Behind Enemy Lines with Joe Person from the Charlotte Observer

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

Amanda and Chris start the Week 7 edition of the podcast with a discussion of Aaron Rodgers’ calculated risk taking and the running back time share before asking the question of if there is another wide receiver in the league you’d rather have than Jordy Nelson. (Hint: probably not). The pair then welcome in Joe Person from the Charlotte Observer to talk about the Green Bay Packers’ upcoming opponent, the Carolina Panthers. They ask Joe about tying Cincy in Week 6, Cam Newton’s running ability, and the health of rookie wideout Kelvin Benjamin before Joe breaks down why the Panthers’ defense isn’t the same as it was in 2013.

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: Coming Home

Aaron+Rodgers+Carolina+Panthers+v+Green+Bay+Cvpk90iIV3El

I swear it seems like the Packers are never playing at Lambeau Field on Sundays.  This sucks because honestly there is no better Sunday than one spent at Lambeau Field and the surrounding area.  Honestly it feels that way because it’s accurate.  The Packers have played one home game on a Sunday so far.  The team has 10 games left and six of those are at home.  Green Bay has already played 4 of their 8 road games this season and has been able to split those contests.  This leaves a very inviting schedule in which the packers have a 6/4 home-road split in their last 10 games with 2 of those road games (Min, TB) being played against teams in the league’s bottom 5.

There’s no excitement for a displaced member of Packer Nation like an upcoming pilgrimage to Lambeau Field.  It takes about 7 1/2 hours to get from my driveway to the promised land of Green Bay, WI.  It’s the shortest 7 1/2 hours there is.  The first time that we made the trip the anticipation was high, never having seen the field before.  Having experienced Packers Gamedays over and over has done nothing to temper the excitement.  It’s still the most wonderful place on earth.

Packers QB puts game on his back

fake spike

By now we’ve all seen Aaron Rodgers’ fake spike as the seconds ticked down in Miami. While he is hardly willing to share his secrets with fans (and eavesdropping opponents), Rodgers revealed very little when he told Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee, “I yelled clock—which means spike—but I didn’t spike it and threw it to Davante.”

He also denied that Adams was in on the rouse either. While the rookie receiver has gone on the record stating that Rodgers had shot him “a look,” that may or may not have been the case.

The rest, they say, has become a part of Packers’ lore.

Needless to say, Aaron Rodgers took a huge risk by going rogue and taking matters into his own hands and the dividend  paid off exponentially. And in that moment, the Packers’ QB demonstrated an indisputable and intangible quality that some foolhardily still claim he lacks: leadership.

Rodgers had only a few fleeting seconds to gauge the defense as it set up against predictable spike to stop the clock. No huddle, and the team prepared for the spike like they had practiced countless times. Buy a few seconds and get one, maybe two chances at the end zone.

As the other ten lined up, Rodgers had the guts to think, “I have an idea, and we’re going  to win.”

How is Davante Adams Coming Along?

davante-adams-cortland-finnegan-nfl-green-bay-packers-miami-dolphins-590x900

Whether it’s fair or not (and it’s probably not) Davante Adams is going to be constantly compared to other Packers wide receivers selected in the top 100 picks.  Ted Thompson has made a pretty solid career out of cultivating wide receivers in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.  Because of this ability, he has never had to spend a 1st round selection on a weapon for Aaron Rodgers.  Greg Jennings, James Jones, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and now Davante Adams were all drafted in the second round or later.

If you’ve been reading my work for long enough you know that there are certain positions where a lot should be expected of a player in his first year, and there are certain positions where that is not the case.  You can expect a lot from linebackers, running backs and interior offensive lineman.  Pass rushers, defensive linemen and specifically in the case I’m referring to wide receivers should not have much expected of them in year one.

While this exercise might be futile and is certainly of a small sample size I’d like to take a look at the first 6 games of the careers of the other highly drafted wide receivers during Ted Thompson’s tenure:

Greg Jennings- drafted 52nd overall- 2006
21 REC 364 YDs 3 TDs

James Jones- drafted 78th overall- 2007
26 REC 400 YDs 2 TDs

Jordy Nelson- drafted 36th overall- 2008
16 REC 177 YDs 1 TD
