Against the Bears Cheap Davante Adams Jersey , it was the first few drives. The next week, it was
the final few for the Vikings. On a sloppy day in Washington, it was the entire first half. Mike
Pettine’s defense has given up 10-0 runs, 14-0 runs, and 14-3 runs at various points this season.
Alex Smith and Co. hit up the Green Bay Packers’ defense for 28 in the first half. Kirk Cousins
hung 22 on Pettine’s crew in just the fourth quarter. Even Mitch Trubisky got 10 straight to open
the season.On those drives, the Green Bay defense looked discombobulated and undisciplined. Missed
tackles and missed assignments marked long scoring drives kept alive by key penalties and key
conversions. What makes this even more maddening for fans is the rest of the game, this unit looks
ferocious.After that 10-play, 86-yard drive to open the Bears season, Chicago managed just 210
total yards in 56 plays after that. That’s 3.75 yards per play and dominating defense. But that’s
against Mitch Trubisky, hardly a high bar right?Before the third quarter drive that ended in
fourth-quarter touchdown for the Vikings in Week 2, Green Bay held Minnesota to 147 yards in 36
plays and just the lone touchdown. That’s barely four yards per play. After that, they gave up 191
yards on 20 plays and three touchdowns plus the two-point conversion to tie. And against Alex Smith
in Week 3 the defense allowed 336 yards in 34 first-half plays, giving up 28 points. In the second
half, the Packers defense gave up just 50 yards on 21 plays, with 3 points coming off a short field
following Randall Cobb’s fumble. Defensively, the Packers have played two dominant second halves
and one dominant first half. Jay Gruden was protecting a lead and may not have been as aggressive,
up double digits against the Packers
http://www.officialpackersfootballstore.com/davante-adams-jersey-cheap , but if that’s true he’s a
bad history student. We’ve seen what Rodgers can do. It’s still up to the defense to make those
plays and they did. It’s worth mentioning that the Vikings’ offensive explosion correlates directly
to the loss of Kevin King with injury. Davon House got torched on the 75-yard touchdown to Stefon
Diggs and generally struggled against Washington with bad penalties and poor technique. His injury
could be a blessing in disguise for the Packers, who now bring in Bashaud Breeland — one of the
prized cornerback free agents this offseason — to add stability to the cornerback room. Breeland
would be an upgrade over House in any circumstance, but getting him for cheap just when this team
needs depth could provide the ideal shot in the arm for Mike Pettine’s group.But they have to do
better on early downs and in the red zone. When the Packers blitz, they’re highly effective, but
they’re saving that mostly for third-and-obvious passing situations. According to The Athletic’s
Ben Fennell the Packers have the second-most effective blitz package in football this season,
giving up a 31.2 quarterback rating with two picks, two sacks, and no touchdowns. On the other
hand, when teams are driving it and getting in scoring position, they’re too often finding paydirt.
This was a common problem for the Packers last season under Dom Capers when they were the worst
situational group in the league. Quarterbacks inside the 30 are 16/20 with 4 TDs and 0 INTs for a
135.8 rating, second-worst in football. Part of that comes from a lack of top-tier talent in their
primes. Clay Matthews isn’t a field-tilter and Nick Perry runs too hot and cold. While Jaire
Alexander and Josh Jackson could be stars in the future, they’re not ready to put a defense on
their back and there are too many holes right now in communication and execution when defending the
goal line. Situational defense should improve as the defense works more in unison, but they also
need some of these young players to grow into playmakers. Kevin King must stay healthy, with his
impact on this defense so evident. There may not be a way to hide the obvious deficiencies of Ha Ha
Clinton-Dix and Kentrell Brice, but Pettine will have to find a way. This defense has flashed
brilliance and utter incompetence. If this defense can just replace the latter with mere
competence, it should be good enough to give Aaron Rodgers and this offense plenty of chances to
score enough to win.Packers stock watch: Aaron Jones looks healthy, JK Scott ready for regular
season In the vast majority of cases Cheap Jaire Alexander Jersey , one preseason game will not
make or break a player’s chances for a contributing role or a spot on the season-opening roster.
However, their performances make up part of the larger picture, something the Green Bay Packers’
coaches will consider as the preseason nears its conclusion.With roster spots on the line, certain
players stood out during the Packers’ 33-21 exhibition loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, though not
all in a positive matter.Stock upAaron JonesInjuries and a looming suspension kept Aaron Jones out
of the spotlight during the offseason, but the second-year running back looked fully recovered
during his preseason debut. Despite shoddy offensive-line play, Jones managed 55 yards on 12
touches, including a 13-yard, bounce-out scamper that put his balance on display and set up his
1-yard touchdown on the following play.Jones will soon begin his two-game ban, during which time
Jamaal Williams projects to see the majority of the carries. But when Jones returns, he could
eventually make a push for the starting job.JK ScottWhile JK Scott put his leg on display
throughout training camp, he didn’t quite put his potential on display during the Packers’ first
two preseason outings. He started to turn the corner a week ago against the Oakland Raiders, and he
delivered in a big way on Friday. He boomed four punts for a 52-yard average, including a moonshot
with 5.16 seconds of hang time just before halftime. He even registered a tackle during the
second-half opening kickoff.Green Bay expected a lot of Scott, and it the team put its faith in the
right punter. With the early stumbles apparently out of the way, he looks ready for the regular
season.Robert Tonyan Jr.The player known as “Big Bob” on the Acme Packing Company slack channel put
together another solid performance in the preseason finale. Robert Tonyan Jr. caught four passes
for 31 yards and a touchdown, but those numbers don’t paint the entire picture. On a poorly placed
throw from Boyle http://www.officialpackersfootballstore.com/jaire-alexander-jersey-cheap , Tonyan
made a mid-air adjustment to corral the football over the shoulder of his defender.Even with all
the necessary caveats out of the way -- the Chiefs played almost exclusively reserves, Kansas City
defensive coordinator Bob Sutton did not appear to game plan for Green Bay’s offense -- Tonyan
impressed again. Whether he makes the final cut or not, he’ll have a job on someone’s roster or
practice squad to start the season.Stock downVince BiegelVince Biegel’s time with the Wisconsin
Badgers makes him a favorite for many Packers fans, but he hasn’t come close to replicating the
success of his collegiate career with Green Bay. That trend continued Friday night, with the
Chiefs’ backup offensive line pushing Biegel 5 to 10 yards off the ball throughout the night. The
former fourth-round pick did nothing to narrow the gap between himself and the Packers’ other
reserve pass rushers.Because Clay Matthews and Nick Perry tend to miss time with injuries, the
Packers can’t skimp on depth at outside linebacker. That necessity probably allows Biegel to
survive cuts and make the 53-man roster. Don’t confuse that with faith from the front office. Right
now, Biegel’s selection looks like a misfire.Trevor DavisWhile Trevor Davis hasn’t played a snap
during the preseason before Friday night, a mistake-free night might have given the Packers’
coaching staff just enough reason to bring him onto the final roster. Davis did an adequate job on
the game-opening kickoff, but he fumbled his first punt return during the second quarter.The
third-year receiver does play other roles on special teams, so he could overcome his return gaffe.
Still, Davis hasn’t contributed much offensively during his career, a trend that appears unlikely
to change given the cavalcade of wideouts Green Bay selected in the draft. Davis’ ball security
issues should cost him come Saturday.Josh HawkinsGiven the Packers’ investment at cornerback this
offseason, it seemed highly unlikely that Josh Hawkins could have played his way onto the roster
again this year. Still, the third-year corner’s poor preseason finale might have done serious
damage to his prospects of latching on with another team. Despite possessing elite-level speed,
Hawkins managed to let Byron Pringle get behind him for a 62-yard haul. That continues Hawkins’
downward trajectory since he flashed a preseason ago.
