Yup, and if we added runs, we wouldn't have scored 560 points. Not the O's fault that the D couldn't get sacks or tackle people.

Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy realize this. That's why we went D in the draft and we didn't waste any picks on the running game.


I would say the drops hurt us more than the D.

That D completely relied on takeaways. Against the Giants, we got one INT and no forced fumbles and promptly lost, allowing 37 points.

How is it the O's fault when the D allows 37 points?

I want to see every play a running play ...

... but only if our RB is Kate Becksindale and she's wearing the shorts from that picture.

I think it matters little who the running back is as long as Aaron Rodgers is the quarterback ... he'll get 4 yards more a carry on average.

But if it's Kate, who cares about what Aaron Rodgers does or does not do?

I'm with Wade. Who cares if we run the ball... or, about football for that matter...?

Because the O had 8 dropped passes and turned the ball over 4 times. Those stopped drives and gave the Giants a short field. Granted our D was weak, but with the O's performance(or lack there of) I'm surprised the D kept us in it til the 4th quarter.

Yeah imagine how good rodgers would have it when defenses are selling out to stop a consistent ground attack on 3rd and short situations. I find a lot of it is line play, we need to push the pile.


True, and being able to use up the clock instead of fast passing drives takes the ball away from the other team's offense.

Yeah, we already discussed this though. I'm in agreement about the drops. Had the D done their job, we would have won the game. Had our receivers caught Aaron's passes, we would have won the game.

The Giants were the hungrier team. I think we were looking past them.

That said, I'm thinking in the grand scheme of things. #1 O. #19 D. Doesn't take a genius to figure out which one needs the most improvement.

As for Wade, we're usually in agreement about babes. However, Ms. Kate doesn't do it for me as much as some of the others he has the hots for.
