In order for weapons to be effective, you . Jersey from linchao's blog

Monday night’s game against the San Francisco 49ers was another insane chapter in the legend that is Aaron Rodgers Youth Kenny Clark Jersey , but it was also a game that helped boost confidence in other players going forward. While it wasn’t necessarily a make-or-break game for the Green Bay Packers, it did feel as if this was a “get right” game going into a bye. Considering the Packers come out of the bye playing two of the strongest opponents in the league on their own fields (@ Rams, @ Patriots), the Packers can avoid the “What’s Wrong with Them?” headlines and shift more to the “How Can They Get Better?” headlines. Keep monitoring these players as they go into a bye week stretch that sees several teams having an off week. Some of these players aren’t worth dumping to stream another option.Stock UpMason Crosby, KCredit where it’s due. Including a clutch game-winner on Monday night, Crosby kicked the ball perfectly finishing 4/4 on field goal attempts and 3/3 on extra points. This was a great sign as the longtime Packer kicker was—to put it delicately— a disaster in Detroit. It helped that QB1 put him in a position to kick a make-able game-winning field goal, but getting that confidence boost is important. While that game against the Lions was a tough look, Crosby should be back on your rosters if the Packers can’t figure out their red zone offense. Currently, Crosby leads the league in field goal attempts (20). Jimmy Graham, TEGraham’s season has been mostly up-and-down. With Davante Adams as the primary target no matter what field position the Packers have, Graham has been slow coming out of the gate. His five catches on nine targets were a great sign, though Cheap Josh Jackson Jersey , as he went over 100 yards for the first time this season. His 20 yards per catch average was nice to see, even if it was against the Niners. The Packers next three games after the bye are all against teams that are at least in the top-12 for DVOA defending tight ends (LAR, NE, MIA), but hopefully two weeks of rest and preparation will put other weapons back on the field to open up more opportunities for Graham. Rookie wide receiversWhile the stats favored Marques Valdes-Scantling, I’m keeping an eye on Equanimeous St. Brown, especially in dynasty leagues. MVS again showed why he’s a developing deep threat that could help stretch the field for years to come by reining in three catches for 103 yards. St. Brown only recorded one catch, but it was a 19-yarder that was huge in the final drive of the game. Granted, it was a masterful throw by Rodgers, but that doesn’t take away from the clean route and impressive grab by the rookie. After struggling to get on the same page with Rodgers earlier this season, it’s plays like those that can help build the confidence Rodgers has in you. There are no moral victories in football, but the Packers should feel more confident in their offense moving forward.Stock DownAaron Jones Youth Geronimo Allison Jersey , RBI hate writing that. Jones is such an excellent playmaker and his declining stock isn’t through fault of his own. He still averaged five yards per carry against the Niners, but as McCarthy keeps stating, the game script is calling for Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams to underwhelm out of the backfield. I get that there’s more to playing running back than running the ball, but Jones is so dynamic that he helps put the Packers in more manageable field position. Thanks to The Ringer’s Danny Kelly, he pointed out that only the Browns have faced more 3rd-and-long situations while also ranking 3rd in average yards to go per play. At this point you should probably take Jones out of any flex situations until proven otherwise. Keep you ears open for any clues as to the direction of Jones’ usage during the bye week. Another game against an elite opponent, another blown opportunity for the Green Bay Packers.Just like last week’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams, last night’s defeat at the hands of the New England Patriots saw Green Bay keep pace for a big chunk of the game only for a crippling mistake to occur that all but ends their chances. The difference? This week’s mistake game much earlier in the fourth quarter and the Packers never recovered. When two consecutive long completions by quarterback Aaron Rodgers had Green Bay driving during a tied game, running back Aaron Jones fumbles the ball, New England recovered and Green Bay never did.As good teams do, the Patriots put the game away by seizing on the Packers’ mistake and put them away. The offense never recovered for the Packers and the It was again a microcosm of their season: show promise on both sides of the football, but then show maddening deficiencies. That’s a sign of a mediocre team and being mediocre doesn’t cut it in a city nicknamed “Titletown.” The season is at the halfway point and jobs are definitely on the line in the second half of the 2018 campaign.You can read more on the loss to the Patriots plus how New England’s creativity immediately knocked Green Bay on their heels in today’s cheese curds. Another opportunity slips away for the Packers—Packers.comEvergreen headline. The Packers can’t get out of their own way and whose shoulders does that lie on? The players? The coaches? They’d better get that figured out fast or they’ll miss the playoffs again, this time with Rodgers available for the whole season. That’s all sorts of embarrassing.Lack of balance topples Packers’ chances against the Patriots—PackersNews.comThe Packers will always live and die on the right arm of Rodgers , but does it have to be that way? You’ve got a weapon in Jones, fumble aside. In order for weapons to be effective, you have to consistently use them.Packers don’t hold up their end in Aaron Rodgers-Tom Brady showdown—ESPNIt was billed as a battle of two elite quarterbacks but everyone knew it would come down to the other 20 players on the field. The Patriots knew how to use theirs. The Packers? Not so much. It also doesn’t help when Rodgers, who normally excels under the blitz, was mediocre under pressure.Patriots get creative to separate themselves from Packers in win—USA TodayHe won’t be a popular name after leaving the Colts at the altar this offseason, but does anyone else salivate at the thought of Rodgers in a Josh McDaniels-led offense? Packers are crumbling: Three takeaways from loss to Patriots—Packers Wire People are going to pile on McCarthy and the coach deserves his share of the blame. You can’t let Rodgers off the hook, though. He’s been rattled, making poor reads and yet again holding the ball too long. He’s going to have to break those habits if the Packers want to make the postseason.
