After Further Review: Packers vs. Broncos

After Further Review: Packers vs. Broncos

Ross will provide a few observations every Monday afternoon following a Packers game based on a few viewings of the condensed version of the game on NFL GamePass.  While this might not be the All-22 camera deep dive that might be more "educational", it should provide a conversation point for the rest of the week.

Marwin Evans is Mr. August.  Evans has stood out in each of the Packers first three preseason contests, against both the run and pass.  He dropped an interception on Saturday night that he probably shouldn't have, but he put himself in position to make that and numerous other plays all preseason long.  HHCD, Burnett, Jones, Brice and Evans are such a far cry away from the terrible shape the safety position was in just a few seasons ago.

Evans has really taken a step in year 2. He has really impressed me this preseason. He is all over the field and is a huge special teams contributor. 5 safety's are a lock on the 53. Probably the only position that is settled.

RB's - I loved seeing Montgomery show his burst on that explosive run. But not only that I loved seeing him on the TD run. He has some really good instincts. I can't wait to see how they use Montgomery in the offense this year.
I really like Aaron Jones. The vision he had to cut that back showed the speed of the game is slowing down for him. Also showed that he has really good speed. I think he will be a perfect fit in our offense.
I think they will end up keeping all 3 rookies on the 53.

Right now I think Nelson, Cobb, Adams, Davis and Janis are on the opening day 53. Allison will join a week later. That leaves maybe 1 possibly 2 spot(s) for Yancey, Durpe, McCaffrey and Clark. Clark obviously being the longest shot right now to make it. That being said this game Thursday will be huge in deciding who makes the 53.
This should be one of the best battles to watch.

If you're right RC about the receivers then expect to see some combo of McCaffrey, Dupre, Yancey or Clark being offered PS spots, and not necessarily from GB.

Even if the Pack want all the left-over receivers on the their PS, I don't think they'll all land there. Because, if I'm correct, I believe once these players are cut they all become free agents who are currently not on any teams PS, even if they were on one before. This would be significant because these players could sign with any other teams PS and not have to be brought up to their 53. That makes them much more relatively attractive. Once a player is signed to a PS then I believe the 53 rule comes into affect for him.

Normally fans exaggerate the relative value of their own players, but in this case I do believe a couple of the Packers likely PS receivers would be intriguing to teams like the Jets who's corp sucks or the Bears who just lost Meredith. And the good thing for them is that it doesn't cost a lot to take a look - just an invite to the PS. With the logjam in GB a players agent would be foolish not to at least suggest to his client there's greener pastures out there. I think GB will lose at least one if not more of the castoffs. And maybe they wouldn't want more than two anyway on the PS.

Players who will be signed from other team cuts has to be placed on 53 roster. Not om the practice squad!
I think that is the rule...
So, it is not possible to sign olayer who was cut by one team on your team PS: Player has to go to 53 roster!

No, Croat, I think that is only true during the season if a team tries to poach a player from another team's practice squad. If the player clears waivers after final cutdowns, the player is a FA and can sign with any Team's PS or 53.

I think they will try to keep 2 of those receivers on the PS. Whether they get them there will have to be seen.

I believe the rule is, once they cut them they have that 20-21 hour window where teams can claim them. After that time is up I believe they are free to sign to anyones practice squad. I could be wrong but thats how I thought it went.

Yeah i agree with you on the Packers WR's. I could see 1-2 of them getting signed elsewhere. I could easily see the Bears and Jets looking for WR's.

Hope the packers sign Ahmad Brooks he will help this pass rush with perry down ect.

I agree, with Perry's injury history and Fackrell so far showing no improvement and Elliott's back issues it should be high on TT list of priorities to sign Brooks and or someone off the waiver wire after cut down.

I wonder if Richard Rodgers survives , he is just an average Tight End , with Bennet and Kendrick's plus the fact that they carry a full back maybe there is no need for 3 tight ends .

croatpackfan's picture

And what if one of those 2 preffered TE will be injured? Who you will sign to your team that have experience playing with AR?

Ross Uglem's picture

zero chance the team keeps two tight ends. zero.

I think RR sticks. One injury to Bennett or Kendricks and all of the sudden you are down a big chip in your offensive arsenal. He's not a great blocker, but he's got great hands and is a good red zone receiver. I too hope they find some additional pass rush with either a Brooks signing or some other addition after cut downs. Brooks somewhat makes sense, especially for a pass rush rotation.

Great article! Thanks for the breakdown. Brice was good too! He's gonna hurt himself hitting like that. This team is deep all over! O- line is the only depth issue but we all know that can change in one game filled with golf carts...
