Depressing Packer Stat Of The Week

It's tough to pick just one, but if you're wondering about just how bad the run defense is, well...

Green Bay tackle Michael Montgomery has a stop rate of 43 percent on running plays, as his average run tackle comes after a 3.5-yard gain. No other defensive lineman with at least 25 run tackles has a stop rate of less than 50 percent.


Emphasis mine. So no other defensive lineman with any sort of playing time is even remotely close to being as bad at stopping the run as is Mr. Montgomery. Nice.

In a bad weather game this Monday look for Matt Forte to be huge.

And don't be at all surprised if Detroit gets its first win in week 17. The Lions can't play defense, but the way the Packers have been playing defense lately, Kevin Johnson and Megatron might be able to do enough damage to get the Lions over the hump. Plus they'll have all of that intel from Brett.

The Defense cannot be that bad it is all Rodgers fault ask any of the Favreophiles they will tell you.

Personally i think it's Chris fault for traitoring on his own teams.

Well done Benedict
