Reporting as Eligible Podcast on NFL’s COVID plan, Packers’ offensive shift, Rodgers’ weirdness

Paul and Ryan discuss the NFL’s plan to deal with the elephant in the room, the team’s likely shift to heavy personnel, why exactly Aaron Rodgers is better when he can’t move and is in mortal danger, and whether any of these tight ends are any good. 

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.

As the NFL finally begins to kick things off, they also have to deal with the realities of the Covid-19. On this episode of Reporting as Eligible, Paul and Ryan take a deeper look at the NFL’s safety protocols, explain the key differences from Major League Baseball’s safety protocols, the difficulties of setting up an NFL bubble akin to what the NBA has done, and whether the league should just wait for a vaccine.

Focusing more on the football side of things, they also discuss the Packers’ likely move to more heavy personnel this season with Jace Sternberger and Josiah Deguara likely to play larger roles without an additional receiver in sight, and their crackpot theory that Aaron Rodgers would benefit from a worse offensive line or some kind of leg injury. Plus listener questions!
