Bengals Stun Packers With Big Fourth Quarter

Packers mystified by run of hamstring injuries

Jones and Dalton hooked up later in the drive, this time for an 11-yard TD to cut the lead to 30-27 after a blocked extra point. The Packers marched back down the field when the Bengals defense stepped up in the final minutes. On a second and six from the Cincinnati 35-yard line, Domata Peko and Carlos Dunlap sent the Packers back six yards with a sack. Green Bay initially looked to pick up the 12 yards it needed on third down, but the Bengals challenged and Randall Cobb was ruled down for a gain of 11 yards to force fourth down. Trying to put the game away, Green Bay elected to go for it and that’s when things went wrong. Franklin was stripped by Michael Johnson and then Reggie Nelson scooped up the loose ball. Nelson only made it six yards before he fumbled as well, but Newman was in the right place and picked up the ball and took it to the house for a 58-yard defensive score and a 34-30 lead. The Packers slowly moved their way into Cincinnati territory, but Rodgers’ final throw fell incomplete on fourth down from the Cincinnati 20-yard line. Dalton took a knee to keep the Bengals perfect at home this season. Cincinnati will now hit the road next week for a division showdown on Sunday in Cleveland (1-2).

NFL Power Rankings

For the sake of their running game, its probably a good thing the Packers dont play again until Oct. 6 against the Detroit Lions . Even rookie Johnathan Franklin , who rushed for 103 yards in Sundays loss at Cincinnati and finished the game as the only available running back, has an injury. He hurt his foot on the final drive, although he returned after missing only three snaps. Franklin came on in relief of James Starks , who left in the second quarter because of a knee injury. Starks started in place of Eddie Lacy , who missed the game because of the concussion he sustained the previous week against Washington. Fullback John Kuhn (hamstring) also was inactive. The Packers offered no details about their injuries on Monday, but Lacy expressed optimism he would be back for the Lions game even though he has to get medical clearance. Lacy went through a pregame workout at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday that he said was just to see if I ran and got my heart rate up, what I would have. Since I wasnt cleared, I had no intention of playing, Lacy said Monday, but I have a bye week to still get right. Starks said he was waiting for test results but believes he avoided a serious injury.

Packers still like Marshall Newhouse

Roughly 100 percent of football coaches will say that, just as exactly 100 percent of football coaches are going to be second-guessed on any call as pivotal as the one that factored into the Packers being 1-2. It’s something all coaches have to live with. They need rhinoceros-ply skin and goldfish memory to deal with that part of the job, from the general public, the internet-spawned masses of professional and semi-professional reporters and even from in-house. Although the Packers would not say it, it certainly looked like McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers got into it Sunday on the sideline regarding play selection. It is a high-wire, adrenaline-junkie skill that comes through years of trial-and-error experience. It’s easy to retroactively say that McCarthy should have let Rodgers get those 6 inches of southern Ohio real estate — and yeah, he should have — by instructing him to follow Evan Dietrich-Smith’s lead. So where did McCarthy gain a such a confident resoluteness to make a decision and stick with it, no matter what? Twenty years ago, McCarthy got his first NFL job with the Kansas City Chiefs. His boss was Marty Schottenheimer, a Hall of Fame-level coach whose sketchy playoff record subjected him to more second-guessing than a Wisconsin meteorologist.

Green Bay Packers: Let the second-guessing begin

At this pace, Cobb will catch 112 passes for 1,547 yards and 11 touchdowns this season if he can stay healthy. Besides Cobb, legitimate candidates to replace Ross includes a trio of rookies:running back Johnathan Franklin, cornerback Micah Hyde and even safety Chris Banjo. Because of the massive pile-up of injuries though, Cobb should be the Packers kick returner until the team gets healthy. In the offensive backfield, running backs Eddie Lacy (concussion) and John Kuhn (hamstring) arent quite 100 percent. The defensive secondary is in even worse shape, as they have been hampered by injuries to cornerbacks Casey Hayward (hamstring) and Jarrett Bush (hamstring), along with safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring). The injuries in these position groups is one of two reasons why Cobb should be returning kicks for the Packers instead of Hyde, Franklin or Banjoonce the team returns to action in less than a couple of weeks. Once the offensive backfield heals up and at least two-thirds of the injured defensive backs return to the field in October, then it would be a good time to think about takingCobb out of kick-returning duties. Cobb is simply the most talented and dangerous weapon the Packers possess. Fans better hope and pray the Packers get healthy with the week off.

Packers could have running back options

The Bowie, Md., native went to a rookie minicamp with the Washington Redskins in 2009, but knew his chances of getting a call back were slim. But he doesnt have the same feeling now with the Packers. The workout went well, said Hill, who also is the Blizzards all-time leader in interceptions (20) and tackles (253). I thought they were pleasantly surprised at what I was able to do. We did some basic combine testing and drills, and I just left it all out there. They really didnt give me a time frame because theyre on the bye week. They just told me to be ready because you never know what will happen. The good thing is Im already in town. Hill has made Green Bay his year-round home since 2011. In addition to making electrifying plays with the Blizzard at the Resch Center, Hill works as a personal trainer at Xperience Fitness and is in his first season as an assistant coach for the Green Bay Southwest football team. (Page 2 of 2) They were excited about it, Hill said about telling the Southwest players at practice Tuesday.

“I think luck is really the No.1 factor in this. Between youth, position, body type, time of running, you’re still going to see hamstring injuries. I don’t think you can pinpoint any particular thing.” To Kuhn, that includes fatigue, a factor considered by some to be the top indicator for injury. “I pulled my hamstring after I played 19 plays,” said Kuhn. “So I definitely don’t think it was fatigue.” Running back James Starks has hurt his hamstring before. On Monday, he had just had his learn more injured knee examined and was waiting for results. Hamstrings are such a pain for NFL players that when he was asked what is worse, a hamstring or knee injury, Starks said: “It depends on how severe it is, I think. “All the guys work pretty hard to stay healthy. Injuries happen all the time in the NFL. It’s a tough league, strenuous on your body and we do all we can.

Randall Cobb Should Returns Kicks for Green Bay Packers — For Now

Last week, McCarthy was asked if he would still consider inserting Newhouse. “Yeah, and they know it, too,” he replied. “You got Marshall Newhouse standing Authentic Aaron Rodgers Jersey right there.” Although Newhouse was beat out in training camp after opening as the No. 1 right tackle, McCarthy holds him in high regard. “It’s amazing how this works,” said McCarthy. “I don’t know if Marshall’s ever looked this good as far as practice. He’s been outstanding. Best I’ve seen him.” Newhouse, who turns 25 Sunday, has made 28 starts at left tackle and three at right tackle. His level of performance wasn’t always pretty in the past but it never reached the point where the offense couldn’t function.

Packers Vs. Bengals Week 3: Aj Green, Jordy Nelson And Randall Cobb Could Breakout As Aaron Rodgers And Cincinnati Secondary Is Great Matchup

Jordy Nelson out for Packers training camp after knee procedure

Like Us on Facebook more news aboutRandall Cobb Green Bay lost in the opening week to San Fran, but now they appear to be clicking on offense after dropping some major yards on the Redskins. Aaron Rodgers won yet another offensive player of the week award after tossing almost 500 yards to go along with four touchdowns in the win over the Redskins and the biggest matchup of the day might be Rodgers and the Packers receivers against the secondary of the Bengals. Over the past couple years the Bengals have been strong in the back end, but they will have their hands full with Jordy Nelson, James Jones and the always electric Randall Cobb. The Packers appear not to have lost a step since letting Greg Jennings go, as Randall Cobb is leading the team with 15 catches for over 230 yards and two touchdowns, while Jones and Nelson have also been producing. The team is ranked second in the league in passing yards per game, while Jones is averaging over 16 yards per catch and has 11 receptions for over 170 yards, while Nelson has found the end zone four times already while racking up 200 yards receiving on 10 catches. The team has enough weapons to spread the ball around and with Jermichael Finley also on the offense and James Starks emerging from the backfield, the Bengals could be in for a long day. On the flip side, Cincy is no slouch on offense either, as they have a ton of skill players that could breakout on Sunday, including Andy Dalton, Giovani Bernard, AJ Green as well as tight ends Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert, who has made an impression already as a rookie. Bernard scored two touchdowns on Monday night and has started to come on in the running game, while Green has been putting up some great numbers in two games, making 15 catches for 203 yards and two touchdowns. The Packers defense has not been great against the pass so far this season, but part of that is the fact that the Redskins aired the ball out on Sunday to try and get back into the game.

But in a recent interview, Nelson reveals that part of his secret is that too many opponents get hung up on the fact that Nelson is, well, white. When asked by the Green Bay Press Gazette if racial bias is a factor in Nelson’s on-field success, he replied: “Honestly, I think it is.” Nelson and his teammates believe that, with so few elite white receivers in the league, opposing players are likely to dismiss Nelson’s abilities on the field. “As receivers, we’ve talked about it.” Nelson told the Press Gazette . “I know [cornerbacks coach] Joe Whitt tells me all the time, when all the rookies come in, he gives them the heads up, ‘Don’t let him fool ya.’ That’s fine with me.” Packer teammate Greg Jennings said, “He uses that to his advantage.” “It’s not because he’s the white guy. A lot of it has to do with the fact that guys look at him say, “Okay, yeah, he’s the white guy, he can’t be that good.’ Well, he is that good.” “It’s easy for someone to say, ‘Oh yeah, he’s like one of those other white receivers,'” Jennings, who is black, told the newspaper.

Stereotyping the Packers’ Jordy Nelson

Procedure to minimize impact of nerve IanRapoport(@RapSheet) August 6, 2013 After dealing with pain from the nerve, Nelson hopes to finally end issue for good and be back 100%. James Jones had similar issue & is fine IanRapoport(@RapSheet) August 6, 2013 The Packers start the 2013 campaign on the road against the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 8, which would give Nelson just over a month to recover from this procedure. Even though he struggled with injury and had a down year in 2012, the wideout still contributed with 49 receptions for 745 yards and seven touchdowns in 12 games. Nelsons breakout year came back in 2011, when he caught 68 passes for 1,263 yards and 15 touchdowns. The Packers won 15 regular-season games that year, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers captured the NFL MVP award. When healthy, the 63, 217-pound receiver is a perfect downfield threat in the Packers high-powered offense. Nelson possesses the speed and athleticism to beat his defender deep and haul in the long ball. Unfortunately, his injury woes hindered his ability to stretch the field and create separation last year. Green Bay fans and fantasy owners were hoping that Nelson would come back fully healthy for a rebound performance in 2013, but that seems optimistic given the latest news.

18 at 11:47 a.m. ET by Justin Welton According to Duke Bobber of, Jordy Nelson was not on the official inactive list which means he will be in uniform Sunday against the Detroit Lions. Nelson leads Green Bay in reception yards with 535 and yards per reception with 13.3. With Greg Jennings continuously on the shelf, having Nelson available for Sunday’s game against Detroit is great news for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. —End of Update— UPDATE: Friday, November 16 at 1:13 p.m. ET by Alex Ballentine The good news continues to pour in for Green Bay and Jordy Nelson fantasy football owners.

“The crowd can tell you a lot of things, especially when the quarterback’s running,” Nelson said. “You just have a feel for it.” He cut his route short. He turned to the sideline. And before the ball arrived, Nelson planted his feet inbounds. Nelson never looks down to see if he’s in; there’s no time. Six years in, that’s his sixth sense. Run your route right every time and you should be inbounds every time, he says.

Packers’ Jordy Nelson skilled at sideline catches

They see what they see. I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing and keep grinding.” Matthew Stockman/Getty Images Aaron Rodgers has thrown 31 touchdown passes this season, including nine to Jordy Nelson. I would think opponents are now fully aware that Nelson is not a stereotypical white receiver, if there is such a thing. He can run past anyone, as suggested by his average of 18.7 yards per catch over that 16-game stretch. But there is only so much that can be done while also defending against receiver Greg Jennings , tight end Jermichael Finley and the rest of the Packers’ offense. Sunday, the Buccaneers fruitlessly searched for ways to handle Nelson while not losing sight of the Packers’ so-called heavy hitters. Nelson is a starting-caliber receiver whom the Buccaneers mostly tried to defend with backups.

Jordy Nelson is good to go for Week One


He had 66 total yards on three receptions. Nelson followed up his performance last week – 130 yards and one touchdown – with a multi-touchdown performance, keeping his value high for a second straight week. Fantasy impact: The knock against Nelson through his career to this point has been his brittle health. The receiver has been good when healthy over his time in Green Bay, but a series of injuries have kept him from being a truly top-tier receiver. If he can stay healthy, as he has through two weeks this season, Nelson’s value should stay high.

Packers’ Jordy Nelson says his race helps him succeed

Per McCarthy, Nelson will miss the rest of the Packers offseason program after undergoing a “procedure” on his knee. The Packers coach is “hopeful” that Nelson will be ready for Week 1 against the 49ers but the timing of the injury is certainly concerning. Nelson played in just 12 games in 2012 — and just 10 of which were starts — with a hamstring injury, though he did still manage 49 catches for 745 yards last season. That was somewhat of a disappointment after a breakout year in 2011 when Nelson caught 68 passes for 1,263 yards while emerging as one of Aaron Rodgers favorite targets. McCarthy did say that left tackle Bryan Bulaga is still not officially ruled out for the season , despite reports, but the team was waiting on another medical opinion to confirm his status. Still, for a team as likely to challenge for a Super Bowl run as Green Bay, there’ve been an awful lot of injuries (even minor ones) to major players pretty early in the season.

Jordy Nelson gives Packers, fantasy owners pair of touchdowns

Even with the recruitment of 2 former 49er QBs, because we are super desperate for a win, we shall fall short once again. We have no O-line, Lacy cant gain positive yards, and our defense is dismal at best. Clearly you are not particularly smart nor are you a Packer fan. Even the most cynical Packer fan wouldnt see desperation in the backup QB process, would recognize the O-line is at worst unproven and that Lacey did most of his running in pre-season with a backup quarterback leading teams to put 9 or 10 men in the box. Congratulations though, your inane post achieved its goal. I responded.

Fantasy Football: Game Of The Week Preview

Aaron Rodgers

In Week 1, Cincy ran the ball 21 times compared to 34 snaps in Week 2’s win over the Steelers. Eddie Lacy left last week’s game against the Redskins with a concussion. So, as of Wednesday, Green Bay was still unsure who will start behind Rodgers. In his absence, James Starks filled in and ran for 132 yards and a score on 20 carries. With Cincinnati only allowing 62.5 rushing yards per game this season, I dont think it matters who the Packers trot out there on Sunday, their running back isn’t worth a fantasy start. FANTASY 15 PODCAST Fantasy contributor John Halpin hosts his fantasy football podcast three times each week. When Aaron Rodgers is slinging the rock and the running back situation is in flux, any and all receivers should be in your starting lineup this week. Even with James Starks rushing for 132 yards against Washington, two Green Bay receivers (Jones and Cobb) finished with over 100 receiving yards and Nelson scored twice. As for Cincinnatis top receiver, Green is a must-start each and every week. Tight end Jermichael Finley , Jermaine Gresham , and Tyler Eifert For the second-straight game, Finley caught at least five balls for 50+ yards and a touchdown. In a PPR league, that is a minimum of 16 points which is plenty enough for a start. Like the Bengals rush attack, there are two tight ends battling for playing time. Against the Steelers, Gresham and Eifert finished with 66 receiving yards.

Aaron Rodgers throws for 480 yards, 4 TDs as Packers rout Redskins

Packers (Kate McGinty/The Enquirer). When the Packers come to Cincinnati on Sunday, it will be their first visit here since 2005 a and their second-ever visit to Paul Brown Stadium. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers might see a familiar face on the field, though: Fellow Golden Bear Marvin Jones Jr. Wide receiver Jones played for the Golden Bears between 2008 and 2011, when he ranked in the top 8 in catches, yards and touchdowns in Bears history. He finished his career among the schoolas all-time leaders in receiving yards, receptions and receiving touchdowns. Rodgers played for the Golden Bears, too, from 2003-04. Heas the schoolas all-time pass efficiency leader. During Beyond the Stripes earlier this week, Jones talked to us about watching tapes of Rodgers playing in college. aHe was smaller, obviously, because he was younger a but he was the same Aaron Rodgers,a he said. aThe plays that he makes now, theyare pretty much the same plays he made in college.a The game starts at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers tenure demands appreciation

Aaron Rodgers is one of them, otherwise he wouldn’t be in the headline, but I’ll let you read on and find out the rest. MVP Projection 1. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning: Manning didn’t throw seven touchdown passes against the Giants on Sunday, but he was still impressive. In the win over his little brother Eli, Peyton threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns. Thanks to that performance, Peyton is now the first player in NFL history to throw at least nine touchdown passes with no interceptions through the first two weeks of the season. It seems like read this the words ‘Peyton Manning’ and ‘NFL history’ are probably going to be used a lot together this year. 2. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers : Rodgers threw for 335-yards and three touchdowns against the Redskins on Sunday — in the first half. Washington obviously didn’t do a discount-double check on its defensive game plan. Rodgers’ 813 passing yards leads the league while his completion percentage (69.3) and yards per attempt (10.29) are both top 3.

Aaron Rodgers

Whenever we visit him at training camp, Rodgers insists on bringing out the backup quarterback or some other unsung hero, to share the publicity. It goes a long way. Rodgers’ one “yeah, but” has been his history against the San Francisco 49ers , having lost to them to open the 2012 season , then again in the postseason , and once more to open this season. Even so, he refused to use the “h-word” when asked about the hatred and bad blood between the Niners and Packers . San Francisco is a more complete team than Green Bay and has a better chance of winning the Super Bowl this year. But don’t let that distract you from Rodgers’ greatness. The Packers will have a chance for retribution — because of Aaron Rodgers . Though the matchups suggest the Bengals might win in Cincinnati this Sunday, I’m picking Green Bay — because of Aaron Rodgers . There’s nobody better in the league right now.

“We were able to catch the ball well, had yards after the catch and we were able to run the ball better than we have in a long time,” Rodgers said. Rodgers’ 480 yards passing tied a franchise record set by former teammate Matt Flynn on Jan. 1, 2012, against the Lions. Sunday was also the first time that the Packers had a 400-yard passer and a 100-yard rusher in the same game. Rodgers had his big game after waking up with a stiff neck. “I was hurting pretty bad. I wasn’t feeling great pregame,” Rodgers said.

Only As Good As His Backup Aaron Rodgers’ big day against the Redskins was only good enough to tie his former backup, Matt Flynn, for the most passing yards by a Packers QB in a game.

Bengals v. Packers: Marvin Jones talks Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers has won 19 of his last 20 starts at home for Green Bay. He’s completed 68.7 percent of his passes in those games with 54 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions. Couple that with a Redskins team that gave up the fifth-most Fantasy points to quarterback Michael Vick Week 1, and Rodgers has a recipe for success. Since becoming the team’s starter in 2008, Rodgers has 18 games with at least 300 yards passing and three TDs. That is second most in the league over that span. Rodgers is a top-three Fantasy quarterback for Week 2 of the season against a struggling Washington secondary. He can be considered a must-start for all Fantasy owners. Aaron Rodgers finds the end zone three times in opener by Igor Mello | (9/8/13) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers turned in an impressive performance as he reached the 300-yard mark and found the end zone three times in Week 1 at San Francisco. Rodgers found Randall Cobb, who stretched out after the catch to break the plane for a 5-yard score in the first quarter. After throwing an interception to Eric Reid on a pass intended for Jermichael Finley, Rodgers didn’t lose faith in his tight end as he hooked up with Finley for a 12-yard touchdown strike with 16 seconds remaining in the second quarter.

Locker Room Buzz: Green Bay Packers

He said he woke up with a stiff neck after spending Saturday night at the team hotel. Its not the hotels fault, said Rodgers, who matched a franchise record with 480 yards passing. Photo op: Just before Rodgers headed to his postgame news conference, he pulled out his phone and took a picture of several players being interviewed nearby at their lockers. Pat on the back: Asked about his block on running back James Starks 32-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, left guard Josh Sitton said: I had a great block. I should get all the credit for that. Colorful character: Tight end Jermichael Finley looked like he was wearing the same bright reddish-colored pants he did after last weeks loss at San Francisco. Same color, but not the same pants, Finley said. I dont think Id wear the same thing. When asked to describe the color, Finley said: I dont even know what color they are; its like pinkish-reddish.

Green Bay Packers – TeamReport

However, the emergence of James Starks in Week 2 makes the potential loss of Lacy a little easier to swallow. Still injured are Casey Hayward and Morgan Burnett. The secondary once again struggled against Washington, and getting these two starters back would instantly help. Unfortunately, Hayward is still expected to miss at least a month ,and Burnett could also miss extended time. The Packers have their bye week in Week 4, and Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel reports that Green Bay may hold Burnett out in Week 3 to give him the bye week to get to full strength. While it isn’t ideal for so many key players to be missing time, the team should be just fine if it can get healthy after the bye week. What Must Improve Much like last week, the area that needs to improve most is the pass defense.

Packers 2013: Fans are happy in Green Bay, less so in Washington D.C. Travel Deals Louis Bien, SBNation Posted: Monday, September 16, 2013, 2:24 PM The much anticipated matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Washington Redskins quickly turned into a laugher. The Packers’ offensive line turned in an excellent performance, paving the way for Packers’ first 100-yard rusher in 44 games and giving Aaron Rodgers enough time to tie a franchise record with 480 passing yards. Green Bay led 31-0 in the third quarter before Washington was able to respond. The Redskins scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to make the score closer than perhaps it should have been. Packers blog Acme Packing Company was very happy about the offense. Rodgers’ numbers speak for themselves, but he also had tremendous support from his line, wide receivers and an exemplary performance by forgotten running back James Starks. Evan “Tex” Western explained after the game that if there was a negative takeaway for the team, it was the lack of a pass rush : For all the offensive awesomeness on display yesterday, the pass rush really disappointed me. Sure, the Redskins have a great left tackle in Trent Williams , but how does Clay Matthews not even really get a sniff of RG3 all day? On rare occasions, a blitz caused Griffin to rush a throw, (I’m thinking of the Brad Jones inside blitz and Davon House’s sack) but I don’t remember seeing a single play in the second half where he was under serious duress, nor did I see much pressure provided by a simple 3- or 4-man rush at any point.

Power Rankings: No. 5 Green Bay Packers

Rodgers attained two single-game team records, tying former backup Matt Flynn for the most passing yards and having a completion percentage of 81.0 that eclipsed predecessor Brett Favre’s previous standard of 76.7 for a quarterback with at least 40 pass attempts. WR James Jones set career highs in Sunday’s 38-20 victory over Washington with 11 catches and 178 receiving yards. Jones didn’t have a catch in the Week 1 loss at San Francisco. The Packers played without top safety Morgan Burnett for the second straight game because of a lingering hamstring injury. RB James Starks proved to be a godsend as Eddie Lacy’s (concussion) replacement.

Green Bay Packers – PlayerWatch


5 Green BayPackers September, 17, 2013 Preseason: 5 | Last week: 7 | Power Ranking since 2002 It took only one week — and a convincing 38-20 win over the Washington Redskins — to get the Packers right back where they started in the preseason Power Rankings. One thing the voters could not ignore, even in the Week 1 loss at San Francisco, was the fact that quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense have been explosive.

Rodgers doesnt read it presnap and move Starks over to block. As a result, no blocker is on that side and Josh Wilson goes clean through for a sack. With the Packers forced to punt from their own 13, the Redskins would come away with great field position for once, starting near midfield. Two passes underneath the single safety moved the ball to the Packers 32. On 3rd and 6, Griffin faces another blitz and tries the bread-and-butter slant to Garcon.

Packers Will Have Tough Cap Decisions To Make


“If they don’t, they’re going to have to pay him a lot more.” Cobb has been compared to Seattle’s Percy Harvin, whose average salary of $12.8 ranks third at the position. Meanwhile, Jordy Nelson will be unrestricted at the same time as Cobb when his below-value contract expires. He ranks just 34th among wide receivers with a $2.55 million average. Besides Raji, Shields and Finley, other starters with expiring contracts bound for unrestricted free agency are Ryan Pickett, James Jones, John Kuhn, Evan Dietrich-Smith and Johnny Jolly. A year ago at this time, the Packers had just seven players set to become unrestricted free agents. “Those are Ted Thompson questions,” said Jones. “Whatever they do, they do. I can’t worry about no contracts.” Cap room can materialize quickly. By cutting Jeff Saturday, Woodson and Bishop, the Packers gained $16.95 million of space. The reductions for Hawk and Crosby added $2.74 million. One could identify five players with 2014 cap salaries of more than $2 million that could be sacrificed.

Packers-Redskins: 5 things to watch

“We didn’t do the things offensively that we needed to do as a group.” Packers coach Mike McCarthy was more open about the challenges he faces attempting to stop Griffin. “He’s a mobile quarterback that has the ability to stretch the defense,” McCarthy told the team’s official website. “He has the ability to make plays in space and he can make all the throws. In any Mike Shanahan offense, it starts with running the football.” The Redskins, though, didn’t do that very well Monday either, much to the disappointment of Shanahan. Their 74 rushing yards were far below last season’s average of 169.3 that led the NFL. Alfred Morris carried 12 times for 45 yards and a touchdown, fumbling on the first offensive play and combining with Griffin on the botched pitch in the end zone that led to a safety on the team’s third possession. When asked about the performance of the running game, Shanahan sarcastically asked, “What running game?” Washington also had issues trying to slow Philadelphia’s no-huddle, up-tempo offense, something it also should get a glimpse of from Green Bay. McCarthy described his team’s no-huddle offense as “up and down” in last week’s loss. Four touchdown drives combined for 287 yards in 8 minutes, 21 seconds, but their remaining eight drives included going three-and-out five times.

Redskins-Packers Preview

But the more you start getting vertical and the more people you blitz, the more seams there are, defensive coordinator Dom Capers said. The key is being able to catch a guy like this if he pulls it down and takes off running. I would think coming off this injury, he still ran with the ball Monday night. It was mostly scrambles. It wasnt where they majored in the read-option, but they have that element in that they can run against it anytime and you certainly have to be prepared for it. And hes very capable of extending plays and letting receivers uncover down the field. A big part of their offense is taking the vertical shots. They run a lot of very deep routes and if you dont get some pressure on them, he can sit back there and launch that ball down the field. Ball security:Eddie Lacy should have known better. As admirable as it was that he wanted to get an extra yard or two against San Francisco last Sunday, the end result a fumble was avoidable.

But I dont think any team wants to start off 0-2, especially one that has designs on accomplishing grand things in the postseason, which, if healthy, the Redskins should have. I also think it would depend on how they look against Green Bay. If they play well and lose a close game, it still suggests theyre on a certain path (no moral victories, but more about being headed in the right direction). If its an ugly game like it was for nearly three quarters Monday? Then it suggests other issues. That would be difficult for them to swallow. But the one thing Ive seen with this group, last season and in the previous few, is that they are resilient. Their mindset is a good one for a 16-game season. I would think if theres any formula for stopping the Green Bay offense, everyone would use it. But is there a theme to when teams are able to slow this attack? Demovsky: For about the past year and a half, teams have played the Packers predominantly one way — keep both safeties back and dare them to run the ball.

“If you keep it at that pace – 50 plays a half – it’s like a hundred a game or so,” Rodgers said. “That’s tough, but I think you can have success doing it that way. We’re just going to continue to do what Mike and the coaches lay out for us, and when we get the opportunity to do no-huddle, we’ve got to convert.” The Packers hope to be at full strength on offense for Sunday’s matchup with the Redskins but can’t be sure after two starters – tight end Jermichael Finley and left guard Josh Sitton – had injuries come to the fore after the opener. Both players didn’t practice Wednesday. Finley is dealing with a sore toe, and Sitton has been beset by tightness in his back. Finley insisted Wednesday that he will play Sunday, even without the benefit of possibly a day of practice this week. McCarthy suggested Finley won’t be back on the field until perhaps Friday. Sitton said he could play even if he doesn’t practice this week. “I’m an O-lineman – back problems are going to happen,” he said. “I’ve always kind of had a little bit of back issues here and there, so it’s just something that’s flared up.” Green Bay did get starting safety Morgan Burnett back on the field Wednesday, albeit on a limited basis, after he missed the opener because of a nagging hamstring injury. “As far as his chance to play in the game, I don’t know yet,” McCarthy said after Wednesday’s practice.
