Packers Overtime Podcast: Taming the Lions Without the Officials

Bill Huber

Aaron Rodgers was sensational, Allen Lazard came off the bench to save the day and Dean Lowry led a dominant run defense.

Now, does Rodgers need some help on the perimeter? That and more in our latest podcast.

Lowry made a great contribution. Was he stepping up or was it the Detroit Line? Forget PFF nonsense and trust your eyes.

Detroit's interior line is good so all the credit to Lowry. I'm a big fan of Ragnow's play. Lowry was one of their better players, for sure. No surprise, Lowry plays well and all of a sudden the run defense is good. Like with everyone, now you have to do it again.

Pettine today reference Lowry without being asked about him. I always think those are telling comments. It's easy to praise Lowry when asked about Lowry. But Pettine (and LaFleur the day before) did it on his own. As a follow-up, he was asked about Lowry.

He played like he’s capable of. There’s a reason we rewarded him with the contract, and he’s a guy who’s very prideful. Nobody is more upset with some of the games that he’s put on tape early than he is. He just had a look about him all week. I don’t know if I’ve seen a D lineman have a better week of practice. It was just ultra focused. He went out, and he executed. You could tell that he did a good job preparing and had a good understanding of what certain formations meant in the backfield sets, and he played, he used that information, I thought, pretty well. but the biggest thing was, I mean, he got great knockback, and he was able to locate the ball, separate, make plays. So he knows now that’s, as we say, caught on tape. That’s the expectation, that there needs to be a level of consistency now. We can’t have a couple average performances, and then turn it on. So for us to get where we want to go, for us to be great, that needs to be the norm.
