Perfect no more, injuries mounting for Packers
Question of the Day
If Clifton can’t go, the Packers could play Marshall Newhouse at left tackle, Evan Dietrich-Smith at left guard, Scott Wells at center, Josh Sitton at right guard and T.J. Lang at right tackle _ meaning Wells and Sitton would be the only starters at their natural positions.
Of course, the Packers showed last season they have an uncanny ability to shake off significant injuries.
“Everybody goes through different challenges throughout their season,” McCarthy said. “We’ve been hit with some injuries here and we’ll fight right through them like we always have. My confidence hasn’t wavered.”
Meanwhile, the Packers‘ defensive problems weren’t anything new, as Green Bay has been giving up too many big plays all year. It was a surprise against the Chiefs, who had been struggling on offense but managed to churn out a surprising number of clock-eating drives to keep Rodgers on the sideline.
After the game, Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji said the team has some issues to correct and knows the offense can’t bail them out every week.
“We just have to play better,” Raji said. “Offensively, this is not what everyone’s come to expect, but it’s not going to happen every week. Defensively, you can’t give up big plays, have the ball go over our head. We have to get off the field on third down.”
Now that the Packers know they’re not going to have a perfect season, they’re concentrating on a perfect ending.
“It hurts because that’s something special,” Driver said. “We always talk about, if you get the perfect season, then you’re part of greatness, but you take it for what it’s worth. Right now, the only thing we can do is go 18-1. If that’s 18-1 and you’re the Super Bowl champs, I don’t think anyone cares about the perfect season after that.”
