Week 17 Takeaways

  3 years ago     55 Views     Leave your thoughts  

Since Mike McCarthy took over as head coach in Green Bay, the games between the Packers and Bears have exhibited an element of weirdness; Sunday’s win-and-in game at Soldier Field was no different. Aaron Rodgers was less-than-spectacular in his first game back since early November but a late touchdown throw to Randall Cobb sealed the deal for Green Bay and stamped their ticket to the playoffs. The Packers have looked far from a playoff team of late but could ride momentum into their playoff game versus the Forty-Niners, who have beaten Green Bay in their last three meetings. Positives Jordy…

Before I get too far into this post, I have to give credit where credit is due. Matt Flynn stepped into a very difficult situation and has performed well enough to have the Packers in position where they can make the playoffs with a final win against their arch rivals. That said, here are three things Matt did wrong that we probably won't see with Aaron at the helm. (more…)

One must credit the Matt Flynn-led Packers for the fight they put forth in snowy conditions against a desperate Steelers team in Week 16. Mike McCarthy’s play calling and game plan in general set the team up for victory; but an injury to Clay Matthews and miscue-turned-pick-six left the Packers with a seventh loss on the season.

Positives Micah Hyde Just as fans had begun to write off Hyde as a kick returner, the rookie defensive back turned his…

The Packers team that trailed the Cowboys by three scores at halftime in Week 15 were not the slightest bit resembling of the 2010 Super Bowl squad that last took the field at AT&T Stadium in Dallas. However, Mike McCarthy’s Packers exhibited the same ‘can-do’ mentally in the second half of the game, leading to a one-point win over Dallas and keeping playoff hopes alive. Next week’s meeting with the Steelers suddenly becomes relevant and could be an early Christmas present to Packers fans if Aaron Rodgers is able to start. Positives Wide Receivers The receivers did just about all…

Quickslant: Dec. 13, 2013 – It’s Friday the Thirteenth

So it's Friday the thirteenth and as you all know...no Rodgers for the game against the Cowboys. The gameplan will proceed with Matt Flynn. 1. We have to run the ball. We know defenses are going to dare us to pass and early on, a few slants and short crosses will pay dividends if we can connect. Matt Flynn is capable of making those throws but then we will need to run against a suspect Dallas defense. Expect…
