    Green Bay Packers stuff Seattle Seahawks; move to 2-0

    in Sports

    The Seattle Seahawks had won three straight games but all of those wins were in Seattle. The venue on Sunday night was Lambeau Field, were the Seahawks have only won one time, in 1999. The Packers relied on key backups to come away with a 27-17 victory.  

    Eddie Lacy left the game, in the first quarter, with an ankle injury. James Starks took the ball 20 times and finished with 95 yards rushing.  The offensive line was missing Bryan Buluga, who had knee surgery on Saturday. Don Barclay made his first start since the 2013 playoffs and the offensive line provided protection and running lanes.  Aaron Rodgers was only sacked twice, and the Packers finished with 127 yards rushing. 

    Nate Palmer replaced the injured Sam Barrington at middle linebacker. The Packers defense held Marshawn Lynch to 41 yards on 15 carries, and could not get untracked.  The Packers were making initial contact in the backfield and gang tackling the powerful running back.  Russell Wilson lead the Seahawks in rushing with 71 yards, as the Packers struggled against the read option.  

    Two fourth quarter turnovers sealed the victory.  Special teams player Jayrone Elliott ceased his moment.  Elliott made a one handed interception on a pass inteded for Marshawn Lynch. The turnover led to a Mason Crosby field goal, and a 10 point lead.  As the Seahawks made one last surge, Elliott came up big again. He punched the ball out of Fred Jacksons grasp, and Micah Hyde recovered, with 22 seoconds left.

    Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks game preview

    in Sports

    In week one, the Green Bay Packers recovered an onside kick to secure the win against the Chicago Bears.  A sigh of relief came over Packer fans, because the last year in the NFC Championship Game, a poorly executed onside kick was the final straw, in a Seattle Seahawk comeback.  

    The last time the Packers and Seahawks met was in the NFC Championship Game, and the Packers controlled most of the game.  Depending on what team you cheer for, it was either an epic meltdown or a great comeback.  In either case, the Seahawks won the game and advanced to the Super Bowl.

    It is now 2015, and a new season.  The Packers still boost a high powered offense, while the Seahawks are now dealing with the effects of success.  The have lost some players via free agency, and their top offensive lineman in Max Unger, to trade.  One player that will not be on the field, Cam Chancellor.  He is a Seahawk, but has been holding out for a new contract.  His presence is missed on the field, and the defense struggled at times against the St. Louis Rams. The Rams beat the Seahawks, in overtime and were aided by a special teams touchdown.  

    The St. Louis Rams are still trying to figure out their running game, but they attacked areas that may have been filled by Chancellor.  Jared Cook, the Rams tight end, led the team with five catches for 85 yards and a touchdown. Would Chancellor have made a difference?  The Green Bay Packers have a serviceable tight end in Richard Rodgers and might be able to exploit the middle of the field. Eddie Lacy may not average five yards per carry, but can churn out some tough yards.

    Jimmy Graham was the biggest addition, and even though he scored a touchdown, he was not a huge factor.  That could change against a Packers defense that has struggled defending tight ends.  Sam Barrington is out for the year, so how will the Packers defend Graham?

    5-0 Green Bay Packers host the San Diego Chargers; NFL week 6 game preview

    in Sports

    The 2-3 San Diego Chargers travel to Lambeau Field to take on the 5-0 Green Bay Packers. San Diego lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers on the last play of the game on Monday night. The Packers defense pressured the St. Louis Rams and Nick Foles all afternoon enroute to their victory.

    Philip Rivers leads the league in passing yards with 1,613 yards. Many of those yards came without his favorite target Antonio Gates who was suspended for the first four weeks. The Chargers drafted Melvin Gordon in the first round to bolster their running game. To this point, Gordon is only averaging 54 yards per game and has fumbled twice. The biggest question mark is the offensive line. Five lineman are listed on the injury report and King Dunlap and Chris Hairiston did not practice. 

    The Packers defense ranks seventh in total yards allowed (316.4 yards per game) and second in sacks (20). Although the run defense statistically ranks 28th in the league, they have actually set the tone early in games. When you take away the 55 yard run that Todd Gurley had, he only averaged 3.6 yards per carry. They have won the point of attack and limited the running game early.

    Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings game preview

    in Sports

    This is only week 11, in the NFL, but the game between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings will go a long way to determine the NFC North Champion. The Vikings enter the game 7-2, while the Packers are 6-3. If the Vikings beat the Packers they will have a two game lead in the win column, and making the week 17 matchup more intriguing. 

    Minnesota has not allowed more than 21 points during their five game winning streak. Mike Zimmer came to Minnesota with a strong defensive background. He has implemented a scheme that has them ranked second in the NFL, in points allowed (17.1). Teams have had a hard time running the ball against the eigth ranked rush defense.  Evan talks about the sack stat being overrated, which could be the case with the Vikings. They rank 16th in the league with 21 sacks but have gotten enough pressure to be effective and rank 15th against the pass. Offensively, the Vikings will lean on Adrian Peterson who leads the league in rushing, with 961 yards. Peterson averages 21.7 carries per game. Teddy Bridgewater has been average at best, boosting and 84.6 quarterback rating, which actually ranks 34th among all NFL quarterbacks. 

    The Green Bay Packers are trying to figure out where the disconnect is on offense. During the three game losing streak; the Packers have only scored 17 first half points. The last two weeks have seen the offense come alive in the fourth quarter and tried to mount comebacks. Against the Carolina Panthers they fell yards short, and against the Detroit Lions they missed a two point conversion and a field goal. The Packers have abandoned the run game, and it will be no easy task getting it going against the Vikings. The offense line that was keeping Aaron Rodgers clean in the beginning of the season, have been dominated for three straight weeks. Finally, they need to get their playmakers into space and make plays.

    Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions game preview; Keys to the game

    in Sports

    The Green Bay Packers face the Detriot Lions at Lambeau Field, on Sunday. Both teams are in of a win for different reasons. The Packers started the season 6-0 and have dropped back to back games. Both losses came at the hands of undefeated teams. However, they did not look like a playoff team in either game being dominated on both sides of the ball. It took a sideline scuffle to fire up the Packers after being down by 20 points to mount a comeback that fell a few yards short. By dropping two games in a row, they have fallen back to the pack and are now tied with the Minnesota Vikings for first place. 

    The Detroit Lions have started the season 1-7 and have dropped two games in a row. With Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson,  Golden Tate, and the addition of Ameer Abdullah the offense was suppose to put up points. After 8 games they have only scored 149 points. San Francisco is the only team that has scored fewer points (126).  Ndamukong Suh left for Miami, so the Lions tried to fill the void with Haloti Ngata. A defense that was once feared in the NFC North has become average at best.  To make matters worse, the Detroit Lions have not won in Green Bay since December 15, 1991.

    No more excuses, the Green Bay Packers lack "IT" after dropping three in a row

    in Sports

    After starting the season 6-0, the Green Bay Packers have dropped three in a row. At 6-3 they now find themselves in second place looking up at the Minnesota Vikings. Sunday was suppose to be the game that Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense got back on track. The Detroit Lions entered the game 1-7 and struggling on both sides of the ball. 

    When the Packers dropped games to the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers, the argument was made that they played against two of the best defensive units, in the NFL. During both games, the offense was exposed because they could not run the ball, protect Rodgers, or get seperation at the receiver position. On defense, the front seven was unable to warrant any pressure on Peyton Manning or Cam Newton. Again, the excuse was made they played against very good offense lines. The Packers received a pass because both teams were undefeated. 

    No more excuses for the Packers after losing to the Detroit Lions 18-16. Once again, the Packers offense sputtered in the first half, scoring three points. They have only scored 17 points in the first half, of the last three games. The Packers failed to complete comebacks in the last two games. Rodgers was intercepted against Carolina, and a two-point conversion was broken up in the end zone against the Lions. After recovering an onside kick, Mason Crosy miss hit a 52 yard field goal.

    From top to bottom, offense to defense to special teams this team lacks "IT". A confident 6-0 team has turned into a deer in headlight team at 6-3. They lack continuity on offense. The offense line can't hold run blocks or protect Rodgers. Rodgers dances around when he has time. Running backs are being bottled up at or near the line of scrimmage. The defense can't get off the field when it matters, and the special teams gave up a big play that swayed momentum.

    You can analyze every play, but it is evident the Packers just don't have it.

    Carolina Panthers put perfect record on the line against the Green Bay Packers

    in Sports

    The Carolina Panthers are one of four undefeated teams entering week nine in the NFL season. The Green Bay Packers were dominated on national television by the Denver Broncos, last Sunday. The loss was the first for the Packers as they travel to Carolina. They only passed for 77 yards and rushed for 90; however 31 of those yards came from the legs of Aaron Rodgers. The Bronco offense carved up the Packers defense for 500 yards. 

    After being punched in the face, the Packers face a tough test in Carolina. The Panthers rank ninth in yards allowed (342.6) and seventh in points allowed (19.4). Evan will tell you that the sack statistic is over-rated, and that could be the case for the Panthers. Although tied for eigth, in the league with 20 sacks it seems like there is always a Panther pressuring a quarterback. Rodgers was harrassed from the start, in Denver, and the offensive line needs to play better. Mike McCarthy and Tom Clements will have to find a game plan that will get the receivers into space.

    The Packers defense looked confused at times and need to concentrate on some fundamental defense. They have struggled against the zone read, and Cam Newton is a mamouth of man when he runs. In one week, the defense will need to figure out how to play discipline defense and realize their gap responsibility. The Packers defense is aggressive and have allowed other teams to look good when they miss tackles. The Panthers lost Kelvin Benjamin in the preseason and their leading receiver is tight end Greg Olsen (33 receptions, 518 yards, 4 touchdowns). Ted Ginn, Jr. is the Panthers leading receiver with 20 receptions. In comparision, the Packers have three receivers with more receptions. The Panthers will try to establish the running game with James Stewart, who has rushed for 505 yards and three touchdowns.
