This week, Nick and Alex try to understand why NFL coaches shy away from risks in big spots, and question whether or not McCarthy should have done it after Saturday's Hail Mary. They also debut another terrible new game and question why fat guys get to call Eddie Lacy fat.
2-Pack, brought to you by Alex Petakas and Nick Bornheimer, is just one of many great Green Bay Packers podcasts you will find at PackersTalk. Keep up on all the latest Packers news by following us on iTunes, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
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.
The Green Bay Packers used a balanced attack to defeat the Washington Redskins 35-18, in the wildcard round of the NFL playoffs. The Packers had 32 rushing and 37 passing plays. After finding themselves down 11-0, Mike McCarthy didn't waver from the game plan. Eddie Lacy and James Starks both had 12 carries, one touchdown and a run for over 20 yards. Randall Cobb and John Kuhn also had carries for the Packers, who ended the day with 141 rushing yards. This balanced attack kept the front seven of the Redskins in check. After an early sack by Preston Smith that led to a safety, the offensive line did not allow another sack on Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers and the Packer offense started slow once again. Rodgers started 1 for 8 and the Packers punted on three of their first four drives. The other drive ended in a safety. With the wind, the passing game opened up the running game. Seven different receivers caught passes from Rodgers, who finished 21 of 36 for 210 yards and two touchdowns. The Packers continued to struggle on third down, converting only three of 11 opportunities. However, timely runs and passes kept drives alive.
The defense made a statement early in the game. After the Redskins recorded a safety, they received the ensuing kickoff and started the drive on their own 45 yard line. Five plays later the Redskins had a first and ten, on the Green Bay 15 yard line. Kirk Cousins completed a short pass over the middle to DeSean Jackson. Jackson weaved to the sideline and lunged for the end zone. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix didn't give up on the play and forced Jackson out of bounds. The officials ruled touchdown on the field, but reply clearly shows that the ball never crossed the plain of the goal line and the call was over turned. The Packers defense had a goal line stand and forced the Redskins to settle for a field goal. This series set the tempo for an aggressive defense that recorded six sacks.

The Green Bay Packers were a Super Bowl favorite as training camp started. In a preseason game, in Pittsburgh, Jordy Nelson tore his ACL and was lost for the year. This was a big blow, but it should not have derailed an offense that is led by MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers drafted two young cornerbacks, in the NFL Draft. Dom Capers was still searching for middle linebacker and used All-Pro Clay Matthews in that role. The defense did not dominate, but kept an inept offense in a number of games.
Minnesota ended the reign of the Packers as NFC North Champions by defeating them at Lambeau Field, in Week 17. The Packers entered the playoffs rolling the wrong way. After starting the season 6-0, they finished 10-6 and had to go on the road as a wildcard team. The Packers defeated the Washington Redskins and then faced Arizona in the Divisional round. A second hail mary kept the season alive until overtime. The defense allowed a big play, and the Cardinals scored the game winning touchdown.
