Packers Are Screwed At Cornerback
Remember last season when the Green Bay Packers ended up having to start Demetri Goodson at cornerback when they were decimated by injuries? Apparently they didn’t learn anything from that.
The Packers currently have corners Kevin King (not as advertised) and Quinten Rollins (complete garbage) on injured reserve. They also have Davon House dealing with what may be a fairly serious knee injury.
House is doubtful for the Packers’ must-win game in Cleveland this weekend. That means there’s a pretty high probability he isn’t playing.
That would make Damarious Randall and Josh Hawkins the Packers’ outside corners. It would put safety Morgan Burnett in the slot. And that would mean the Packers will be giving heavy snaps to Josh Jones, Marwin Evans and/or Jermaine Whitehead.
That brings me to this point. Where the hell has Marwin Evans been?
Not a single snap in week 13. Only one in week 12. He had had at least 10 defensive snaps in the five weeks prior. Now, persona non grata.
Are you telling me Jermaine Whitehead is a better player? Should have been on the active roster to begin with then, shouldn’t he? But the Packers judge personnel about as well as a cow uses a phone.
They just awkwardly hoof it and hope for the best, you know?
And here’s where I point out the obvious. The thing we have pointed out several times before.
GOOD THING YOU CUT LADARIUS GUNTER, BIG TED!!!!
The Packers do have two undrafted rookies available, however. Lenzy Pipkins and Donatello Brown are good to go. They’re seemingly just not in the Packers’ plans for Sunday.
And of course, since these are the Green Bay Packers, the injury list doesn’t end with Davon House.
Nick Perry, Quinton Dial and Lucas Patrick are all listed as questionable for the game.
