It was a disappointing loss, but there were a few bright spots:

Cullen Jenkins--Got a sack, shared another sack with Kampman, forced Romo into an intentional grounding penalty, and got pressure on several other plays as well. Tackled an RB for a five-yard loss. Last year he was playing hurt, and now we're seeing what he can do when he's healthy.

Brandon Jackson--Only had a few carries, but he made the most of them. He looked more decisive on his runs and was fighting for every yard.

Jordy Nelson--Okay, all of his catches were against a prevent defense, but this had to be a confidence-builder for him. Rodgers was looking for him a lot, and he made an acrobatic sideline catch early in the game, which unfortunately was called back because of a penalty.

Tramon Williams--Did a nice job filling in for Al Harris. He made a great breakup downfield on one play. He did give up the TD by Austin in the fourth quarter (along with Rouse), but the coverage was good. It was just a great play by Romo, buying time and making a perfect throw. Sometimes that happens. What I like about Tramon Williams is that he has good ball skills. He gets his head around and plays the ball.

I think Greg Jennings did fairly well.

Eight catches for 115 yards. Nothing wrong with that. It goes to show how high my standards are for him now, that I did not think that worth mentioning. I guess I was hoping for a huge play from him, which never came. The Cowboys did a good job of containing him.

Woodson did well. Yeah he had a little help but they contained Terrible Owens.

I thought Hawk played pretty well too. He seemed to be the only one able to get Barber down on the initial contact.

How could I have forgotten to mention Woodson? He did a nice job in coverage. Too bad he missed that open-field tackle on Felix Jones.

I agree that Hawk looked pretty good as well.

Woodson, Collins, Kampman, Jenkins, Jennings.

Hawk was not as dominant as he has been. Nelson I thought jumped a little early or should not have jumped at all for a couple passes... His rookie inexperience showed there.

James Jones was unseen, and whoever it was that was supposed to be on that no name receiver who torched the Pack I thought was somewhat inept.

This game I actually missed Brett Favre. Though I am still a huge fan of his and cheer for him whenever he plays, he is no longer a Packer and so I watch ARod go through his growing pains.

I do think he has potential but he did not play well in this game.

Also, a couple of missed tackles by Woodson resulted in a big play or two so though he did a good job on TO but, it did result in 2 scores.

Packers need to revamp the Oline and put in more plays that are going to utilize ARod's mobility.

I think it was Tramon Williams. I'm still bothered by that play. I think if we had Al Harris in there, it wouldn't have happened.

Woodson, Jennings and Jenkins stood out to me. Those guys had nothing to be ashamed of.
