Haven't re-watched the game yet, but it sure seems like after Finley went down, that we all but stopped throwing to the middle? Everything seemed either at the sidelines or close to them. Even Aikman and Buck at the end were talking how there was no S in the middle anymore.

Hell on the last drive the defense front was doing nothing but trying to knock those quick passes down. If they had done a simple fake and while having Nelson fake like he was blocking and run a quick crossing route they would have had an easy. TD.

I was VERY, VERY disappointed with the play calling this game.

I will give this one to the Bengals pass D. They played extremely well Sunday. Rodgers was pressured often and our guys were covered well, especially in the red zone.

Even those few times when Rodgers had all day it took forever to find someone to throw to and even then they were never wide open.

The seam pass that put Finley out of the game was very well covered. I didn't like the hit but he had two defenders right there.

Finley may have eventually been able to crack the middle of the field but when he went down that hurt badly the way this game went.

I agree. Quarless did a fairly good job blocking, and he has shown before that he can go over the middle, plus the quick slant to the wideouts has always been a staple for the Packers. I wonder why we didn't see more of it. I will stop WAY short of accusing Mike McCarthy of bad playcalling, but it sure would be interesting to hear what his thought process was in not going to that area of the field.

It looked to me like they were dropping LBs and Ss to that area in coverage almost all day and only rushing 4.

They took out Finley on the first series.

He would have been pwning the middle.

Quarless and Taylor didn't get it done. They played ok, but Quarless dropped one or two initially.
