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.

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. Whistle

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.

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.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.
