The Packers Refuse To Address Their Biggest Issue and Will Likely Lose Another NFC Championship Game
(Patty Cake, Patty Cake, Baker's Man)
(Our starting QB getting mauled by our new starting MLB)
Oren Burks and Devondre Campbell are the starting middle linebackers for the Green Bay Packers and that is flat out inexcusable following two straight NFC Championship losses to teams that had such an enormous advantage at the inside linebacker spot that it was downright embarrassing to watch. 285 rush yards allowed to the 49ers in 2019 when Blake Martinez refused to take one step forward and met every running back 5 yards past the line of scrimmage followed by having to play against Devin White who went for 15 tackles and a fumble recovery while Christian Kirksey led our linebacker corps in tackling with a titanic four. So few that I am forced to write it out as a word instead of a number. It's mind bottling that Brian hasn't taken notice of this. Adding Christian Kirksey in 2020 and now Devondre Campbell in 2021, how on God's green earth do you sleep at night with that as your answer. I don't know if it's analytics or pride, but something has got to change if this team is going to get over the hump and win an NFC Championship game and then a Super Bowl. Let's hope the Jordan Love era is rich in success because passing on Patrick Barr in the 2020 draft could literally cost this franchise half a handful of Super Bowl rings. Not to mention missing Devin Bush for Rashan Gary (spare me the Gary praise). And the repeated failure to address one of football's most pivotal positions: middle linebacker, the quarterback of the defense, the primary run stopper, the guy everyone talks about on the best defenses of all time; will likely continue to haunt the fortune of the soon-to-be-without-Aaron-Rodgers-and-Davante-Adams Green Bay Packers. Good luck on the sleep, Brian.
Editors Note: Brian = Brian Gutenkusnt. I just hate typing his last name.
