      Football Outsiders sees reasons for optimism with Packers guard Justin McCray The Green Bay Packers underwent an offseason of change not seen since 2006. The front office got an overhaul , as Ted Thompson handed over the reins to Brian Gutekunst and several longtime scouts departed. The coaching staff also looks very different after Mike McCarthy made changes at the offensive and defensive coordinator positions.There are also several spots in the starting lineup that will change from 2017, with some replacements coming internally and others resulting from new player acquisitions. Today, we will look at one of the former situations at the right guard position. Football Outsiders is known for their excellent work in football analytics, including the advent of the DVOA and DYAR stats (among many others). Once again, the analysts at FO have graciously agreed to hold a Q&A with us at Acme Packing Company, as Scott Kacsmar takes on our questions about the Packers.Stay tuned for the Q&A series running all week and check out Football Outsiders’ website and store , where you can find their 2018 Almanac.APC: Justin McCray appears to have the inside track to start at right guard this season. How did he perform at guard last season, and what do you believe to be reasonable expectations for him in 2018?It’s encouraging to think that McCray can be significantly improved with a full offseason of focus at a single position. Last year he was probably overvalued by the casual fan simply because he was able to perform adequately as an emergency replacement (few if any saw him even making it through final cuts). However, his level of play was little more than replacement-level overall.Still, McCray might well end up a plus run blocker, and if he can at least be adequate in helping to keep Rodgers upright, that is probably enough. Furthermore , Bryan Bulaga’s early return from ACL surgery puts McCray squarely between a pair of veteran players who are among the best pass blockers at their positions (center Corey Linsley being on his other side).All told, don’t expect McCray to contend for an All-Pro honor, but there is reason to hope that he will be solid enough to justify the Packers’ decision to allow Evans to fade away towards retirement I stead of bringing him back for another run._Stay tuned for part two of our Q&A on Tuesday._ We’ve had one magnificent, classic game already today, as the entire nation watched the New Orleans Saints beat the Los Angeles Rams at the Superdome. Now it’s time for the other premier matchup of the day, as the New England Patriots host the Green Bay Packers.The Tom Brady-Aaron Rodgers storylines have been all over this week Cheap Clay Matthews Jersey , as the two legendary number 12s take the same field for just the second time as starters. Rodgers and the Packers of course won the only previous meeting in 2014 by a score of 26-21, so Rodgers will be looking to repeat his marvelous performance in that contest.The Pats will not have three critical offensive starters in tonight’s game, however, most notably tight end Rob Gronkowski. Also joining him on the inactive list are running back Sony Michel and right guard Shaq Mason, which should make for some better matchups for Mike Pettine and the Packers’ defense.Join us here for the first half of tonight’s contest as we cheer the Packers on to victory.
