PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Short Memories

Rodgers and Suh

It’s funny how people forget things.  Negativity reigns this weekend as Vegas is giving the Packers points, fans are predicting a loss, and all of a sudden the Packers defense isn’t going to be able to stop anything the Lions do.  Whatever issues that I have with Brett Favre, he nailed it this week.

“In the NFC North, the Packers own it. And they’ll continue to own it until someone takes it from them.”

These Lions? These Lions that went 7-9 last year basically fully healthy? These Lions that are 1-5 in their last 6 against Green Bay and 0-5 if you only count games in which Rodgers plays in?  These Lions are going to take the division away from them? I would understand if the Packers had some major injury or the Lions had been really impressive this season but neither of those things is reality.  The Lions just got blown out by the Panthers.  They’re the team that’s really beat up.  They look like the same old Lions.

I sure hope you aren’t worried about the Packers on the road in a dome.  That’s been a recipe for success for a long, long time, especially offensively.  Everybody always wants a different narrative.  Everyone wants to bury the Packers so they don’t win the division for the 4th year in a row.  People want something different to happen because it’s more interesting.  Unfortunately for those people 3 of the top 5 corners and the best pass rusher on the Lions are banged up and Aaron Rodgers is licking his chops.

Is it Time for the Packers to Scrap the 4-3?

mark mayfield datone jones

It was pretty clear to me when things turned around defensively for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.  When Dom Capers decided to move back into his more traditional 3 man fronts the Packers were able to slow the Jets down.  After allowing 21 points on the first 3 drives and giving everyone in Green Bay a heart attack Capers went back to old reliable and it worked.  The question now is whether or not to abandon the 4-3 concepts that the team installed this offseason or to continue and try work out the kinks.

The biggest problem that I have had with the with the 4-3 principles are the secrecy associated with them.  The Packers never unveiled their “quad” defense until the Seahawks game and for the first 5 quarters of the season it was abysmal.  They didn’t practice it in front of the fans in training camp.  They didn’t run it in the preseason.  I honestly don’t even know when they installed it.

Because of this secrecy, I am unable to tell if the 4-3 scheme doesn’t work because we don’t have the proper personnel or the 4-3 scheme doesn’t work because no one is comfortable with it.  I do know that the first 2 games of the season is not probably the time to just whip something out and see if it works.  I saw a lot of Clay Matthews playing off the line of scrimmage which I didn’t love.  I saw Letroy Guion being mauled all over the field, which was also less than ideal.  I love the way that the personnel would have fit in a 4-3 under scheme right up until we lost BJ Raji and decided to replace him with the Vikings’ really bad 4-3 NT.

Behind Enemy Lines with Scott Salmon of Gang Green Nation

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

In the Week 2 edition of Behind Enemy Lines, Amanda and Chris talk offensive line woes, chat about whether or not the Green Bay Packers were scared of Richard Sherman, discuss the rookies’ impact so far, and say what they want to see different against the New York Jets. The duo then welcomes in Scott Salmon, the managing editor of the Jets blog Gang Green Nation, to discuss whether or not Jets faithful think Rex Ryan is the man for the job, talk about the development of Geno Smith, whether Eric Decker was worth the money, how the Green Bay o-line may stack up against the New York front seven and give a quick preview of the rest of the AFC East.

Ol’ Bag of Donuts has recovered from last week’s Green Bay Packers disaster in Seattle to break down this week’s game against the New York Jets.

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Fire and Brimstone

Aaron Rodgers Packers

For most of the Favre/Rodgers era the Green Bay Packers have played a prominent game to begin the season.  They have played in the opening Thursday Night game twice.  They have opened against the 49ers twice in the past 3 years. They used to open up against the Eagles during their prime.  Make no bones about it, the Packers are a premium brand in this NFL and the league loves to showcase them during opening weekend.  This should make you proud to be a Packers fan.

That’s all well and good, but sometimes it feels like it would be better if the Packers were allowed to get their feet wet a little bit more.  The people around Packer Nation get a little bit irritable when their team takes a nose dive against a good team in week 1.  This is understandable.  There is a belief that ever since the Packers fell to the Giants in the 2011 playoff game, they have allowed the rest of the NFC to pass them by.  Continuously losing to the Seahawks and 49ers, the two teams at the top of the conference, is not ideal.  What it does, though (and this drives me nuts), is make people forget how good the Green Bay Packers are.
