Episode 16 of APP
(Recap of Packers vs. Browns)
X’s & O’s
Not going to lie - I was scared to death during this game for the first +3 quarters. The Packers at one point were down 14 points - to the f***ing browns. ?
Jamal Williams continued to impress - he looks to be the #1 RB right now, ahead of Aaron Jones. It’s great to see him take this opportunity and go with it.
The pass rush on the packers is absolutely horrid - it didn’t help that Nick Perry wasn’t playing due to injury but it hasn’t been any good all year even when he is healthy.
The secondary is pretty bad too, but they are getting very injured. Davon House suffered some sort of odd back injury that will keep him out at least one week (against Carolina) possibly two weeks.
As a follow-up, this defense should NEVER play zone coverage - they get annihilated every time they move to it because guys on the back end don’t seem to know what they are doing(!)
Davante Adams is making himself some money in a contract year - if the packers let him test free agency he is going to get huge money. They need to get a deal done now, regardless of how the season plays out. He is one of the few players that continues to perform WITHOUT Aaron Rodgers.
Aaron Rodgers DESPERATELY wants to play, which is obviously great to see. He was being about as demonstrative as I’ve ever seen on the sidelines late in the game.
I have to give Brett Hundley credit - he is clutch at the end of games, when it matters most. That is definitely a good trait to see.
Outside of Football stuff:
“Throw Hundley under the bus ? Its going to look funny, but pull #12 wih the least bit of faultering, don`t wait to .long. Throw a game plan curve at them they never expected.”
“Unless Rodgers can play CB it probably doesn't matter.”
“Just hope Rodgers isn't accused of any sexual harrassment. Right or wrong, it's the Kiss of Death.”
APP Poll: Should Rodgers be shut down for the rest of the year if they lose to the Panthers?
