Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is a guest on the show, courtesy of EAS, to talk to Jess about the offseason, the loss of a couple of teammates and the addition of a new left tackle via free agency. He also talks about what the offense could do in Year 2 under Bruce Arians. And, being National Nutrition Month, he explains what he and EAS are promote for better health.
It all could have been so beautiful...another Hail Mary, another amazing win, another charmed playoff season on the road....until Larry Fitzgerald single-handedly stole the Packers' mojo and ended their season, leading Packer fans to turn on the nearest available targets to take out their frustration: Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarthy, Ted Thompson, Eddie Lacy, fellow Packer fans.... But one person is clearly free of any blame for anything: JEFF JANIS. Janis Truthers, you were right.

Arizona Cardinals superstar wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald joins Jess to talk a little bit about the offseason changes the team underwent. Specifically, Larry answers questions about how the coaching change affected him personally, how Ken Whisenhunt and Bruce Arians differ in interactions with players and demeanor, his offseason training and the excitement he has for this coming season. He tells of the young receivers that are standing out.
There are a number of pieces that attribute to a good pass defense, but having good secondary play is essential. The Green Bay Packers addressed a need by drafting two young cornerbacks, Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins. Both played meaningful minutes throughout the year. They joined a veteran group with Sam Shields, Micah Hyde, Morgan Burnett, and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
The Packers pass defense finished the year allowing 227.6 yards per game which ranked sixth in the league. They finished ninth in the league with 16 interceptions. The 72 passes defensed ranked 16th.
After a solid year, the one memory that many Packer fans will have is Sam Shields breaking on a Carson Palmer pass that would have been an interception and possibly a pick six, but the ball fell harmlessly to the ground. In overtime, a broken play left Larry Fitzgerald wide open as he scampered downfield.
This young secondary should only improve in the upcoming years.
Aaron Rodger pulled off 2 Hail Mary's and didn't win it for the team.
Fitzgerald was stunning.

Today I'm doing something a bit different from my usual show. Today, I'm talking about a subject very near and dear to my heart and soul and I have the amazing privilege to be talking about it with a friend who shares my views. Our subject is animal cruelty and in fact living a cruelty-free life. Whether you've never had a pet or like me you've had hundreds...living a cruelty-free life is something that should be of paramount importance to each and every one of us.
As always thanks for listening.
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.
