By the end of this week’s “Ty & Bob Pod” podcast episode, our longtime scribe had the 1988 newspapers out. It’s been that long since the Green Bay Packers offense was this anemic in the first half of games.
That cold stretch under Lindy Infante sure mirrors this one under Matt LaFleur.
Now, there’s a Halloween scare.
You may start to see empty seats at Lambeau Field into the winter months, too. As of this recording, a fan could snare tickets for less than $50 a pop on StubHub. Remarkable for the iconic franchise in “Titletown.”
Bob McGinn dissects the Packers’ 24-10 defeat to the Minnesota Vikings in painstaking detail. Once again, the problems were bigger than Jordan Love — functional receiving play would help! — but the Packers would like to see more out of their 2020 first-round pick, too.
And, once again, the Detroit Lions offered quite a contrast with a roster full of hardnosed players blasting the Las Vegas Raiders. What makes running back Jahmyr Gibbs unique? Could patience run out on Jameson Williams? And you’ll notice quite a difference between Amon-Ra St. Brown and Davante Adams this episode. The Lions (6-2) remain a fascinating team on a completely different trajectory than Green Bay. Whereas Lambeau’s getting quieter, Ford Field is electric.
Finally, stick around for some hearty Tyson Bagent analysis. (He’s not bad!)
