That's the way to kick the season off right.

Positives:

- Pass rush showed up! Loaved our hunger for attacking the QB tonight. Loved the hits Kamp/KGB/Hawk got on Travaris.

- Rodgers was solid. He came out and had a good outing. He will hopefully learn from this and continue to improve. Loved the accuracy.

- ST are looking like a solid group early. Terrific job. Finally Blackmon has a chance to show what he can do, and let's hope injuries don't hurt him again.


Few complaints though:

- Too many penalties. McCarthy will be mad, he'll make it better by the Lions game.

- Running game needs to be more consistent. Loads better than at this point last year, but it still has to get better.

- Too conservative at the end. Go for a first down, don't run three straight times and hope the Vikes can't do much with the little time left on the field. That's not the McCarthy I know.

The fact that we won with 239283 penalties speaks VOLUMES about this team.

It says a lot about COMPOSURE, about coming back after these bad plays.

It says a lot about TALENT, about being able to come back in the first place.

A lot of teams, after the driver TD that got called back, might have crumbled. Not this team. Not the Green Bay Packers.

And I think it might be wise to review Bigby's place on the hands team. I can't believe the ball went through his hands. That's inexcusable. Thankfully it went out of bounds.

Waaaaaayh too much yellow on the field, and if affected both teams. As poorly as Jackson played, the score should have been much worse.

Congrats GB on the well deserved week 1 win.

A very frustrating game to say the least.

In my opinion, we pretty much dominating the game, yet we allowed them to stay in the game until the end. Reminds me a lot of the first game of last year. Sloppy game, great help from our special teams.

It's comforting to know that we are only going to improve. As sloppy as we looked, we still looked pretty damn good.

Jackson looked pretty slow, indecisive, timid, and week. Grant is obviously way better. I could tell he was getting winded easily tonight. We need to get him in shape.

Bring on the Lions!!

Yes, excellent game except for the penalties. Better than expected showing for Aaron. We should all sleep well tonight.

Collins had a couple of hard hits. Loved seeing that.

About time he progress and become apt at making game changing plays, let's hope this is the beginning of a new Collins.

Thought we came out flat but quickly turned it on after the long completion to Jennings.

I thought we were too conservative at times. Didn't like not going for the TD at the end of the first half.

Frost looked good. Consistent.

Blackmon was HUGE!

Zero2Cool (now) : 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 (3m) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (22m) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (24m) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (26m) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (35m) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (36m) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (3h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (6h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (15h) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (15h) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (15h) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19h) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
uffda udfa (19h) : I'd rather sit them than play them too compromised.
uffda udfa (19h) : Yeah, Z. More pressure cooker talk and smoked turkeys.
Zero2Cool (19h) : If this were a regular-season game, Nelson, Adams and Allison probably would not play, MM says.
Smokey (20h) : Mason Crosby is ill, hope it's not the Flu.
Smokey (20h) : Great, can we move past that story and get back to the Atlanta game ?
Zero2Cool (20h) : 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 (22h) : We'll just have to score TDs then.
Zero2Cool (22h) : That's what we know.
Zero2Cool (22h) : Crosby, Mason K Illness
Smokey (22h) : Is He ill or not ?
Smokey (22h) : Raiderpride asked, "Anyone know what Crosby's illness is?"
Zero2Cool (22h) : Davante Adams expected to play- KFFL
Porforis (23h) : Alright, my opinion on Jordy has changed. If he's medically cleared to play, play him.
hardrocker950 (19-Jan) : By Sunday we won't have any WRs
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Geronimo hamstring, Janis quad. BEAUTIFUL.
Smokey (19-Jan) : Mason Crosby, is his health OK ?
Smokey (19-Jan) : Hello
FLORIDA PACKER88 (19-Jan) : Davis, G-Mo, and Janis will need to step up, but all three did score last time we played ATL!
FLORIDA PACKER88 (19-Jan) : Does Janis become a playoff hero second year in a row? Looks we're gonna have to find out either way regardless. Thank God for a healthy Cob
Smokey (19-Jan) : Is Mason Crosby's health OK ?
Smokey (19-Jan) : What's in your Coffee ?
