Confessions of a Polluted Mindset 2020 - Packers Nix the Niners

The Weekly Packers Brain Drain from Jersey Al.

Aaron Jones: I wrote a bit about the return of Aaron Jones in my most recent "3 plays..." post and how he leap frogged Kevin King in the resigning priority list for me. There's just some intangible thing that happens when he is in the lineup together with Rodgers and Adams that propels this offense to much greater heights. Tom Silverstein put it rather well in a recent post when he wrote, "Subtract one of the three and the remaining two are still good players, but there’s something about having them all together that elevates coach Matt LaFleur’s offense to a different level. It’s almost as though it’s a chemical reaction and if all three ingredients aren’t present it’s a different compound altogether.

MVS on Davante: Marquez Valdes-Scantling was effusive in his praise of Davante Adams, among other things, called him "the best wide receiver in the NFL, and it's not even close."

Offensive Line Musical Chairs: Continuity is the key to producing a top OL group. That's been an NFL axiom for as long as I can remember (which is a LONG time). Well, this Packers team is turning that on it's head and saying - hogwash! To have two starter-level linemen who can play three positions without a noticeable drop in performance wherever they line up - that's almost unheard of. Every team has a "Mr. Versatility" who can fill in where needed, but they're almost always backups and emergency starters. With Elgton Jenkins and Billy Turner, the Packers offensive line can sustain injuries and just keep plugging along. Hell, Jenkins even played three different positions in the same game Thursday Night. And at no point have they seemed to miss David Bakhtiari, arguably the most important player on the OL. The Packers just throw guys wherever they're needed and the OL keeps rolling. Evidently, we've all been lied to for many many years.

More Jenkins: Was this a good draft pick?

Montravious Adams: Adams has graded out very well in tackling and run defense the last four games, where his snap count has been 28,23,6,26. I railed about this at the time, but how in the world does he see only six snaps against the Vikings as Dalvin Cook was ripping through the Packers' defense? Adams is a big body that can move (4.87 40) as well as hold his ground at the LOS. I'd like to see him continue to be in the rotation on early downs or obvious run situations. He's been a disappointment overall, but as he plays out his contract year, maybe he's found some motivation and the Packers can get something useful out of him the rest of the way,

Tramon Williams: The Ravens have signed Williams for one last rodeo. I'm glad he found a good home.

"but how in the world does he see only six snaps against the Vikings as Dalvin Cook was ripping through the Packers' defense?"

Umm...Mike Pettine is the DC Al. Enough said.

Jenkins is one of my top 2 Gute draft picks yet with Jarie Alexander being the other. I shudder to to think where that O-Line would be without Jenkins AND Billy Turner who before the season started was a player many thought should be cut for salary cap space next year because of his play last year. Turner is no different from any other offensive player who might have needed time to gel in MLF's offense.

Personally I love it when these FOOLS who make their lists leave Adams off their Top 5 or Top 3 WR's in the NFL. Keep it up FOOLS!!!

I was REALLY hoping Gute would bring back Tramon Williams. He's always been one of my favorite UNDER appreciated Packers I can remember. The Packers don't win SB 45 without Williams in 2010 throughout the ENTIRE run. I can still hear Joe Buck saying "He just got burned" as Williams was running back a pick 6 for a TD just before the half BLOWING the game wide open!

Good luck T Will!!

When the Packers beat the Saints they didn't have Michael Thomas. That does improve the Saints offense. But the Packers offense put up 37 against them, in the Super Dome.

The Packers Bucs game is somewhat explainable. They were rolling early and then 2 turnovers and it just completely changed the game and gave the Bucs all the momentum. The game flipped at that point.

I really don't know what happened with the Bucs in the Saints game. The Bucs just got destroyed.

No body is a priority unless your name is Rodgers. It's just to late to sign Jones. Pay Defense, draft Offense. And as this class of FAs miss Time. I wouldn't sign any of them now. Give me the Comp picks. The priority is to stop the run. BG needs to put the money there! My Feeling is None will make a difference when Rodgers is gone. Love is your future. BG pissed away golden opportunities.

Al, your comment about resigning Aaron Jones triggered my thoughts about our free agents in general. It has become increasingly clear (the 2020 draft and the lack of in-season FA signings) that Gute and the Packer FO are not "all in" on 2020 but are rather looking to the future. This seems to imply the Packers will focus on resigning young (second contract) players who will be the future of the team rather than aging players who may not finish their next contracts. This bodes well for Jones, King and the other young players and not so well for Bahk and Linsley. I suspect the Packers will find the cap room to resign both Jones and King and perhaps one or more of the RFA's as they will carry about $6 million over from this year into the 2021 cap year and there are a couple of veteran players (Lowery, Kirksey) who could get cut to make more room.

I think both Jones and King will be at least somewhat reasonable due to the injury issues both have had. Every team is going to have some cap issues this year due to its sharp decline and free agency signings will be reduced in number and contract level. Both of those things will work in the Packers favor for Jones and King.

Linsley's problem is this will be his third contract and he will be over 30 for most if not all of the contract. The Packers very rarely sign O-linemen to third contracts because of health/availability issues. Current example is Bulaga who signed with the Chargers and has barely played this year. That's $10 million of salary cap the Chargers have had little to no value from and that is fairly common with big guys over 30. Despite his excellent season this year, I just don't see the Packers retaining Linsley because of the health risks.

I suspect M. Adams is a huge puzzle to Pettine and the defensive staff. They have tried pumping him up (remember the hoopla about his off-season success prior to the 2019 season?) and developing him to little avail and then when it appears they had given up on him, he suddenly plays better. Not sure if his better play is related to his contract year or if the light has come on or both, but he will now become a conundrum for Gute this off-season. Is M. Adams the next Micah Hyde or Demarious Randall? Should the Packers resign him or not?

I hope he plays well the rest of this year because the Packers seriously need some run defense help, but given the lack of cap space in 2021, I hope the Packers don't resign him. I guess I just don't believe his current play is what will be there long term.

Players like Montravis Adams and E. St. Brown show potential but also show so many inconsistencies. Playing time is probably based on practice and behaviors prior to games. You often hear about guys learning to be a pro and I wonder if some of these guys just don't get it. Maybe these guys are immature or lazy or pot heads. Either way, the Packers need more young guys to step up

Aaron Jones:
I like Williams, and so far I like what we have seen from Dillon (small sample size). But there is a HUGE difference going from Williams to Jones. Jones has more explosive speed, and better vision. This offense is a LOT better with Jones in the backfield. Also he really threatens defenses. He can gain yards that are not given to him.
I don't think there is a better QB-RB-WR combo right now then Rodgers-Jones-Adams.

MVS on Davante: I agree with MVS.
Speaking of MVS, I am hoping the 49ers game is the game that gives him a boost for the 2nd half. He had that concentration drop but then after that he had 2 TD catches. The first was a bomb, and the 2nd was probably my favorite play of his. When he made his move to go back to the outside the DB grabs his facemask, he gets away and makes the nice sliding catch. I'm hoping with that and the combination of Lazard coming back, it will ignite a great run in the 2nd half.

Offensive Line Musical Chairs:
Jenkins is simply a stud! I wish we could have 5 of him! Turner has really impressed me this year. He has really stepped up from last year. I was worried about our RT going into the season. And I was worried about our backup LT. So far we haven't had any worries. Though, I will admit I'm happy we didn't have to go against Bosa in San Fran.

More Jenkins: Was this a good draft pick?
Some people have complained about Gutekunst's draft picks. There are 2 absolute studs he has taken in each of his first 2 drafts. Alexander and Jenkins.

Montravious Adams:
"how in the world does he see only six snaps against the Vikings as Dalvin Cook was ripping through the Packers' defense?" This was my huge complaint against Pettine. I can't understand why when its clear to all of us that Adams has been one of the best run stopping DL the Packers have this year, why he got 6 snaps against the Vikings. Adams been disappointing in his first 3 years. This year though he has been much improved. Its time he starts getting more reps then Lancaster.

Tramon Williams:
I'm happy for Williams! I still wish he would be in Green Bay! But I am happy he is now with a super bowl contender. I would have hated to seen him go to the Cowboys or some other crap team like that.

My take was that M Adams had a toe injury. Those can linger far beyond the original return. Thus I’ve suspected that he has been on a snap count. When he has played he has played well.

That said, in very limited playing time Winn has also looked effective but remains inactive while Lowry continues to be ineffective or worse. Last game we went a little heavier and Lowry’ snaps went down. That meant we had at least 2 big men competent in the run game a lot more often even if we had an OLB as the third. The result seemed to be far more effective at the line and a boost to those behind. I’m hoping that that is not just a flash in the pan.

The O line has been impressive except in one game. That game gives me pause in the celebration. All players and units have bad days, but great ones don’t have days like that. Until they hold up against a similar approach from a similarly talented group, that’s going to be a big asterisk in my mind on their overall performance.

I agree, the offensive line play has been very positive considering the shuffling. However, against weak opponents the run blocking has been ok and pass blocking while much better still has not given Rogers the time that the PFF would claim. If we were that good our rushing attack would have given us the win against a weak Viking's defense.

Al, This is always my favorite article read. I agree that A. Jones just has that "it" factor when he's in the lineup. I remember one game last year or the year before where he had one (1) snap and bounced off the line and took it to the house for the game winning TD! There is just something about him being in there that makes this offense seem twice as deadly. Glad T. Williams found a home this season. GPG.

By now the Packers should have some sense of how much $ Jones will expecting in his next contract. They have been in contact with his agent so numbers must have come up by now. It’s a matter of how the contract is structured assuming that the Packers are not astronomically outbid by another team.

Other teams have already been bitten for signing RBs to huge contracts, e.g., the Jets with LaVeon Bell. Plus with the probability of a reduced cap in 2021 other teams may not be looking to spend huge bucks on an RB when they have a chance to find one in the draft.

Our OL has performed admirably given the injuries they have been dealing with. Kudos to the players and the OL coaches. Maybe our OL coaches should also be coaching the DL on how to stop the run.

Nice job again Al. Thanks, Since ‘61

The part I'm curious to see is if the cap goes down, will teams be willing to pay as much for any RB?
I think there is a chance the Packers could sign him to a decent deal. I know a lot of players take the money, and I can't blame them. But just with how Jones is and his back ground it wouldn't surprise me if he took a lesser deal to stay in GB.

I wrote on APC that as the Jets are set to enter the 2021 year with $110 Million in cap space, they could probably buy 8 to 10 starting caliber free agents. And not be even close to cap hell in 2022.

Draft Trevor Lawrence and buy the rest of the offense and some spare parts for the defense.

If you sign a big RB contract at the expense of an O-Line contract you are robbing Peter to pay Paul. Great O-lines make great running backs. I wouldn't put big money on an RB particularly one that is prone to injury.

The real problem for the Packers is that we are not drafting well enough to replenish these players with cheaper, younger versions. Too many high round misses and flyers that don't pan-out put us in a position to pay too much for own or pay for free agents.

There is nobody on the OL due contract but BAK and Lindsley. BAK is said to want maximum last payday, not team friendly deal. He is as good as gone. Lindsley is as good as gone. His younger replacement is on the team. Turner has been doing well replacing BAK. Believe me that is a done deal. The packers have 2 real deal weapons.
D. ADAMS and A. JONES. Everyone else are a notch or two below in talent that get the job done. D. Cook is better than Jones but they don't grow on trees or every team would have one. If the CAP is lowered as stated there will be a lot of good players looking for a job next season and that would be a bargaining tool.

...D. Cook is better than Jones but they don't grow on trees or every team would have one...

I would argue that very good left tackles are way harder to find than good RBs. As much as everyone is applauding Billy Turner for filling in at tackle, he would be a big step back from BAK. I would hate to see us further handicap Aaron Rodgers by degrading the line and make him run for his life in these final years. On both fronts (RB & LT) the Packers haven't done a very good job of drafting significant talent to replace the costly alternative.

Our normal OL has multiple TE's and they help block even for BAK. The deal is BAK is not interested in a TEAM friendly deal which takes a bigger pot of money and takes a guy who last year LED THE NFL in touchdowns. Sorry but, he does keep AR clean a little better pass blocking but he is not an offensive weapon that scores TD's ever. If he was 25-26 it would be different. Rodgers does not need an OL to hold blocks for 10 seconds and run around in circles until his receiver uncovers anymore. This is not MM's offense anymore. We have 2 true weapons on offense DA and AJ...that's it.

I think the plan going forward is to keep Rodgers protected and have young, economical guys at the skill spots. It is working great so far, we’re 19-5 and have one of the leagues top offenses.

We will replace Bakhtiari with a draft pick, or a more affordable vet FA. We’ll put Jenkins at center and play Runyon and Patrick at guards and we’ll still have Turner and Wagner. This will still be a good line next year without Bakhtiari and Linsley, who we just plain can’t afford.

Agree. Gute is moving the majority of money from older offensive line to the Defense and that is why they aren't coming back, just like Bulaga. It's old money and he needs new players to replace older guys who cost too much.
Gute will keep younger players and pay the ones with upside and get FA as needed.

I think this is reasonable and plausible. That said, Bakh and Linsley are both playing at elite levels. The offense scored 23.5 points/game in 2018 under MM and 23.5 points per game under LaFleur in 2019. This year the team is scoring over 30 points per game. There is little doubt that the replacements for Bakh and Linsley will be downgrades. The improved offense could well be simply better understanding of LaFleur's offense as the skill position didn't change, and even the OL is reasonably familiar.

Bakh has missed time and Bulaga is gone: I have no doubt that their replacements are downgrades. Perhaps this offense does not need really fine players at LT and RT.

We are likely to find out.

Since 61’, I see next season as being described as “the year of the Moneyball”.

The combination of:
1) COVID induced reduced salary cap > just how much??
2) a reasonable number of teams with large amounts of cap space
3) up to 8 teams already over the cap (can’t even afford draft picks without jettisoning players)
4) a relatively strong ‘class’ of off contract players

Next year is not a good year to be a free agent if you want to be paid now. I see a lot of 1 and 2 year contracts or back-ended contracts.

I agree that the cautious packers will be chastened by the le’veon bell and Zeke Elliott contracts - irrespective of how good jones is...... and I think that if Jones listens to himself and not just his agent he will realise that he needs a scheme, o-line and qb to compliment his rare talents.

I see a lot of back-loaded contracts. Very good to elite players are still getting paid top dollar (see Dalvin Cook at $12.5M, LT Ronnie Stanley and CB Marlon Humphrey at $19.5M, WR Robert Woods at $16.5M and RB Alvin Kamara at $15M).

I see no reason why Aaron Jones and Bakhtiari won't get paid. There might be some bargains in the somewhat above average older veterans, guys who can't command long term 4 or 5 year deals, and that's because teams can't finesse the cap hits in a 2 or 3 year deal as well.

I agree with the RB theory. It's obviously why they took Dillon. We have found that the OL and QB threat can make RB's and all though AJones is special and an it player, the cost benefit ratio isn't favorable in any sort of Top 5 RB Contracts going forward with Jones. Don't forget about his injury history.
"By now the Packers should have some sense of how much $ Jones will expecting" IMO it's still a Ask for the Moon contract time vs Team friendly deal. These agents will not sign team friendly deals "until"
1) The Player insists
2) The player test the Market and the difference between team friendly and open market is palatable by the player.

Like 90% of contracts (educated guess) nothing happens until the end of a time term.
FA window, Training camp. OTA,Season, Option, Compensatory draft pick, Workout Bonus, etc....

At this point Bak and especially Ajones are going to be closer to 2021 camp.

Does anyone know if the success of the O-line is scheme-driven? I really don’t know if it is, but this line seems so much better in MLF’s system than in the past. Again, Xs and Os or Ellingtons and Joes? It may also be that Gute and his scouting department are just flat out better at drafting O-line than other position groups. If our line play is scheme, I would be OK letting Bahk and Linsley walk. If we consistently draft well there, I would also let them walk, spending the $ on D-line. Finally, I bet they already know what they are doing with AR. I suspect that if Love shows them anything and confirms their draft-day opinion, they let the line talent walk, Aaron is traded after next year, and they do a mini rebuild with all of the draft picks and comp picks.

The scheme is the main thing. We also integrate a lot of TE blocking concepts as well as having WR's blocking along their routes on run plays at every level when performed well results in explosive plays or first downs. Also we use our RB's as receiving threats and WR screens, jet sweeps w/ Ervin, and motion. I also think the OL due contracts walk. Rodgers? hard to say. dependent on Love showing something. I do believe this offense can be run well with a lesser QB, but Rodgers does make it considerably better and I'm sure much better than Love ever would be able to. This scheme is helping Rodgers get the ball out faster which is better for him and his health. Last year were throw aways every 3-6 plays, this year first downs instead. I like it.

Nothing intangible about Jones when he is on the field; his running, receiving, and scoring makes our offense dangerous. I don't think his production can be easily replaced. I've read constantly that it's not wise to give big money to a RB, but this may be an exception.

King and Greene: Great when they're out there, but....I think we need to draft a replacement for King (hopefully someone also with good size); and sorely-needed depth at the hybrid position since it seems to be an important cog for our defense. I just hope that when we do our defensive drafting this time, we select players in the upper rounds that are reasonably ready to step in a fill a specific position without waiting years for them to develop and make an impact.

Aaron Jones is certain to get FA offers from teams that have a LOT more money than us. This is the downside of signing FAs to big contracts....you don’t have the money to keep your own. He was a Day 3 pick and we got some really good games out of him, but I’ll be really surprised if he’s a Packer next year.

Jenkins, the Oline: This is one of the better Olines we’ve had since the merger. I, too, remember the ancient maxim of continuity, but it doesn’t look like it matters this year to the Packers. Does anybody know how many different line configurations have been used? Jenkins was drafted early for an interior lineman, and he’s been a real good player for us. Jenkins and Turner have been good additions, and it looks like it was a good idea to keep Patrick around.

Adams: Like Coldworld, I thought he had reinjured his foot. A lot of times those foot injuries feel fine until they get stepped on by some huge guy wearing cleats.

Tramon: I have no doubt that Tramon will be a big help in practices and meetings. He knows stuff. Anything that keeps our secondary on the same page is a good thing..

Al, regarding the o-line, I’ll agree with you on the points of versatility and general depth. I’m just a little hesitant given the relative strength of schedule (or more appropriately softness of schedule), particularly against teams with strong defensive fronts - this is actually one part of the upcoming bears games that I’m keen to see. I’m hoping\expecting to see a stronger showing than against the Buccs, which could go some way to demonstrating that they are ready (at least offensively) for the playoffs.

Adams was just back from injury and his timing and some of Rodgers throws were not spot on. Lazard was still out and Rodgers was forcing the ball to Adams too much. ML needs to game plan other players as priority targets over Adams so others are not left disengaged in a game when they rarely get a look from him even if it means putting him on the sideline a few snaps. It's bad enough several times Tonyan has not been hit in stride and omitted a walk in touchdown. We are going to have to spread it around more to get everyone up to speed and in sync. It's hard, Adams is such a bad ass when not double and triple teamed. It will be interesting how the OL handles the Bears "D". That will be a good test especially if BAK is still out.

Was really hoping for one more final rodeo for Tramon Williams in a Packer uniform. Was always a great competitor!

Gute must have thought his age (37) was a factor and decided to play the year with the young CB'S on the roster. Sullivan and Jackson are only 24 and Hollman is 26.

He knows the defense and keeps himself in great shape. We have had injuries in the secondary. He's older but half season is relatively cheap cost to get ready for a playoff push especially since Gute sat on his hands at the deadline....AGAIN.

Jones: 46 games, 33 touchdowns, 3600 yards from scrimmage, 4 fumbles, 5 yds avg run, 8.3 yds avg pass. He’s a positive force on this team. He’s more valuable than any running back the packers have had since Ahman Green and probably more. Pay him.

I agree, I just hope he isn’t asking for Cook money..But just think of his stats if he was actually used when Mike Mcthegamehaspastedmeby was coach..
