The defensive coordinator has helped guide the Packers to a top-10 ranking in points allowed per game.

Still, there were signs from the beginning that the Packers' defense could keep them in games, even if it couldn't win them outright. Coach Matt LaFleur probably lost track of how often in the first half of the season he said the defense did enough to win.

A month ago, all that meant nothing because the Packers couldn't marry it with an effective offense. But now that LaFleur and quarterback Jordan Love have found a rhythm, people have begun to notice a defense that in consecutive weeks has turned away Justin Herbert, Jared Goff and Mahomes.

"They're starting to look like some of the good defenses they've had in the past," a scout for a team on the Packers schedule said. "If they can get ahead and play with the lead, they can get after the quarterback. But they've got to be playing from ahead."

================

"I think I was the last man standing from the starters out of training camp," Nixon said.

"Same thing I said last week in the media: C.V. and C.B. been playing hella ball. C.B. earned every opportunity since he been here, and he's been showing it. We came in together in 2019, and I watched him grow, and I don't know what it is about this [Packers] G [logo], but it turns players into great players, for real."

See Kevin even ESPN reads what we write about in these forums, how many times has a poster brought up something and a day or so later it shows up in a big media article lol. I just stated all of this in the Idea for new defensive coordinator topic. I showed how they were a top-ranked scoring defense and could be top 5 by the end of the year and now ESPN writes this lol. All I can say is your welcome ESPN 😉
Just Imagine this for the next 6-9 years. What a ride it will be 🙂 (PS, Zero should charge for this)

I know of a few Packers writers that are at least aware of our little corner on the web. When I told one of them it'd be cool if they would credit their stories inspiration he said it'd be cool if we didn't copy the full article on our site. I said touché sir, touché.

Was that writer Aaron Nagler by any chance? He once sent me a sternly worded email for quoting an old article regarding his wedding. I think he was sore because of his recent divorce.

Instead he seemingly sat on it for five years waiting for a opportune time to shame PH. Granted I doubt he's going to bed at night thinking how can I shame that little Packers website?!?!? I just felt it was shady timing.

But, no. It wasn't Aaron.

Good play by the offense helps the defense. And vice versa.

Take the KC game as an example. There were only 5 "real" possessions in the 1st half. 3 for GB and 2 for KC. It's difficult to run up the score when they have so few opportunities.

Sure the stout red zone defense comes into play. But it helps when you limit Mahomes possessions. I recall teams saying that about A Aron12 ten years ago.

Likewise the defense when it is set up to stop the pass allows teams to run against them It takes time to move down the field at a blistering 4.2 yards per carry. By comparison passing defense is 7.0 per attempt (not per completion.) Longer lasting drives means fewer chances to score thus a lower point total.

In the end it's points that matter. GB is 19th in scoring at 21.5 per game. Defensively they are 9th at 20.3 per game. They have been getting better. They have faced the more difficult part of their schedule. Both numbers should improve over the last 5 games.
