CDTShareTweetShareShareAaron Rodgers has killed the Bears, who now must face him Week 1 without much to study Preparing for Aaron Rodgers in a predictable, antiquated offense was already enough to incite night terrors for defensive coordinators. Now imagine having to prep for him in an offense they’ve never seen, with no tendencies, a limited preview window from which to draw in preseason, and in your first game back as a defensive coordinator since 2011. Oh, and Ray Lewis and Ed Reed aren’t walking through that door. This is the nightmarish scenario facing Chuck Pagano to open the 2019 NFL season, as the Chicago Bears celebrate the league’s 100th anniversary against their most storied rivals, the Green Bay Packers. Chicago’s defensive personnel got worse replacing Adrian Amos with Haha Clinton-Dix and Bryce Callahan with Buster Skrine. Even before the departure of Vic Fangio, the Bears’ top-ranked defense faced a statistically-likely regression after a historic run creating turnovers in 2018. Going through the schedule, “@Chicago” should be considered a likely spot for a loss. The Packers aren’t going 16-0 and on the road against a good team who happens to be a division rival will always be a smart place to identify possible problem areas. But playing this game in Week 1, this particular season, may just create the ideal scenario for the Packers to go on the road and beat the reigning NFC North champions. Start with the mystery factor. Each Week 1 provides teams an opportunity to show unscouted looks, things opponents have never seen before — whether it’s plays or personnel groupings or both. Nearly all of what Green Bay will show the first month takes on a certain unscouted quality. This offense will evolve. There will be hints as to what it will look like, rooted in a West Coast philosophy developed under Mike Shanahan and modernized under his son Kyle before being weaponized by Sean McVay. Matt LaFleur blends these approaches. Last season in Tennessee, the Titans offense, marred by injury and inconsistency Womens Blake Martinez Jersey , didn’t quite get the hang of the new offense. Matt Ryan and the Falcons faced similar adversity in Year 1 under Kyle Shanahan. But LaFleur recognized the power run game worked, so he abandoned some of his core offensive tenets and let the Titans do the thing they were good at. The Packers may undergo a similar transformation process. Whatever this offense sets out to be in two weeks when they convene to learn the system, it will change. Evolution stalled under Mike McCarthy, and LaFleur’s alacrity with finding solutions on the fly must have appealed to Brian Gutekunst and Mark Murphy. For one week, that only matters in terms of in-game adjustments, but the lack of a set-in-concrete style makes the 2019 Packers particularly tricky to gameplan against given LaFleur’s willingness to adapt and adopt, finding pieces to add to his offense as necessary. Nathanial Hackett’s background in the McCarthy version of the West Coast offense should make the transition easier and provide a fallback plan should the rollout get rocky. If the Packers are down multiple scores at halftime (again), would LaFleur turn to Hackett and in an effort to try and go win one game say “Let’s call some plays we know these guys can execute” from the old offense? It’s possible. That makes Pagano’s job even more difficult. He won’t have a full picture of what the primary objective will be, much less possible adjustments. That offers a meaningful advantage for Green Bay. Matt Nagy saw this Mike Pettine defense twice (failing to score more than 24 points in either game despite the December matchup featuring a M*A*S*H unit for Green Bay) but never with the Acme Sackers and Adrian Amos. If Pettine goes small again with five and six defensive backs, the guys in the back end now offer more athleticism and reliability than a year ago, while the big bodies they will have on the field offer significantly more disruptive force. Za’Darius Smith, Preston Smith, Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark on the field with Blake Martinez provides a much more imposing front than a season ago, even if Pettine wants to play a bunch of defensive backs behind them. That’s not a group as easily overrun with Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen or blocked up in passing situations. Considering how infrequently Pettine blitzed Mitch Trubisky, instead forcing him to make throws, having two legitimate impact edge rushers only emboldens a game plan that has been effective in the past. Given how many rookies had to play last season and the free agent improvements on defensive in the offseason, there’s going to be an unscouted quality to this defense as well. How much better can Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson be? What if Oren Burks takes a step forward and can cover Trey Burton? The Packers don’t know the answers yet either, but they’ll have a much better idea than the Bears come that Thursday night. Even if the Packers lose, they’ll have the mini-bye to recover and make adjustments. The first month at least will be a learning period for LaFleur, Hackett, Rodgers and the offense. Pettine constantly works in his mad scientist lab trying to find new ways to stymie opposing offenses. And they’ll have lost a game they were probably going to lose had been in Week 6 or Week 12. With the rest of the reason to make up for it Demetri Goodson Jersey White , there’s a good case getting that kind of loss out of the way early sets the expectations. They keep the game at Lambeau in their back pocket to even the score, and maintain the understanding that losing to the Bears materially impacts the playoff race. It raises the stakes and intensity for every game to follow. For this conglomeration of reasons, the pressure sits squarely on Chicago, also celebrating its 100th anniversary, to win in Week 1. They won’t learn much from playing the Packers that early in the season in terms of useful information for a second meeting. They have to hold serve at home, and they’re facing Aaron Rodgers in prime time — where he’s a force of nature — with minimal source material to study. A loss sets them back, underscoring the narrative they only won the division because of injuries and Green Bay’s own internal dysfunction. They’d be working from behind the standings right away, and face the task of having to beat the Packers in Lambeau, something they couldn’t even do last year with DeShone Kizer spotting them points. It’s not that playing this game in Week 1 makes the Packers the favorites. They’re decidedly not. But it mitigates many of the factors that would otherwise be working in the Bears’ favor. A loss is less impactful early, less difficult to endure. Some struggle with a new coaching staff and an overhauled roster is to be expected. But if there’s an advantageous situation to get a win, to “sneak up” on a divisional rival, this is the moment, when they can legitimately show the Bears things they’ve never seen, concepts that legitimately sneak up on them. It’s a defensive coordinator’s nightmare: taking the test when he hasn’t studied. Aaron Rodgers has been the Bears’ boogie man for a decade. Chuck Pagano may already be losing sleep over it. With a closing window with Aaron Rodgers, Brian Gutekunst aggressively spent last offseason. What’s the best way to maximize Rodgers and this team’s talent in 2019?"Ted Thompson was always a tight poker player. When he bet, you knew he had something, and he’d wait you out, anticipating his move when he had pocket queens and could attack. To borrow a phrase from Marshawn Lynch, Brian Gutekunst is much more about that action, boss. He’s not exactly a riverboat gambler, a guy who splashes the pot raising 10-7 off-suit Aaron Rodgers Jersey , but he wants to be in more hands. He’s said as much in his opening press conference as general manager. He wants the Green Bay Packers to be in on every major piece out there. Thompson excelled playing the long game with the roster, though he inherited a Hall of Fame quarterback and some excellent pieces from an underperforming team. His ability to draft players and Mike McCarthy’s staff’s ability to develop them held the cornerstone of the team’s ability to sustain success over the last decade-plus. But Thompson rarely, if ever, went “all in,” according to observers. His biggest foray into free agency netted the Packers Charles Woodson on what turned out to be a below market deal, while getting tremendous value for Ryan Pickett. Thompson snagged Julius Peppers in free agency after his prime to supplement the roster, and had Thompson been slightly more successful in drafting players later in his career, Green Bay would be staring at far fewer roster holes in 2019. His plan would have worked had he sustained his drafting success. The premise of focusing on the draft should be celebrated. Thompson’s unwavering insistence that be not just the primary but at times only way to improve the team, however, held the Packers back. There’s a strong case to be made Gutekunst went all in last offseason, paying above market deals to aging veterans, believing Jimmy Graham and Tramon Williams would be more valuable to them than anyone else. He was wrong about that. But the moves he made on the margins were beyond reproach. Stealing Bashaud Breeland was a stroke of luck thanks to a freak injury, but 31 other teams could have signed him. Muhammad Wilkerson could have more than earned his money had he been able to stay healthy, a fault that can’t be laid at the feet of the front office. Likewise, blame McCarthy and Joe Philbin for Marcedes Lewis’ criminal underuse. Byron Bell looked like the kind of veteran offensive lineman Thompson refused to consider, and Bell demonstrated one of the reasons: he was horrid. That’s on Gutekunst, but the idea was the right one. Gutekunst made a splashy free agent move to bolster a position of need when he signed Jimmy Graham. He overpaid for Williams, a mistake in retrospect, but one easily overturned by cutting Williams and saving $5 million on the cap this spring. It was always a one-year deal if the Packers wanted it to be. The rest of the moves are on the margins, to add depth, and provide the kind of veteran resources Thompson teams often lacked. His failure to properly identify high-quality players should be considered a mark against Gutekunst and the front office Clay Matthews Jersey , though McCarthy should likewise receive plenty of blame for his deployment of Graham. But what the team tried to do was add a blue chip talent and supplemental pieces. They tried to add a second with the Khalil Mack trade, a fiasco whose truth may never be fully revealed, though it seems the reports that the Raiders only truly engaged the Bears are accurate and the Packers never fully had a shot. That is the best way to go all in. Identify one or two blue chip players who could elevate the team in a meaningful way and add smaller, value pieces around them. If they miss out on those blue chip players, that’s OK so long as they don’t overpay secondary guys to fill the void. That’s what teams like Washington and Oakland do. That’s how bad teams stay bad. The fear of going all in is rooted in the idea of short-term gains at the risk of long-term success. Generally, that means overpaying for players who aren’t worth the money, or paying a big-money contract to a play who may be worth it in Year 1, but by Year 3 is an albatross. The extra years are what often sells deals like this, which is why teams are willing to engage in that kind of negotiating. Chasing short-term success with short-term pieces shouldn’t be a deal-breaker though. Tramon Williams was a fine signing if they cut him or renegotiate. He had value for this team last year beyond what he provided on the field. One or two-year deals aren’t the enemy. Bad deals are. Long-term contracts shouldn’t be disregarded out of hand either, so long as they’re for good players at a reasonable price.Front offices don’t work with perfect information. Every general manager thinks he’s giving a contract to a good player if they’re paying him what a good player costs. It’s just that GMs are often wrong about who is good and who isn’t.The Packers have the coffers to aggressively add a blue chipper or two this offseason. They should be trying to do that. Rodgers needs help and one blue chip player at the right position is often worth more than two or three rotational guys. Green Bay has the financial flexibility to add both, adding top-end talent along with tertiary players. Couple that with three top-50 picks and Gutekunst has the tools to buoy the talent of this team in a single offseason even without having to overpay free agents. We know Gutekunst is willing and able to follow the prudent blueprint; the team did it last season. Some slightly better injury luck, better coaching, and a wider talent pool at need positions provide the Packers an opportunity to excel this year where they came up a little short last year. Finding the marginal players helps, and forgetting to do that part of it undercut some of the positive moves Ted Thompson made in his time as GM. Gutekunst’s dexterity in finding quality players on the edges eases the team building burden a bit, allowing the front office to narrow in on finding the one or perhaps two blue chip players who can take this team to the next level. But much like Thompson and his drafting, they can’t miss two years in a row. It would be better to sign no star than to sign the wrong one.
