For Packers, Future is now with Sean Rhyan.

Green Bay Whis. – The Green Bay Packers had a great year building their winning streak for 2023 and look to continue that for 2024. It’s a balancing act with a rotation of veteran right tackle John Runyan and second-year quarterback Sean Ryan. Runyan has started every game this season, but Ryan has been used in one or two series in the second half of the season. However, in the last two weeks, the number of injections has been about 50 to 50. It’s clear the coaches think Runyan is a good player. So he started on a playoff team.

However, Runyan will become a free agent after the season. The Packers would like to turn the job over to Ryan, who they invested heavily in with a 2022 third-round pick. Ryan doesn’t think about the big picture. Instead, he’s focused solely on Sunday night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. “My grandmother always said if you look too far into the future, you can’t see what’s in front of you,” Ryan said.

“So I go every week, every day. I try not to think too much about the future. And as a team we’re trying to go 1-0 and that’s what we’re focusing on this week. I don’t know what the future holds. But what I do know is that we have the Vikings this week. And it’s a little more interesting to watch them.”The Packers mentality has always been clear. Take Runyan, a consistent, proven performer, and give Ryan valuable experience to see if he’s worth replacing Runyan next year.

After a disappointing rookie season in which he failed to play in a single game and ended with a six-game suspension, is Ryan good enough to be a starter? There’s only one way to find out. Since Week 8 against the Rams, Ryan has played 115 snaps. Contains 62 photos from the last two weeks. So is Ryan good enough to be a starter next year?”Yeah, I think he definitely has a chance,” offensive line coordinator Adam Stanavich said. “He still has a way to go.

I like the way he looks physically. Works well in the running game at the point of attack.“But he still has some way to go in pass protection. This would become his greatest work. Obviously, if you want to be a big player in this league, you have to be the best at it. As we move forward with him, that’s something we’re going to really focus on to take that part of his game to the next level.The figures confirm this opinion.

According to Pro Football Focus, Runyan has allowed two sacks and 20 total pressures in 526 pass defenses. That’s a pressure every 26.3 pass plays. Ryan allowed no runs and four pressures in 73 snaps of pass protection. That’s a pressure every 18.3 pass plays.

Replacing an offensive lineman is unusual to say the least. Former Packers coach Mike McCarthy likes to say that the best offensive line is the one that plays together. If a revolving door approach was the best option, more teams would do it. But there was another unexpected bonus, and Ryan needed the experience to make big decisions in the offseason.

“Obviously it would be good to think about the future. Yes, it would be nice to be a beginner. But now things are taking turns between me and Johnny, and I think that gives us an advantage over Ryan. “During the game [at Carolina], we were playing with Derek Brown, and I came up to him in the second series and he said, ‘Man, why do you keep changing guards?’ I can’t get used to anything about you.” I say.
