Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers 2018 Season

The beginning of the 2017 season looked quite promising for the Green Bay Packers while they were on a 4-2 record streak which was then a franchise record, however things started to go wrong when their QB Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone while going down after making a pass during the game on week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings. He returned back to the lineup just on week 15 against the Packers which ended in another loss and weak performance by Rodgers. The loss in the score of 23-0 to the Baltimore Ravens in week 11 of the regular season was the second biggest ever in Lambeau Field. The previous one was to the New England Patriots with the astonishing score of 35-0. The Green Bay Packers ended the 2017 season in a negative record of 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the first time since the 2008 season. Entering the 2018 season, Mike McCarthy, the head coach of the Green Bay Packers is in danger of being shown the way out of the team. After prior disappointing season with negative record of 7-9 and not making the playoffs, the Green Bay Packers and their coach, McCarthy need a good season with playoffs clinch. After Minnesota Vikings won the NFC North division in the last two seasons, looking at the Green Bay Packers 2018 regular season schedule, they can be optimistic in light of QB Aaron Rodgers coming back to the roster. Since Rodgers took the position of the starting quarterback, the Green Bay Packers won the division in five out of ten times. Looking at the Green Bay Packers schedule we see the Atlanta Falcons visiting Lambeau field, while on the road the Green Bay Packers facing the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots. The Minnesota Vikings is another playoffs team among other three that the Green Bay Packers will play against in the regular season. During offseason the Green Bay Packers made several key plays in terms of signups and releases: QB Deshone Kizer was transferred from the Cleveland Brown and already impressed in the offseason program. Kiser is a top backup choice in case Aaron Rodgers goes down for any reason. After one good rookie season he brings freshness and confidence to the Green Bay Packers coaching staff. With that said, the Green Bay Packers still aim to see Aaron Rodgers staying healthy and on the field as much as possible, a factor that has high odds of bringing the Green Bay Packers back to the playoffs and possibly to the Super Bowl. Last season QB Brett Hundley didn’t deliver as a decent backup after Aaron Rodgers went down. The Green Bay Packers signed DT Muhammad Wilkerson to a one-year, $5 million contract. On the draft at 18th overall pick the Green Bay Packers selected cornerback Jaire Alexander, who, given his proven playing capabilities in college football, is considered to create a substantial impact in his first season with the Green Bay Packers Without a doubt the most crucial and significant sign is TE Jimmy Graham who was acquired from the Seattle Seahawks and signed a three year contract worth of 30 million dollar. Given the inconsistency and messy outside wide receiver position on the other side of Davante Adams, and the transfer of Jordy Nelson to the Oakland Raiders, a lot will be accounted for Graham best skill of catching passes. On the staff end, as the general manager ,Brian Gutekunst joined the Green Bay Packers instead of Ted Thom and as one who is considered creative and bold in his players selection had a major weight on the offseason acquisitions. Looking at the 2018 schedule for the Green Bay Packers, on the board it seems like the toughest out there. The will have to face many last year’s playoffs contenders and teams that made the playoffs last year. The odds of the Green Bay Packers winning their division are high but for this to happen will require winning one or two games which they are underdog in and where the odds are against them on. Without a doubt the key factor for a success season will be a season-long healthy QB Aaron Rodgers. If that happens they will be hard to beat at their home field of Lambeau. The odds predict the Green Bay Packers to win about seven of their home games, on top of additional four victories on the road.

They have moved Clay Matthews to Outside Line Backer playing left OLB while Julius Peppers plays right OLB. BJ Raji is back from his injury and is ready and hungry for a win. Fans and sports analysts find these movements to be slightly different from last year as the Packers have mixed up their defense to fill in the shoes of Tramon Williams. Randall Cobb is expected to give a repeat of his excellent performance from the last season. He has one of the most red-zone touchdown passes caught last season with 10 passes. Richard Rodgers, the Packers’ tight end, is looking for more red-zone success and passes form quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. As last season’s rookie tight end, Richard Rodgers only caught a few touchdown passes, but this year, he plans to make more for the Green Bay Packers. He had been performing really well during the Training Camp and had been playing several great games during the practice and preseason games. He has replaced the Andrew Quarless as this year’s starting tight end. The reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers is another player that Green Bay Packers fans are more than excited to see in action. He will be leading the Packers offense and is looking for another MVP win for this season’s NFL. He is working with the team’s wide receivers at translating passes into touchdowns for the Green Bay Packers. Eddie Lacy will also be holding court as the Packers’ starting back with James Starks as the second string. Both players will need to step up their games in order for them to win the Super Bowl. With all these talent from both defense and offense, the Green Bay Packers have a good chance of winning.
