Reporting as Eligible — Packers’ youth movement keeps rolling

The rookies all combine forces to form some kind of playoff bound machine.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers Wm. Glasheen-USA TODAY Sports

Several Acme Packing Company contributors have joined forces for a Packers-focused podcast: Reporting As Eligible. If you’ve ever wondered what Paul Noonan, Tyler Brooke, 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.


On this episode of Reporting as Eligible, Paul, Matt, and special guest Tim Braun (of Tech Hockey Guide and the Chasing MacNaughton Podcast) break down the win against the Bears, and just how many of the Green Bay Packers’ outstanding rookies turned in great performances to push the team into the playoffs. The offense put up the most dominant 17-point performance ever, while young defenders Karl Brooks, Lukas Van Ness, Quay Walker, and Carrington Valentine all combined forces to limit Justin Fields, Khalil Herbert, and DJ Moore to 192 total yards.

The guys also talked over the strange officiating, the lack of replay on NFL+, and just how quickly games move along without penalties, before turning to our old friend Mike McCarthy and the Dallas Cowboys, who, in some ways, share some things in common with the Bears. And as always, listener questions, as RAE rolls into the playoffs.
