Wayne Larrivee is the Green Bay Packers radio play by play man.
Wayne joined Ed & Steve to talk about this weekend’s game between the Ravens and Packers at M&T Bank Stadium.
Steve asks: What level is Aaron Rogers playing at right now?
Wayne replies: He is playing very well, the game against Cincinnati was a rough spot, but that’s a good defense. The other three weeks he has played very well.
Ed asks: What is the impact of not having Clay Mathews, people say they wont be able to get a good pass rush?
Wayne replies: I think the will be ok, They had five sacks last week and Mathews only had one of them. they’re developing some younger talent and they will be fine.
Steve asks: What are your reasons that the packers are 2-2?
Wayne replies: Well i think they’ve played a lot of playoff teams and 2 of them on the road, so thats why I would say they are 2-2.
Ed asks: What kind of defense are we going to see from Dom Capers this weekend in Baltimore?
Wayne replies: They like to do a lot of different things defensively but they must stop the run. I know the ravens haven’t run the ball particularly well this season, when they do pound the rock the win so its important that the Packers stop the run.
Ed asks: How is Eddie Lacy performing this year?
Wayne replies: He is playing well, the Packers finally have a consistent back to hand the ball off 20 times a game if they need to.
Steve asks: you watched the PBS report a League of Denial right? What were your takes on the special?
Wayne replies: I did watch it and it makes you wonder what the NFL knew and how long they’ve known it for. I don’t know how much the NFL knew, I don’t have any research or evidence about how much they knew?
Steve asks: What are your thoughts on the NFL expanding the playoffs with another two teams?
Wayne replies: Well I’m a traditionalist with those things, I don’t like the rule but I understand where they’re coming from. I think the NFL wanted to make more money after the players association rejected extending the regular season so this is the NFL’s way of making that money back that they missed out on.
