In the most important game of the preseason, the scoreboard indicated a job well done by Mike McCarthy’s crew. Despite lining up against one of the league least-talented clubs, the Packers flashed several undeniable positives, including the mere existence of a pass rush. And still, some sloppiness was present in penalties, dropped passes and a muffed punt. The Packers didn’t exactly escape the injury bug, with Brad Jones, B.J. Raji and Jamari Lattimore leaving the game early. On defense, Davon House continued to show why the coaching staff has been so keen to insert him in a variety of packages.…

After watching the Browns v. Redskins game last night, I found myself reflecting on our quarterback situation as Packers fans. The Browns fielded two quarterbacks, none of which were...well...good. Brian Hoyer went 2-6 for 16 yards and Johnny "football" was 7-16 for 65 yards, one touchdown and one middle finger to the Redskins fans caught on video. Classy...very classy.
