Considering James Starks’ continued struggles, should Christine Michael see more action in the backfield?
While the celebrations of Sunday’s victory are ongoing, Packers Nation is quick to turn the page to Seattle this week. Not many teams quite get the attention of Packers fans like the Seahawks, and beating them in Lambeau this week would not only help the playoff push, but feel all the sweeter given the rivalry of these two teams in recent years.
An interesting piece by Michael Cohen on the Packers’ secondary. Despite failing to intercept Brock Osweiler, the defensive backfield remained disruptive all afternoon by deflecting passes and jumping routes.
Clay Matthews has been plagued with injuries this season, and many wonder whether he should have suited up Sunday vs. Houston. The hope is Matthews’ injured shoulder gets at least a little healthier ahead of this weekend’s must-win game vs. Seattle.
It’s clear James Starks isn’t the Packers’ best option at running back. Christine Michael is still working his way into a role in Green Bay, locking down the playbook remaining his biggest obstacle, but Cory Jennerjohn believes it’s time to put the ball in the former Seahawk’s hands more often. Maybe a revenge game is in sight this week against the team that cut him last month.
