But Green Bay was once again playing shorthand and that too without defensive coordinator Joe Barry, who was in COVID-19 protocol.
I think this defense is good, and I think it has a chance to be really good if it’s at full force. Imagine having a healthy Jair Alexander to pair with Kevin King, Eric Stokes and Rasool Douglas. And picture a healthy Za’Darius Smith to add to a group of pass rushers that already includes Preston Smith, Ration Gary, and Whitney Mersillas.

Let’s start with a disclaimer that I spend far less time in the actual Big Ten cities than you probably think.
I don’t think I’ve ever dined in Bloomington, Indiana, because I’ve always lived in Indianapolis. For trips to Michigan and Michigan State, I usually stop by the Detroit airport for convenience. I avoid living in West Lafayette because, well, it’s West Lafayette. No food in College Park, Maryland, because I live near the Baltimore airport.
So that a lot of good spots end up in college towns. And that means there are two spots on my list that are a little off the beaten path, but here are my top five.
