Early Bird Breakdown Week 11: Philadelphia Eagles @ Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers vs. Philadelphia Eagles.

Early Bird Breakdown Week 11: Philadelphia Eagles @ Green Bay Packers


Hello all! Welcome to another Early Bird Breakdown! Let’s begin with the recap:

The Recap:

Last week the Green Bay Packers absolutely destroyed the Chicago Bears in primetime on Sunday Night Football. Aaron Rodgers tied an NFL record for six passing touchdowns in one half. They hit Chicago with a 42-0  first half. George Halas was rolling around so much in his grave, they could have tapped him for a new green energy source.

Jordy Nelson wide open against the Bears, the Bears looked lethargic all game

The defense looked good, albeit against a poor opponent. Clay Matthews brought a playmaking ability to the middle line backer position that the Packers have sorely lacked. As for the Eagles, they also played a night game last week, their’s on Monday Night Football. They blew out the Carolina Panthers 45-21 to move to 7-2 overall. The defense and special teams were what carried them to the victory, scoring three touchdowns combined. Coupled with a great performance from backup Mark Sanchez, the Eagles coasted very easily just like the Packers.

The Breakdown:
Packers’ Offense vs. Eagles’ Defense:
The Eagle’s game plan this season has been to load the box and attempt to take away the run, forcing teams to become one dimensional and throw into a ball hawking secondary. The Packers offensively this season have already become mostly one-dimensional anyway, with Lacy eclipsing 14 carries only once this season. The way the Eagles have to take the run away from teams normally is to do so with extra defenders, as they give up 115.2 yards per game on the ground, only 19th in the league. They are 22
nd against the pass giving up 251.7 yards per game.

Behind Enemy lines podcast on Packers Talk Radio Network. Amanda Lawson &

Amanda and Chris start by breaking down Packers-Bears, asking if it’s the best Aaron Rodgers has ever played. They then shift to whether or not Green Bay has a must-win game against Philadelphia this weekend, and what the game means in terms of winning the division or making the playoffs via wildcard. They then welcome in Brandon Gowton from the Eagles blog Bleeding Green Nation to talk about how legit Mark Sanchez’s game against the Panthers really was. They then talk about what a healthy offensive line might mean for LeSean McCoy, touch on the emergence of Jordan Matthews, and look at the playoff landscape for the NFC as a while.

Behind Enemy Lines is brought to you by hosts, Amanda Lawson and Chris Callaway. Read Amanda’s work over a CheeseSportsLife and Chris’s musings at Midwest Sports Fans.

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Prove It

Eddie+Lacy+Philadelphia+Eagles+v+Green+Bay+eSOjO-6KJ9kl (1)

The Packers haven’t beaten anybody.  That’s something that you’ll hear on a regular basis.  I’d tend to disagree.  I think that the Dolphins are a couple plays away from being 8-2 and beating them on the road was a heck of a win.  With that said, it’s true.  The combined record of the teams Green Bay has beaten is 18-29-1.  That’s not great.  There is no guarantee that Green Bay has even beaten a playoff team yet.  Miami appears to be on the outside looking in at the AFC playoffs, and it would take a pretty serious collapse from the Saints for the Panthers to make the postseason in the NFC.  I would say that the best 3 teams the Packers have played have all been faced on the road, and all 3 times Green Bay has faltered.

This Sunday is a chance to right all of those wrongs.  The Philadelphia Eagles come flying in (see what I did there?) at 7-2, leading the NFC East.  According to Football Outsiders, there’s an 85.9% chance that Philadelphia qualifies for this year’s postseason.  This is a good test for the Packers and this time it comes at home.  Green bay is 4-0 at Lambeau Field and just 2-3 in road contests.  The team is averaging a staggering 41.5 points per game on their home turf.  Philadelphia comes into town with a competent defense, but an offense that is largely overrated because of head coach Chip Kelly’s reputation.

Packers Therapy Podcast

Chris and Dave are late this week. No, not dead. Just late posting their show to the site.

Packers Offensive Line Must Hold Up Against Eagles

OT's

The key to the Green Bay Packers getting their first signature win of the 2014 season over the Philadelphia Eagles is their offensive line slowing the Philly pass rush.

The Eagles do not have a good defense. They rank 21st in the NFL giving up 366 yards per game and 12th in points giving up 22 points per game. Their point total is down because of turnovers created, but that will be every tough to accomplish against Aaron Rodgers at home.

They are extremely vulnerable in the back end. Safety Malcolm Jenkins is their only really good player back there, and the Eagles have given up the second most plays of 20 yards or more in the NFL. On the flip side, the Packers’ offense is second in producing plays of 20 yards or more. Rodgers is often times holding the ball longer to get those deep plays down the field.

The one good thing about the Philadelphia defense is their pass rush. They rank second in the NFL in sacks and have a great pair of outside linebackers in Connor Barwin (10.5 sacks) and Trent Cole (4.5 sacks).Mychal Kendricks also has great athleticism to rush from the inside linebacker spot. Bryan Bulaga and David Bakhtiari have struggled at times this season with some of the top pass rushers they have faced.

That time I was sexually harassed at a Packers game

packers fans

I was going to write about the Packers steamrolling the Bears this past weekend, but what else is there to say? Garbage time officially started at the beginning of the second half, and it would have been a mercy move had the players given kids from De Pere, Bayport and Ashwaubenon a turn at taking on the Bears at that point.

Instead, I’m going to use this forum to share a personal experience from that night and point out that it is the first time that I did not feel at ease at Lambeau Field. At halftime, while the Packers were likely laughing it up in the locker room, I was sexually harassed by a fellow Packers fan I had never met.

This topic has been in the media quite a lot lately. Most people are familiar with the woman who videoed herself walking around New York while receiving 108 lewd catcalls while, well, just walking around New York. And my own local paper just ran Los Angeles Times’ Meghan Daum’s outstanding editorial just this past weekend about how we as a society have become so desensitized to such behavior that we just silently accept it, often blaming the woman for “asking for it.”

But let me get one thing straight–I wasn’t asking for it, and no one could conceivably blame the way I was dressed. Winter coat with an extra layers underneath and a pair of jeans, I wasn’t exactly dressed in a come hither manner.
