Week 1, 2016

Although I gave my season predictions, I didn’t give insight into the Week 1 matchup v. the Bucks of the NFL, the Jacksonville Jaguars.  They’re the up-and-coming team in the NFL, just like the Bucks are (hopefully) the hot new team coming in!  Anyway, I digress…

The Jaguars have 2 Wide Receivers that will test this Packers secondary; Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson.  I believe they’re both 26 years old or younger and each had over 1,000 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns last season.  Sam Shields, Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins and company will be tested – and I think they pass the test.  It’s been quite some time, but this Packers’ secondary could be the best since Charles Woodson donned #21 and played corner.  The big issue is the defensive line, not only how thin it is in depth, but talent too.  Keep an eye on Blake Martinez, #50, Middle Linebacker…he’s shown all preseason and in training camp he’s capable of being a solid player at a position of need.

Eventually I’ll get into the whole “cutting Sitton” issue, but another time.  To keep it easy, and on topic….keep an eye on Jacksonville’s running back TJ Yeldon (the HB that followed Lacy out of Alabama), as the lack of depth on Green Bay’s DLine could be an issue.  I think the overall talent of Green Bay beats out the excitement of Jacksonville.  It should be a close game but I believe the final score will give Packer fans reason to believe this team is truly talented…

Green Bay 31
Jacksonville 20
