When examining the performance of the defense in the Green Bay Packers’ 22-0 win over the Buffalo Bills , it seems some are concluding the Bills are just bad on offense rather than the Packers making a leap on defense.Both can be and likely are true.The game was clearly moving way too fast for Buffalo rookie quarterback Josh Allen. Yes the Bills obliterated Minnesota just a week prior, but Allen really didn’t play all that well and our own Paul Noonan broke it down wel here. Meanwhile, the Packers showed improvement. The interior pass rush developed as we all hoped it would and Kyler Fackrell(!!!) has three sacks though he was gifted one when Allen tripped over his own man.Green Bay will have to continue improving and they’re not out of the woods yet, but defensive coordinator Mike Pettine’ scheme seems to be settling in and the Packers got their first shutout since 2010. That season ended pretty well if I remember correctly.Anyways, there is more on the defense plus why the offense is of concern but not necessarily ‘awful’ in today’s cheese curds.Packers analysis: Inside pass rushers must keep bringing pressure—PackersNews.comEveryone has been waiting for the defensive line to consistently get to the quarterback given the team’s issues at edge rusher, and it finally happened Sunday.Now they just need to keep it up.Packers defense must keep progressing—Packers.comHead coach Mike McCarthy was impressed by his defense’s performance, but like many fans he is wondering what is next? What will they do now that they’ve put a solid effort for 60 minutes on tape.Two for Tuesdays: 2 underrated plays from Packers’ Week 4 win—Packers WireEveryone is rightfully fawning over Aaron Jones at running back Green Bay Packers T-Shirt , but don’t forget Ty Montgomery. Good things happen when he touches the ball abd with Jones’ emerging presence he could be a weapon all over the field.Packers offense not ‘terrible’ but concerning after four games—247Sports.comRodgers called the offense ‘terrible’ after Sunday’s game and while that might be a reach, yet understandable given the quarterback’s competitive nature, there are signs the offense is not well.Crash releases 70 cows onto Atlanta-area highway—UPIThis definitely won’t help traffics moo-ve along. For travelers this must have been an udderly frustrating experience or at least dairy trying. OK, I’ve milked these puns long enough.Friday Cheese Curds: Jaire Alexander, Josh Jackson are proving the Packers right When the Green Bay Packers drafted cornerbacks Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson in the first two rounds of this year’s NFL draft, it was a foregone conclusion both would have to contribute immediately.With one week in their rookie seasons’ complete, color their defensive coordinator impressed.Mike Pettine leaned heavily on both rookies Sunday night. Alexander played 49 of the 70 defensive snaps and Jackson played 46.While both made mistakes Green Bay Packers Hats , one thing was clear to Pettine and anyone else who watched the game: neither of the two youngsters were overmatched and you really never said the same about the duo’s predecessors, Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins.It was however only one game and you can’t paint their rookie campaigns on one performance. Alexander and Jackson face a much stiffer test when the Minnesota Vikings and Kirk Cousins, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen come to town this week. If they can hold their own against that trio, the Packers will be ecstatic.You can read more on their NFL debuts plus four former Packers may hear the call from Canton in 2019 in today’s cheese curds.Packers’ cornerbacks earning Mike Pettine’s trust on big stage—PackersNews.comAlexander and Jackson both came from big schools and played on the national stage in college. That probably helped them not get caught up in the moment of their first official NFL game. For Packers’ DeShone Kizer, uncertainty about Aaron Rodgers means being ready — and avoiding devastating turnovers—Wisconsin State JournalKizer had the unfortunate pleasure of taking his first snaps in an offense he is still learning while under duress from Khalil Mack. Should he be called into action Sunday, Kizer’s task against the Minnesota defense will not be any easier.Former Packers OLB thinks he could beat out current Packers OLB Kyler Fackrell—Packers WireHarsh words from Brady Poppinga. At this point however, would anyone really disagree?The ‘Aaron Rodgers rule’ stemming from hit by Anthony Barr continues to reverberate—Minneapolis Star-TribuneAaron Rodgers’ broken collarbone was the injury heard around the league last year Green Bay Packers Womens Hoodie , and a new rule regarding landing on the quarterback developed in its wake has stirred up a lot of controversy. Barr has his own thoughts on the new rule including surprisingly agreeing with one call.Butler, Holmgren among 2019 Pro Football Hall of Fame nominees—Packers.comWith Jerry Kramer now enshrined, every Packers fan I talked to in Canton said the next Packer to get in should be LeRoy Butler. Sterling Sharpe, also a nominee for 2019, was also mentioned.The most interesting name on this list? Nick Collins.
