Wednesday Cheese Curds: Packers are ready for Aaron Jones’ return

Post by panxing18 » Wed Jan 16, 2019 6:50 am

An under-covered aspect of a given team’s season is how much the roster changes from week to week and month to month.Between the return of Aaron Jones from suspension and the gradual recovery of both Oren Burks and Josh Jones Kentrell Brice Jersey , the Packers stand to get three significant players back this week, changing the complexion of both their offense and defense in significant ways.What each player actuallyWhat each player actually contributes is almost beside the point; that they’re available at all changes the decision-making process significantly on both sides of the ball.How will Aaron Jones integrate into the offense? Will he get significant snaps right away? If so, in what capacity? Who will have to leave the roster to make room for his return? How will Oren Burks affect the packages Mike Pettine calls? Will he take snaps from Blake Martinez or work alongside? Will Josh Jones be enough to up the game of a lackluster safety group?All these questions come from the most minimal of roster decisions, but they have huge consequences for the team as a whole. These and other small roster moves will be very much worth watching as the remainder of the season plays out. Time for Packers to turn Aaron Jones loose in running game | Packers NewsWith Jones back on the active roster for Sunday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein doesn’t think he should be in a complementary role. He thinks Jones is just what the doctor ordered to jump start the running game and hopes Mike McCarthy agrees.What You Might’ve Missed: Blocks from the backs | Packers.comTo get a worthwhile playing time, Jones is going to have to take snaps from either Jamaal Williams or Ty Montgomery. That shouldn’t be an issue from a production standpoint, but he’ll also have to show he can pass block. As this review by Mike Spofford shows, both Williams and Montgomery have already shown they can.No worries now for G-Mo: Packers’ Geronimo Allison emerges | ESPNBetween the arrival of Jimmy Graham and three explosive rookie receivers, Allison spent a lot of the offseason as a presumed bystander in the Packers’ offense. But two weeks into the regular season http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/a ... ari-jersey , he’s shown exactly how valuable a cog he can be.To take the next step, Packers defense needs improved safety play | Packers WireOur Peter Bukowski argued this week the Packers should explore a trade for Earl Thomas, but whether the Packers go that route or not, it’s hard to argue the safety group has been anything special. For the overall defense to improve, the Packers have to get better on the back end. Finally, you know how any time a player of note changes teams a photoshop of that player in their new jersey appears online immediately? This is how that photoshop comes together. Pretty amazing how he did it in only two minutes! While we wait an extra day to see the Green Bay Packers play, there is still plenty of football going on around the NFL on Sunday of week six. In fact, tonight’s prime time game sets up to be one of the best matchups in the league this season.The 5-0 Chiefs have been blisteringly hot on offense this season, averaging 35 points per game and only dipping below 30 once all year. Their defense is largely a mess http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/a ... ing-jersey , allowing a whopping 5.8 yards per carry (last in the league) and ranking 19th in passing DVOA. They will be facing Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots, who come in on a long week after finally looking like the team everyone expected over the last two weeks, including a convincing win over the Colts on Thursday night last week.That’s the big matchup today, but there are some decent under-cards during the day. Look to Panthers-Washington or Bears-Dolphins in the early batch of games if you need some interesting matchups.EARLY GAMESAll games kick off at 1:00 PM Eastern/12:00 Noon CentralPittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati BengalsPaul Brown StadiumCincinnati, OHCBSIndianapolis Colts at New York JetsMetLife StadiumEast Rutherford, NJCBSLos Angeles Chargers at Cleveland BrownsFirstEnergy StadiumCleveland, OHCBSBuffalo Bills at Houston TexansNRG StadiumHouston, TXCBSCarolina Panthers at WashingtonFedEx FieldLandover, MDFOXSeattle Seahawks vs. Oakland RaidersWembley StadiumLondon http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/a ... son-jersey , EnglandFOXArizona Cardinals at Minnesota VikingsU.S. Bank StadiumMinneapolis, MNFOXTampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta FalconsMercedes-Benz StadiumAtlanta, GAFOXChicago Bears at Miami DolphinsHard Rock StadiumMiami, FLFOXAFTERNOON GAMESLos Angeles Rams at Denver Broncos2:05 PM MT (4:05 ET)Mile High StadiumDenver, COFOXJacksonville Jaguars at Dallas Cowboys3:25 PM CT (4:25 ET)AT&T StadiumArlington, TXCBSBaltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans3:25 PM CT (4:25 ET)Nissan StadiumNashville, TNCBSSUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALLKansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots8:20 PM ETGillette StadiumFoxboro, MANBC
