The Green Bay Packers trail the Chicago Bears 14-3 (21st Sep 19 at 7:21am UTC)Quote Reply
at halftime , and the slim postseason hopes for this team are about to flatline. The Packers continue to struggle on third downs, going 3-for-7 in the first half, and they have been stuck with terrible field position most of the afternoon at Soldier Field. That, combined with an early injury to running back Aaron Jones and a depleted defense, has led to a two-possession deficit at the break.The Bears struck first, as Jordan Howard split the Packers’ defense up the middle for a touchdown run. The Packers pulled within 7-3 with a Mason Crosby field goal, but the Bears put up another score late in the second quarter as Tarik Cohen found the pylon. A late Hail Mary attempt from Aaron Rodgers hit Davante Adams in the hands, but he could not haul in the football and it fell incomplete. The Packers will receive to start the third quarter.Rodgers is 9-of-14 passing for 92 yards, while Jamaal Williams leads the team in both rushing and receiving. He has six carries for 29 yards plus a pair of receptions for 34 yards.If the Packers do lose this game, they would need the Minnesota Vikings to lose to the Miami Dolphins, plus a loss by either Philadelphia or Washington Jermaine Whitehead Jersey , in order to stay mathematically alive for the postseason. However, Minnesota leads Miami 21-10 at the half of that game.Join us in the comments for the remainder of today’s game.Game Updates from APC StaffA Twitter List by acmepackingco Game Updates from Packers MediaA Twitter List by TexWestern Outside of the skill positions, the Packers’ former general manager had difficulty getting high-caliber production from valuable draft picks." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesAcme Packing Company homepageHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityFollow Acme Packing Company online:Follow Acme Packing Company on TwitterFollow Acme Packing Company on FacebookFollow Acme Packing Company on InstagramLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchAcme Packing Company main menuFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options for:Jason Spriggs adds to the boom-or-bust trend for Ted Thompson’s second-round picksTwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailPhoto by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty ImagesTed Thompson’s troubles over his final few draft classes have been noted in detail throughout the past year as the Green Bay Packers took their lumps during the 2018 season. But with the release of offensive tackle Jason Spriggs on Tuesday, Thompson’s second-round selections, in particular, become another subject of scrutiny.Spriggs’ departure is the second from the Packers’ 2016 draft class, following fellow offensive lineman Kyle Murphy who was a casualty last December. Green Bay’s offensive line depth is minimal at tackle this training camp, due in part to the organization’s striking out with its two build-through-the-draft choices that season. Spriggs, especially, was given a long leash and plenty of opportunities to prove himself and the Packers finally got tired of waiting for the Indiana product to take the next step — even with Bryan Bulaga a free agent after this season.But Spriggs was just one of a number of second-round picks that fizzled from the Thompson era. Over his final three drafts, Thompson selected Spriggs Aaron Ripkowski Color Rush Jersey , Quinten Rollins, Josh Jones, and Kevin King with his second-round choices. Although Jones and King could very well still reward the Packers for their patience through injuries and inconsistencies, Thompson’s success has been far from impressive.Going even further, Thompson’s second-round picks as a whole were of the boom-or-bust variety as seen in the table below.Second-Round Picks Under Ted ThompsonYearSelectionPositionYearSelectionPositionFor every Davante Adams and Nick Collins the Packers drafted, they were often met with a Pat Lee, Jerel Worthy, or Brian Brohm. Even players like Daryn Colledge and Brandon Jackson, who filled various roles during their Green Bay tenure, failed to live up to the lofty expectations often given to second-round choices on a draft-and-develop squad. Others like Eddie Lacy shined momentarily before falling flat, while those like Casey Hayward went on to have better careers outside Green Bay. Green Bay’s wide receiver picks in the second round , however, were significant ones under the Thompson regime and credit should be given to his staff for finding gems such as Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Adams.But outside of the receiving corps, the swings and misses on second-rounders like Spriggs have been hard to stomach. No one can fault the GM for taking a chance on a superbly athletic, high-upside offensive tackle to plan for the future. The problem is that when the busts ran their course over the last decade, the Packers have been left with many position groups scrambling to find suitable replacements. And at offensive tackle, that is where the Packers are once again.
