I think you're mistaken about Greg Jennings. Sure, no one is scared NOW because he's been dinged up. When healthy, you damn well better believe people fear him. That's why he's double covered. He isn't the fast guy, but sure runs a pretty route. Kind of like an Antonio Freeman with better hands.

Did you all watch the 49ers game?
Alex Smith used his clunky Phillip Rivers type release and wobbled a pass over to Vernon Davis 40 yards down the field and Davis had no one within 8-10 yards of him.

When's the last time you saw Jermichael Finley that open?

It's a 33% knock on Finley, 33% on no running game threat to sell the play action, and 33% on receivers having NO break away speed.

The 9ers threat of a running game, opens up the pass. The threat of Moss opens things up for V.Davis and Crabtree.


There is no major THREAT to the defense like that on the Packers right now.

G. Jennings doesn't scare anyone anymore like Moss.
Finley doesn't scare anyone like V.Davis.
The running game is not bruising like Frank Gore. ONLY Cobb.

All of those non threats result in tight 1 on 1 coverage, nickel packages with DBs clogging throwing lanes, and daring Green Bay to run.

This literally FORCES Aaron Rodgers to play like...well..good old cellphone genital guy. Gunsling it through triple coverage and hope for the best.

Aaron's taking the hit, but he's in his way, calling out his team to raise their games up too.

Fall from Elite is starting to become a good description. From Elite to Very good.






It's all about abandoning the run, imo.

The Packers dominated the first half, sucked shit in the second.

I miss seeing his pretty routes. One always stands out when this is brought to attention.


Sorry for being off-topic.

Can someone...ANYONE...confirm that Rodgers called out the practice squad DBs either in this interview with Wilde or some other recent time? I posted this story and Bears fans keep bringing this up and calling him a douche for it.

I think it is 100% okay to call out the practice squad guys. Those are the guys that are giving you the practice and the opponent's scheme throughout the week. Maybe they are dogging it? Not only that, but Rodgers isn't placing blame everywhere else but himself. He is holding himself accountable and in being a leader, holding others accountable as well. Football is a team game...

One guy actually went as far to say practice squad isn't part of the team. That is where the convo ended...

I remember "back in the day" my coaches would always call out the 2nd stringers for dogging it while being the scout team for the 1st stringers.

Sounded to me like Mike McCarthy made the statement, then they asked Arodge about it in a radio interview. What's he supposed to say?

Ask bears fans, and they'd expect him to respond like Cutler or Urlacher would.

AR is off this year so far.
The pass early on, he had Nelson wide open, and over threw him. Last year he makes that throw. It would have been a TD.

And why don't they have anyone going over the middle, like Driver ALWAYS did? DD always made a big play on those quick throws. You have Cobb, who could do it too.

Yep. And we should have more plays with more running backs / tight end folks getting in there in the middle. Maybe just have one WR out there.

To be fair 2 of our TDs this past game were over the middle.

So Aaron Rodgers gets sacked more when not blitzed and performs better when blitzed. :-k

I'll work on those letters then.

Dear Opposing Defensive Coordinator,
Please blitz Aaron Rodgers more often.

Thank you.

Honestly, I think Rodgers has more success when he's being blitzed because there's less DBs blanketing the WRs. EVERYONE has had problems getting open this year, if I were playing the packers I'd rush 4 all game long. Rushing 4 is only a problem if your DBs can't shut down the opponent's WRs for 6+ seconds.

This is what I'm wondering. Last year, Jordy and Gregorious seemed like they were open all day long. Both of them drew attention off of guys like Driver, who ended up being covered by LBs occasionally and of course, Aaron exploited those match-ups.

What the hell happened? Are our receivers no longer elite as a group?

1. Greg's not been on the field, and when he has he's been hobbled. He's not a deep threat.
2. #1 allows Jordy to attract the most attention
3. More slants. More slants.
4. More Cobb. More Cobb.

But apart from Jones for shaking the dropsies, I don't think any WR or TE is playing up to expectations this year. And Rodgers hasn't been as accurate which compounds the issue.

I don't think it's a matter of not getting open. The group of players this year aren't just insync as they were last year. That being the offense. New center, new running back, and a lot of pieces moving around like Randall Cobbs new role. We just need to gel and figure out what our identity is. We're missing Greg and not having him on the field shows up. I can't blame them for not getting open entirely. It's also on Aaron and the Offensive Line. Teams think we can't run the ball so they sit back in 2 deep safteys man under often. I still think we're an elite group with the emergance of Cobb. We just need to do different things and establish a running game so we become less predictable and keep our defense from trying to be the hero of every game.

Jones has always been a good guy for those crossing routes. With Jennings out, he has had to run other routes
