Packers Podcast: Julio Jones Runs Wild Through Green Bay Secondary

On Tuesday I joined Bart Winkler of K107 in Fond du Lac for our weekly Green Bay Packers game review. We take a look back at the Packers' 43-37 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football, including the second half defensive collapse when the Packers defensive backs failed to corrall wide receiver Julio Jones. It wasn't all sour, however. We also talk about Aaron Rodgers' typical terrific performance and the Packers' standing in the NFC playoff chase.

How much of a cap hit would GB take if they just cut Shields and kept Hayward at a lesser price...say 4-5 Million?

Double that.

Jones destroyed Patrick Peterson a week ago, so cutting Shields talk is silly.

Julio is a great receiver who will make big plays against any team. The difference is he makes one or two against most teams, not play after play and making our D look silly. If he hadn't hurt his hip, the Pack very well could have lost this game.
The Bills have a real defense to deal with and Orton can pick apart our D with passes to his very speedy receivers too.
Clintic D just looks lost out there and is not making the plays you expect from a 1 pick.

" If he hadn't hurt his hip, the Pack very well could have lost this game."

I disagree.

The Falcons scored a TD on all three 4th quarter drives, and each drive took less time than the previous. If I remember correctly, J. Jones didn't get hurt until they were near the goal line on the second 4th quarter drive, and the Falcons scored a TD a few plays later.

The final Falcons drive took 2:22 and ended with the 3rd TD of the quarter to pull within 6. After that, they failed at the onside kick and the Packers were able to get two first downs to run out the clock.

I suppose you could make the argument that the Falcons might have been able to score even faster than 2:22 with Jones in on the final drive, and therefore make it harder for the Packers to run out the clock, but you can't discount the fact that the Packers marched right down the field and were in easy field goal range after the Starks run. If the Packers can't run out the clock entirely, they can run it damn close and kick a field goal to make it a 9 point game with little time left.

Can Jones play defense?
