Green Bay Packers News: Christine Michael expected to debut vs. Eagles

Christine Michael is set to make his Green Bay Packers debut in Monday night’s game at Philadelphia.

Michael was inactive in Sunday’s loss at Washington, which was no surprise given the short amount of time he had to prepare. He will be expected to see plenty of the ball in a hope to give the Green Bay offense the spark it needs.

Ted Thompson’s decision to sign Michael made sense, but he doesn’t make enough outside acquisitions. His silence this year, paired with his flawed philosophy, is partly to blame for the Packers’ issues, as I wrote in my “Packer Perspective” column.

What did we learn from the Week 11 loss at Washington? Here’s five takeaways from the defeat, the Packers’ fourth in a row.

Dom Capers’ future is as much in question as Mike McCarthy’s. Should McCarthy, or another head coach for that matter, decide to make a change, the fourth quarter in Washington could go a long way to deciding it. It was the night Green Bay’s defense hit rock bottom.

Christine Michael is set to make his Packers debut next Monday night at Philadelphia. With almost two weeks of preparation by the time the game starts, Michael is ready to give the running game another weapon. Michael put up six touchdowns in Seattle this year.

Tweet of the day:

Nagler hits the nail on the head here. Draft and develop works if you hit on your draft picks, but that hasn’t been the case in the past couple of years. The Packers are feeling the effects.
