2009 Season Defensive Player Grades

2009 Season Defensive Player Grades

Nose Tackle: Ryan Pickett: B Quieted doubts about his ability to fit the scheme. Was a first-rate run stuffer and more than held his own against constant double teams. Set to be a free agent, the team is currently in discussions with his agent to bring him back. A big (no pun intended) positive in the locker room. B.J. Raji C+ Hampered by injury earlier in the year, Raji was never the difference maker the team was hoping it was getting. Extremely versatile, Raji did everything he was asked, including playing downfield in coverage. The problem was he didn’t do any one thing extremely well. It will be very interesting to see what an offseason spent in Dave Redding’s program will do for his conditioning. Defensive End: Cullen Jenkins B - Feasted on inferior competition while disappearing against the better offensive lines the team faced. Allayed most fears about his ability to stand up to the down-after-down pounding the 3-4 end position requires. Supplied pressure on the quarterback, which is always a luxury from a 3-4 end. Johnny Jolly B By almost any measure, Jolly had an excellent season. The worry, of course, is how much of what was on display was the dreaded ‘contract year’ doing the motivation. Given his perceived attitude both on and off the field, it’s impossible not to color all examination of his play this year with that brush. That said, his play was superb across the board. Jarius Wynn D + Wynn (friend of the show, though maybe not after he sees his grade…) was pushed around in the run game and offered next to nothing on passing downs. Needs an offseason to define the mass he has. The bigger problem? Doesn’t seem to have a motor at all. Michael Montogomery D – Barely played. For a reason. Justin Harrell I The man fans love to hate who’s name isn’t Jarrett Bush.

2009 Season Offensive Player Grades

2009 Season Offensive Player Grades

The defense, specialist and coaching grades to follow tomorrow. Look forward to your reactions. Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers: A- Rodgers became one of the leagues best quarterbacks throughout the course of the season and did a great job attacking his major flaw – holding on to the ball too long. Next season should cement Rodgers as an elite NFL quarterback. Matt Flynn: C Flynn looked worlds better when he saw the field this season than he did last year in his one appearance. Of course, coming in for mop-up duty is much different than coming in down big and needing to drive the team to a score… Running Back: Ryan Grant: B Ended the season with several big runs and definitely showed the same explosion through the hole he displayed in ’07. Did an adequate job in the passing game but still needs work in that area Brandon Jackson: B+ An absolute beast in pass protection, Jackson not only improved in that area, he became a true threat in the screen game. Needs more opportunities. Ahman Green: C Green was brought in for his veteran leadership and he supplied it. Obviously not the elite back he was under Mike Sherman, but a pro’s pro who gets the job done. Deshawn Wynn:  D The coaching staff raved about his ability all offseason and throughout training camp. It never appeared on the field in 2009 before the second year back was put on I.R. Fullback: Korey Hall: C Bit by the injury bug all year, Hall was an exceptional lead blocker when he did see the field. John Kuhn: C A versatile player that McCarthy uses in numerous ways, his pass catching ablility offsets his less-than-stellar blocking Quinn Johnson: C- Johnson, inactive the first part of the season, had one or two blocks a game that showed you why the Packers drafted him. His inability to grasp the system early was a big disappointment.
