shows the Packers are headed in the right direction. Green Bays running games once again got whatever it wanted on the ground and Aaron Rodgers made some big plays with his arm and his legs. They were a machine on third down (with a few notable exceptions which we will get to) and looked Womens Reggie White Jersey , for most of the game, like they could do pretty much whatever they wanted against a Bills defense that suffocated and rattled a very good Vikings offense in Week 3. After the game, Rodgers described the offensive output as terrible, praising the defense as championship caliber and the offense as non-playoff quality. Thats not quite fair, as the Texans made the playoffs with Brian Hoyer not that long ago, but thats not the point. When the quarterback says this could have been a 600-yard, 45-point day, hes not wrong. Green Bay should have been leading about 30-0 at halftime, not 16-0. Aaron Jones injected the kind of life into this run game we expected coming off the suspension. The Packers are finding ways to get Jimmy Graham involved and are creatively utilizing Ty Montgomery in the passing game. Geronimo Allison, despite some catches hell tell you he should have made, has emerged as a legitimate NFL playmaker and the offensive line held up against a ferocious Bills front. All that said, critical and easily correctable failures can not go unchallenged. Theres absolutely no reason to call give-up plays on third-and-long with Aaron Rodgers. The draw on 3rd-and-11 and receiver screen on 3rd-and-16 are incomprehensible given what we know about Rodgers ability. Unless its 3rd-and-20+, the Packers should never give in or try to get cute with draw plays Womens Davante Adams Jersey , especially not with Jamaal Williams. The running back rotation makes no sense and its starting to feel like Mike McCarthy is paralyzed by choice. He likes the reliability of Jamaal Williams and the versatility of Montgomery, but Jones is clearly the best back on this team. Enough of this hot hand nonsense. On Sunday, Jones finished with 65 yards on 11 carries. Williams managed just 27 yards on 11 carries. Tell me how they have the same number of totes given that disparity. A desire to not be predictable by formation shouldnt override the overwhelming reality that Jones should be a majority player in this offense. Jones posted 82 yards on 12 touches against the Bills. Montgomery had 74 yards on seven touches. At what point does the playmaking ability outweigh the reliability? Jones and Montgomery arent liabilities in pass protection and each are considerably more explosive. Green Bay ran 74 plays on Sunday and Jones should have been in on 45 of them. Montgomery should get 20. Williams can have the other nine just to keep everyone fresh. Rodgers has advocated for Jones as a playmaker in this offense and the lack of coherency to McCarthys plan with these running backs has to be partially driving the frustration from QB1. Another key personnel question is what purpose, exactly, does Lance Kendricks serve in this offense? His deployment continues to make no sense given the Packers options at the position. It was nice to see McCarthy takes Jimmy Graham off the field for some two tight end work where they want to run it, but replacing him with Kendricks simply doesnt make sense. Hes a bad blocker, yet this offense uses him for lead blocks and seal blocks on inside runs for reasons that boggle the mind. As a pass catcher, supposedly his forte, hes never been a reliable receiver. Another third-down drop on Sunday killed a drive. At what point does hes one of our guys or whatever absurd coaching cliche piece of nonsense McCarthy comes up with simply run out of rope? This team signed Marcedes Lewis, a legitimate starting tight end in the league and one of the best blockers in football. Hes the perfect complement to Graham, and yet the Packers have only played the two together on a handful of snaps all season. Kendricks no longer serves a useful purpose to this team and not only should we be wondering why Marcedes Lewis isnt playing over him, its becoming clear perhaps Big Bob Tonyan should be in that conversation as well. The final part of this Rodgers himself. He looked spry and elusive, like the old Rodgers not the old Rodgers … ers-jersey , making plays with his feet and extending them to create through the air. But this isnt vintage Rodgers throwing the ball. He missed Davante Adams on a slant again, which could just be timing and reps from not practicing. Rodgers just isnt quite his razor sharp self. And perhaps thats part of his frustration in all of this. Hes not playing up to his own standard. The numbers are still there. His lone interception of the season to date came on a double-tip, but this team has too many playmakers to not be putting up 28+ every week.With Randall Cobb out and Allison hurt for a portion of the second half, this team can be forgiven for not lighting up the scoreboard with two rookies forced into starting roles. But Rodgers correctly notes Davante Adams is one of the toughest covers in the league and this team should be force-feeding him. Ditto for Jimmy Graham and Aaron Jones. For most of this offenses lifespan, Rodgers has lauded the scheme for being about winning your matchup. The ball can go anywhere. That works when the team has prime Rodgers, with Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Jermichael Finley et al. But the league has changed and the Packers havent changed enough with it. Theyre 75% there. Rodgers simply being Rodgers would be enough to make this offense really good. Fix a couple personnel problems and swap four or five calls a game. Add in Rodgers getting healthy and sharpening his edge, this team will be back to lighting up opponents. We saw a glimpse of it in Week 1 when Rodgers was as sharp as hes been all season. If he gets back to being that guy, everything else falls into place. But when hes not, as he hasnt been the last few weeks, the shortcomings elsewhere magnify.A few small tweaks should be enough to get this offense back on track. And perhaps thats part of why Rodgers is so upset. Theyre close. And some of the shortcomings stem from easily correctable problems. He can see how good this offense can be. Theyre not there yet Womens Antonio Morrison Jersey , but it wont take much to get them there. Over two weeks, Acme Packing Company will break down the Green Bay Packers 2018 roster position-by-position, providing our grades for each spot and looking ahead to free agency. Today, we begin with the quarterbacks.After taking a look at our grades for the quarterback position overall earlier today, lets dive a bit farther into the new faces at the position. Green Bay turned over the bottom of the QB depth chart in 2018, adding two players while unloading former backup Brett Hundley for a late-round draft pick in 2019.The fact that general manager Brian Gutekunst got anything for Hundley was impressive, particularly given his struggles when thrust into the starting lineup in 2017. It ended up working out fine; Aaron Rodgers started all 16 games, and in the only meaningful game that saw him miss time, he returned to lead the team to a comeback victory. However, his new backup struggled mightily in his two games of extended action.DeShone KizerHow acquired: trade from Cleveland Browns Packers received Kizer, 2018 4th-round draft pick (#101 overall), 2018 5th-round draft pick (#138 overall) in exchange for DB Damarious Randall, 2018 4th-round draft pick (#114 overall) and 2018 5th-round draft pick (#150 overall)Regular season stats: 20-42 (47.6% completions) Womens Jamaal Williams Jersey , 187 yards (4.5 Y/A), 0 touchdowns, 2 interceptions; 40.5 passer ratingPreseason stats: 32-60 (53.3% completions), 460 yards (7.7 Y/A), 3 touchdowns, 1 interception; 88.2 passer ratingOh boy. Kizer was one of the key pieces in a trade early in the offseason that unloaded malcontent defensive back Damarious Randall on the Browns. As a rookie, Kizer started 15 games and struggled mightily, as rookie quarterbacks tend to do. The idea was that a full offseason of tutelage under Mike McCarthy would help him fix some of his decision-making problems and become a more consistent player.In week one, that theory was shot to hell when Kizer came on for an injured Rodgers in the first half. He turned the football over twice, once on a sack-strip and once on a screen pass pick-six to Khalil Mack. Kizer was saved by Rodgers return if the veteran had indeed suffered a more catastrophic injury, the Packers likely would have had to turn to free agency or a trade to find a quarterback capable of keeping them remotely competitive.All told, Kizers limited game action showed a player who wasnt much different from what he was in Cleveland as a rookie; he was inaccurate and inconsistent, and though he could make some plays with his legs Womens Aaron Ripkowski Jersey , he was easily rattled by pressure.Tim BoyleHow acquired: signed as rookie undrafted free agentRegular season stats: nonePreseason stats: 26-53 (49.1% completions), 294 yards (5.5 Y/A), 3 touchdowns, 2 interceptions; 69.2 passer ratingA rookie from Eastern Kentucky, the book on Boyle coming out of college was that he had a big arm but faced questions about his athleticism and accuracy. He showed those qualities in the preseason, and his arm apparently gave the Packers enough confidence in him as a developmental quarterback to keep him on the 53-man roster. Did losing Taysom Hill on waivers after final cuts in 2017 play a factor in keeping Boyle? Only Mike McCarthy and Brian Gutekunst can answer that, but Boyle ended up as exclusively a scout-team quarterback this season and an emergency option who never saw the field. With a new coaching staff coming in and plenty of day-three draft picks in the Packers control, Boyle will likely be competing for the #3 spot in 2019.
