Who is the Packers biggest Jenga piece for 2017?

by spark 0 Comments

The Green Bay Packers are no stranger to losing big players to injury over the last few years. In 2013, Aaron Rodgers missed half a season with a broken collarbone while Randall Cobb was out much of the year due to a broken leg. In 2015, Jordy Nelson tore his ACL in the preseason, while cornerback Sam Shields went down with a concussion in week one last season, never returning to the field.

Packers biggest Jenga piece

Each of those injuries can be compared to a game of Jenga. Rodgers, Nelson, and Shields all were pieces that, when removed, caused a cascade that took down huge portions of the team and caused major problems during their absence.

With this in mind, we decided to examine the roster and find this year’s biggest Jenga piece (excluding Rodgers, who is the obvious #1 choice). Which player would cause the Packers the most headaches if he were lost for the season? Here are a few candidates:

WR Jordy Nelson

In 2015, we saw what happened when the Packers lost Nelson; the receivers suddenly couldn’t get open and the offense as a whole bogged down, causing Aaron Rodgers to rely on his scrambling ability before any of the receivers could get separation from the defense. The Packers found a way to earn a Wild Card berth in the playoffs at 10-6, but they did so after scuffling through a 4-6 record in the final ten games and finishing just 15th in the league in points scored.

However, the 2017 roster looks very different from that of 2015. Davante Adams and Randall Cobb appear to be 100% heading into this season, and the addition of Martellus Bennett provides a valid receiving threat for the deep middle of the field. This Packers team would be much better-equipped to handle missing Nelson for a long time than the 2015 team was.

LT David Bakhtiari

Bakh has locked down Aaron Rodgers’ blind side for the last four years, and losing him would be brutal for an offensive line that has counted on him as a rock throughout his four-year career. He missed some time in 2015 also, and the Packers scuffled trying to find a replacement for him; they started Don Barclay and Josh Sitton there with no success before JC Tretter was able to have a solid game in the Wild Card round.

Like Nelson, however, the 2017 squad would be better able to replace an injury here. Second-year tackle Jason Spriggs has failed to impress at guard, but left tackle is his natural position. He would be the first man off the bench for either tackle spot, and expectations hold that he would be serviceable at worst if forced to fill in.

S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Nick Collins’ neck injury in 2011 was a great example of a Jenga-like collapse. In fact, the Packers didn’t successfully rebuild the tower at the safety position in 2014, when they drafted Clinton-Dix. Losing him would likely have a similar effect; second-round rookie Josh Jones might be able to play some center field like Ha Ha, but right now he is being looked at more as an in-the-box safety and hybrid linebacker. Kentrell Brice showed some nice flashes last season, but he is also more of a hitter than a deep safety.

Perhaps Morgan Burnett could play more of the free safety role in a pinch, but even he has been at his best in the box in recent years. Losing Ha Ha would be a brutal blow to the defense, mainly because the Packers don’t have a true backup for him on the roster — and because he didn’t miss a snap last year.

OLB Nick Perry

The Packers were more reliant on their pass rush for defensive success than any other NFL team last season, and with apologies to Clay Matthews, Perry is currently the best and most established pass-rusher on the team at this point. Currently, the team’s backup pass-rushers are a fourth-year player who has flashed but couldn’t see the field consistently (Jayrone Elliott), a second-year player who remains in need of physical development (Kyler Fackrell), and a rookie fourth-round pick who had foot surgery before OTAs (Vince Biegel). That doesn’t instill a whole lot of confidence in the depth of the linebacker unit, and losing Perry for any length of time should concern Packers fans.

Packers Football 2017 Win Predictions: Green Bay winning the NFC North again

Packers Football 2017 Win Predictions

Packers Football 2017 Win Predictions With the NFL Draft fully behind us and the 2017 schedule now ahead, columnists writing about the NFL are firing up their prediction machines and trying to guess at how the various teams across the league will fare in the upcoming season.

To nobody’s surprise, teams like the Patriots, Steelers, and Falcons are seeing favorable reviews, and the Green Bay Packers Football are in the mix as well for the teams projected near the top of the league. Here’s a quick look at some predictions from a handful of writers.

Packers Football 2017 Win Predictions

Jonathan Jones (Sports Illustrated): 13-3

Jones did a game-by-game prediction for the whole league’s schedule, and he has the Packers earning home-field advantage in the NFC. In addition, he sees the Packers starting at a blistering pace and only losing one game (at Dallas) before a pair of divisional losses in the final two weeks of the season. Here’s some of Jones’ rationale:

Jones sees the Packers being three games clear of a crowded mess of NFC teams in second place, with the Seahawks, Cardinals, Buccaneers, and Falcons all at 10-6.

Rob Demovsky (ESPN): 11-5

ESPN’s Packers reporter picked only Green Bay’s games independently from his colleagues, but he’s also on board for an improvement over 2016, when the Packers went 10-6. Demo’s take? If the passing defense is better at all than it was last year, that should help the team win more games and have a better seeding in the playoffs.

For The Win: more than 10 wins

Instead of a specific prediction, three writers for USA Today’s sports section played around with the over/under win totals set by Las Vegas for each team. The Packers’ number is 10 — the same number that they had a year ago — and every one of the three expects the Packers to improve on that number.

The common theme here is that the Packers found a way to get to 10 last year despite being flat-out “bad” (their words) for much of 2016, and that they won’t be bad again this year.

Packers Five Players Lookup 2017

Jeff Janis, Wide Receiver

Over the past couple of years, Jeff Janis has become a Packers’ fan favorite. From being a practice squad standout to catching an amazing hail mary pass against the Atlanta Falcons in the playoffs a couple years back, Janis has made a name for himself with the Packers. Unfortunately, the Packers’ wide receiver depth chart got even deeper this offseason, and Janis could be on his last leg.

Joe Callahan, Quarterback

Green Bay is high on quarterback Joe Callahan, but he may be a roster cut ahead of the season. Brett Hundley is the obvious backup quarterback, while the Packers also signed undrafted free agent Taysom Hill this offseason. Hill and Callahan will battle for the No. 3 quarterback job, and Hill might just beat him out.

John Crockett, Running Back

Another name on the roster bubble is running back John Crockett. Green Bay currently has Ty Montgomery listed as their starter, with rookies Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones, and Devante Mays also fighting for touches. There just doesn’t appear to be a spot on the roster for Crockett unless he can beat out one of the three rookies that the Packers are excited about.

Jermaine Whitehead, Safety

Jermaine Whitehead is also on the chopping block, as the Packers are stacked at the safety position. He is not a household name amongst Packers’ fans but has carved out a small role for himself on special teams. That being said, the Packers are likely to cut him ahead of the upcoming season.

Demetri Goodson, Cornerback

Cutting a cornerback may not end up being in the equation for the Packers, but if it is, Demetri Goodson will likely be the guy. He has struggled to carve out a role for himself with the Packers thus far. Green Bay has Damarious Randall, Kevin King, Quinten Rollins, Davon House, Ladarius Gunter, and likely Josh Jones ahead of him on the depth chart, which makes Goodson’s roster spot questionable.
