We need to be using Ty and Aaron Jones the same way the Bears are using their backs. The problem for the Bears seems that they do it so much their QB forgets he has WRs. I like to think we can do that without forgetting about our own WRs.

I just want to see the Packers fully utilize Ty like they were doing for stretches of the last couple seasons. Call your play, audible depending on what the defense is showing. If they're in dime and Ty is outside, bring him into the backfield and either pound it up the gut or play action. If they're playing run, move him outside and pass. He's a mismatch on the ground against DBs and through the air against LBs. There's plenty of opportunity to exploit those mismatches. Then when the defense starts keying in on Montgomery - start mixing it up with Williams who is a good back in his own right.

It's pathetic that we can't figure out how to use a guy who can be a we or rb on any single play. Maybe Philbin is the guy who can make the most of it but the way last night went just didn't allow us to do it. Time will tell

I don't think it's an issue of not being able to figure it out so much as McCarthy being really big on trying to set the tone for a game, and that's a big part of how he gets teams ready for a team during the week. Unfortunately we don't seem to have regular success running the football until we've had success through the air, so in a lot of ways we're not a conventional team. If we were getting 3-5 yards a carry running it up the gut, McCarthy would be a genius and it would take all kinds of pressure off Rodgers and the O-Line. We're just not getting it done in the early game though and haven't done so consistently in some time.

Fact is, I was pulling people in off the ledge, even before Aaron came out of the tunnel. This team gets down like that all the time. Probly in 3/4 of their games. But, and I also point this out all the time, they are NEVER OUT of any game. I mean, look at the comebacks and heroics Aaron has shown us. They ALWAYS HAVE A CHANCE, no matter how far they are down.

I still think it's annoying though. 🤣

And one more thing, props to Geronimo and Cobb. I shit talked both those dudes in the preseason, but they stepped up last night. Cobb showed his old change of direction on that punt return, then on that TD he turned around and OUT RAN people! Good to see. 👍

After seeing what we had in kick-off and punt returns is there really a spot for Davis? I thought we did well enough that we don't need to waste a roster spot on the guy.

We should likely keep 3 QBs active for here on out if Aaron's knee is suspect.

It's addictive Cheesey. I find chatting and watching the game a lot more enjoyable than watching alone. It is much better than a sports bar because we are all cheering for the same team. Some guys are half full, some (me) tend to be half empty when cheering. Different personalities make for a good time.

Go scroll up I the chat and see when Clay got his bonehead penalty. I laugh when I see Beast's post.
