Packers news: COVID-19 hits the Packers at the worst possible time

Published

For a year and a half playing football in a global pandemic, the Green Bay Packers have done a very good job of keeping COVID-19 out of their facilities.

Three days before possibly the biggest game of their season, COVID-19 finally arrived at 1265 Lombardi Avenue at the worst possible time.

When the news broke Monday that not only defensive coordinator Joe Barry tested positive, but also wide receiver Davante Adams, the game against the undefeated Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night got a very different feeling.

How will the Packers adapt without their defensive caller and without their best receiver in a game that could very well determine the only bye in the NFC? It’s not clear who will call plays for defense (my bet is on secondary coach Jerry Gray), but it’s not an ideal situation either way.

In terms of losing Adams, things may not be as bleak as they seem. Sure, they want the best receiver in the game on the field, but the Packers are 6-0 without Adams under Matt LaFleur. Adam’s absence forces Aaron Rodgers to spread the ball around and those six wins have led to big games from Allen Lazard, Robert Tonyan and also Aaron Jones taking passes from the backfield.

Las Vegas clearly doesn’t like Green Bay without Adams, as the line went from 3.5 to +6, a 2.5 point shift after the news about Adams broke. His absence would make an arduous task even more difficult.

Don’t tell LaFleur and Rodgers what the odds are. They can easily navigate the Packers through the desert like Han Solo navigated the asteroid field with the Millennium Falcon.

There is still a chance that Adams and Barry will be available on Thursday, but they have to test negative twice over a two-day period. False positives are very rare in COVID testing, but hey, I’m telling you there’s still a chance.

How about good news? LaFleur left open the possibility that Green Bay could get Marquez Valdes-Scantling back on Thursday night, saying there is hope for that. This would be huge with the likely absence of Adams.

Even if the Packers get a speed bump against Arizona, they still have full control of the division because the other three teams are either inconsistent or just plain bad.

Rodgers had arguably his best game of the season so far and he has yet to play a good one against the Cardinals.

I would say that many of the (silly?) Shirtless Packers fans during the December and January games at Lambeau Field are just as legitimate holders of this record as this man.
