Kenny Clark and Davante Adams both miss practice ahead of Week 3 date with Saints

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel-USA TODAY NETWORK via Imagn Content Services, LLC Two of the Packers’ biggest names weren’t on the practice field today. Defensive lineman Kenny Clark and wide receiver Davante Adams were held out of practice today as both recover from injuries sustained in the first two weeks of the 2020 season. Clark seems to be on track to miss his second consecutive game after leaving the Packers’ Week 1 game with a groin injury. Adams, meanwhile, has gotten good reports from both his head coach and his quarterback. Matt LaFleur described Adams’ absence from the...

Za’Darius Smith on playing rover: ‘I have all the freedom in the world’

Za’Darius Smith on playing rover: ‘I have all the freedom in the world’

The Packers’ top veteran pass-rusher discusses one of his significant alignments and breaks down film to illustrate his approach. With Kenny Clark out for the Green Bay Packers last Sunday, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine used a heavy dose of a playcall known as “Z Green Bay.” As the first letter suggests, this is an alignment that features Za’Darius Smith, the team’s biggest free agent acquisition in the 2019 offseason, in the middle of the defense. This call signifies Smith being able to rush the passer from a “rover” position, roaming around the interior of the line of...

Wednesday Walkthroughs: Who is the most improved Packers player in 2020?

Appleton Post-Crescent-USA TODAY NETWORK via Imagn Content Services, LLC APC writers share their picks for the most improved Packers player so far this season. For years, the Green Bay Packers banked hard on player growth as a team-improvement strategy. Unfortunately, the “develop” part of “draft and develop” is often much easier said than done. But this year, the Packers are benefitting from a few big jumps from players they’ve had in the pipeline for quite some time. Here are our picks for the most improved members of their developmental prospects. Shawn Wagner: Robert...

Advanced Stats 101: EPA and the resurgence of the Packers’ offense

Photo by Dylan Buell/ The Packers offense has roared back to life in year two under Matt LaFleur. One advanced metric can help explain how. The Green Bay Packers offense has officially roared to life after another impressive showing on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. You’ve likely noticed Pro Football Focus has Aaron Rodgers as their top graded player in the league and everyone is abuzz about Aaron Jones’ incredible performance on the ground and in the passing game. It’s a great time to be a Packers fan even this early in the season and we’re going to do something a little...

APC Podcast, 9/23: Can the Packers offense keep up their hot start?

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports Is two straight weeks of over 40 points a flash in the pan, or a harbinger of a runaway division title? If the Green Bay Packers’ week-one performance on offense left us with raised eyebrows, our faces may soon be permanently locked in an expression of stunned delight. Week two saw another point explosion, as the Packers walloped the Detroit Lions 42-21. As we touched on frequently in the lead-up to the season, the first four games seem particularly murky this year in terms of definitive takeaways. But we can’t help but ride the wave of optimism and...

Wednesday Cheese Curds: Packers’ defense is getting in on the scoring

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Green Bay’s offense has turned heads early, but the defense isn’t letting that group have all the fun in terms of putting points on the board. The Green Bay Packers’ offense has been the main story for the team over the first two weeks of the season, and with good reason. It is on a historic pace through two games, getting off to a strong start the likes of which have rarely been seen in the NFL. But while the defense has lagged the offense behind in its performance overall, there have been some encouraging moments. The defense has scored nine points this year...

Packers place Lane Taylor on injured reserve, release Greg Roberts from practice squad

Packers place Lane Taylor on injured reserve, release Greg Roberts from practice squad

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ The Packers have finally moved Taylor off their 53, likely ending his season. Lane Taylor’s season is almost certainly over. On Tuesday, the Green Bay Packers finally placed Taylor on injured reserve, opening up his spot on the 53-man roster. The move became official on Tuesday’s official transaction report. In most years, this would be a sure sign that Taylor’s season is done, and in all likelihood it still is. In 2020, teams may bring an unlimited number of players back from injured reserve after the players spend three weeks on that list. However, given...

Allen Lazard is among the NFL’s most efficient wide receivers through two games

Allen Lazard is among the NFL’s most efficient wide receivers through two games

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ The Alien Lizard’s third-down contributions are a huge reason why he is the league’s second-ranked receiver by DVOA so far. Davante Adams put up the gaudy numbers in week one. Marquez Valdes-Scantling has the biggest plays. But you can make an argument that Allen Lazard has been the most valuable receiver for the Green Bay Packers in the early going this season — and at the very least he has been the most efficient of the group. Lazard’s conventional numbers through two games aren’t necessarily eye-popping. In week one he caught four passes for 63 yards...

The Packers’ Aaron Jones Conundrum: To Pay or not to pay?

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports Will the talented back make Packers fans change their thinking on paying ball carriers? I know, I know. It’s another article on paying running backs. I get it. But this time, it’s near and dear to the hearts of Green Bay Packers fans. Aaron Jones had another banner performance on Sunday, rushing for 168 yards and two touchdowns, one of which was a 75 yarder to open the second half. However, this is something we knew about Jones. After all, he did rush for 1,084 yards last year along with 16 touchdowns. However, in 2019 he also had 49 receptions for 474...
