Wednesday Cheese Curds: Packers are ready for Aaron Jones’ return An under-covered aspect of a given team’s season is how much the roster changes from week to week and month to month.Between the return of Aaron Jones from suspension and the gradual recovery of both Oren Burks and Josh Jones Mike Daniels Jersey , the Packers stand to get three significant players back this week, changing the complexion of both their offense and defense in significant ways.What each player actuallyWhat each player actually contributes is almost beside the point; that they’re available at all changes the decision-making process significantly on both sides of the ball.How will Aaron Jones integrate into the offense? Will he get significant snaps right away? If so, in what capacity? Who will have to leave the roster to make room for his return? How will Oren Burks affect the packages Mike Pettine calls? Will he take snaps from Blake Martinez or work alongside? Will Josh Jones be enough to up the game of a lackluster safety group?All these questions come from the most minimal of roster decisions, but they have huge consequences for the team as a whole. These and other small roster moves will be very much worth watching as the remainder of the season plays out. Time for Packers to turn Aaron Jones loose in running game | Packers NewsWith Jones back on the active roster for Sunday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein doesn’t think he should be in a complementary role. He thinks Jones is just what the doctor ordered to jump start the running game and hopes Mike McCarthy agrees.What You Might’ve Missed: Blocks from the backs | Packers.comTo get a worthwhile playing time, Jones is going to have to take snaps from either Jamaal Williams or Ty Montgomery. That shouldn’t be an issue from a production standpoint, but he’ll also have to show he can pass block. As this review by Mike Spofford shows, both Williams and Montgomery have already shown they can.No worries now for G-Mo: Packers’ Geronimo Allison emerges | ESPNBetween the arrival of Jimmy Graham and three explosive rookie receivers, Allison spent a lot of the offseason as a presumed bystander in the Packers’ offense. But two weeks into the regular season, he’s shown exactly how valuable a cog he can be.To take the next step Authentic JK Scott Jersey , Packers defense needs improved safety play | Packers WireOur Peter Bukowski argued this week the Packers should explore a trade for Earl Thomas, but whether the Packers go that route or not, it’s hard to argue the safety group has been anything special. For the overall defense to improve, the Packers have to get better on the back end. Finally, you know how any time a player of note changes teams a photoshop of that player in their new jersey appears online immediately? This is how that photoshop comes together. Pretty amazing how he did it in only two minutes!Cheese Curds, 10/1: Packers win, but Rodgers and McCarthy may be at odds Whatever good feelings resulted from the Packers’ shutout win over the Bills seem to have dissipated quickly. We’ve quickly moved on to Rodgers vs. McCarthy, Part...I don’t know, how many parts have there been?We seem to go through this every couple years. The Packers start a bit slow and either drop a game they shouldn’t have lost or eke out a win over an overmatched team. Aaron Rodgers will say something mildly to moderately passive aggressive. Mike McCarthy will decline to respond in kind. The media world will speculate until the Packers win again. Then Aaron Rodgers will do something mildly funny in a post-game press conference to show everyone that he saw what they wrote that week and everything will be over.That is, unless Youth Antonio Morrison Jersey , there really is something to the latest iteration of this supposed feud. Maybe the Packers are really on the brink of imploding because two adult men can’t figure out how to share their feelings appropriately. If that’s true, it says a lot more about the Packers as an organization than a feud between Rodgers and McCarthy ever could.Aaron Rodgers: Packers were ‘terrible on offense’ despite victory | ESPNFeud or no feud, the offense wasn’t stellar on Sunday and Aaron Rodgers has things to say about that.Dougherty: Potential McCarthy-Rodgers rift requires resolution | Packers NewsPete Dougherty very much counts himself among those worried about a Rodgers/McCarthy feud and reads the tea leaves to find out what’s really going on in this relationship.Fackrell’s three fourth-quarter sacks cap big day for pass rush | Packers.comKyler Fackrell had five sacks total in 2016 and 2017. He had three on Sunday. I don’t understand how this happened either.Packers notes: Blake Martinez loses his cool; pass rush gets quick fix | Packers NewsWhile Kyler Fackrell was having an unexpected moment in the spotlight, Blake Martinez was finding himself the focus of some unusual attention as well. His brief tussle with a Bills lineman ended with the Packers’ linebacker earning a flag, even if he wasn’t the instigator of the conflict.Finally, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix collected his third pick of the season, making a decisive move on the ball and leveling Bills’ wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin in the process. That makes for a pretty good monday morning highlight.
