As the preseason marches on, the Green Bay Packers find themselves in the pivotal phase of joint practices and preseason games. With each event, the team inches closer to the moment when every play, decision, and snap holds the potential to shape their journey in the NFL.
This transitional period is a critical juncture for the Packers, where fine-tuning their strategies, refining their player rotations, and solidifying their roster becomes paramount. The collective focus shifts from mere experimentation to execution as the coaching staff meticulously hones in on the optimal starting lineups and game plans.
As the countdown to the regular season kickoff draws nearer, the Packers stand on the brink of a new chapter. They tread the line between measured optimism and the awareness of the challenges that await in the post-Aaron Rodgers era. Each day spent on the practice field and each play executed in preseason carries the weight of shaping their narrative for the months ahead. Let’s check out five questions they must answer before Week 1.
The Green Bay Packers must answer these five very critical questions before Week 1 of the 2023 NFL season is upon us.
Who Will Start For The Packers At Safety?
As the Packers approach the upcoming season, the question of who will earn the starting roles at safety looms large. Darnell Savage, a once promising talent, is likely to be one of the starting safeties. That’s the easy part.
oining him could be newcomer Jonathan Owens, who has been making strides in training camp and could secure a starting spot if he continues to impress. Tarvarius Moore, known for his athleticism and coverage skills, is another strong contender for a starting role. His experience and playmaking ability make him a valuable asset in the defensive backfield. Rudy Ford, primarily a special teams standout, might also be in the mix for increased playing time on defense due to his tackling prowess. Could the Packers even move Rasul Douglas to the backend of the secondary?
We are no closer to answering this question than when training camp began, as the candidates have been rotating alongside Savage. The clock is ticking and Green Bay figure it out quickly.
