Packers Offense Makes Indirect Strides

It has been said "You learn more from your failures than successes." This is true. While I would in no way characterize the Packers offensive performance as a "failure" the fact remains that a lot of players put down film that they can learn from. It started with the first play from scrimmage, a brilliantly conceived and perfectly executed play-action pass that hit Ty Montgomery in the hands down the right sideline in what would have been at the very least a big gain...had he caught the ball. I said before this game that I would be disappointed if the…

R&R: Packers/Niners

Rants/Raves I will mix the R&R up this time since I don't have a lot to rant about~ Don't forget to fill the comments for this game with a #GoPackGo The Packers wanted to start fast so through the first quarter of the season they're now 4-0 "check". The Packers wanted to beat Seattle "check". They wanted to play better special teams "check". And the final chip to get off their shoulders was beating the 49ers which they did yesterday with a 17-3 victory "check". (more…)

Hot Read: Defense Gets Mean And Not Just Against Kaepernick

A lot will be written this morning about the Packers' defense, and rightly so. With the offense out of sync, the Packers' defensive performance in this game was quite possibly the difference between a win and a loss. A lot will be written about the six sacks of Colin Kaepernick and rightly so. With six against Kaepernick, the Packers defense has accumulated 13 sacks over the last two games. But I am excited about another trend that the Packers' defense continued. (more…)

Week 4 Takeaways

It wasn’t the type of win that Mike McCarthy expected over his former team – but the Packers head coach should be generally pleased with the defensive-led 17-3 win over the Niners in Week 4. A healthy front seven and opportunistic secondary allowed the defense to build off of its past two performances and hold San Francisco to three total points. Despite the all-around great performance by the defense, it should be noted that Colin Kaepernick had his way on the ground during the first half, carrying the ball ten times for 57 yards in total and forcing a number of…

Week 3 Takeaways

A Week 3 win over the Chiefs on Monday Night helped end the Packers’ recent trend of slow starts in the month of September. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers looked dominant on both sides of the ball in their 38-28 victory, a score that was not the slightest bit indicative of Green Bay’s dominance for three quarters of the game. On offense, Rodgers received just enough protection to hook up with James Jones and Randall Cobb for a combined 230 yards and four touchdowns. In-game injuries to Davante Adams and Andrew Quarless provided opportunities for young receivers Ty Montgomery and…
