Packers Week 2 Takeaways
The Packers were back this week playing to a much higher level than in week 1 and looking like a well oiled unit. Here are the Top 3 things we learned from week 2.
- Week 1 was a fluke. I knew it was against the Lions but Aaron Rodgers was near perfect, Aaron Jones balled out, Davante Adams was terrific. The team is still very much contenders and when the defense/O-Line is fully healthy other teams should be worried.
- DeVondre Campbell looked really good. The 28 year old who signed with Green Bay in the offseason had 10 solo tackles, a pass defended and an interception. Looking like a good season in store for Campbell.
- The Packers still need a WR2. Marquez Valdez Scantling has had 12 targets for only 3 receptions, Randall Cobb has looked pretty solid so far but is far past his WR2 prime, and Allan Lazard, Chris Blair and Equanemious St. Brown are non factors. We need someone and soon.
The Packers play the 49ers next week that struggled to win against the Lions (blew massive lead late) and against Eagles (Closer than it needed to be) so we shall see.
