The Green Bay Packers seem to have a reluctance to play young players on defense. Ultimately, that could be hurting them in the long run. We investigate.


I assumed the schemes were too complex. The speed of the game too fast.

It's bullshit. Just another excuse for shit suckage.

I almost feel like Dom is playing favorites with some of his veterans. Matthews and Rajii both started as rookies. So did Morgan Burnett.

Yeah matthews started but it took 4 weeks even though it was clear he was the better player. Same with Hayward

let me just float this idea. Perhaps, the younger guys are not playing more, because THEY ARE NOT READY to play more. Perhaps, they only know a limited amount of the plays and assignments, perhaps they make way to many mistakes that none of us know because WE don't know what they were suppose to do in the first place. Perhaps the plays we see them make are because they are not where they are suppose to be.

Perhaps they are not as good or ready or prepared and since the coaches talk, work and see them every day and we don't, perhaps they have a hell of a lot better idea of who is better for the team to play at a given time.

So what does it matter when you have a veteran like Jennings who obviously isn't ready and makes those same mistakes so much he gets benched 3 weeks in a row.

Maybe Jennings, as bad as he seemed to be, was the best option. Scary thought.

Bad article. In just the last 2 years, Perry, Worthy, Daniels, Heyward, Hyde, & Boyd got significant playing time as rookies. Not full time starters, but certainly saw the field. Yes, that time increased as the year went on (Except for injury). Doesn't that just make sense?

With the avalanche of injuries we always suffer we can say that whoever is healthy plays.

When you see Jarret Bush on the field you know it is pointless to ask who plays and who doesn't.
