Green Bay Packers: Ready or not, Myles White and co., here’s the chance to shine

I can see it now … Myles White jerseys flying off the shelves after Sunday’s Green Bay Packers game.

Maybe not. But ready or not, game time on Sunday is coming for the Packers and there are many questions as to how in the world the offense is going to look and operate.  Sunday is going to be the biggest day in a number of players’ professional careers, including Myles WhiteBrandon Bostick, and Jake Stoneburner. White and Stoneburner, both undrafted rookies, will be making their pro debuts after being signed off the practice squad earlier this week.

With Randall Cobb ruled out and James Jones’s situation unclear, the receiving corps will look a little different. Jordy Nelson and Jermicheal Finley will be big targets for Aaron Rodgers but they won’t be able to do it all. The young receivers will have to step up and make an impact.

Luckily we have one of the better running games in the league right now to take the pressure off the passing game. We can expect to see Eddie Lacy perform well on the ground as he has been doing and exactly what we have expected him to do.

Now on the other side of the ball …

The Packers won’t have Clay Matthews or Nick Perry to turn to … and if Mike Neal is also sidelined that means two rookies, Andy Mulumba and Nate Palmer, would start.

Luckily the Browns haven’t had a prolific season thus far but they have beaten some notable teams including the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals. Plus the Packers’ defense was pretty good for the majority of the game against Joe Flacco and company.

The Packers are one of those teams that will get the job done even in the toughest of situations. They haven’t had a break with injuries since the start of the season but here we are sitting at 3-2 with a heck of a good chance to go 4-2.

With a very limited roster, the Packers will have their work cut out for themselves.
