Packers 2014 Mid Season Report | Which Packers Rank Highest

Packers Mid Season Review
The Green Bay Packers lost on Sunday night to the New Orleans Saints 44-23. This loss puts brings the Packers into their bye week and also means that they are at the halfway point of the season, eight games down, eight to go. Here is our mid season review.

Team MVP- Aaron Rodgers. Don’t laugh. This was an easy choice but don’t laugh.

Team MVP not named Aaron Rodgers- Jordy Nelson. Again, this was an easy choice. Nelson during the early weeks of the season was the only receiver making big plays down the field. Second on this list would be Randall Cobb.

Team MVP not named Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, or Randall Cobb- Corey Linsley. Corey Linsley was not expecting to be the Packers starting center in week one, but an injury to J.C. Tretter forced him into the lineup. Linsley has played so spectacularly that with J.C. Tretter’s expected return after the bye, Tretter may find himself on the bench, or possibly starting for the injured T.J. Lang, who may not be ready to go. Second on this list would be Devonte Adams.

Defensive MVP- Sam Shields- Shields has been exactly what they paid him to be. He made some big plays in the secondary at crucial times when the Packers needed them the most. Second on this list would be Julius Peppers.

Rookie of the year not named Corey Linsley- Devonte Adams- For weeks we were asking for somebody not named Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb to step up and start making plays in the passing game. Adams has come on strong in recent weeks, as expected from 2014 second round draft choice. Second on this list would be Ha-Ha Clinton Dix.

What we have liked so far- We have liked how the offensive line has played much better. They have finally come together and benching Linsley for Tretter may not be a god idea at this point. We have also like the play of secondary. This is the deepest secondary in the league, and trying to get a formidable passing game going on this bunch when they are at full strength is a difficult task.

What we have not liked so far- This team has been very unpredictable all season. That needs to stop, and now. We have not liked the play of Eddie Lacy. He needs to get it going, and now. We have not liked the continued decision to start Leroy Guion over Josh Boyd and Mike Pennel. We believe one of those two would be a better option.

What we would like to see- We would like to see the same team show up two weeks in a row. Right now, we have no idea how this team is going to perform on a week to week basis, they need to get some consistently.
