Reporting as Eligible: How to treat Mennengitis

When the Packers hired their special teams coordinator they did not outkick their coverage. Now they routinely outkick their coverage.

Several Acme Packing Company contributors have joined forces for a Packers-focused podcast: Reporting As Eligible. If you’ve ever wondered what Paul Noonan, Rcon14, or Matub sound like in real life, tune in as they join JR Radcliffe of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel for discussion and banter about the Packers and whatever else is going on out there.

This week following the Green Bay Packers’ relatively narrow win over Matthew Stafford and the Lions, Paul, Matub, and JR discuss why all of the stats seems pretty good despite the game not feeling very good. Special teams plays a major role, but they also weave in pace of play and how Mike Pettine’s “death by 1000 paper cuts” defense dos not play well with Matt LaFleur’s occasional preference for extended drives. In short, BALL CONTROL IS BAD.

Also, is MVS actually good now? Is this the most efficient Packer offense ever? And was the Monday night game between the Browns and Ravens the greatest NFL game of all time, or was it number 2? All of that, plus a slew of excellent listener questions round things out, as we go into a Saturday night contest against Teddy Bridgewater and Carolina.
