timeAs expected, Aaron Rodgers bested JJ Watt and DeMarco Murray to win the AP Most Valuable Player award. Rodgers posted a 12-4 record with a Green Bay Packers team that seemed to have the Seattle Seahawks up against the wall until four minutes left in the game. 

Rodgers is a coach on the field and plays the game faster than any other quarterback in the league, the fact that he is not in this year’s Super Bowl is a true travesty to the league in general. Rodgers told Packernation to “RELAX” after a loss to the Lions…put down the Cowboys with a calf injury in the divisional round…and did almost enough to go to another Super Bowl. The fact that he played SO well injured is a testament to his commitment and a nod to his “Ironman” status.

Most Dangerous Substance on Earth - Packer Offense

Rodgers would have broken more records, had not his team had such a lead at Lambeau that he had IMG_0989.JPGto watch games from the sidelines. This is “The MAN” of the NFL…what would our team be without him. And how hopeful is Packernation that next year will be a success with Aaron Rodgers at the helm once again!

Go Pack!

    I agree about Starks playing well. He had 2 big plays, both of which he was hit in the backfield, broke tackles, and ran away from where the play was designed to go. Lacy doesn’t make those plays. I’m glad we didn’t try to force more run plays, as it obviously wasn’t working.

    We shouldn’t read more into this than was there. SD used a perfect game plan on both sides of the ball. They still couldn’t put enough points on the board, and that’s due to our D playing well in the red zone and preventing big plays, and our offense doing barely enough.

    Rivers (who’s one of the best in the game when he’s hot), was on fire. He threw extremely accurate passes all game long against perfect coverage. Not many NFL QBs throughout history have been able to maintain that kind of accuracy for an entire game. He identified pre-snap, and took advantage of their mismatches consistently. He earned his 500+ passing yards. And every time he was slightly off target or hesitated, our D made plays on the ball and/or receivers. He minimized our pass rush and protected his extremely banged up O-line with quick timing routes. But we still left at least 2 turnovers on the field (by Shields) – great CBs don’t leave those plays on the field.

    On D their pass rushers stayed in their lanes, which prevented Rodgers from leaving the pocket. They exposed our O-line, which Rodgers makes look better than they really are at pass protection. We have 2 great OGs, the rest of the O-line is mediocre.

    Rodgers could learn a thing or 2 from Rivers. Trust the receivers that coaches put on the field to make plays, and get the ball to the best match up. Too often Rodgers ignores receivers who have a step on their defender in timing routes, which leads to a sack or throwing the ball away when he can’t extend plays with his feet. We had receivers running with a step or more of separation on almost every play, and he ignored them. Separation is not the problem, trust in his receivers and his accuracy is the problem.

    For me the best news is that once again, these are the types of games we’ve always lost in the past as our D has worn down with lopsided times of possession and our offense plays down to opponents. But the D played well for this entire game, and the offense found another gear when the game was tied. This is how championship teams win, and I’m more confident about our post season success with every one of these “ugly” wins. Go Pack go! 🙂

    #1 GET HEALTHY EVERYONE! Going to need it! I think one of my favorite moments wasn’t a play, but hearing Rivers screaming “MONSTER 52…. MONSTER 52” And the announcers had fun with that one too. Your reputation precedes you Clay! Unfortunately I had to watch the majority of the game on my computer. Felt like one of the VERY few in the nation that had to do that. But, that’s ok, I find a way to watch EVERY game from here in W.Va. GO PACK GO!!!
