Green Bay Packers weakest link, Kevin King.
While he isn’t quite Johnathan Joseph, the Green Bay Packers have a problem with one of their cornerbacks, Kevin King.
Jaire Alexander gets a lot of attention as the star of the Packers defensive backfield which means that you rarely hear about what is going on with King. In fact, I probably wouldn’t know that he was such a big problem if I didn’t follow Justis Mosqueda on Twitter.
Now there is a chance that you don’t follow Mosqueda on Twitter and you have been missing the clear frustration going on in Green Bay.
A quick search will bring up some unflattering tweets about Kevin King, but I’ll just put some highlights below:
Those tweets are from the last 31 days, so you can imagine how long the frustration has been going on.
Now earlier you may remember that I compared him to Johnathan Joseph, but you might think that was hyperbole. So, to prove that it is accurate let me share some numbers with you. When you compare their numbers when targeted, here are the passer ratings against Kevin King, Johnathan Joseph, and Malcolm Butler.
Kevin King: 109.8
Johnathan Joseph: 112.6
Malcolm Butler: 82.5
Alright, so now that we have solidified the idea that King is the weakest link, Iets go a step further. What does this mean for the game against the Titans?
What should Titans fans expect?

In 2020, there have been four games where Corey Davis and A.J. Brown have been covered by players that have allowed passer ratings of 109.8 or worse. In those games, their combined statline is: 8 targets, 7 receptions, 99 yards, 7 first downs, 1 TDs
On top of that, we know that King plays on the (defensive) right side of the field on nearly every play.
While the Titans are pretty balanced, A.J. Brown is the receiver that they put on that side of the field most often.
To sum all of that information up, that means that Titans fans should expect the Packers to play their worst coverage player on A.J. Brown for the majority of the game. In fact, the only time that the Titans won’t get that matchup is if they choose to move Brown to the other side of the field.
That is a pretty good deal for Titans fans worried about the idea that the Packers might put their best cover corner on their most dynamic receiver. I wrote yesterday about how that wouldn’t solve anything anyway, but if they aren’t even trying it then it should be even easier for the Titans to score points.
