'Twas a beautiful pass. And no, it wasn't a gamble. Looked like Rodgers had a split second decision that Jennings was farther along than the defender would have liked and Aaron made that decision, and it was the right one.

I agree Zombie. Looking at the reply, he saw that Jennings had the D lulled into a false sense of security, and the throw was there.
Those silly defenders........don't they KNOW that your not supposed to look directly into Greg Jenning's face???? :thumbright:
Since69.....i agree with that too. I would have liked to see Grant in there to get at least a few touches. Just to get used to the hits again.
(And thanks gotarace for the plus 1!)

That's the thing. It wasn't a risky throw at all. Jennings was in a weird spot where if the ball was in the right spot, there's no way the two defenders could touch him. After catching the ball, he could have moonwalked into the end zone if he wanted to.

Sweet play, and good to see. But I wish McCarthy would have let the starters play one more series. I wanted to get a look at Grant...

Yes it was a sweeeet play, i also would have liked to see more out of Grant and outher starters. :whipitgood:

Thats what i saw too. Now, had the ball been a half second late, it could have been picked off. But Rodgers took advantage of what he saw, and made a great play. It's all timing, and taking advantage of it at that split second you see it. Rodgers showed me he's ready for the season to start.....and that excites me!

Well 2 things impressed me the most about that play:
1) the pass itself was sweet,
2) more importantly, Aaron CAN make split second decisions. I like the mental aggression on his part, knowing it's an opportunity and following through.

Yup! Early in the preseason, at least to me, it looked like Rodgers wasn't making the split second decisions. But he looks more and more prepared each week. I think the "butterflies" are going away for him, and he will make this HIS team. I can't WAIT for September 8th!!!

More like NIGHTMARES when they know that they have to somehow slow these WR's down.
