The Green Bay Packers came out of week 1 of the preseason with a lopsided win over the Philadelphia Eagles, but it wasn’t pretty.
Let’s start with the good. There were really three players who stuck out to us as having played well. Surprisingly, all three were on defense.
That brings us to the bad. Boy, the Packers’ pass defense didn’t look any better than it did in 2016, did it? We found two main culprits, including one who looked like he just didn’t care to be out there.
Shawn and I are having a difference of opinion on quarterback Brett Hundley. Where we do not have a difference of opinion is on Aaron Rodgers. Not surprisingly, he was a no show for the first preseason game. That probably won’t change.
But Shawn has an interesting perspective on game action vs. practice action. It may make you re-think Rodgers standing around all preseason.
And that brings me to the ugly. You know what’s coming here — the cheap shots on Damarious Randall and Malachi Dupre. Plus, we’re going to sum up the overall injury situation.
We’ll take a look at the loss of Letroy Guion, which I believed to be related to how well the young defensive line guys are playing. Shawn has a much more interesting theory, however. You can probably guess — more drugs.
All that, the developments so far this week and a barrel of laughs, too.
