A couple of things stand out to me:
Positives
  • Rodgers only sacked one time, against a pretty good defense.
  • 176 rushing yards - woo hoo.
  • Mike Neal played solid.
  • 31 points and a win.


Negatives
  • Rodgers under 50% completion (yikes!).
  • Offense came out flat for awhile after halftime.


Crosby is making me a little bit uneasy with his misses this year. Also, it's hard to be down on Cobb after the positive things he did but 3 catches on 9 targets?


To be fair to Aaron Rodgers, once again, a lot of drops. The INT he threw was a pretty good pass to Cobb that Cobb either bobbled or had stripped from him (hard to tell from the angles). That pass was Cobb's fault, not Aaron's.

I kind of felt that the colder weather was somewhat a part of the problem. I blame that on Mike McCarthy. I have said it many times in the past that they practice too much inside. One day a week is enough. Get outside on the field turf and get use to the weather. Having the doors to the building open or sticking the footballs into the freezer is apparently not enough.

It almost seem to me that AZ stopped themselves with poor passing and WR drops as much the GB defense did in covering them.

GB won by 14 but I can easily see AZ getting 2 TDs if they executed better. And of course I know that GB did run the clock out at the end of the game.

True, maybe I should rephrase my comments as general positives and negatives for the team. Not necessarily assigning blame to Rodgers for the completion %, just bringing it up to show that something was a bit off in the passing game (be it Rodgers accuracy, receivers not making catches they should, or a combination of both).

If Aaron Rodgers tried walking on water and failed, the excuse would be it wasn't salt water so it doesn't count, lol.

I am going to this game on Sunday. Going to have a good time.


PC,
I saw you on the diamondvision at the game modeling your bikini top. I don't know if it made it to the tv screen as well. You got quite a loud cheer from the guys. :-"

You give the bikini girls a run for their money.

I tried to find a photo of it on the net this morning but couldn't locate it.

The point has been raised before, but a clear negative that I saw was that they were 0-3 on 3rd and 1. I really don't know why they struggle so badly in this scenario?

As an add-on Skelton was really good. The Card receivers really helped the Pack. Lots of dropped passes at key times.

Green ran it twice on 3rd and 1, that accounts for 2 of them. On the other one we threw it.

GIVE ME STARKS

Green converted 1 3rd and 1, and was stopped on 1. Thing is, on both of them, there were unblocked men in the hole. The one he was stopped, had 2 of them. Starks wasn't going to do any better in those plays.

When Starks has impact, mostly because of his running style, is after he has a head of steam. Throw him in a third and short with a guy sitting in the hole with his upright style.. dude gets his marbles rocked.

I said in last week and the week before that.. Green is a better runner than Starks.. what Starks brings is the wood when he gets a crease. Green still is trying to dance instead of just exploding in the crease.

Zero2Cool (11m) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (1h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (1h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (1h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (2h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (2h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (3h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (4h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (4h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (4h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (4h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (4h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (4h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (4h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (4h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (7h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (10h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (15h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19h) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19h) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19h) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (23h) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
uffda udfa (23h) : I'd rather sit them than play them too compromised.
uffda udfa (23h) : Yeah, Z. More pressure cooker talk and smoked turkeys.
Zero2Cool (23h) : If this were a regular-season game, Nelson, Adams and Allison probably would not play, MM says.
Smokey (19-Jan) : Mason Crosby is ill, hope it's not the Flu.
Smokey (19-Jan) : Great, can we move past that story and get back to the Atlanta game ?
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Packers exec Eliot Wolf has withdrawn his name for 49ers' GM job, as @TomPelissero reported. He didn't feel it was the right time.
TheKanataThrilla (19-Jan) : We'll just have to score TDs then.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : That's what we know.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Crosby, Mason K Illness
Smokey (19-Jan) : Is He ill or not ?
Smokey (19-Jan) : Raiderpride asked, "Anyone know what Crosby's illness is?"
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Davante Adams expected to play- KFFL
Porforis (19-Jan) : Alright, my opinion on Jordy has changed. If he's medically cleared to play, play him.
