that the Packers fronted in 2010, but it appears to be the best one since.

Packers’ 2014 Draft Class Paying Early Dividends

hhcd21

As I sat in the Lambeau Field bleachers and watched the Panthers game, I couldn’t help but to think of how well the 2014 draft class is panning out.  Now there are certainly disappointments.  It’s possible (maybe even likely) that Khyri Thornton Carl Bradford and Demetri Goodson can’t play.  Jared Abbrederis was lost for the season with an ACL injury.  Other than that though, things look great.

I know that kind of sounds like “other than that, Mrs. Lincoln how was the play?” but it isn’t.  It’s possible that one of those 3 defenders will turn into a decent rotational piece.  Josh Boyd looked just as lost as Thornton early on in his career and he’s a perfectly capable fill-in on the defensive line.  Obviously if you take a defensive linemen in the top 100 you’d prefer he not be a fill-in but it happens.  Goodson was always going to be a project and Bradford is going through a position change a la Jamari Lattimore.

This much I do know.  The Packers have found 3 rock solid starters, possibly a 4th starter and another player that will contribute in a positive way.  I don’t care how many draft picks you have, if you come away with a haul like that it was a success.  The fact that Green Bay didn’t have drafts with that success rate in 2011 and 2012 largely attributes to the lack of playoff success after the 15-1 season.
