Packers Morning Buzz: Good news on the injury front
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers, from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Eric and Pete writing on where the Packers are falling short when measuring them against the Falcons.
There’s a talent gap between the Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers, and until the Packers close it they’re going to have a hard time winning the NFC.
The two teams have met three times in the last year, and the Falcons have won all three. The games all have been in Atlanta, so that's an advantage for coach Dan Quinn’s team.
But the greater advantage is at the skill positions on offense. In Julio Jones, the Falcons have the best receiver in the game. Their No. 2, Mohamed Sanu, might be as good as any of the Packers’ receivers.
And the Falcons also have the best running back on the field when these teams meet. Devonta Freeman is a creative and dynamic runner who’s also a good receiver. As fast as Ty Montgomery has developed for the Packers, Freeman is the better player.
