Can we stop the rot and put the final nail into the Lions' infamous coffin?

What's with Jennings dropping balls

Finley finally showing his talent. Next year he's going to be a nice weapon for us. He's screwed up a lot this year, but with an offseason to work on it, he'll be a nice addition to our offense.

He is just plain garbage. I would like to know how he offers us depth when he never plays on defense?

I know our line is all shuffled around, but the pass protection is embarrassing.

Rodgers went over 300 yards passing, 3 TDs, 1 INT, 21/31 with 7 of the 10 incompletions being drops
Grant and Wynn each went over 100 yards rushing
Jennings and Driver each went over 10 yards receiving

Good day offensively minus all the fumbles.

Thats quite an accomplishment Id hope so! :D

Jarret Bush blows... Ive said it every single week. I doubt the Lions would even want him but somehow he is still on our team.

Glad Driver got his yardage to go over 1000, I was hoping he would! Same with Rodgers over 4000 in his first year starting. Didnt they say Kurt Warner was the only other player to do that in their first year starting?

Rodgers didnt throw an Int

Oh he can, and he does. In practice.
In games, different story. Frustrating because the dude is a helluvan athlete. He just doesn't play well. He better be upgraded next year. I thought they tried to upgrade him with Pat Lee.

A couple (somewhat) obscure records:
The Packers set a league record with two receivers -- Donald Driver (111) and Greg Jennings (101) -- and two rushers, Ryan Grant (106) and DeShawn Wynn (106), to all go over 100 yards. According to Elias Sports Bureau, it is the first time that has happened.

Driver became the first Packers player to have six 1,000-yard receiving seasons.

Al Harris played very poorly today....time for him to move on

they upgraded simply by not allowing Jarret Bush to step on the field other than special teams....

Good game yesterday, nice to finally go to a game where the Packers win.

Was the Grant fumble a fumble or not? I had a pretty good view of it from where I was sitting and my first impression was that his head hit before it came out.

One game doesn't make for a time to move a veteran. TT doesn't like veteran players, but it sure would have been nice to have had Tracy White on special teams and KGB in the locker room. Al Harris had a very solid season, but he is over-matched against Calvin Johnson. That being said, there's a lot of CBs who can't handle CJ!!! Maybe Malcolm Jenkins can come in and he and Tramon Williams can apply pressure to take time away from Harris or induce Woodson to move to safety, where I think he and Collins would be AMAZING together!

It's not just this past game, but since last season Harris' play has been on the decline. Even John Standeford was able to beat Al.

No, absolutely would hate that. Woodson will be a great safety when the time comes, but that is not now. He was a top 3 corner this season, moving him to safety full time would be a waste.

I agree with not moving Harris though. Since he came back from the injury he was a shut down corner again until the Saints game. That and the Lions game he got beat on, but overall he's been good this year. Al Harris is one of the most scrutinized players on this forum, so it's natural for people to overeact on him. Yes, he's not what he was in 2006, but he's still better than a lot of corners out there. If we could get a high third or better maybe, maybe, it'd be something to consider but otherwise why bother? There's no reason to move him. Tramon Williams was quite impressive in the time he played, but there's no hurry to make him a full time starter. Right now we have one of the best starting corner duos and a top nickelback. That's something that not a lot of teams can say, but is almost becoming necessary because of today's passing attacks. Why mess that up. Worst case scenario we start Williams and bring Harris in on nickel situations. I don't see any benefit to getting rid of Al Harris.

Woodson is still one of the best CB's in the game and he has God-given athletic ability for it.

Plus he's not big/muscle enough to last long at safety. Look at how often Nick Collins, Aaron Rouse, and Atari Bigby get hurt back there and those guys have a lot more muscle than Woodson does. You guys forget how often Woodson was hurt in Oakland?
Safety is a physical postion a lot more than CB is. Even the bodybuilders Brian Dawkins and Adrian Wilson get hurt a lot.
