Taking Advantage

Taking Advantage

Calm and Collected over Wild and Aggressive. That’s what the Green Bay Packers seemed to have transformed in to over the last year.

Maybe this is the reason it has taken so long to finally get our act together. One thing is for sure, we’re definitely taking advantage of what teams are providing us.

Green Bay has scored 93 points off opponent turnovers this season, which is the most in the league of course.

Green Bay is +7 in turnover differential. That will happen when you are #1 in the NFL as far as interceptions go!

For a 5-5 team that says a lot about the offense AND defense. We take it away on defense and we don’t cough it up much on offense. Looks like we’re finding our identity.

These are not stats to ignore. Quarterback rating is a stat to ignore(which Rodgers is very high in btw, but still, QB rating sucks).

These are statistics of a hungry and intelligent team and coaching staff. A lot of teams get turnovers, but how many take advantage of it? The Packers make it look like an exact science instead of the art form it is.

The more I look at the numbers and our recent performances compared to the Saints, I am becoming more confident we will win.

It’s a two sided coin though because a lot of fans complain about conservative playcalling. They shouldn’t.

Nobody likes to punt the ball, especially with Frost, but looking at these stats give me confidence that when we put the game in our defense’s hands, they will come through more often than not.

Aaron put up better numbers against a better defense compared to Brees vs. the Chiefs. Amazing.  That's it, I'm changing my prediction.

Packers: 48
Saints: 24
