  • It's the number one scoring offense versus the number one scoring defense, and it is gonna be a lot of fun.

  • Rams, Packers, Max Europe First year What do you think?

  • The most important matchup in this one?

  • It's Donald against the interior offensive line.

  • To me, there are lots of good matchups, but that's the most important one.

  • They have a Pro Bowl caliber center in Green Bay, but because of back Thierry's injury, um, he's going to really have to help the interior.

  • The guard next to him is the weak link on that Packers offensive line.

  • And so is it gonna take one guy?

  • Or do they have to devote two offensive linemen, basically, to stopping Aaron Donald if he can suck up those extra resource is that makes the entire line better, which means they could get really pressure and could be very effective against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

  • So to me, it comes down to Donald.

  • Is he healthy?

  • And if he is, I think it's pretty clear the Rams is gonna have to send.

  • You're gonna have to use not just one linemen to stop him, and that kind of that will affect the entire game.

  • You could be right.

  • But I gotta tell you, I got my eyes on Jalen Ramsey versus of Davante Adams.

  • And the reason why I say that Max is because if you're paying attention, you see that the confidence that Aaron Rodgers hasn't Davante Adams has elevated exponentially this year.

  • 415 receptions, 1374 yards.

  • UH, 70 70 77.2% of the time.

  • He's targeted him.

  • They've connected.

  • He's got a lot of faith in this dude, and he's targeted him 149 times.

  • And so when you look at that, that's considerably more than he's done with anybody else.

  • I think next on the list is, like 63 the Erin Jones even market value.

  • Scanlon has been talking to 63 times.

  • I think when you look at it from that perspective, you know that him and his relationship, that chemistry he has with Davante Adams, he's going to try to exploit that.

  • And if Jalen Ramsey, along with the rest of the Rams secondary, can find a way to neutralize that, that's going to go a long, long way.

  • Of course, Andrew Donald them gonna be trying to get to Amber Rogers.

  • But Aaron Rodgers is so brilliant.

  • I think that no matter who the defensive linemen are coming at him, don't get me wrong.

  • He pays attention.

  • You don't wanna get sacked all the time, but he knows how to get rid of the ball.

  • He knows how to throw the ball away.

  • He's patient.

  • He knows what he's doing better than most, and I just think it's a situation right now.

  • They could work around that.

  • But they can't work around.

  • Is if receivers can't get open, particularly his favorite target.

  • That's what I'm looking at.

  • Well, you definitely highlighted the sexiest matchup.

  • No doubt.

  • I mean, Jalen Ramsey has been.

  • There are very few corners in the history off the NFL who can genuinely shut down a number one receiver.

  • Ramsey has been so good this year.

  • I almost feel sorry for the for the number one receiver on the other team because in this day and age, when every rule favors them and it's almost impossible to do, he's been spectacular.

  • That's absolutely the matchup toe watch for entertainment purposes.

  • But in terms of the actual goings on, on the field what's actually strategically going to affect the game.

  • If you're missing your best tackle and they're now Aaron, Donald is lined up against your weakest link on the offensive line.

  • That is an enormous strategic advantage for the Rams, because they're going to have to help.

  • And as soon as they do, if the centers helping out there's another off, there's another defender who is gonna be a lot better than it otherwise be.

  • And that entire thing means no pocket for Aaron Rodgers.

  • Pressure on Aaron Rodgers.

  • And it means it's a ball game.

  • Alright, hackers by 6.5, we'll leave it there, fellas.
