    What Are Your Thoughts On The Packers Releasing Pro-Bowl Safety Nick Collins? It’s really sad that such a talented player had to see his career in Green Bay derailed because of an injury. Collins looked like he had the potential to emerge as the best safety in the NFL within these next couple seasons. The Packers defense sure did look a hell of a lot better with him, I’ll tell you that.

    He’ll definitely be missed here in Wisconsin, as he was last season. I wish him the best.

    BQ: Assuming Charles Woodson doesn’t make the rumored move to safety, how do you think the Packers officially cutting ties with Collins affects their approach for the draft? Obviously they will be looking to draft at the safety position, but do you think that they still will look to target a pass rusher with their first pick, or is an early safety in the works?

  • Would You Be Surprised If Green Bay’s Defense Ranked Top 5 Next Season? Now I myself find the way defenses are graded very questionable. Why do we rank majorally based upon yards rather than points? I was under the impression points were a much better indicator of a game’s outcome, is that not the case? Teams such as the Packers and Patriots ranked horribly in yards allowed (32 and 31st respectively) and yet the Patriots ranked 14th and the Packers 18th in points allowed. This ranking is also a bit skewed against Green Bay considering they played their last game without Pro-Bowlers Clay Matthews or Charles Woodson, excluding this game would move them be ranked 13th overall.

    Considering Green Bay’s stellar 2010 defensive ranking as well as their clear focus towards improving their defense this offseason it would be unreasonable to expect their defense to remain awful in 2012. They clearly have talent on that side of the ball and if Nick Collins can return that could make all the difference. They have a strong secondary (look at the talent they have at that area on the field) and at least half their front 7 figured out.

    Let’s be honest, this defense led the league in interceptions by far and tied for first in overall turnovers. Not only was this defense putting the ball into their offense’s hands more frequently than al but their co-turnover champions (San Francisco), they were putting the ball into the hands of Aaron Rodgers that frequently. Turnovers decide games, especially when given to an offense and lethal as Green Bay’s.

    Does Green Bay’s defense have problems? Obviously, but I feel some exaggerate this weakness to make it much more grave of an issue than it is. One more quality pass rusher to compliment Matthews and this defense goes from opportunistic to extraordinarily dangerous.
    Sorry, I’ve just become fed up with a lot of sports blogs and needed to rant for a while.
    Sorry, I’ve just become fed up with a lot of sports blogs and needed to rant for a while.
    Matthews, Pickett, and Woodson were not injured. They were inactive because Green Bay already had the #1 seed locked up. They were completely healthy and ready to play if McCarthy would’ve allowed it.
    Dom Capers, Green Bay’s defensive coordinator, is a defensive genius. Before his arrival our defense was ranked 23rd and even worse in points allowed, in his first year our defense rose to be ranked 9th. The next year our defense was ranked 4th. I’m gonna go ahead and say some other factors other than our DC are going on here.

    Also, New Orleans and Green Bay will not play eachother this upcoming season unless they meet in the playoffs.
    Nick Collins isn’t even 30 yet. You might want to edit that part out. Charles Woodson isn’t old, he’s 36. 36 is usually old, but old is only an ample definition if your game has regressed. Woodson simply refuses to regress at all and has been a dominant defensive force every year he’s been with Green Bay. Morgan Burnett is a playmaker when he doesn’t have a caste on his arm. Desmond Bishop is one of the better ILB in the league. Hawk is overrated, that I agree with. Tramon Williams is excellent for a #2 CB and, as it is, is better than many #1’s.
    @Rave Nation
    Other than Cullen Jenkins, this is the same group of guys that were a top 5 defense in 2010. I think you’re just jelly of our defense’s knack for grabbing interceptions.

      You give Capers credit when they do good but absolve him of anything bad going on.Please tell me how anyone believed it was a good idea not to rush Favre his first year with the Vikings?
      +Woodson and others even complained about this.Favre did his worst when pressured..Amazeingly that was 2 losses!
      We lost a great pass rusher by the name of Aaron Kampman because of his switching defensive personal around like they are a beer league softball team.Mathews was top rated pass rusher now they are switching him around as well.A whole 6 sacks last year.That is because they are not useing him where his talant is best.
      Did ya see how much time Manning had in the playoffs? A few plays there were 2 players rushing a line of 5 and Manning was picking apart the Packers.
      That is a direct result of play calling.
      Ya talk about the turnovers and I agree that is the better part of the defense.Bottom line is they were one of the worst rated defenses in the NFL.Haveing Mathews play back and Woodson rushing is not the answer.The defense can not expect Rodgers and company to carry them all the time.
      If ya look they did not shut down any good QB last year.They had success against guys like Orton, and Ponder.But when guys like Newton,Brees and Stafford played against them they had their way with them
      Like I said they can’t depend on the offense to carry them all the time.

    • Curator says:

      Yes that is true he was the center of that D, he was the leader on the field and he could allow the CBs to pay more aggressive because they knew he would have their back if they miss.
