Packers rookie report: Romeo Doubs On the Packer’s opening drive Sunday, Romeo Doubs had three catches for 33 yards, including a five-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers, the first of Doub’s career. He would finish the game with eight catches on eight targets for 73 yards. In his first career start, Doubs looked anything but a rookie leading all Packers receivers in receptions and yards. Romeo played 55 offensive snaps on Sunday for 89% of the offense and was in for a single special teams play. Of Rodger’s 35 passes Sunday, one in every five passes was ushered toward Doubs. Early…

https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/1574541855441707010 Adam Schefter is reporting Mac Jones will likely miss multiple weeks due to a high ankle sprain from Sunday’s matchup with the Baltimore Ravens. Brian Hoyer will be the starting quarterback against the Packers if Jones cannot play. Hoyer has played for eight teams since breaking into the league undrafted in 2009. Hoyer has had three stints with the Patriots and is the most traveled quarterback in the NFL. Mac Jones declined to answer questions about the injury in a press conference Sunday night. He advised he was day-to-day and that Bill Belichick would answer all injury questions. Hoyer…

His solo pass deflection came during a 2-point conversion attempt that would have tied the game and potentially sent the match into overtime. Tom Brady isn’t a quarterback you want to test in overtime. De’Vondre, on what may have been the most critical play in the first quarter, blew up a screen pass resulting in a loss of yards and a change…

A small person with a big voice, and a bigger impact Packers running back AJ Dillon’s sister Olivia is on a mission to combat food insecurity. It started in the 3rd grade when she noticed one of her snacks missing. Initially, she was upset. When she approached her mother, her mom gently explained that not everyone was as fortunate and that her snack fed a hungry classmate. That simple event opened Olivia’s eyes. She had classmates who were hungry enough to steal food. That’s when Olivia started doing something extraordinary. She brought extra snacks—a simple concept with enormous repercussions. What…

I’m a numbers guy. Numbers tell a story. You can look at a baseball player’s batting average and immediately know if he’s having a good or bad season. Same with football. You can look at the numbers and immediately see a good or bad season. I’m not speaking of wins or losses. There’s a lot more. Broken tackles, yards after the catch, yards after contact, missed tackles, the list could go forever, and it’s constantly growing. Each season someone has a new stat—a new way to measure success or failure.   So let’s get into it.   Two Weeks into the season,…

Monday night Aaron Rodgers spoke about what AJ Dillion and Aaron Jones mean to the Packers and he didn’t hold anything back. “Both of those guys wake up and it’s the best day of their lives.  33 & 28 come into work and it’s a great day every single day. Those are fun guys to play with.  They truly enjoy each other.  Pull for each other.  Very different styles. ” “They are examples of what is means to be a pro.  The ascension year after year and the art of being a good teammate. The Packer’s run game is clicking…

Aaron Jones is averaging 9.1 yards per carry.   That’s 0.9 yards from a first down every time he gets the ball in the backfield.  To put that in perspective, Aaron Rodgers is averaging 10.5 yards per catch.  Jones is fourth in the league in rushing yards with 181 yards on the ground and 50% of Aaron’s carries are resulting in a 1st down. More importantly, his longest carry of the year is 36 yards.  That 9.1 average isn’t deceptive, it’s not being thrown off by one or two breakaway runs.  Take away his longest run of the year–36 yards–and his…

It’s Ugly. Dick Pic ugly. The NFL doesn’t want to talk about it.  In fact, the NFL would prefer you forget the long history of sexual harassment and misconduct allegations against star players.  With the recent allegations against Brett Favre, involving misappropriations of welfare funds, see story here¸ it’s important to cite the long-standing allegations of sexual harassment against Favre while a member of the New York Jets.  I say long-standing due to the light penalty and lack of justice for the victims.    Deshaun Watson, Matt Araiza, and Ray Rice.  Each name brings an incident to mind. Domestic abuse, sexual…
