Cory's Corner: 'Snacks' Gives Packers Missing Ingredient

Harrison is exactly what the Packers need to own the line of scrimmage. 

The Packers went 13-3 last year and are a whisper away from the same finish this year.

But Green Bay closed out last season ranked 23rd vs. the run. The Packers are currently ranked 14th against the run, which is an improvement, however, they have been gashed for over 120 yards seven times. 

That's where Damon "Snacks" Harrison comes in. The 32-year-old defensive tackle was claimed off waivers by the Packers on Thursday and could see action on Sunday afternoon when the Packers take on the Bears in Chicago. From 2013-2018, he was an elite run stuffer with 34 tackles for loss. 

"He's going to be a guy who I think can give us a lot in terms of playing the nose," said Packers coach Matt LaFleur on Thursday. "He's a really good run defender and he has been for a really long time. Just excited to get him in the building."

Expecting Harrison to play like an elite defender is a lot to ask. In six games this year, he has played above average and has shown some impressive flashes. But the most important thing Harrison adds is depth. Montravius Adams was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 25 with a toe injury. Kenny Clark is one of the most underrated defensive lineman in the NFL by putting up plenty of production, despite consistently seeing double teams. Harrison's presence should allow some things to open for Clark.

"(I'm) glad that he's here and I get a chance to learn from him," Clark said on Thursday. "He's been a guy that's been playing at a high level since he entered the league and been one of the best nose tackles to play. So, excited to get a chance to talk to him, pick his brain and play with him."

For anyone that thinks this addition isn't a big deal, the line of scrimmage is stressed even more in the postseason. The Packers couldn't win the line and ultimately got torched on the ground to the tune of 285 yards in last year's NFC Championship Game. 

The one thing this team was missing was an edge. You can have talent, you can have experience, but when it comes to the defensive side of the ball, you really need some nastiness. Harrison is the consummate leader that has respect in this league. Harrison only has one career playoff game — oddly enough vs. the Packers in a 2017 NFC Wild Card Game — and he knows the best way to put a stamp on his legacy is by getting fitted for a championship ring. 

The Packers have all the ingredients for a Super Bowl run. Now all they have to do is take care of Week 17.

I think he plays 10-15 snaps--maybe even more--on Sunday. That's about what Brian Price saw v. Tennessee after being plucked off the wire the week before their game, and with Keke out there's a lot of snaps to be picked up.

Spot on Dobber. With Adams gone and Rush unable to even get to the active list, the only reserve DL's the Packers have are Price and Harrison. Harrison will see some playing time. How much will depend on how well he plays, but there is certainly potential for a lot.

Rush was ill last game so they used Price ... for 9 snaps ... in the heaviest line day under Pettine. Yes, Keke played more and us not available, but Lancaster is more comparable. Neither Snacks nor Lancaster are really comparable with the under 300 pound Keke, so while Snacks may play more than Price did (effectively) last week, on past tendencies, Lowry gets more snaps too.

Perhaps Snacks is still noticeably better than Price/Rush/Lancaster. Actually though Price and Lancaster, as used last weekend, were effective. Assuming Rush is healthy, he actually has some upside.

I’d love to be wrong, and LaFleur seems excited, so perhaps Pettine has a plan. If Snacks is what it takes to get Pettine excited by a run stuffing specialist, I guess that would in fact make it this signing well worth while.

We should keep in mind that Snacks had played for the Lions so he has some experience playing against the Bears. Beyond that he has played his entire career in the NFC and has probably faced all of the OLs we can expect to face during the playoffs.

Plus he brings some of the nasty ingredient that our defense has been sorely lacking. He can still make plays
We should note that Reggie White was 32 years old when he was signed by the Packers in 1993. I’m not putting Snacks in the same category as Reggie White but with hopefully no more than 4 games left to play Snacks can still be effective for us. Thanks, Since ‘61

Reggie did not have the history Snacks does in terms of physical issues and was so much more of an athlete. Snacks was a UDFA who became a pro bowler on merit. Four years later he’s not been the same physically. I’d be as happy as anyone if he has a sudden revival. He can still stop the run if we use him. But whether he makes an impact is yet to be seen. Part of that is seeing if Pettine uses him in ways he has not used other DTs.

He may be. I like Price as a reliable depth player anyway. Rush had to be on the roster as a waiver pick up, but at the last game of the season, it doesn’t make any difference to availability in the playoffs as I understand it. We may also see Winn available shortly if we want him to return. Currently both Price and Rush are on the PS squad on Monday.

Let’s hope Snacks plays and we see why they see how they use him and why they seem excited by him as a difference maker over what we saw from Clark, Lancaster, Price and Lowry plus Keke last week. If it’s the same role as Price had last week, he performed well and it’s therefore marginal impact. If they use him in a way that unleashes Clark then I will be happily wrong.

In his prime, he was better than what we got from BJ Raji a decade ago.
The good thing right now is that our ILB play has gotten better with Krys Barnes.
And Kamal Martin has come a long way too.
Christian Kirksey is more depth when healthy.
Oren Burks & Ty Summers are merely used on special teams mostly now. Special teams is our big weakness.

Beat the Bears. That's all that matters this week.
The Bears are going to come out extremely physical. Extremely violent & will be dirty, trying to take our guys out.

Remember, they've cheap-shotted Davante & knocked him out the game with a concussion a few years ago. Treveython. They've also busted Rodgers collarbone.
The Packers better be 100% INTENSE & PHYSICAL & AGGRESSIVE & expect a war.
If not, we'll lose & lose the #1 seed & fizzle out, kinda like what happened in the end of the 2002 season when a win at the Jets in week 17 would give us the #1 seed. We didn't show up, got whipped, then weren't ready for the home Wildcard game & lost at Lambeau for the first time in Packers history, making Michael Vick look great & Favre & the offense looking cold & weak.

This will be no friendly rivalry. They want to kill us.
And their defense with Mack & Hicks, Roquan & Treveython will be seeking KO's from the first play.

Carroll was downright convinced that Harrison had retired on Monday. I’m happy to see Carroll fooled but I don’t think that detracts from the point made. Harrison was no happy being the 4th DT on the depth chart and, in their mind, persuaded them he wanted to retire if not needed.

Add to that Nick (per reports too) he wasn't being used as he wanted to be used (or was unable to adapt to how Seattle wanted their DT's to play).

Some may consider the way that he went about leaving as a shade mercenary, but another perspective is being decisive - as surely both parties had conversations on expectations whilst he was doing workouts - and at 32 and 9 years of playing at a high level I'll give him that he knows how he can be best used.

...... I see this as an addition that will strengthen the team and a small measure to counter the overall team strength loss due to the injury to Bakh.

Egbertsouse has it right. He isn't saying snacks can't help the Packers. He's questioning his integrity, his character....which is valid. You people give him a thumbs down for that? Gimme a break.

Read, and learn something.....
.
Seattle picked up Snacks to help out with injuries. When Mone came back off of IR, Snacks was made inactive. Snacks got upset (mad). He went to Carroll and asked for his release. They gave it to him. So instead....of being a team player, instead of waiting for his number to get call. HE GRABBED HIS MARBLES AND WANTED TO GO HOME.
.
Snacks quit on his team, his teammates, and the #12's. It's that simple.
.
Snacks tweeted he was done with football. But then he signs with the Packers. What motivated that move? My only guess is...he wants some revenge on the Hawks if the Packers face them.

To say (think) he is a team player, is having your head buried in the sand.

What I'm looking forward to is how much this frees up Kenny Clark. Between Harrison and Clark there's going to be some real ass whooping going on at Solider Field Sunday and moving forward through the Playoffs. I bet Montgomery doesn't even SNIFF 100 yards this weekend!

Yes, he is on the back side of his career and had a few nagging injuries, thus I believe one of the reasons Detroit sent him packing. Of course, I question why Seattle stopped using him.

So, as I think thru it more and do some research on his past there doesn't seem like much of a downside. If he was a cancer then I'd be against this, but after reading the attached article it seems like he will be GREAT locker room addition and one who might mentor some of the young DL prospects we have.

I know this was a while ago, but you are who you are and things don't normally change too much. He blamed himself to the whole locker room after the game to Pittsburgh for the loss. By the way, in that game, he had 9 tackles and led the team in that category. Now, that's leadership!

For starters the guy has maybe one of the all-time great nicknames in the NFL, how can you not want him on the team?

Possibly the only meaningful question to be asked is whether his addition makes the defense better or worse, and it’s hard for me to to guess the latter. Anything, I mean anything to help the D will yield dividends this year for the playoff run. Do nothing and regret not taking a chance or sign someone who might help in ways tangible and others not as easy to measure i.e. relief to double-team on Clark.

Can you imagine Madden announcing the game with Snacks in the line? Priceless.

Happy New Year to all, GO PACK GO!

One big thing this signing does is give the Packers another option at NT to let Clark move up or down the line. I expect the Bears will counter the Packers' heavy looks with zone read option and RPO plays, so it would be helpful if they could get Clark off center to try to get into the backfield to blow those up.

Failing that, it may help get Clark off the field for a few more snaps to keep him fresh.

This is a signing everyone wanted to see before the season started - now we are getting a Snacks who has stayed in game shape, but who has played minimally (and as such should be fairly fresh) just in time for a playoff push.

Allows a full DL line rotation, lets Pettine play his 3-5 base (which he plays 5-2 presnap) covers the gaps in run fits and as you say, will allow the SS to play in the box without fear. It's a win win win for the defense. This is what winning organizations do in playoff runs. What is wrong with that...

Risk vs reward. I applaud taking chances and pursuing an acquisition vs conservative status quo based on assumptions and foregone conclusions like a lot of posters here seem to relish. LIke one author said in an earlier article; if he prevents just a couple big plays in a game, it can change the momentum and influence the game. One or two big run plays can ignite an offense with momentum. Key 3 and outs in the early quarters can bog down that offense, and allow GB to run up a 2 TD lead....and that has a big effect.

Seems wise to play him heavily this game, and see what he has in the tank; and whether worth playing him in the playoff games. Only way to know is to give him ample playing time with a strong sample of work.

To think that the Packers front office, would not do their due diligence on a veteran like Harrison, is damn silly. I said this before, but this Packer GM is one of the most cold blooded personnel guys in this game. (Yes, he may be a bit slow in getting rid of his own guys. But the number of Packer cuts pickup by other teams shows how much Gute is thought of by other GM, player pro guys etc) By any measure picking up a veteran DL of quality like Harrison is a win for this organization in this playoff run. And that is all there is to it.

Yep, nice to have a big load in the middle just in time for the playoffs. I must say it's nice to have a veteran experienced DL instead of some scrap heap retread like the bargain bin items that Ted sometimes would go after.

I hope snacks sees 2-snaps, trots off the field, pass break up and punt, WE SCORE, REPEAT. All game long.

I understand everyone’s apprehension for all in excitement, but we need to realize the strategic move here. From a factual standpoint, Snacks has SOMETHING left in the tank. He was moved down on the depth chart due to players coming off IR and in Carrol’s favor. He wanted more time but received the opposite. If any of us were in a position of opportunity to offer your specific talents at whatever juncture of your career, you’d make the most critical decision of your remaining years to better yourself and the organization that could produce immediate results. We had one good defensive game against a team that was thought to be superior. We came out on top. I consider this a move of magnitude on many different levels. We got Rush back on the practice squad. WIN. We acquired a veteran presence to impact and mentor the young bucks and be that “piece” to help solidify a position group in need of a boost. WIN. Now we have an opportunity to continue the ascension of our D so that come Playoffs, they can contribute and create that “2010” momentum to a team that could use a shot in the arm after a tough blow. Go Pack Go!

Well now we can maybe put some real beef up front on 3/4 and short. Don’t know the stats but our win % on those downs defensively seems poor
