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.

throws like they always did with Donald
Driver?

I Seem to remember a few passes in the middle that didnt really connect; perhaps 1 that did ...

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.

We must be able to use the middle, without Finley.

Ya I expected Cobb to be used more over the middle. Gotta give it up to that D.

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

Still don't know why screen plays to Franklin over the middle has not been incorporated into our offense. The Bengals D got a huge advantage that our pass plays were always to the sidelines. They have run Cobb over the middle as well in the past I don't know why we didn't explore that either.

They were rushing four and getting enough pressure to leave the three LB's to cover the middle and also take away the screen.

This is a typical scenario where the Packers struggle. Anytime we face a four man front that is effective in disrupting ARod the offense does not fare well.

Four DL against 5 OL or six with a RB should offer enough protection for Arod to be able to slice up defenses but when he gets pressured like that there is not much room with seven guys in coverage.

Cobb was being covered by probably the best slot CB in the league in Leon Hall. It's no surprise he had a quiet day.

Fact is, the game plan was schemed around Finley stretching the middle.

Or at least likely was.

I don't know why they didn't send Bostick out there. Maybe they don't think he's ready.
