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.
thanks Post received 3 applause.

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.

Smokey (58m) : Zero, I believe that you and some others place too much emphasis upon data. no harm intended.
Zero2Cool (1h) : It’s the 1st time since 1970 all 4 conference championship teams finished the regular season on winning streaks of 4+ games
TheKanataThrilla (1h) : Salt mine. Love it.
TheKanataThrilla (1h) : The refs kept that game close. We should have blown them out early.
DarkaneRules (1h) : Hyde and Gunter are special and I'm hopeful D Ran gets back to where he can be
mi_keys (1h) : That whole forum is a salt mine. It's beautiful.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Burnett's back up, Kentrell Brice lead team in tackles.

uffda udfa (7h) : Great news.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Jordy has "legitimate hope" to play, per @RobDemovsky.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Packers had one call on defense if called, no issue, wans't called. I didn't watch OL so dunno. I watched WR's
Zero2Cool (12h) : Dallas OL had some holds weren't called and 2 defensive holds, not called.
uffda udfa (12h) : I think the Pi vs just a holding call is a legit complaint. Terrible call.
GoPack1984 (12h) : Dallas can't complain about the officials. They got away with so many defensive holding calls.
uffda udfa (12h) : Dallas radio postgame: Dallas wins 7 out of 10 times.
uffda udfa (12h) : Brice led Pack w/ 6 tackles including the hardest of the game.
uffda udfa (12h) : Post game show said same thing. Everyone wondering how it didn't stay left.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Tornado warning forces players, fans to stay put at AT&T Stadium

uffda udfa (12h) : I don't believe Dallas is better than us. When Aaron is on we're the best.
beast (12h) : The huddle penalty was an odd one. Without Burnett and Nelson.
uffda udfa (12h) : Cowboys radio team initially called Crosby GW NO GOOD. Lol.
DarkaneRules (13h) : we beat an arguably better team at their place without morgan burnett. still can't believe it
uffda udfa (13h) : Re emphasized we aren't the better team. Sour grapes are sweet to me.
uffda udfa (13h) : Complaining of PI call and huddle penalty.
uffda udfa (13h) : Dallas play by play guy said we aren't best team.
uffda udfa (13h) : NBC is off the air down here. This is an OTA broadcast signal.
uffda udfa (13h) : Tornado warnings in Dallas area. Sign of aPACKalypse to Cowboys fans.
uffda udfa (13h) : I agree with a Homer. That's true. It was actually 35 per Erin Andrews post game int.
Zero2Cool (13h) : @espnhomer 4th and 26 is dead replaced by 36 on 3rd and 20.
