Nelson on Cobb, Jones injuries: "As far as I know, it’s possibly not as bad as it could have been." That's all I've got, folks.


I don't know if this refers to James (who I assumed was OK) both, or Dr. Nelson doesn't have any clue about the severity of the injuries.

Actually, millertime, we just had so many moving parts. I believe they are still trying to figure out where to run, etc. An all new OL. I think Aaron is learning what it is like to have a running game, and so is McCarthy.

Add to that we have played some of the NFL's top defenses, and BOTH Super Bowl teams through just the first 5 games.

If Aaron hadn't lost Jones or Cobb today, it might have been a blowout, and discussion moot. Crazy.

Why is Aaron so emotionless out there? I can understand staying calm, but sometimes you need to rally the troops.

Hopefully they didn't favor McMillian.... because he was plying like a man out there. House that is


not his thing. He has said many times he is laid back No Cal and CM3 is the wild and worked up So Cal.

Cobb/Jones not as bad as it looked???

I believe Jones won't be too bad, but nothing M.M. says here eases my concerns for Cobb.

"We'll find out tomorrow," McCarthy said. "I'm hopeful for good information tomorrow once we get him back. James Jones, I'm hoping for good information there, too. We don't have a full diagnosis on either one of those guys."

I'd say yes, but also say they they're not emphasising it enough, which is also hurting the passing game. I'll try to explain what I mean.

Falcons WR Roddy White said one of the reasons the Falcons are struggling is because "This team doesn’t have an identity right now".


Right now, I don't think the Packers offense as a whole have a single identity which is hurtting the offense as a whole. On one hand you have Rodgers and the passing weapons, on the other you have the RBs and the blockers.

I think the focus on the OL's run blocking has hurt their pass blocking, which has hurt the passing attack because Rodgers doesn't seem to be as comfortible back there, as well as they no longer have Jennings, and may lose more WRs after this game, all which hurt the passing game.

But I also think the Packers playcallers (MM/Rodgers) wanting to pass it more often and ride the passing game has also hurt the Packers. As if they would give being a run first team a shot, it would often things up in the passing game as well as play action.

Though I did note that I could sometimes tell if it was a run or pass simple based on Lacy depth from Rodgers. I don't like tells and I'm sure the players and coaches are looking for tells a lot closer than I am.

I don't think there is issues with the passing game, I just find we are going for very low percentage throws way too often. 3rd and 2 and we try and connect a 20+ yard throw. I couple of times it looked that Aaron could have even ran for the first, but threw the low percentage pass instead. Also our pass plays still look like they are ran to the sidelines.

Lots of dropped passes today. Boykins looked lost for most of his time out there.

Losing two out of your three top targets is going to throw most teams out of whack for a while. I'm a little surprised they were able to do what they were able to do, really. Two crucial injuries like that can't be easy to adjust too. Add that to the poor pass protection and yeah, things probably aren't going to look that good. Other than the pass protection and a few drops, I thought things looked pretty good, all things considering.

A win is a win is a win but ........ did this look like the Packer passing game was in rhythm? Not to me. I'm as thankful as anybody for Lacy and the enhanced ability to run, and I'll blame good defense and bad O Line play for the lack of rhythm, but just the same, I'd rather see a Packer blowout - about 400 yards and 4 TDs passing, maybe about 45 - 17 - but I'm happy just the same hahahahaha.
