How have the Packers improved on defense?


#Hey there, hope everybody had a great #Christmas. #Thanks for logging on today. #Let’s go ahead and get started.

#Great job on WYMM once again #Mike. #Do you expect to see any of the defensive changes used last against #Henry and the #Titans to be used this week against #Montgomery and the #Bears?

#Thanks for checking out the segment. The film was really interesting to go through. #To your question, it really depends on how the #Bears employ their personnel. #If #Chicago uses a bunch of two- and three-TE sets, then why not. #But if the #Bears are going to go three wide and try to run #Montgomery that way, you still have to match personnel on the perimeter.

I know, I know. #Just beat the #Bears. #However, if you will allow this indulgence, if the #Packers do beat the #Bears they will have the same record as last season’s. #Please compare and contrast.

#This offense is in a completely different place than last year’s. #It’s one of the best in the league. #That wasn’t the case a year ago. #Defensively, the #Packers are coming on strong late here, which is a good sign. #Last year’s unit might have been more consistent overall, but we saw it going the wrong way later in the year. #Special teams aren’t as sound and reliable. #That’s pretty obvious.

#Good morning, #Mike! #We’ve been hearing a lot about the #Bears’ offensive resurgence. #How has their defense been playing recently?

#It’s pretty good, but I don’t think it’s been as good as the past couple of years, certainly not like the ’18 team that won the division. The #Lions put up a bunch of points on them right before this recent winning streak started. #Minnesota moved the ball pretty well on them, too. #Hicks, #Mack, #Jackson, #Roquan #Smith are all top-flight players, and #Nichols is really coming on. #But overall they’ve been more vulnerable than other years we’ve seen, in my opinion.

#Mike, thanks for your no-nonsense answer today in the #Inbox about the #Packers identity. I think this concept is a holdover from #Vic’s days here, but it’s not one I could ever get behind. #As far as I can tell, it’s a fancy way to explain how a team wins games. #Because you never hear talk about a team’s identity when they lose.

I didn’t mean to be dismissive, but I think it is an outdated concept to a certain extent because these young coaches like #LaFleur, #Shanahan, #McVay, #Flores and a bunch of others do a lot more game-planning week-to-week based on opponents. #It’s just how the game is played now.

#Mike…are the roster rules the same during playoffs as they were during the season?

I’m not aware of anything different.

#Hi #Mike. #Hope you had a great #Christmas. #What did you think about the #Packers playing #Krys #Barnes in 95% of the snap count against the #Titans compared to #Christian #Kirksey and #Kamal #Martin’s 20%? #Seemed like we were playing lots of man as well and it seemed to work fantastic.

The #Packers have decided #Barnes is their best inside LB, and he’s earned it. I think I mentioned it a week ago and then it showed up again vs. the #Titans — #Kirksey seems to be a higher-impact player with fewer snaps, less of a workload. They’re getting more with less, and that’s not a bad thing. #Martin is a real wild card at that position. #He flies around like crazy, and when he’s in the right spot or makes the right move, he can make a high-impact play as well, but he also can be a little reckless.

#Ultimately do you think it will benefit the #Packers having so much riding on this game vs having it wrapped last week?

I don’t know. #We’ll just have to see. #If the #Packers win and get out of #Chicago healthy, all is well.
