Should the Redskins Be Worried about the Green Bay Packers?

Should the Redskins Be Worried about the Green Bay Packers?

Aaron Rodgers is back, and that’s cause for some concern for Washington Team: Green Bay Packers 2017 Record: 7-9 (3rd, NFC North) 2018 Record: 1-0-1 (t-1st, NFC North) Outlook: Mike McCarthy’s Packers were 4-1 when Aaron Rodgers got knocked out early against the Minnesota Vikings on October 15. Predictably, Green Bay wasn’t the same after Rodgers’ injury, winding up 7-9 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008. After an injury scare against the Bears in Week One, Rodgers is back, but his longtime favorite target Jordy Nelson (Raiders) isn’t. The Packers still have...

Raiders WR Jordy Nelson not sweating quiet start

Being Derek Carr’s primary receiving target has resulted in a gaudy stat line in each of the Raiders’ first two games. Tight end Jared Cook had nine catches for 180 yards in Week 1. Last weekend in Denver, receiver Amari Cooper had 10 catches on 10 targets for 116 yards. “So maybe I’m in the rotation this week,” receiver Jordy Nelson said, grinning. “We’ll see.” Nelson, the Raiders’ biggest free-agent acquisition this spring, is off to a quiet start with five catches for 53 yards in two games. He was targeted four times at Denver and did not have a catch in the second half....

Silver Mining 9/12: Back to work in preparation for the Broncos, Carr looks to rebound

Raiders news Next Gen Stats Say Amari Cooper And Jordy Nelson Were Open On Monday Night -Raiders Beat Cooper averaged 3.61 yards of separation per throw on Monday which were the eighth- and ninth-highest in Week 1 among 69 starting wide receivers. While Carr played well in the first half, he didn’t look comfortable in the pocket as the game wore on. Doubting Derek Carr? Raiders coach Jon Gruden is still a big believer. Here’s why -Fresno Bee This was a tale of two halves. In the first half, Carr threw for 20 of 24 for 199 yards and one interception. However, by the end of the game he...

Tuesday Cheese Curds: Packers have their third starting receiver in Geronimo Allison

Tuesday Cheese Curds: Packers have their third starting receiver in Geronimo Allison

He held off three rookies in camp and now is emerging as a legitimate target for Rodgers There is a lot to take from the first game of the 2018 regular season for the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers isn’t human (not exactly breaking news), the new offense looks similar to the old offense and the defense could very well be good (rough first drive aside). There is one other storyline heading into the season that has already begun to play out: who will emerge at wide receiver with the departure of Jordy Nelson? If you thought one of the three rookie receivers, that would incorrect although...

Raiders DL Tank Carradine, WR Brandon LaFell inactive against Rams

Receiver Brandon LaFell, signed by the Raiders a week ago, is among their inactive players for Monday night’s season opener against the Los Angeles Rams. That leaves the Raiders with five active receivers: Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson, Seth Roberts, Dwayne Harris and Keon Hatcher. Hatcher caught three touchdowns in the team’s preseason finale in Seattle. Defensive end Tank Carradine is notably also inactive. Carradine spent much of the offseason playing with the first-team defense at the end spot that would have been filled by Khalil Mack. Who lines up in that spot now? The Raiders are...

Raiders season preview and predictions from the Silver & Black Pride staff

Preparations for the Raiders 2018 season opener against the Rams are officially underway today.

Here are the takes of the staff on what they expect from the Raiders this season. Tyler J Smith Record: 10-6 The Raiders have had a ton of roster turnover from last season, but for the most part (with one obvious exception) it’s been positive. The Raiders have added a big weapon on offense in the form of Jordy Nelson as well as Kolton...

Raiders hold five WRs out of preseason finale at Seattle

SEATTLE — A few hours before Thursday’s preseason finale, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was on the field throwing passes to five of the team’s receivers. Those receivers: Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant, Dwayne Harris and Seth Roberts. Like Carr, none of the five was in uniform for kickoff. With the Raiders resting many players who are expected to contribute Week 1, it indicated the basis of their receiver corps to open the season. Cooper and Nelson were roster locks and Bryant was expected to make the team despite head coach Jon Gruden and others saying he had an...

Packers-Raiders Fantasy Reaction: Defense moving up, MVS slows down

Packers-Raiders Fantasy Reaction: Defense moving up, MVS slows down

A quick recap of which Packers players are trending upwards and downwards in fantasy redraft and dynasty leagues. In a late-Friday night preseason game, the Packers took on the Oakland Raiders and former fan-favorite, Jordy Nelson. He was quiet, though, and this article is about what Packer players are trending upwards for fantasy purposes. Some of these players won’t be worth the draft pick in redraft leagues, but if you’re taking part in your first dynasty league or looking to add some free agents, there’s some value in these players. Trending Up Geronimo Allison, WR Geronimo only...

VIDEO: Rodgers throws passes to Nelson during GB-OAK warmups

Derek Carr and Davante Adams also rekindled an old connection this evening in Oakland. Is somebody cutting onions? The Green Bay Packers are in Oakland to play the Raiders in a preseason game Friday evening, but this is no ordinary exhibition contest. All week, much of the attention has been paid to former Packer and new Raiders receiver Jordy Nelson, who left Green Bay for Oakland after the Packers released him in March. Nelson was the only one of Rodgers’ targets who was in the Packers’ organization during his entire tenure as Green Bay’s starter, and the two were close friends. So...

Packers at Raiders first half discussion thread

Have you heard that Jordy Nelson is playing against his old team tonight? If you thought seeing Jordy Nelson in black and silver was weird before, you ain’t seen nothing yet. The former Green Bay Packers wide receiver was released this offseason and signed with the Oakland Raiders, taking him away from his longtime quarterback and good friend Aaron Rodgers. Nelson entered the NFL in Rodgers’ first year as the Packers’ starter, and the two had an impressive ten-year stretch together in Green Bay. Fittingly, Nelson’s new and old teams drew a preseason matchup against one another in...
