Well. We had opportunities to win this one. We dropped interceptions, and our offense failed to convert when our D held. They did what they needed to do, to not hurt themselves, and they did what they needed to do, to win. Thats pretty much all it comes down to.

Our defense was spent in overtime, with no break between two series. The teams were pretty evenly matched, obviously. We also lost the turnover battle. Ah well.

The Pack played a whale of a tough game!

We could have won the turn over battle if we would have held onto a couple of those balls that were right in our gut. It makes the loss...just worse.

totally disagree. Offense left too many points on the field and the D didn't come up with the INT when we needed it. That was the difference. We outplayed them for the entire second half, but didn't take advantage. Should have won.

In a way thats kinda what I was getting at in my original post...Just a little different. If we would have gotten the INT's we would have had more oppurtunities to score.

That hurt. Way to go Detroit. Now we all get to listen to Vikesrule and Formo for a week. I can hardly wait.

Rodgers had some bone head plays as did Brady P..

The D stepped up to take charge but just couldnt muster enuff at the end..

Ryan finally showed he still has it..

wish the refs would have called the p/i call on that Jennings drop..

Driver had a good game but had a few drops as well.

Finley really needs to catch the ball better..that was suppose to be his specialty coming out of college..He had 2 perfectly thrown to him ( one 4 a TD ) and he can't make the grab

You pretty much just said what he said. So in fact, you totally agree.

Well, at least AR's stats look good. That's what is most important.

That game started out ugly. We hung. I'm not mad, but it sure would have been nice to pull it out of our asses, but it would have been largely that. Friggin' missed opportunities galore in that one.

Poppinga did commit the personal foul, but that other guy had his hands up in Poppinga's facemask for the whole play and the refs ignored it, so I can see why Poppinga was so mad.

I agree that Ryan Grant looked good. He has his burst back and he lowered his shoulder into some defenders to pick up extra yards.

Driver was very good. The one drop I think was caused by a weird sun angle, but yes, he still had at least one bad drop.

The problem with Finley on those two plays was that he just wasn't open. Both of them would have been very difficult to catch. He needs to get open so he won't be forced to make circus catches. At least he eventually got his first NFL reception.

Well then, the thread is mis-titled, because I didn't come away thinking they're better than us.

Finley needs to get TWO hands up to catch a ball. I don't understand why he's swatting at it.

I think The Packers and The Titans are pretty even.

The difference is that The Titans have had it together this year and The Packers are still trying to get everything to Gel. :)

It's not as though the entire game came down to one series, so don't get the wrong idea -- but I disagreed with the playcalling on the last part of our final offensive series. We were in Tennessee territory and on 1st and 2nd down we took some 5-step drop plays and tried to force it downfield. If we take a little bit of the clock with us there, and set up for a more manageable 3rd down, then maybe we have a chance to kick the field goal rather than punt. From that point on it was all Tennesse (notwithstanding the Bironas miss at the end of regulation).

I thought the Packers showed up today. It didn't always look pretty on offense, but that's going to happen against a top defense. Outside of a few big plays, the defense played great. It's a shame Tennessee won it -- it almost felt like they stole it from us. Meh. The Packers are still in the thick of things. They just have to do their job against the division teams. I'm going to the game next week, and I'm their good luck charm at the dome (2-0 the last two years :))
