wasn't pretty..especially the FG's. Need to get healthy soon. Offense was poor but the defense was hot and cold. Mostly hot besides some Calvin plays.

5 Sacks with no Clay is pretty impressive though


We've got some young players who are stars in the making.

Hawyard, Moses, McMillian among them.

It's going to be yet another dog-fight that is going to scare the living shit out of us and collectively piss us all off as it goes on. This game will cause the large percentage of us to drink way more heavily than we had initially planned- we will all blame it (the too much drinking) on how the game progressed- We (the pack) will somehow win it or lose it in some bull-shit semi-bizarre fashion, unless it goes our way, in which case, it was our inherent superiority as an organization, fanbase, and football team all along (that we already knew about) that shined through.

This is my best prediction.

In other words, a typical Green Bay Packer game.

We had it all along. Laugh

Offense has to get consistent and be able to finish.

Frankly, I'm surprised they are not highlighting Finley. Say what you want about his antics and personality, but Finley is a walking mismatch. Especially against a cover-2 zone type Defense of the Lions? If nothing else, Finley should have been able to own the middle today.

I get that McCarthy does not want to make the offense revolve around Finley. He shouldn't. But at least make more of an effort to get him in situations where Rodgers is looking for him. The 40 yard catch and run was a thing of beauty. I seriously hope McCarthy looks to work Finley into the game plan more. Finley is too talented and dangerous a weapon to be incidentally featured to other players.

First I don't think Finley is a head case in the eyes of the packers. second of all I totally I agree. They need to get Finley exposing the middle of the areas in soft spots in the cover 2. Utilize him in more of a short game, simple catches. Finley drops balls that are usually forced between defenders or panic throws inches off the ground.

Example is 3rd and short everyone is running verticals too much. If they are guarding that then just have finley running some short easy throws. When Rodgers usually throws to him it's usually when it's in panic time.He's a big dude so he can catch the ball and get some YAC and fall forward for 7-8 yards even on short 5 yard slants and crosses

Considering our #1 and #2 defenders were out, our #2 CB was out, our #1 WR was out, our #1 RB is on IR, and half our OL is limping, we played a heck of a game.

My thoughts - in the offseason, Uncle Ted Thompson is gonna have to do something about the OL. I'm tired of seeing Aaron Rodgers having to break tackles to get the ball off. He needs better protection.

Fix this, and we have an absolutely sick team. Our D is "ahead of schedule." I thought it would take 2 years to fix but Hayward is stepping up to the point where we might have a real D when CM3 comes back.

Great job team. =d>

This is a team that may be better than last year's team, despite all the injuries. We got fight.

We also have a better rotations between the tackles on the defensive side of the ball. And we have better overall balance, much of that is contributed to running the ball consistently on offense that trickles down to the rest of the team.

There are some obvious flaws, but I find this win very encouraging. The Packers are wining despite the fact that Aaron Rodgers isn't playing up to his standards. He missed throws the last three weeks and the Packers just keep winning. Imagine what will happen when he finds his rhythm, which I believe, will happen sooner than later.

Next week is obviously a major test, but I believe this team is heading in the right direction. This reminds me of 2010 when the Packers went to Atlanta for a major November showdown. Getting healthy will also give an added boost to the defense (Clay Matthews & Charles Woodson) and passing game (Greg Jennings).
