As you meditate upon the game consider the following stats for the season.


Aaron Rodgers

Some spiked balls caused his completion percentage to drop and he is 12th in the league.
Pass plays over 20 yards and over 40 yards he is tied for first in the league.
He is tied for 8th in TD passes.
Yards per attempt tied for 7th in the league.

Jennings is 4th in the league in receptions,
1st in receiving yards,
tied for 6th in the number of receiving 1st downs.

Kampmann is tied for second in the league in sacks. Jenkins is tied for 14th and AJ Hawk is tied for 17th.

Nick Collins and Charles Woodson are tied for 4th in the league in INT's. Bigby is tied for 11th.

Crosby is tied for 9th in scoring.

Offense
Overall the Packers have the 8th best Offense.

Tied for 2 in the turnover ratio at a plus 4.

7th best passing team

15th best rushing team.


The Defense is 27th in yards given up.

Her is a stat to ponder.
Packers rushed the ball ONLY 21 times. Rodgers had 5 of those rushing attempts, so take him out of the equation.
Grant and Jackson rushed the football ONLY 16 times for 74 yards.
That is a 4.6 yard average, not too shabby!
Mike McCarthy claims each year to be committed to the run, yet he continually abandons the run like he did last night.
Not good Mike, not good!

Too true. I said last week that our best chance was in long drives to control the tempo of the game. "Run, run, run" I believe my direct quote was...

I think we can have a killer running game if we stick with it. As much as I hate the zone-blocking/cut-blocking thing, it works because it really beats up a defensive line and wears them out as the game progresses. In offenses that use it successfully, most of their ground yardage comes on long runs later in the game, because the d-linemen have been getting cheap-shotted for the first 2 or 3 quarters.

It simply doesn't work if you don't stick with it through the whole game.

I can't help but wonder if Grant is close to 100% yet. He just doesn't seem to have as much pop as he did last year.
Jackson was fighting for every yard.
If they just had some BLOCKING on the line, i think we could have some big gains. But they get met at the line and have to use all their power just to get a couple yards.

Yeah.

That reminded me of the Giant game last year.

But that was with a healthy Grant.

It shows one thing.. our oline can't handle speed along a solid defensive front.. disappointed I am in the growth of our third year interior lineman.
