I didn't really care about the fake, not at all, to be honest I really love the gutsy calls on special teams this season. That saved 7 yds, because I'm pretty sure Crosby would't have split the uprights from that distance based on the performance this season. However the final play call and its execution was horrible. Once they split out Crosby the play was obvious. I'd rather had run the fake out of the FG formation. That said, my call would have been "take a delay of game penalty and take an easier shot to nail them near their endzone."


I've liked a lot of the special teams calls this year as well, but this one didn't feel right to me. I think given the field position, going for it instead of trusting Crosby to hit the long ball is a good call.

However I still have trouble with the idea of taking the reigning MVP of the league off the field and letting anyone else pass. I understand that it gives opposing special teams coaches something to plan for now, but if you're going to pick up 7 yards via the forward pass... I would SO much rather see Aaron throw it out of a normal offensive formation.

Oh, and also punting and pinning them deep would have been fine as well. I thought the defense was playing a great game, so turning the field position in our favor may have just been the right call.

I am a bit torn too. Execution was poor. I wouldn't have minded a pooch punt there. Put them down on the 5-10. I thought it was beyond Crosby's effective range as I didn't want a FG attempt. they certainly were struggling offensively so they needed to do something to get a score.

All in all A failed pass did not give them the ball in the same spot as a missed FG would have. I was glad for that.

YAY... BIG YAY.

The Cardinal coaching staff will be watching yesterday's game film.

It is just one more thing the Cardinals have to prepare for and practice against in their short week going into next Sunday. Keep the Cards coaches, wondering, worrying and confused on what they need to focus on and prepare for in 6 days.

Don't understand the yays. If you're going to go for it on 4th down, and you're going to make it fucking obvious that you are going to go for it, it better be rodgers throwing the football. absolutely terrible decision to even call the play, and having now seen that disaster of a play design the decision is 100x worse. disgusting.

my first post in a long time and it is a negative one.....I said WTF when they were lining up for the fake FG. A left handed FG kicker rolls to the left and then throws back to his right down field? Heck that's even tough for Rodgers at times. That was a bad play call as are most of Mike McCarthy play calls.
thanks Post received 1 applause.

Nay!
Whose ever idea it was to call that play with that planned execution needs their head examined. It looked like a cluster fuck right from the get go.
I can understand not having Crosby kick it since anything 50+ makes his head spin, but certainly the Packers have something better than that kind of shit in their playbook.

My question is did they use a trick play against a weak team so it had a better chance of working, even though they shouldn't need it, or did they us it against a weak team so it doesn't come back and haunt them? :-k Shrug Laugh

I think Mike McCarthy wants to run some plays like that to make a statement to his team. After the fake kick scored a TD against the Bares, he made some comment about that. It seemed to me it wasn't whether or not the play "worked," it was more about attitude.

I think Mike McCarthy wants to make some sort of a point with that shit.

Seems almost like he's setting some weird long range shit up for the playoffs too. He knows all these plays are gonna get reviewed and analyzed around the league.

I just wish McCarthy would use that kind of imagination and trickery on offense. In the past I hated the trick plays on offense like double reverses and flea flickers, but with someone like Cobb to either run with the ball or grab the attention of the defense, it's a lot easier to pull them off. Especially since we've had problems moving the ball on offense in a few games - something like that can create a spark if it works, worst-case scenario you lose 6 yards and you're punting anyways.

Maybe we need to bring back James Lofton. Remember his 71-yard TD run on the double reverse against the Cows in the Playoffs?

I wanna see Mike McCarthy call one of those. I wanna see the opposing Defensive Coordinator get so mad he throws his headset to the ground. That would be cool.
