    Green Bay Packers report card 2015 - Linebackers

    in Sports

    The Green Bay Packers had a defense that allowed some yards but found a way to create turnovers and keep opponents out of the end zone. Unfortunately, this Packers defense will be remembered for the breakdown in overtime against Arizona, in the NFC Divisional playoff round. That breakdown led to a first and goal and eventual touchdown by Larry Fitzgerald. 


    Statistically, the Packers finished 15th in total yards and 12th in points allowed. Julius Peppers found enough gas to have another productive year leading the Packers with 10.5 sacks. As a unit, the Packers tied for seventh in sacks with 43. Clay Matthews was asked to man the middle of the defensive, and still produced 6.5 sacks. Middle linebacker became and issue once again when Sam Barrington went down with injury. Jake Ryan, a fourth round pick, worked his way into the starting lineup.

    Green Bay Packers report card 2015 - Defensive Line

    in Sports

    The Green Bay Packers defense failed when it mattered most. While the offense struggled to find an indenity and put points on the board, the defense did all they could to keep the Packers in games. They finished the season ranked 12th in points allowed, and 15th in yards allowed. 


    When an outsider looks at the 119 rushing yards allowed per game they could assume that the defensive line was ineffective. The Packers faired well against some of the top running backs in the league. During the 6-0 and start, the defense was winning at the point of attack and eliminating the opponents running game. 


    The Packers will have a decision to make regarding the defensive line. B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion are both free agents. Guion had some off the field issues that could reduce the number the teams interested. Raji may generate some interest on the open market and may have played his last down in Green Bay.

    Green Bay Packers report card 2015 - Quarterbacks and Running Backs

    in Sports

    The Green Bay Packers were one of the pre-season favorites to be playing in Super Bowl 50. Jordy Nelson was injured during a pre-season game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, that did not stop the Packers from jumping out ot 6-0 start going into their bye week. Even though they were not playing their best football, the optimism was high that the offense would start clicking. The next two weeks would be against the eventual Super Bowl participants. The Denver Broncos exposed a way to rattle the Packers and their defense dominated the Packers enroute to a 29-10 victory. The following week, in Carolina, the Packers dug a hole and a comeback feel short as they lost 37-29. The rest of the season was a bumpy up and down road. A hail mary in Detroit may have saved a playoff berth. The Packers lost to the Minnesota Vikings, in week 17, ending their string of four consecutive division titles. 


    Aaron Rodgers is one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and had to get used to Tom Clements calling the plays early in the season. With Jordy Nelson done for the year, Rodgers had to find another go to guy. Early in the season James Jones was the target. As the season rolled on, no receiver stepped up and it looked like Rodgers lost confidence in his receivers. Rodgers finished below a 100 quarterback rating for the first time since time since 2008. That was his first year as a starter. 


    A good running game can help a passing game. The Packers had a hard time finding a consistent running game. Eddie Lacy surpassed 1,000 yards in his first two seasons. In 2015, Lacy carried the ball 59 times less than 2014 and finished with 758 yards and only three touchdowns. As Lacy struggled, James Starks had career highs in carries and yards. Starks fumbled four times which was one less than he had in his five previous seasons with the Packers. 


    Tonight we grade the Packers quarterbacks and running backs. Listen in and call the show.

    Green Bay Packers report card 2015 - Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

    in Sports

    The Green Bay Packers entered the season with high expectations, and the wide receiver corp was one of the strengths. However, Jordy Nelson tore his ACL, in the preseason. This meant that someone would need to step up and take over the role as the go to guy. The logical choice was Randall Cobb, but early in the season it was Aaron Rodgers looking for James Jones. Jones picked up were he left off before leaving in free agency. As the season went on, Jones cooled off and was not much of an impact in the playoffs. DeVante Adams entered his second year with high expectations after a spectacular post-season in 2014. He was riddled by nagging injuries and ended the  year with 50 catches, but only one touchdown. After re-signing with the Packers, Randall Cobb was suppose to be a perfect compliment to Nelson. With Nelson gone, Cobb struggled to get open and never got on the same page with Rodgers. Cobb ended the season as the top receiver with 79 catches for 829 yards. The Packers drafted Ty Montgomery and as he saw his role increase his season ended with injury. Montgomery put in the work in practice and was earning praise from the veteran Nelson. Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis had a hard time finding the field but were forced into action during the playoffs due to numerous injuries. 


    Andrew Quarless and Richard Rodgers were the top two tight ends. Rodgers may have saved the season with his hail mary catch, but did not give the Packers a dominant presence at tight end. He finished the year with a modest 58 catches and tied Jones for the team lead with eight touchdowns. Quarless had his season end early due to injury.

    Green Bay Packers report card 2015 - Offensive Line

    in Sports

    The last time Aaron Rodgers had lower than a 100 passer rating was his first year as a starter. The offensive line started the season with little depth, and could not afford any long term injuries. The starting five brought a veteran presence to the line, but the depth at this position was limited. Offensively, the Packers statistics were awful. A high powered offense had a quarterback with under a 100 rating, a running back that did not surpass 1,000 yards, and no receiver with over a 1,000 yards or 80 catches. 


    You can not blame the offense line for all of the offensive problems, but inconsistent play can lead to a lack of a running game. Without a running game their is more pressure on the quarterback.

    What do the Green Bay Packers need to fix to beat the Arizona Cardinals?

    in Sports

    In week 16, the Green Bay Packers visited the Arizona Cardinals. They left the desert battered, bruised, and searching for some confidence. After a scoreless first quarter, the Cardinals finished the half with a seven play, 80 yard drive to take a commanding 17-0 lead after Aaron Rodgers threw a red zone interception. This turnover happened with under two minutes left in the half and was the turning point, in the game. With the score 10-0, the Packers were driving and ready to cut into the lead before the half. Not only did the Packers come away with no points, the Cardinals increased the lead.


    The second half did not get much better. Rodgers lost two fumbles that were returned for touchdowns and the Cardinals were never threatened. The blowout loss fell clearly on the offense as the Cardinals defense outscored the Packers offense 14-8. 


    Can the Green Bay Packers compete with the Arizona Cardinals? Yes, the Packers did compete with the Cardinals in the first half. As poorly as they played, they had a chance to go into halftime down by one score. Take away the two defensive scores and the two play 28 yard drive set up by a turnover, and you have a 17-8 game. 


    To compete on saturday, the Packers need to protect Rodgers and elminate the key turnovers. The offensive line should be healthier heading into the game. With a healthier line, the Packers should be able to have a better showing. With less pressure, the Packers can eliminate the turnovers.
