Packers: Rashan Gary can dominate in full-time role

With Za’Darius Smith out a ‘while’, the Packers need Rashan Gary to step up. Rashan Gary has shown plenty of potential in his first two seasons, particularly down the stretch in 2020. Now, the Green Bay Packers need him to become a focal point of the defense. With Smith out at least three games on […] Packers: Rashan Gary can dominate in full-time role - Lombardi Ave - Lombardi Ave - Green Bay Packers News and Fan Community

Previewing Packers v. Lions By the Numbers: Can week 2 be a get-right game?

Photo by Rey Del Rio/ With only one week, a lot of numbers are out of whack, but did we learn anything in week one? The Green Bay Packers host the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football in week two. To preview the matchups in this game, it is still far too early in the season to learn really anything from cumulative numbers like EPA-per-play or DVOA, so that’s not going to be the focus of this week’s By the Numbers preview. Instead, the focus will be more on how the Lions match up with what Green Bay tries to do, and vice versa. An Unorthodox Receiving Corps and a...

LaFleur: Packers’ Za’Darius Smith headed to injured reserve with back injury

LaFleur: Packers’ Za’Darius Smith headed to injured reserve with back injury

Photo by Larry Radloff/Icon Sportswire via How long is a while? No less than three weeks, as Z heads to IR. Za’Darius Smith’s strange 2021 has taken yet another turn. The Green Bay Packers’ best pass-rusher over the past two years has had a bizarre two months, starting training camp on the physically unable to perform list with a back issue. He then came off PUP briefly to practice late in camp, but was shut down again before doing enough work before week one to play in Sunday’s season-opening loss to the New Orleans Saints. In the middle of all that, Smith...

Packers Friday Musings: In rebound Week 2, defense must keep Jared Goff mortal

Packers Friday Musings: In rebound Week 2, defense must keep Jared Goff mortal

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports After Jameis Winston turned in a god-like performance last weekend, the Packers’ defense needs to keep Jared Goff from following suit. There were few positives in the Green Bay Packers’ 38-3 drubbing by the New Orleans Saints last Sunday. From start to finish, the Packers looked flat on all sides of the ball, even on a neutral field, as Aaron Rodgers failed to look like an MVP in his return to action. If there is one great way to rebound from a disappointing season opener, it is to defeat a divisional opponent on home turf. The...

Friday Cheese Curds: No panic in Packers as they prepare for the Lions

Photo by Sam Greenwood/ The tape from Week 1 has been either flushed or set aflame and now Green Bay’s focus turns to their first divisional contest of the year The Green Bay Packers’ Week 1 blowout loss was stunning. From players and coaches to their passionate fan base, everyone was flabbergasted as to how the team came out so flat against the New Orleans Saints. For a team expected by most to compete for a Super Bowl, this was a performance that triggered a few alarm bells. Apparently none of those were in Lambeau Field. There is a good reason for that.

Packers: No, it is not time to give up on Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers were handed a huge loss on Sunday afternoon in a 38-3 beatdown against the New Orleans Saints.

Green Bay Packers have won their past eight home openers

The Packers haven’t lost a home opener since 2012. Eight in a row.

Week 2 NFL Picks: Will Packers bounce back as big favorites against Lions?

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports APC feels good about Aaron Rodgers and company getting back on track on Monday night. It was a brutal week one for the Green Bay Packers, and it wasn’t much better for some of APC’s contributors in our game picks. Just two of our 12 writers who submitted straight-up picks last week hit on more than 50% of their games, while just one of seven was better than 50/50 against the point spread. This week, we are hoping for a rebound, both for the Packers and for our performance picking games. Green Bay will get to return home, however, for...

Week 2 Q&A: What do Lions fans think of Dan Campbell?

Photo by Amy Lemus/NurPhoto via We check in with Pride of Detroit to see how they’re feeling as the Lions prepare for the Packers. After three unsuccessful seasons under the staid Matt Patricia, the Detroit Lions are in the midst of a culture change. New head coach Dan Campbell is a swaggering tower of machismo and it translates to his press conferences, which have been full of interesting quotes and observations. It’s still an open question as to whether Campbell’s approach will translate to the field, but the Lions played the 49ers pretty tough in Week 1, so we...

Will Packers bounce back? Predicting the next three games

Predicting the Packers’ next three games after their Week 1 loss. Is it time to R-E-L-A-X or P-A-N-I-C for the Green Bay Packers? Their defeat to the New Orleans Saints was by far the worst of the Matt LaFleur era, perhaps more worrying for their approach to the game than even their performance.
