Comments on: Five More Thoughts on Packers Win Over Cardinals http://totalpackers.com/2012/11/05/five-more-thoughts-on-packers-win-over-cardinals/ Your Green Bay Packers: Telling It Like It Is Sat, 04 Jul 2015 06:43:02 +0000 hourly 1 By: SoTxPhil http://totalpackers.com/2012/11/05/five-more-thoughts-on-packers-win-over-cardinals/#comment-95697 Tue, 06 Nov 2012 04:58:24 +0000 http://www.totalpackers.com/?p=15870#comment-95697 It seems to me like GB’s defense is doing very well on first and sec down, but whenever it is third and long (over 8 yds) we always go into the 3 man rush with 8 back which gives the QB, no matter who he is, plenty of time to find a rcvr/TE wide open for a good gain and usually a first down. It makes no sense to me why Capers keeps using this scheme when it fails to bring up fourth down most of the time. Putting more pressure on the bad QBs causes more bad things to happen when they have to get rid of it quick.

Let Starks and Green switch off and we should be fine there. Give Starks the short yardage plays.

The only thing wrong with the pass defense is that it is young as hell. Hayward, House, McMillian and Jennings all still have a ways to go. Like typical youth, they shined at times and stunk at times.

Morgan Burnett has shined in Woodson’s old role. He is clearly better near the line of scrimmage.

If he really had 8 catches at 30.3/ catch, he would be over 240 yards receiving?

Yes, that’s the same 49ers who have the second best pass defense in the league. The Packers pass defense is 20th, which isn’t ideal but it could be worse. They can be really frustrating to watch, but I think it’s being somewhat overstated about how bad they are. They are 11th in the league in points allowed with almost 21 per game. If the offense is playing the way that it is capable of playing 21 points per game is certainly adequate.

They’re going to a zone trying to keep everything in front of them.

Yes, we had a bunch of running yards last game. I’m not convinced that the problems are gone there. We didn’t run it very successfully in the fourth quarter when we were trying to run out the clock.

Andy:

It also shouldn’t be overlooked that the packers pass defence is getting lousy quarterbacks to throw up to 50 times a game. It seems to work. Also the packers are always ahead so you force other teams to wing it.
I’m also going to add that if the passing offense looks “off” i’m glad that they’re still putting up 4 tds a game. That works for me.
Best special teams in the league? Very possible.

When the opposing team throws 50 passes, they are going to have 300 yards. His completion percentage was 50%.
