I distinctly remember this offense being at its finest this season when it was running the 21 player set which made multiple dilemmas for the defense. These numbers suggest that both Jones and Williams never shared the field on a single occasion (I might be mistaken). They were running the 21 more when #17 was injured as they needed the additional weapons on the field. I wonder why they’ve gone away from this?

Not just the Smiths. Fackrell played 50% of the snaps.

With rookies, you hope for the best but you have to understand that they’re just out of school, they’re young, they don’t know much, they’re living alone for the first time, they’ve got money.......

If your team is so weak that you need big contributions from rookies then that’s not good. If you’re good enough that you can give your rookies time to develop, that’s good.

The defense is playing well together. We’re clearly one of the better defenses in the NFC.

LOL no we are not one of the better defenses in the NFC. We are not one of the better offenses either. The fact is that we are statistically speaking, not supposed to be more than a .500 team right now. But we've stayed healthy, played well in the RZ on both sides of the ball and gotten turnovers. And we've won a lot of 1 score games as a result.

The team will have to be MUCH better in 2020 to get to the same record. The regression-animal is charging our way.

I think that says more about the offense than the defense. Only 3 of the bears drives went for over 50 yards. The offense got 1 first down on it's final 5 drives. That kind of play lends itself to the Bears getting more opportunities to run plays. Bears only scored on 3 of their 13 drives.

I think It's ok to be displeased if Gary gets < 20 snaps. He needs to play to grow.

When he's on the field he's who I watch. (unless Burks is there but that's almost never). I see a guy consistently getting push. I hope he develops some moves this off season, and the Smiths will be great to learn from.

I was not happy with the Gary pick. But he's a Packer now as I am sending him all the positive energy possible.

The argument that he was a bad pick is twofold; there were better players out there, and that's been easily proven as this season has gone on. The second argument being, you've just signed two free agent DE's, you retain Fackrel, you're desperate for a WR, and you draft another DE? How would McLauren or Hollywood Brown or Deebo Samuel, or Metcalf or A.J. Brown look in this offense instead of bums like Allison and MVS? This has been obvious since day one of the season and only now are posters here finally recognizing that. Gute terribly misjudged the Packer receivers, and so did everyone here.

I was one of them because there was statistical proof that two young receivers with an improved O line could blossom. However, it doesn't serve any purpose now because some of the same people that complained about the pick probably predicted a losing season.

Allison took more than half the snaps at #2, but MVS only got 7 snaps, including his alligator-arm miss on the bomb.

Lazard plays well when he’s on the field. Watch his blocking on these runs. He catches what he gets his hands on. I also think Kumerow should get motr opportunities.....the guy had a great run after catch.

MVS is the only one that can stretch the field. Yes he blew it. But how many shots has Rodgers taken down the field to others? Only to blow a 1st down. The light has to go on. It's to early to give up on MVS. I'll agree that Lazard is deserving! But by not allowing MVS to redeem himself. The field will shrink Rodgers effectiveness. Lazard is No NFL #2 Wr. The injury bug hasn't hit him yet. The packers must work harder with MVS this year!. LeFluer and Rodger's can't keep putting players in the Dog House. Lefluer must keep sending MVS out there. He's shown No insubordination. (Like Monty) Rodger's may not trust him. But this offense needs him.

Unfortunately, you are absolutely right. Without him we have a big hole in our arsenal. He clearly has confidence issues, but if we are seriously looking to the post season, we better try harder to get him turned around. Without it the one dimensional nature of the WR corps is simply too obvious for teams to be fooled.

It's clear that MVS high ankle injury is effecting him. That he can not cut or plant is clear in the video for weeks now. So MLF limits him to go or skinny posts. He may be slightly better than Adams after Adams HAS in 2014, but I bet by not much. That he has not reinjured it is pure dumb luck so far. By all rights the Packers should have IR him a good two months ago. Just shows the how the loss of ESB has hurt this WR group. On that field MVS never should have been out there. Give the young man credit, he's playing on pure guts alone. That the Packers are trying out WR finally acknowledges that fact.

Did not know the ankle is in the hands, that would explain the drop. It seems to me that after the drop he got benched and it will stay that way until someone else plays their way off the field the way he's done.

I would agree I think it was Gary‘s best game. He’s starting to show better moves than just stutter step and think that’s going to fake out an offense of tackle. The stutterstep just takes up a half a second and that is enough not to get you to the quarterback in time. Good game Gary hope you continue to growAnd become the dominant linebacker we drafted you for. Thankfully he has time to grow as the Smiths are doing great.

Wow. The packers have survived another game (ugly), except not very ugly; another game with no significant injuries! Look at the snap count on the Oline! The preferred starters!
Same with Safeties, and CBs.

For all the packers unfortunate injury plagued seasons going back to 2010, maybe we should consider that no win is an ugly win if there is no significant injuries. Packers have been very healthy this year (and moving statistically back to the mean in the number of team number of aggregated lost starts due to injuries).

It's been incredible this year on the injury front. I think Gute intentionally paid up for guys with proven histories of health (smiths/amos) and that's helped some. I'd like to see him continue that philosophy in future drafts. Seems like in the past GB always struggled with injuries, partially because they drafted guys with track records of injury in college.

This is music to my ears and beauty to my eyes given how hard it is to play a full season in the NFL without suffering a major injury to the big boys up front. If we have a chance this has to be one of the major attributes going into the playoffs.

Sure we have our core players on offense but it all starts here, many of the other substitutions are made to keep opposing teams off balance or to exploit a perceived weakness. On defense due to the physical demands of certain positions and depending on down and distance, substitutions are required to give your team the best opportunity to succeed getting the ball back.

But due to having to keep your QB upright and healthy, plus contribute to our wonderful new running game, offensive line play means a whole lot moving forward.

OFFENSE Snap Counts

B Turner G 100%
B Bulaga T 100%
D Bakhtiari T 100%
E Jenkins G 100%
A Rodgers QB 100%
C Linsley C 100%

To many snaps:

Again Allison is receiving to many snaps.

Not Enough Snaps:

Gary - He recorded a sack. He only played 18 snaps. While Fackrell played 42. I think They need to even out those numbers a little more.

Sternberger/Tonyan - They need to get these guys on the field a little more then what they are doing. Now it maybe more based on opposing defenses, but these guys should be getting more snaps and take some from Allison.

Its hard to complain about snap counts when they win games. I just think this offense needs less Allison as he has been way to inconsistent catching the ball. The positive is that Lazard has surpassed Allison in the amount of snaps he takes.

Jimmy Graham only played 42% of the snaps, not out there on first downs as they are finally defaulting to Marcedes Lewis here. The Jimmy Graham experiment seems to be over as Sternbergers snaps slowly start to increase...there is no way he is around next year for a $12 million cap hit...

Also, for you Darius Shepperd fans, aren't you glad the Packers gave him a 53 man roster spot and cut Lazard subjecting him to waivers?????????? That worked well. Now the true #2 .........Lazard Truthers unite
