Packers may have their one-two RB punch in Ty Montgomery, Aaron Jones

Continue Reading @ ESPN


As long as Jones is the featured back and Monty the change of pace/3rd down back I think it will work.

I think Monty is getting the a bad shake in the hype deal. Monty didn't have the same luxuries in his games, as Jones did.

Yes Aaron Jones did very well, but it was against an injured\poor Cowboys defense, when the Packers had their healthiest OL.

I'm not knocking Jones, just saying I believe Monty would of done a hell lot better against the Cowboys than the Seahawks, Bengals, etc... especially with them still figuring out what to do with the injured OL.

It's hard to say how Monty would have done. That said, a one two punch would be great! Opening up the play action pass would give us a new twist and keep the D off of Rodgers.

Monty's been tentative in the hole. AJ just hits it, sets up his blockers well.

Ok. I think Jones is quicker and has better RB instincts. Monty is better blocker, receiver and in the power plays. Which is why I want him in there on 3rd down.

Aaron Jones doesn't have the measurements to be a RB.

不不不不不

There is no change of pace back in this offense
When Ty is in he is in for every down.
When Aaron comes in he Will be in for every down.
Same with Jamaal.
When Randall Cobb comes in(yes they still do that), he is in for every down

Mike said he hopes to at some point have a 1-4 punch.
Still plenty of football left.
Packers are going to need all these guys to get through to February.

Monty's versatility helps Aaron determine the defensive coverage and it helps Mike get match ups.

There is a "I don't know what it is" with Jones in the backfield. Perhaps it is the line, but he just seems to be comfortable hitting the holes and making cuts when needed. This kid is pretty exciting. Is last week an over-evaluation of his talent? Maybe, but if our week-to-week is 80% I'm ok with that.

I dont like monty as a pure rb. When it was announced that this is what he would do I didnt like it at all. He is better as a scat back - a rb that catches or moves alot and then goes rather then tries to power through guys.

It showed when he was a receiver; he is like a stronger cobb not a eddie lacy in his good year.

Im surprised AJ did so well this game; be interesting to see how he does against vs the purple defense. My favorite rookie rb was williams; but my mind might change depending on how AJ keeps doing here.

This week will be a good test for him. Be great to see some consistency across several weeks,
