Consistency is what powers the Packers’ passing game

Hi Insiders! Will this be a classic run-the-ball and stop-the-run game? It will be fun to see Capers’ new wrinkle to defend the run.

Why, hello Milton. I just felt a need to say that. That’s the marquee matchup in this game – how the Packers decide to defend Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen. Chicago’s receivers combined for one catch against the Steelers. So it’s pretty easy to figure out what the point of emphasis needs to be against the Bears.

Should I be excited about watching the Packers twice within a four-day span, or upset I will have to go 10 days without another game? Let’s get out of this one healthy and rest up 10 days and get back at ‘er! Go Pack Go!

If the right gap opens, his opportunity will come. The explosiveness is there. It was on display on his three catches of more than 20 yards this season.

Am I the only one who thinks Trevor Davis is too timid for the punt return job? Fair-catching with a massively open field in front of him. Returning punts with 15 yards of space at the catch and the return is only two yards. What am I missing here?

Ron Zook explained on Tuesday the Cincinnati gunner tripped and fell down late on the punt, which made it appear Davis had more time and space. I haven’t had an issue with his approach so far. Davis is averaging 10 yards on his seven returns so far with a long of…
