After Further Review: Fundamental Breakdown

In After Further Review’s second episode, Ross and Zach break down just exactly what went wrong on Sunday night in Minnesota and how the Packers could possibly rebound from that despicable performance against Detroit.

An in-depth look into Aaron Rodgers and his fundamentals – or lack thereof, as well as how well the defensive front has performed in their two debut games as a cohesive unit.

The two hosts look ahead to Detroit and give their predictions. Will the Packers bounce back? Or are they doomed to the same offensive failures they suffered the season prior?

Pulse of the Pack: U.S. Bank Stadium Pays No Dividends

The Packers lackluster offense finally caught up with them as they fell to the Minnesota Vikings 17-14.  The offense was sporadic at best with Aaron Rodgers front and center of the criticism.  He fumbled three times and threw an interception in the loss and left us all with more questions than answers.  What is Rodgers’ issue and does some of the blame fall on Mike McCarthy?  Speaking of McCarthy, is his play calling an issue?  Were you OK with the 4th down run that failed?

Many say the Packers offense predictable and they’re daring teams to stop them but. . . they are getting stopped so what gives?  Is it time to accept a new normal from Rodgers?  Can the defense continue to carry this team?  Who stood out on the good and bad side of things for the Packers on Sunday?  Jacob and Jason then take a look ahead to week three and the home opener against the Detroit Lions.  Plenty to discuss on Pulse of the Pack!

Packers Therapy #279: Packers Stank at US Bank

Chris and Dave are less than pleased about the sputtering Packers offense. The guys thought the defense played well enough to beat Minnesota on Sunday Night Football, but the offense looked like the second half of 2015. Dave’s concerned that this is a continuing trend; Chris isn’t as certain…yet. There are bouquets thrown at the pass rushers and run stuffers, while Aaron Rodgers gets a full autopsy from the boys.

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’ Offense Falters as Vikings Win 17-14

The Green Bay Packers were unable to sustain any sort of offense against the Minnesota defense, and the Vikings emerged with a 17-14 victory in the first regular season game at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The team looked off from the very first offensive play of the night. Aaron Rodgers connected with Davante Adams on Green Bay’s first play, but the wide receiver fumbled. The Packers were fortunate enough that Randall Cobb immediately got the ball back, but it set the tone for an underwhelming and poor offensive performance.

The Green Bay defense came to play against Adrian Peterson, and quickly forced a Vikings punt on their second drive that was blocked by Ty Montgomery. Working with excellent field position, Rodgers took the offense 52 yards and capped off the drive by finding Jordy Nelson for the receiver’s second touchdown of the season.

But after that, the offense faltered for most of the remainder of the game. The Packers ended the day with just 263 yards, and the only other score came on a scramble by Rodgers midway through the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to three.

The defense forced a quick Vikings’ punt on the following drive to give Rodgers one more chance to win or tie. The Packers started marching, putting together a nine play drive, but Rodgers threw an interception—his second costly turnover of the night—to effectively seal the deal for Minnesota.

Early Bird Breakdown Week 2 – Packers @ Vikings

Early Bird Breakdown Week 2 – Packers @ Vikings

Hello and welcome back to week two of the regular season for the Packers and week two of the breakdown. Before we dive into the matchups, let’s look at last week’s recap.

The Recap:

Last week Green Bay played down in Jacksonville to kick off the season and they were able to squeak out a win 27-23. While Aaron Rodgers failed to throw for over 200 yards he was able to make the clutch plays and keep his day turnover free, which was the difference as Blake Bortles was able to throw for 320 yards but a costly interception lead to early points & the Packers defense did just enough to win the game.

The Breakdown:

Packers’ Offense vs Vikings’ Defense:

 

Last week, the Packers were only able to manage 199 yards through the air and 95 on the ground. Jacksonville may have improved their defensive talent, but not that much and that was the 24th ranked defense from a year ago. This week they face a Vikings team built on their defense and it will be much harder, especially as the Vikings will be opening a new stadium on Sunday Night Football and emotions will be running high. Minnesota’s defense is pretty balanced, but they are a tad softer vs the run than the pass. Eddie Lacy will have to get it going even more so than last week, likely needing to top 20 carries to create the balance in the offense needed to beat their divisional foe.
