Way to go BloodBrother, I am so proud of you.

Seriously tho.
Want to see Mathews unleashed and Walden to play better. Randall Cobb should touch the ball on offense, just so i can get horny.
If we can slow down AP, make Ponder throw it, and do on O what we did last time, it wont even be close.

30-16 Packers win.

Brilliant stuff bloodbrother!! ;)

How about a breakthrough game for the defense? Wait no i've been saying that since week one...

Hey, the D played well against ATL!

Seriously though, they need to do a much better job against AP than they did last time they faced. If he gets going it just will make it easier for the rook. I think the D is gonna come through today and play a good game....I hope

Vikes are getting Winfield back, that should help them a bit. Pack will likely need to give Newhouse some help against Allen. I don't want to see him getting any hits on Rodgers, period

I'll go with a 34-14 win for the Pack

This is the tough stretch they are entering where they play 3 games in 10 days.

Newhouse will hopefully play better vs Allen having seen him once and being at home.

No more cute stuff Capers. I don't want to see Matthews dropping off in coverage on 3rd and long. I want to see the Predator.

Also here's a novel idea...whenever they do blitz, how about somebody actually getting through and getting to the QB. That'd be great

Yes, obviously...and I think it's having a domino effect on the entire D. Pickett and Green both offer zeeeero when it comes to pass rush. B.J. Raji has pass rush skills but without anybody else on the line to help it has hurt his play/chances. Wynn is really the only guy who CAN rush but he obviously he isn't consistent at it and is really more of a back-up.

I am hoping that Neal doesn't suffer a "setback" and that the Pack take it easy with him. They don't really need him right now, but they'll need him come playoff time. Don't want them to rush him back on the field, he's missed pretty much all of training camp plus the entire season up to this point. Let him get his conditioning back for however many weeks, then probably give him limited snaps in games. Increase that when the playoffs start

Big game here, we need to win in order to stay atop the NFC. Plus with a short week followed by an even shorter week its important to start off good here tonight.

Not sure what it is. Maybe it is perception but I haven't noticed as many of those "crossdog" blitzes up the middle that seemed to be so effective last year.

hahaha had a little chuckle to myself after reading that one ;)

on a serious note though. people need to stop blaming Capers for the bad defensive play! he can only tell the guys what to do and if they dont do it properly then hes got a problem. Capers is an experienced coach so i think he knows how to run a defense

EDIT: Forget Neal aka Justin Harrell 2.0

Too early to call Neal a Justin Harrell clone, IMO. He's practicing and is on the right track. Let's hope for the best.

Doubt he plays much, tbh

TimmG6376

No, at best he might get a couple chances to rush in obvious passing situations. But a good sign nonetheless. Shows that he is starting to earn coaches trust.

Yeah I don't get why people say that about him. With Harrell he didn't seem like he cared if he played or not, Neal at least wants to play. You can tell he's hungry and its killing him not to be out on that field. Narrow-minded comments IMO.

Interesting. Cobb is one of the captains tonight (Special Teams). I'd say that's pretty impressive for a rookie.

Damn! Clay had him in the crosshairs.

I know Aaron Rodger is a beast but at least run the ball a little in the redzone. Man that sack killed us there, cost us 4 points.

This is exactally why we need to get away from a zone blocking system. Poor pass protection and can't run the ball. 6 carries for 9 yards by our RBs is not going to cut it. At some point you just need to lineup and power your way in the middle of the line.

BloodBrother
11-14-2011, 09:03 PM
At the very least he needs to chuck that out of bounds. Can't take the sack there...

good half, especially by the D!...but the OL seems to be regressing the last few weeks. They STUNK against SD and are not playing well so far tonight. Can't get anything going on offense much when they aren't giving Rodgers enough time

for christs sake, can they f*cking PICK UP Jared Allen already...

not to mention they still are splitting carries too much with Grant/Starks. It's pretty obvious that Starks is a better option now. I like Grant, great guy and great player here, but come on already

Dammitt Cobb, lets the Vikings right back into this game. Call fair catch or something, inexusable.

Okay, okay I forgive you! Shoving Allen on his ass then hurdling him there was awesome!

Love the way the defense has progressed tonight. Still work to do (wrap up tackling, more stout up front) but its played much better than the first half of the season.

Really suprised at how poorly the offensive line has played though. Particulary Sitton. He's getting pushed around alot this year. Newhouse is also showing that he's a work in progress. Kind of a bend don't break guy which is a far cry from Clifton.

Time to get Rodgers out of there?

Have to think so, get Flynn some action. Hell I'd put alot of the backups in like Sherrod, So'oto, Pat Lee, ect.

This would've been a great game for Davon House to be active too. Disapointed that he hasn't seen any action this season.

You know I love Cobb but seriously fair catch the ***** ball. The game is under control and risking unnecessary turnover/injury is just stupid.

BloodBrother

Besides the Cobb fumble....couldn't have asked for a better game. OL has struggled the last few games now, which has to be fixed. HATE seeing Rodgers take all those hits

with that said, this was a great game. They are starting a tough 3 games in 10 days stretch and they were able to rest their starters with 10 minutes left to go in the 4th. That's pretty big

Very encouraging game by the D. They were FINALLY getting consistent pressure and looking like last year's D. The talent has always been there...I hope this is a sign of things to come from them.

OL needs to pick it up, though. They seem to be regressing a bit. Struggled against SD and were subpar tonight. I do NOT want to see Rodgers take so many damn hits. The season lives and dies with his right arm...they need to f*cking do a better job, period. They are better than this and they know it


Woodson was a beast tonight. Nearly had 2 INT and should have had that last one for a pick 6(probably thinking TD there and dropped it)

fun, fun game tonight. Everything pretty much went right and blowing out a division rival NEVER gets old

11-14-2011, 10:48 PM
See what happens when we move Clay around too, he gets pressure from all over the field and it opened things up for Bishop and Walden. Very happy to see him roaming the field tonight.

On another note, where has B.J. Raji been this year? Are his high snap counts tiring him out? Him and Pickett have been MIA this year. Nice to see C.J. Wilson getting some pressure though. Kind of suprised that he didn't progress from last year yet.

BloodBrother
11-14-2011, 10:58 PM
Could be Raji slowing down...also could be that he isn't getting much help on the line this year

Things for the Pack to work on in practice this week...have Cobb field more punts. 2 fumbles on the year is inexcusable. He is easily the teams best returner but if he keeps coughing it up they'll pull him from that role. Come on, rook!

Lang, Wells, Sitton are all better than what they showed tonight. Hope they are working hard this week

on the plus side, lets give it up to Bulaga. He was awesome tonight and has been all year. Easily looks like we got out RT of the future

Just another thing here, Desmond Bishop is averaging nearly 10 tackles a game and is tied with Clay for the team lead in sacks.

Morgan Burnett is also 2nd on the team in tackles, on pace for over 100 this season.

Over the last 16 games (including playoffs), Jordy Nelson has 64 catches for 1124 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Well that was easy! I didnt watch the game but from the sounds of it this was a pretty faultless day where the offense and defense both showed up. Maybe a turning point for the defense? Especially holding AP to 51 yards! I was shocked when i saw that.

Maybe a turning point, but let's remember that outside of AP that offense doesn't have a whole lot going on. And while Allen is playing possessed and the linebackers are solid their secondary is putrid. The Pack did what they are supposed to do against inferior teams.

I liked the energy in this game though. Seemed like there was more of a killer instinct going on. Too often it seems they get a lead and coast to a victory. Last night they kept the foot on the gas until the end.

I was not too happy with the performance of the left side of our offensive line...Newhouse has been servicable as the starter at left tackle but I think this Sunday would be a good time to see what we have in Sherrod at this point.

I heard this today:
Rodgers last 20 games: 50 TDs, I think 7 or 8 Ints.

That's not bad.
