Who got too little publicity for their work in 2018? The APC writers have the answers."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCSTShareTweetShareShareWednesday Walkthroughs: The unsung heroes of the 2018 PackersJeff Hanisch-USA TODAY SportsThere was precious little for Packers fans to cheer about in 2018 Corey Linsley Jersey , but not everything was a complete dumpster fire. In the midst of the slow-rolling train wreck that was last season, several Packers players rose above the burning garbage around them and posted respectable, even very good seasons.These are their stories, as told by the APC writing staff. Who was your unsung hero in 2018?Paul Noonan - Kyler FackrellMr. Sackrell was a walking joke of a disastrous draft pick in his first two seasons, often being conspicuously destroyed by offensive linemen on national TV. Fackrell was an older draft pick and didn’t have much projectability left in his slightly undersized frame. Instead, the switch flipped this season, and Fackrell showed surprising speed and athleticism while recording double-digit sacks. Far from embarrassing himself on national TV, this past season he looked like one of the few competent Packer defenders while on the field. Fackrell isn’t a perfect player, but his speed and ability to generate pressure make him very useful, and given that he looked like a sure bust 365 days ago, the turnaround is remarkable. Matub - Also Kyler FackrellI came late to the writing party and Paul already took my pick. He also made a much more eloquent argument than I could. So, instead, here’s a tweet I made as an apology to King Sackrell back in November.Jon Meerdink - Corey LinsleyThe Packers’ offensive line was alternately awful and brilliant this season. From the highs of David Bakhtiari to the lows of whoever lined up at right guard, you could find something to either complain about or admire just about wherever you looked.Smack in the middle of all that (literally and figuratively) was Corey Linsley. The fifth-year center was a steady-if-unspectacular fixture on the line this year, appearing in every snap of every game for the second consecutive season. In his unbroken run of 1 Nick Perry Jersey ,074 snaps this season, Linsley was never once flagged for a hold [braces for takes from the rest of the NFC North SB nation commenters] and only earned a single penalty, an unsportsmanlike conduct flag that was offset by another penalty.In a year plagued by injuries and inconsistent play, that Linsley was at the very least present and not actively making the team worse is a big accomplishment.Evan “Tex” Western - Dean LowryLowry started 11 games in 2017, but when Muhammad Wilkerson signed a free-agent contract with the Packers last spring, the former Northwestern Wildcat was relegated to a backup and rotational role on the defensive line. However, just a month into the season, Wilkerson broke his ankle and forced Lowry into the starting lineup, and he put together a very solid season. Lowry recorded three sacks, a forced fumble, and three pass breakups, along with five hits on the quarterback. In addition, Lowry played every game, and he has now missed just a single contest (as a healthy scratch during his rookie year). With the Packers’ three starters all ending the year on injured reserve, Lowry remained a consistent Bryan Bulaga Jersey , solid presence on the line all season long, and he finished second to Kenny Clark among all Packers linemen in snaps. Without him, the Packers’ defense would have fallen apart even further in the final two months of the season. He probably will never become a Pro Bowl caliber player, but he can carve out a long, solid career as a third or fourth lineman on a team that runs a lot of two-man fronts like the Packers, who would be wise to re-sign him before he reaches free agency in March 2020.Bob Fitch - J.K. ScottHear me out.Corey Linsley will get his due from our other writers and Kyler Fackrell rightly earned his “Sackrell” nickname in the APC Slack chat. Since the rest of the roster didn’t really provide anything in the way of heroes, much less unsung ones, I chose to talk about J.K. Scott.A punter is best never heard from.As a direct inverse from the effectiveness of an offense, a punter is someone we don’t want to see.That being said, Scott punted an average amount of times and ended up with an average net yardage, an apt representation of an average offense.Unsung heroes aren’t always the ones that deliver the best performances every week; sometimes the hero you need is one nobody remembers. In one of the strangest and most memorable Packers seasons in recent memory, Scott delivered a completely unmemorable performance.Shawn Wagner - Corey LinsleyI’m with Jon. Linsley started all 16 games for the second consecutive season, which is a feat in itself in today’s NFL, much less a Packers offensive line that consistently weathers the storm of injuries. Not only was he healthy, he was effective and didn’t cost the team penalty yardage. With the revolving door at right guard all season Mason Crosby Jersey , Linsley was a stable interior presence and was a Pro Bowl alternate. Maybe next year he will earn a spot outright. Instead of the Super Bowl winner opening the season, the NFL is giving a nod to history for a milestone year."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShareNFL announces Packers-Bears game to open 2019 season on Thursday NightMilwaukee Journal Sentinel-USA TIt’s official: the NFL will kick off its 100th season with another edition of its oldest and most-played rivalry.Normally, the league begins each season with last year’s Super Bowl winner hosting a rival or other premier matchup on the Thursday of week one. However, for the 2019 season — the 100th campaign in the league’s history — the plan has changed, in a nod to history. The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will play in the upcoming season’s kickoff game, to be held at Soldier Field in Chicago. The exact date of the game will be September 5th, with kickoff taking place at 7:20 PM Central Time.Although the matchup had been widely speculated previously, the league made the announcement official on Monday afternoon during this week’s annual meeting. This will be the 199th meeting between the two legendary franchises in their storied history, and the 197th in the regular season. The Packers hold a 97-95-6 lead overall, and they took the head-to-head lead early on in 2017 with a 35-14 victory. That put the Packers ahead in the rivalry for the first time in over eight decades. Meanwhile, the playoff history is tied at one win apiece.In addition, the two franchises rank first and second in the number of members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame who are claimed by individual franchises. 28 individuals who spent significant time with the Bears are in the Hall, while the Packers claim 25.With this game taking the Thursday Night time slot, the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots will instead open their season on Sunday Night. Their opponent has not been announced yet.
