It's become very apparent over the course of the last couple of weeks that the Packers are planning on mixing in Brady Poppinga at the left outside linebacker position.
Good God WHY?
Now, I know Brad Jones needs to hit the weight room in the offseason. He's a bit slight still for the NFL. But the guy has proven that he can more than hold his own on the edge in the running game and offers worlds more rushing the passer. Poppinga, meanwhile, offers the best vertical of those who like to jump on the pile after the play is over.
Look, I get they are trying to rest guys. I understand the rotation when it comes to getting Chillar on the field inside. But taking Jones off the field for anything other than a breather here and there is ridiculous. Poppinga is a big drop off and close to a liability, especially when it comes to rushing the passer.
