Packers - Vikings: Week 17 Preview

The Packers are taking on the Vikings on Sunday night with a chance to potentially lock up the #1 seed in the NFC as well as eliminate Minnesota from the playoffs. We start with some discussion on how the Packers will manage their roster on Sunday with the number of guys currently on the COVID list as well as injury report. Next, we dive right into the key matchups and expected game plans for the Packers offense against the Vikings, starting with highlighting how getting Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon, and the run game going could make a big difference (00:03:40).  We also discuss how having Marquez Valdes-Scantling back could be a shot in the arm for the pass game, and whether the Packers may have to add some different personnel groupings and play call wrinkles due to being short handed at TE (00:15:25).  After the break, we look at how the Packers defense can fix their run defense against Delvin Cook, keying on our defensive line and outside linebackers (00:27:19).  We also look at our secondary matchups, particularly our safeties covering over the top against Justin Jefferson and the importance of taking advantage of opportunities Kirk Cousins presents for turnovers.  Next, we discuss what options the Packers have on Special Teams, particularly in the return game and what we will do at Punter/holder if Corey Bojorquez is unable to go (00:47:40).  Lastly, we finish with our nominations for our #BeLegendary X – Factors, (00:59:05) and score predictions for the game.

Packers Steal Christmas From Browns

The Packers play ‘Grinch’ and steal a win from the Cleveland Browns by forcing 4 INT’s to improve to 12-3 after a 24-22 win on Christmas day at Lambeau Field. In a game that, despite the win, left a lot to be desired, we start start our breakdown with positive takeaways from Aaron Rodgers and Davonte Adams making history (00:02:15), to Rasul Douglas and the defense forcing 4 INTs and 5 sacks (00:13:35), to an actual decent games from Special Teams (00:19:45). We then take some questions from our livestream chat and spend some time discussing the likelihood of guys currently injured to return, from Jaire Alexander, to David Bahktiari, to Za’Darius Smith, as well as Billy Turner and Josh Meyers (00:22:04).  Next we examine some of the negative takeaways, from the run defense to the offensive struggles in the second half, and whether those issues are some cracks in the foundation or quickly correctible, and what they each mean for the team in the big picture (00:34:03).  Lastly, we finish up with our #BeLegendary Big Cheese players of the week (01:03:13).

Packers - Browns - Week 16 Preview

The Packers are back at Lambeau to take on the Cleveland Browns on a Christmas Day matchup Saturday afternoon. We start with some Aaron Rodgers appreciation ahead of what will likely be a record setting moment as he prepares to pass Brett Favre for all-time franchise pass Touchdowns. Next, we dive right into the key matchups and expected game plans for the Packers offense against a gritty Browns defense led by Myles Garrett (00:06:51).  We also discuss whether the Browns will copy the Ravens’ Davonte Adams game plan or will try to matchup and slow down the secondary options as other teams have done.  We also look at how the Packers may balance touches between Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon in a way that will keep both productive at the same time (00:33:19).  After the break, we look at how the Packers defense will slow down Nick Chubb, Baker Mayfield, and the rest of the Browns offense (00:42:04).  We also take some questions from the chat in our Facebook/Twitter/Youtube livestream.  Lastly, we finish with our nominations for our #BeLegendary X – Factors, (01:03:40) and score predictions for the game.

Packers Hang on to Beat Ravens

The Packers improve to 11-3 after hanging on in Baltimore and escaping with a 31-30 win on Sunday. After some updates on the playoff picture and tiebreaker scenario and a brief discussion of today’s roster moves, we start our game breakdown by going right to the fourth quarter and the point the Ravens started their frantic comeback (00:09:50). Despite some potential holes in the foundation the last few weeks, we explain why big picture we aren’t panicking and still feel pretty good about where the defense is at, albeit with some slight concerns.  After the break, we look at what was another highly efficient and productive performance on the offensive side of the ball, led by Aaron Rodgers and a step up game from our secondary options both in the tight end group as well as Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard (00:31:45).  We also discuss how Aaron Jones looked healthier and stronger in his most expansive role since his injury.  Lastly, we spend a few minutes on special teams before finishing up with our #BeLegendary Big Cheese players of the week (00:42:27).

Packers - Ravens - Week 15 Preview

The Packers are headed to Baltimore to take on the AFC North leading Ravens on Sunday afternoon. We start with an update on injuries and a great news that David Bakhtiari is back at practice, Jaire Alexander continues to practice and ramp up, and Billy Turner seems to have avoided a serious season ending injury. Next, we dive into the key matchups and expected game plans for the Packers defense against the Ravens offense this week (00:13:59), and how Lamar Jackson’s injury could affect both his availability and, if he is able to go, effectiveness.  We also do a deep dive on Mark Andrews and what makes him so dangerous, as well as how the Packers may be able to use pressure both in coverage as well as pass rush to be disruptive.  After the break, we look at how the Packers offense will keep things going against a Ravens defense that has a secondary that’s been depleted by injury and has been getting gouged by big plays all season (00:34:20). Dane would like to see the Packers use the rushing attack to set the tempo and rhythm early, while Wags believes the Packers should try to be aggressive in the passing attack in an effort to force the tempo and get the Ravens out of their comfort zone.  Lastly, we finish with a few thoughts on special teams changes that may or may not occur, our nominations for our #BeLegendary X – Factors, (00:47:33) and score predictions for the game.
