Whose to blame for the Packers Offensive Struggles?


The Packers are having their worst statical season since Aaron Rodgers has been the starting QB. Everyone is struggling. Why is it? Who is responsible? Can it be fixed?

Reason One: The loss of Jordy Nelson
To the least, Jordy Nelson really made this offense deadly. Without him, the whole offensive scheme has been completely ruined. The loss of his vertical ability has killed this offense.

Reason Two: The running backs and wide receivers are underachieving.
Eddie Lacy is just having a horrid year, being injured and can’t get anything going. James Starks has done well, but he too has been injured. Randall Cobb has been injured and can’t get separation. Davante Adams has been a hit or miss, James Jones has been a pleasant surprise but has slowed down in recent weeks, Jeff Janis is invisible. Richard Rodgers has been ok, but isn’t much of a upgrade from the injured Andrew Quarless.

Reason Three: O – line Struggles
Most of the offensive line has taken a step back. Bryan Bulaga has struggled to regain form, David Bakhtiari hasn’t been impressive, Josh Sitton seems to lost a step, and Corey Linsley seems to be having communication problems with Aaron Rodgers. Only T.J Lang has done well as last year.

Reason Four: Offensive play calling
Since Tom Clements has been calling the shots, the offense has regressed. It’s not exactly his fault, but problems have been rising since Mike McCarthy gave up play calling.

So…can it be fixed?
For one, adjust the offense to the players, not the players to the offense. Second get Eddie Lacy going, he isn’t starting but really needs encouragment. Thrid let Aaron Rodgers do his thing. Hopefully these issues will be resolved.


The Jaguars have a foundation despite the lack of wins


Do the Jaguars suck? Oh yeah. But are they doomed? I think not.

Despite the lack of wins, there are some bright spots.

First of all, this is a young team, this isn’t a bunch of declining veterans, this a bunch of young players entering their 2nd year (Blake Bortles, Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, Telvin Smith, Aaron Colvin) or 1st year being a full time starter (Jeremy Parnell, Dan Skuta, Davon House, Sergio Brown)

Second, the reason we are losing is not due to the lack of talent, it’s the coaching. I think that Gus Bradley, all the Defensive and Special Team coaches need to be axed. I think General Manager David Caldwell has done well finding talent.

Thrid, we arnt getting blown out, other then the Patriots game, the Jaguars have looked competitive, until they find a way to lose.

The Jaguars, had they not shot themselves or missing field goals, would have a record of 3-3. But the fact is that they are making the same mistakes.

That’s not the lack of talent, it’s the lack of disciplined coaching.

Week 3 Predictions


Last week: 7-9
Overall: 17-15

Washington (1-1) at N.Y Giants (0-2)
Outcome: N.Y Giants
Why: The past two weeks the Giants have shot themselves in the foot. The Redskins have done better then expected. But if the Giants don’t win, Tom Coughlin will be in trouble.

Atlanta (2-0) at Dallas (2-0)
Outcome: Atlanta
Why: Brandon Weeden played pretty well at Philadelphia. However he is not Tony Romo. That makes a difference in this game.

Indianapolis (0-2) at Tennessee (1-1)
Outcome: Indianapolis
Why: Wow, the Colts look horrible. Andrew Luck didn’t play like he usually does. The Colts need to get their act together before they fall even farther.

Oakland (1-1) at Cleveland (1-1)
Outcome: Oakland
Why: Johnny Football made his presence known last week. However the Raiders rebounded and beat the Ravens. Amari Cooper looks pretty special.

Cincinnati (2-0) at Baltimore (0-2)
Outcome: Baltimore
Why: The Ravens need to dig themselves about of this hole before it’s to late

Jacksonville (1-1) at New England (2-0)
Outcome: New England
Why: The Jags won a September game! Wow, that’s a good surprise. However, the Pats are hot and will probably embarrass the youthful Jags.

New Orleans (0-2) at Carolina (2-0)
Outcome: Carolina
Why: It has been a nightmare season for the Saints, and now that Drew Brees is hurt, wow they sucked even with him. The overachieving Panthers can’t get a better chance to show the critics (including myself) what they are made of.

Philadelphia (0-2) at N.Y Jets (2-0)
Outcome: N.Y Jets
Why: Chip Kelly is starting to look more and more foolish as his team is struggling to do really anything. The Jets, especially Ryan Fitzpatrick look reborn.

Tampa Bay (1-1) at Houston (0-2) 
Outcome: Houston
Why: So far not good for the Hard Knocks team of the Texans. They need to rebound quickly. Facing a rookie QB will give them a advantage.

San Diego (1-1) at Minnesota (1-1)
Outcome: Minnesota
Why: The Vikings looked like the team that many were excited to see last week. I think that A.P will have a monster game.

Pittsburgh (1-1) at St. Louis (1-1)
Outcome: Pittsburgh
Why: How do you beat the Seahawks then lose to the Redskins the next week? Talk about inconsistency. The Steelers offense? Good luck with that one.

San Francisco (1-1) at Arizona (2-0)
Outcome: Arizona
Why: My oh my. The Cardinals look pretty dominant with Carson Palmer under center. The 49ers will struggle to stop him.

Buffalo (1-1) at Miami (1-1)
Outcome: Buffalo
Why: The Bills defense was shredded by the Pats. The Dolphins lost to the Jags. Both teams need a reboot. Rex Ryan or Joe Philbin needs to figure it out quickly 

Chicago (0-2) at Seattle (0-2)
Outcome: Seattle
Why: The Bears defense can’t put any kind of pressure on the QB. Russell Wilson is the last person you want to not be pressured.

Denver (2-0) at Detroit (0-2)
Outcome: Detroit
Why: My upset of the week, I just believe that the Broncos are a team who is still figuring out their offense. Megatron knows his offense pretty well.

Kansas City (1-1) at Green Bay (2-0)
Outcome: Green Bay
Why: Aaron Rodgers is simply historically unstoppable at home. The Chiefs have Alex Smith…eh?

Week 2 Predictions


Last Week: 10-6
Overall: 10-6

Denver (1-0) at Kansas City (1-0)
Outcome: Denver
Why: Denver beat a similar opponent in Baltimore. In this divisional showdown, Denver should win by a thread. 

Houston (0-1) at Carolina (1-0)
Outcome: Houston
Why: Both teams had rather lackluster performances last week. The Texans might not have a QB, but the defense makes up for it.

San Francisco (1-0) at Pittsburgh (1-0)
Outcome: Pittsburgh
Why: The 49ers actually looked pretty impressive last week. However Big Ben leads a offensive juggernaut that is too much for any team to handle.

Detroit (0-1) at Minnesota (0-1)
Outcome: Detroit
Why: Eek. The Vikings looked pretty bad while the Lions barley lost. If the Vikings got murdered by the 49ers, then the Lions should come out on top.

Tampa Bay (0-1) at New Orleans (0-1)
Outcome: New Orleans
Why: The Buccaneers defense completely disappeared as they let a rookie QB throw 4 touchdowns and let a underachieving running back run 74 yards. Saints is far more explosive.

Arizona (1-0) at Chicago (0-1)
Outcome: Arizona
Why: The Bears looked improved, but with a heathy Carson Palmer and a stronger defense, it’s going to be another close loss.

New England (1-0) at Buffalo (1-0)
Outcome: New England
Why: How about them Bills? Well the Patriots unlike the Colts, are far more balanced and coached. As long they have Tom Brady, the Pats are on top.

San Diego (1-0) at Cincinnati (1-0)
Outcome: Cincinnati
Why: Both teams are fairly similar, but I think the Bengals will be motivated by their loss to the Chargers from the 2013 playoffs.

Tennessee (1-0) at Cleveland (0-1)
Outcome: Cleveland
Why: Hmmmm…. I want to say Tennessee however I just have a feeling Johnny Manziel will spark the offense…I go with the home team.

Atlanta (1-0) at N.Y Giants (0-1)
Outcome: N.Y Giants
Why: The Giants almost beat the Cowboys. The Falcons beat the Eagles…I think that the Giants will win due to home field advantage.

St. Louis (1-0) at Washington (0-1)
Outcome: St. Louis
I’ll never take preseason seriously again. If the Rams can beat the Seahawks, then they can definitely beat the Skins

Miami (1-0) at Jacksonville (0-1)
Outcome: Miami
Why: Jags don’t look any different from last year. So like last year, the Dolphins will win again.

Baltimore (0-1) at Oakland (0-1)
Outcome: Baltimore
Why: It sucks to lose someone like Terrell Suggs for the whole year. But the way the Raiders played last week, Baltimore probably win this game even without a defense.

Dallas (1-0) at Philadelphia (0-1)
Outcome: Philadelphia
Why: Got some bad blood here. Dallas barley beat the Giants at home, so they probably won’t beat the Eagles at Philadelphia.

Seattle (0-1) at Green Bay (1-0)
Outcome: Green Bay
Why: Had the Packers not commited self-destruction, they would have won last year. Being at Lambeau, gives the Pack a extra factor to assist them.

N.Y Jets (1-0) at Indianapolis (0-1)
Outcome: Indianapolis
Why: Ryan Fitzpatrick isn’t Andrew Luck. And being in Indianapolis isn’t easy. Just saying.

Week 1 predictions


Week 1 Predictions

Pittsburgh at New England

Outcome: New England

Reason: The return of Tom Brady and the suspension of Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell will give the Pats the win.

Green Bay at Chicago

Outcome: Green Bay

Reason: Da Bears have no heathy receivers and combined with the power of Packers QB Aaron Rodgers just makes this game easy to determine

Kansas City at Houston

Outcome: Kansas City

Reason: Without Arian Foster, the
Texans lack a offensive threat and with Kansas City’s rebooted receiving core, the Chiefs seems to have the better offense.

Cleveland at N.Y Jets

Outcome: N.Y Jets

Reason: Honestly does Cleveland have anyone that can score? As mediocre as he is, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a whole lot better then Josh McCown. Brandon Marshall helps too.

Indianapolis at Buffalo

Outcome: Buffalo

Reason: It’s a upset, but I believe that Buffalo’s defense is one of the only defenses that can contain Andrew Luck. Just ask Aaron Rodgers.

Miami at Washington

Outcome: Miami

Reason: It’s just a mess, the Skins are in panic mode, new Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is going to destroy the Skins offensive line. Scary.

Carolina at Jacksonville

Outcome: Jacksonville

Reason: If there is any more of a good time to show themselves then now? The Panthers have no receivers, the Jags has some. In addition, Blake Bortles will show his growth.

Seattle at St. Louis

Outcome: Seattle

Reason: The Rams have been a popular candidate to be a playoff team. I disagree. Nick Foles has not looked good and having the best defensive line doesn’t matter if you can’t cover Seahawk TE Jimmy Graham.

New Orleans at Arizona

Outcome: Arizona

Reason: The Cardinals were the most dominant team till Carson Palmer tore his ACL. I think the Cardinals will surprise people. However, don’t count out Saints QB Drew Brees. It will be a close game.

Detroit at San Diego

Outcome: Detroit

Reason: While the loss of Suh hurts the Lions, they still have a good defense otherwise, and the Chargers have their fair share of playmakers. Who ever has the best run  game will win.

Tennessee at Tampa Bay

Outcome: Tampa Bay

Reason: Bucs QB Jameis Winston hasn’t impressed much but the defense of the Buccaneers are better the Titans offense. Bucs HB Doug Martin could surprise some.

Cincinnati at Oakland

Outcome: Cincinnati

Reason: The Raiders will surprise many this year. However the Bengals have been more consistent and that alone will get them the victory.

Baltimore at Denver

Outcome: Denver

Reason: The Broncos simply have more talent on offense then the Ravens. While defense wins championships, offense puts numbers on the board.

N.Y Giants at Dallas

Ouctome: Dallas

Reason: The Cowboys lost DeMarco Murray but they still have everyone else. The Giants defense doesn’t wow anyone and the Giants offensive line is unproven.

Philadelphia at Atlanta

Outcome: Philadelphia

Reason: Here comes Eagle QB Sam Bradford, if heathy, the Eagles might live to their preseason hype. The Falcons will improve but usually takes time.

Minnesota at San Francisco

Outcome: Minnesota

Reason: The Vikings look like the best up and coming team in league. San Francisco? Talk about damaged goods. They lost pretty much everyone. This might get messy.

The RGIII Drama: A sad twist of fate


Let me say one thing, when Robert Griffin III came out of Baylor in the 2012 NFL Draft, I was one of his bigger supporters. In fact, I ranked RGIII as the best player of the draft, ahead of Stanford star Andrew Luck. RGIII had amazing athletic ability, and had so much upside. What makes this such a twist of fate is that destiny started to destroy RGIII. Once, not long ago, RGIII was one the most exciting players in all of sports. Now? He is the poster child for failure. What brings up the question. What caused RGIII’S downfall? There are many factors.

1. Injuries
To say that RGIII never recovered after tearing his ACL in the 2012 Playoffs is a understatement. RGIII’s career completely fell apart afterwords. RGIII’s knee injury forced him to completely change his style of play. He could no longer rely on his legs, he now had to be a pocket passer. Well, that is not who RGIII is or will ever be. It also forced RGIII to adapt, which has contributed to him taking sacks, making bad decisions which forced him to hesitate. RGIII became a shell of his former self.

2. Horrid coaching
Jay Gruden might be the least productive coach in the league. How is RGIII supposed to succed if his own coaching staff could care less? Mike Shanahan became too dependent on RGIII after his injury and unintentionally pressured RGIII to recover from his injury too soon. Also changing his offensive scheme didn’t do RGIII any favors. Jay Gruden is the opposite. Jay Gruden was hired to fix RGIII and Jay has done the complete opposite. RGIII got worse, and Jay constantly called him out. This offseason, Jay claimed that RGIII was the unquestioned starter. That didn’t last even into the last preseason game. After RGIII’S concussion, Jay immediately named Kirk Cousins the starter, claiming it was a “easy” decision. Wait what? Obviously Jay doesn’t know a thing about keeping his word. RGIII probably doesn’t trust Jay, and quite frankly I wouldn’t ether.

3. Miscommunication within the front office
To show the Skins commitment to RGIII, they took his option which will pay him 15 million next year. So in a sense, they are paying RGIII to be on the bench. The Skins sacrificed a lot to receive RGIII which is why they still support him. In fact, the G.M Drafted Brandon Scherff this year to protect RGIII. It seems like the organization and the coaching staff are on completely different mindsets. A organization and their players can’t succed without a consistent goal.

4. RGIII’s attitude
Granted, the relationship between RGIII’s and the fans/media is very toxic. RGIII hasn’t helped himself ether, but the lack of support and the media criticism makes the whole situation worse. Also being thrown under the bus by your head coach doesn’t help

So……what’s next?
Ether the coaching staff has to go or RGIII or maybe both. One thing is sure: RGIII will not succed in the environment he is in. A change of scenery might be best.

Preseason Week 2: Packers vs Steelers Stock Report


Final Score: Steelers 24-19

Stock down: WR Jordy Nelson
Yikes. Jordy Nelson has reportedly torn his ACL, which is a blow to the Packers. He was Rodgers favorite target, and now him out for the year, receiver’s  Randall Cobb, Davante Adams, Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis will need to pick up the slack.

Stock up: Packers running game
The duo of running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks looked just dominant. Granted the offensive line blocked great, but the running game will probably be even more vital due to Jordy Nelson’s injury.

Stock down: OT Don Barclay
Oh my. Don Barclay looked just horrible, like real horrible. He gave up the only safety, and was being thrown around by second string defensive linemen. SECOND STRING!! David Bakhtiari needs to return, Aaron Rodgers heath depends on it.

Stock up: FB Aaron Ripkowski
This guy is a stud. The 6th round rookie had a pair of special teams tackles and had some good blocks late in the game. With this showing, Aaron Ripkowski will likely make the team.

Stock down: CB Quinten Rollins
After looking excellent against New England, Quinten Rollins looked the oppisite today. He was burned by Steeles rookie WR Sammie Coates for a 52 yard pass and looked lost.

Other observations
– QB Scott Tolzein looked good, but was injured. QB Brent Hundley was okay, but took a step back.
– RB Rajion Neal looked capable, and will probably be the 3rd running back on the roster.
– WR Jeff Janis flashed but had his share of hiccups.
– TE Richard Rodgers has hands of glue. It’s pretty certain he will be the starter.
– RG T.J Lang was injured, but nothing concerning like Jordy’s.
– DE Datone Jones again looked good…hopefully he can in a actual game.
– OLB Jayrone Elliot continues to dominate.
– CB Damorius Randall looked excellent, grabbing a interception. But of course, was injured due to dehydration.
– CB Ladarius Gunter is a stud. He knocked away two potential touchdown passes. He needs more playing time

Preseason Week 1: Steelers vs Jaguars, Stock Report


Final Score: Jaguars 23-21

Stock up: QB Blake Bortles

Bortles, who struggled as a rookie last year, worked on his mechanics this offseason. It showed against Pittsburgh, completing 11 out of 15 passes for 118 yards and had a rushing Touchdown. His stats would be more impressive, but 3 of his incompletions were dropped passes that should have been caught. It’s a good start, and a good sign for Blake Bortles

Stock down: CB Davon House

Remember how many including myself thought the Jaguars overpaid for Davon House? This showed why. Steelers WR Martvaris Bryant burned House for a 44 yard touchdown. It was a horrible start for Davon House.

Stock up: RB Denard Robinson

Denard looked like he did last midseason, gaining 22 yards on 4 carries and a 34 yard kick return. Expected to take the field, on 3rd downs, this year, if Denard can up the good work, the running game could be dangerous this year.

Stock down: LT Luke Joeckel

Granted it was one play, but Joeckel was getting beat by OLB James Harrison, who is almost twice the age that Joeckel is. Joeckel is expected to be decent but he looked horrible which isn’t encouraging. If the former 2nd overall pick, continues to struggle, the Jaguars might have to look elsewhere.

Stock up: DE Cap Capi

Who? An undrafted rookie from Akron, Cap recorded both of the teams two sacks, and stood out from the defensive line, which struggled without 3 out of 4 regular starters. Keep on eye on Cap.

Other observations
– Backup QB Chad Henne played extremely well, but 3rd string QB Stephen Morris struggled.
– RB Bernard Pierce and RB Toby Gerhart had a fair share of good runs. RB Storm Johnson didn’t perform well and might not make the 53 man roster.
– WR Allen Robinson looked great, while 5th round rookie WR Rashad Greene had a 37 yard punt return.
– One receiver who has surprised many is journeymen Arrelious Benn. A former 2010 2nd round draft choice from Tampa Bay has struggled with injures in his 5 season career. Arrelious had a 27 yard reception against Pittsburgh and might make the team.
– TE Julius Thomas got hurt after a 2 yard catch and is out for the preseason. Thomas has struggled with injures and needs to stay heathy.
– SS Jonathan Cyprien was injured as well, and is out for the preseason. Cyprien didn’t perform well before the injury.

Preseason Week 1: Packers vs Patriots, Stock Report


Final Score: Packers 22-11

Stock up: 2015 Packers Rookie Class

Even though 1st round rookie CB Damorius Randall didn’t play, most of the rookies looked really good. Undrafted rookie CB Ladarius Gunter showed why people are excited, intercepting QB Jimmy Garoppolo and playing good coverage. 2nd round rookie CB Quintin Rollins almost had an interception and had several pass breakups. 3rd round rookie WR Ty Montgomery caught 2 passes for 28 yards. 4th round rookie MLB Jake Ryan had 6 tackles, 2 for loss and a sack. 5th round QB Brett Hundley completed 4 out 6 passes with a TD. 6th round TE Kennard Backman caught 2 passes for 10 yards.

Stock down: FS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

While he didn’t play horribly, Clinton-Dix whiffed a tackle which Patriots RB Jonas Gray scored a long touchdown. Clinton-Dix looked lost in coverage as well. Nothing overly concerning.

Stock up: WR Jeff Janis

For a guy who didn’t impress in training camp, Jeff Janis looked pretty good last night. Janis caught 2 passes for 31 yards and a touchdown. Janis beat the jam of Patriots CB Logan Ryan (Who is expected to replace CB Darrelle Revis) for a Jordy Nelson style catch. Hopefully Janis will stay consistent.

Stock down: LT David Bakhtiari

For a guy who had a good season, Bakhtiari struggled last night. He was beat a couple times and allowed a sack from Patriots 4th round rookie DE Trey Flowers. That’s unexceptable for a veteran to beat by a rookie.

Stock up: DE Datone Jones

Datone Jones showed signs of life, after disappointing last year and having a one game suspension, Datone Jones bounced back for 2 tackles for loss and 2 sacks. If he can break out this year, he could be the missing piece for the defensive line.

Other observations
– QB Scott Tolzein looked impressive last night, which is very encouraging.
– TE Andrew Quarless and WR Davante Adams were targeted quite a bit, but both dropped easy catches.
– DE Khyri Thornton had a pressure, but other then that, seems like a lost cause.
– OLB Jayrone Elliot played really well, as did OLB Andy Mulumba, OLB Adrian Hubbard and MLB Carl Bradfield.
