Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

Recommended Posts

The 49ers got a win in New Orleans on Sunday, but the 48-46 shootout took a toll on them physically.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan announced that center Weston Richburg tore his patellar tendon and will miss the rest of the season. Ben Garland will step into the center spot for this week and beyond. Cornerback Richard Sherman is set to miss a couple of weeks after going for an MRI of his injured hamstring. Defensive end Dee Ford also re-injured his hamstring and Shanahan said he’ll also miss multiple weeks as a result of the injury.

Second-and-short is one of the best situations to throw downfield in football: It can produce a big play, but if the pass is incomplete, the offense still has a good opportunity to pick up the first down on third-and-short. But only one team is taking advantage of those situations. That team is the Packers, who are the only team in the NFL that passes more than they run on second-and-short, and who average 14.2 yards on second-and-short, according to the Wall Street Journal. (Those stats exclude goal-line situations.)

No team is remotely close to as successful in those situations: The Packers are gaining twice as many yards on second-and-short as the next-best team.

The Packers have two different passes of 50 yards or longer on second-and-short this season; the rest of the NFL combined has one pass of 50 yards or longer on second-and-short this season.

With Dalvin in the backfield, we should be passing a lot on 2nd and short. Our play action game is deadly as it is, but I suspect it would be even better in 2nd and shorts.

Aaron Rodgers:  "[Winning his second Super Bowl] is on my mind every day. That’s why we play the game. That’s why you put in the time in the offseason, that’s why you do the little things. It’s to put yourself in this position, where we’re two games away from being able to compete for that. I’m 36, I know what this is all about. This is an important opportunity for us. I feel like I’ve got a lot of really good years left, but you never know. A lot of things happen year to year. We’ve had some great teams that have been an injury away or a play away from being special, so I want to make the most of this opportunity. When I was 31, I thought I was going to play into my 40s and that was still a decade away. now, I’m 36, so now we’re a half a decade away.”
